ktb19 :  I used minted for mine. 

I did a design with foiled gold on an upgraded paper, (invitations, rsvps, rehearsal invitations, bands to hold it together) and for 85-90ish I think I spent around $800-$900 after a discount code from ordering my Save-The-Date Cards from them. 

They were sent out very promptly.

You can definitely do it cheaper from them, but we’ve received so many compliments on ours. I’m so happy we spent the money on them.

ktb19 :  I’d say Vistaprint is the most budget friendly but their selection wasn’t great to me.  Zazzle & Minted will have better choices but they’re a bit pricey to me.  You can also check out Etsy, where there’s a crapload of choices & pkgs that you can simply download.  I liked this because it gave me more control over how much I spent since I could have it printed by Vistaprint or Office Depot.

Vistaprint! I did my invites from there. I designed them myself and splurged on Linen paper for the invitation and details card. In total here is what I got:

  • 100 invitation cards – Linen Paper
  • 100 rsvp cards – Matte Cardstock
  • 100 details cards – Linen paper
  • 100 Thank you cards (stock design)
  • 300 return addess labels, some for rsvp cards and soem for thank you cards that say Mr & Mrs!

It cost me a total of $200CAD for everything. And they turned out BEAUTIFUL!

We used Vistaprint. I bought a template on Etsy for $12 (invites, “details” card, RSVP card) and uploaded them to VP. We paid $55 plus shipping for:

30 invitations

50 “details” cards

50 RSVP cards

140 return address labels

24 envelope seal stickers

Still waiting on them to arrive, but we got a sample of our invitation and it turned out great!

I used vistaprint and loved my invitations. They look like beautiful and more expensive than they were. I waited for a 20% off sale, and bought 80 invitations and 80 RSVP cards and it was about $110. I had a credit from canceling a mistake order when I ordered our save the dates, so with the credit, I ended up paying right around $80. I’m buying my envelopes separately as I don’t like the quality of ones that vista print sends, but I did get free envelopes for both the RSVP cards and the invitations.

ktb19 :  The really great thing about getting the templates from Etsy is that you can get the invites, thank you cards, save the dates, menu, table assignments & program templates all in one package if you want.  If you’re a diy’er like myself, this saves a lot of time of having to figure this out.

I used Paper Culture for my wedding invitations, and Botanical Paperworks for an information card (with the wedding website link, as RSVPs will be done through our wedding website). If you’re interested in going an eco-friendly route, Paper Culture is great! They use recycled materials for the invitations and envelopes. Plus, the company will plant a tree with every order. It is a bit more costly going this approach, but I wanted to support the company’s mission (as well as look for some greener wedding options). They do give a nice discount for signing up on their website, and when it was time to check out, I had received a couple additional discounts. Botanical Paperworks is printed on seeded paper, so guests could plant the info card if they wanted to. For the return address, I ordered a self-addressed botanical stamp to match the invite and info card. For guest addresses, I ordered a template off of etsy and will plan on getting those printed at Staples or Office Depot.

crabbycakes :  The floral images are veeerrrryyy popular right now! I purchased them off a website and had my friend who is a graphic designer put it all together for me. I also purchased the font! But they are custom designed!

We loved our Minted invites. High quality and they are great to work with. We did our whole “paper suite” and website (with RSVP) with them: invites, save the dates, table numbers, escort cards, menus
