Wow, and I thought invitations were spendy in Seattle!  I can see how if you need a smaller amount that would make a huge difference.  I’m sure you’ll find something that’s perfect!

@bretonvirgniia: I think a lot of us bees would love to help if you could just give a few examples of what you like! Simply because we’re in the same boat as you and it’s sometimes easier to work on other peoples material than your own. πŸ™‚ After reading your post and looking at some of the designs presented by minted, I grabbed my sketch book and made a quick little draft:

It literally took 10 minutes to put together, so if you just give us a little more to work with and I’m sure we can get you to a stage where you might actually like your invitations. πŸ™‚

I love the designs on Minted, but it can really add up.

@bretonvirgniia:  I do full wedding suites for a side job – creating a printable is way easier then you think. A couple hours, tops. Plus it’s practice. πŸ™‚ I have the templates, fonts, etc. It’d just be a matter of putting something together in an eloquent manner that suits your event.

(Plus you still have to print and assemble yourself, so I am not doing that much work.)

No pressure, if you wanna try it send me a PM. I don’t offer this often but my other brides are taking forever to make their final mock-up decisions and I am going stir crazy. But if not – that’s ok too. Like I said – worst case – just don’t print them out. πŸ™‚

We ran into the same problem; we just hated everything in budget.  So, we went with custom made rubber stamps from Antiquaria.  Theah eve lots designs to choose from, and they also do hand made invites.  The stamps range from $50-$110, and we were abl. To get paper from paper source really reasonably.  We are inviting about 400 to our reception so this was super cost effective for us.

@bretonvirgniia:  Thanks! I got a lot of compliments from family and friends… most agreed that they hadn’t ever seen something like it before.

Anyway, best of luck to you! If you’re stressing too much abouut it, just remember that in the end- most just end up in the trash anyway… πŸ™ πŸ™

I made my own I started at weddingchicks.com and printed them on card stock then added the rest. I used the antlers and flowers then got a paper cutter and made them more “me” added some color behind them some ribbon and burlap and they look great!

i couldn’t find invitations i liked either that didn’t cost a fortune, but on mixbook you can literally make your own. they have dozens of fonts, backgrounds, graphics, ect. you can also pick the kind of paper they get printed on.
