I just wanted to share how I was able to get the invitations I wanted without paying $500+…
I found a really nice invite package I liked on etsy but it was way too much money! The sites with cheaper options just did not have what I wanted so I kept looking and looking… I found out that I could buy the rights to some images and backgrounds on etsy for $3-6 each and all I had to do was download the files!
Then I went to vistaprint.com and selected the upload your own design option. I uploaded the high quality images and background I bought to make exactly what I wanted for much less! I would suggest other people try this if they have a specific look in mind!!

Here is my save the date – I’m getting married in Maine so the antler theme works and my colors are muted mint and blush
I bought the antlers which came with 40 images and the background which printed out really well!! This is a magnet and I alread made the invites, RSVP cards and thank you cards which will be on vista prints highest quality paper. It cost me about 55$ to buy 70 STD magnets which was much cheaper than the invites I was finding on other sites.
We are also going to put the antler image on the place cards and seating chart and a few other things to continue the theme and tie everything together.
Hope this helps somebody!

yep, I bought an image from dreamstime and used it for a number if items (save the dates, favors, etc). Cost very little.
Only downside is I never found vista print to be super high quality, so for super formal/black tie weddings I’d stay away from their invites.
Side note: tj max and marshals sell boxes of thank you cards for cheap, so they’re a great way to save money on those. I think I got like 100 very nice thank you cards from them for about $15. I also spent a total of $8 on placecards by ordering a print-at-home set from amazon and doing it at home. it was SUPER easy.
