I see a lot of people on here going for vistaprint and minted type of places. But I love those fancier invitations…not neccesarily black-tie and glamour, but just created by a small design company or designer (possibly custom-made). if you did, could you share your invites?

My MOH’s sister has an event planning business and also does invitations/greeting cards. I gave her a few different ideas and she made 5-6 different samples for me and this is what we decided to go with

I did custom letterpress invitations from an Etsy seller. Unfortunately, I didn’t actually get any professional shots of my invitation set. Here’s a link to his Etsy shop though.

I ordered a template from a designer on Etsy and customized it. Here is the original:
And here it is customized (i grabbed a screencap fm iphoto – the black outline isn’t there, it’ll all be white, and edited out the location)

I worked with a local designer and printer on a custom suite and programs. I was dead set on using Reina font and couldn’t find any existing designs with it so I went the custom route and I LOVED them. If you have time to consider the custom route then you should!
I don’t have access to a photo now but I can pm you one when I do if you like.

Our invitations are in Vietnamese and English since most of our guests will be Vietnamese. My father found a lady in Houston who can make multi lingual wedding invitations! We also got our invitations done in Korean and English since my fiance is half Korean.

I used Momental Designs on the recommendation of my planner and my invitations turned out beautifully! Kristy and her team were awesome. I had a phone meeting with her to discuss what I wanted then sent her some images and colors. They created a first draft and then we went back and forth on edits. There was no limit to the number of revisions we could make.
They have designs you can work from and slightly customize or you can create an entirely custom invitation suite. They also add hand painted touches to every invitation which is really special. You can also have them create coordinating day of paper goods like menus, table cards, programs, etc. I HIGHLY reccomend them.
Fun fact: they did the invitations for Jessica Simpson’s most recent wedding!
This is not my set, just an example from their website.
You can see lots more examples of recent invitations they’ve done under “current projects”

we got ours done from an Etsy Seller too! She did a lovely job & even fixed a mistake that I made. 🙂 we are getting them printed next week! This is the front (we are very into bears and have a subtle bear-theme in our wedding) and she did the back pretty and RSVP cards too

HoyaTerpDC: I love monumental designs. I’ve been drooling over their invitations for months…but they’re so expensive.
I have been looking into Paper Knots these days…definitely not as costly but still special.
