@ShennaB2b:  Definitely plan to use Vistaprint!  I love their prices and they have some really cute invites!

I got “invites” from Vistaprint.  I used oversized postcards with the matte paper.  That also allowed me to print on the back and not need enclosures.  Before you buy anything on there, sign up for their emails and they send you coupons/sale stuff almost every day.  FYI Shipping is about $7 – so might be cheaper to keep buying small batches of free items.  For 100 invites (oversized postcard, matte paper and uploaded map) and 100 RSVP (regular postcards) and shipping it was $39.

Darn you lucky bees who can buy your own alcohol to serve!  That is NOT an option in my area!  I’d be paying about $5 per drink my guests would consume.  Needless to say, open bar is out.  Cocktail hour (or 2), wine with dinner and then unfortunately cash bar.  Good thing that’s the norm where I’m from!
