I designed mine in Photoshop and printed with Vistaprint! That part was cheap and easy. I bought the envelopes from a paper store, as well as gold pebble paper which I used for belly bands. I also embossed our names in gold, and printed envelope liners which increased the cost but I love how they turned out. I printed our address on the plain white RSVP envelopes with my inkjet printer. Overall I was really happy with the print quality of Vistaprint and would recommend doing it this way.

I designed mine myself and printed at home on pearly/metallic linen card stock, then put them together with the gold foil wraps and ribbon by hand. A friend of mine with cute hand writing addressed them for me. The whole thing cost me less than $100 for almost 150 cards, which I think is good considering the quality of the paper. It was a very long process. I had my save the dates printed at vistaprint.com and they were lovely, also a great option.

I looked *forever* at all the big invitation companies and on Etsy, trying to find something in the budget and beautiful.  I even had one custom painted for me and hated it (so much for staying in the budget).  At last I finally found a printable one on Etsy that is beautiful and pretty much what I was looking for.  Had it printed at Vistaprint on their linen paper, and did it during a 50% off sale.

This is what mine will look like. I sourced a lot of places and most were $10-$12 per invite. Mine ended up being $4.

I was very budget conscious and also didn’t want to spend a lot on additional postage.  We had seal and send invitations which cost $88 for 44 invites,  but that did include being addressed,  which was a huge time savings,  especially since we planned our wedding on just under 8 months.  The invitations only required standard postage and the RSVPs required postcard postage.

I only discovered this website about a month before our wedding… I wish I would have found it earlier as the other Bees who posted here have beautiful invitations which they are able to do even more inexpensively !

Here is a photo of our invites.

I used zazzle! I found a design I loved and then modified the font/ wording to fit our wedding. They often have discounts and free shipping so I waited for those to come around to order. I then added fabric and twine myself
