ours were made from a woman on ETSY. Not sure if that counts or not. But- We have had lots of compliments on them. They are printed on post-consumer waste paper which goes along with our “green” theme.

I hated my experience at the stationary store!!   I found it to be very overwhelming.  They had samples of the different colors of cardstock and font, but they only had one sample of each invitation and it was hard for me to imagine what the finished product would look like.  I am also a control freak and when you ordered it from this store, they gave you zero options to customize things like the font, wording and layout.  Also, girl who was helping us kept misspelling sooooo many things on our paperwork (like my first AND last name).  She was the one who would actually be placing the order, not me, so that was making me very nervous!  Basically we just sat and looked at book after book after book of invitations that kind of all looked the same, and were out of our price range.  The only ones that were affordable were the Weddingstar ones, which I knew I could order myself on their website cheaper.  We stayed for over 3 hours and left emptyhanded.

I ended up ordering mine from weddingpaperdivas.com. Their quality is excellent for the price, they let you customize everything, you can see everything exactly how you want it before ordering, they do frequent discount codes, AND you can order $1 samples!  We used them for Save-The-Date Cards and invitations.  Their customer service was excellent and they shipped my invitations overnight for free. From the time I ordered until they were at my doorstep was less than 1 week.  I cannot say enough good things about them!!

Here’s a pic of my Wedding Paper Divas invites… I ordered the pocket folds from cardsandpockets.com, and I DIY’d some of the inserts, bellybands and monograms, and address labels.

I did not use a stationary store but I worked with Reaves Engraving for my letterpress invites – I found their prices to be very good and their service was beyond incredible – we had to move the wedding date so I am going to reorder and am debating if I want to change anything

Here is the whole suite – they do the calligraphy (machine but with a calligraphy pen) for $1 per envelope too

We got this design, from betsywhite.com (I don’t have a picture on my work computer of our actual invites, but they were the same color as their sample, just we did a combo of block and cursive fonts):

BetsyWhite was a pleasure to work with, and I felt like the invitations were a really high quality for the price. We also got our programs from them, in the same pattern but with gold ink, and they were beautiful! I wish I had gotten the gold for the invitations too, but I wimped out. I definitely recommend them for the non-DIY bride!

I’m ordering mine from GreenQuince on etsy. She’s a very sweet girl, very responsive… and I looooooooooooooooooooove this invite suite so hard.  I’m making the RSVP and Info one long piece with a perforated strip to tear off the RSVP.  I love love love the long tie envelopes. I’ve never seen anything like them!  Getting mine in grey.

Sample:

We are DIY-ing ours, thanks to the help of a crafty family member or two. But if we weren’t, I would have fought pretty hard for these from Wedding Paper Divas…

Both of these were done by 2 different Etsy sellers. I added the crystals on the black and white ones.
