Costco or Sam’s Club. Priced at $17/25 invites (RSVP cards, etc). And I was quite impressed with the quality. I didn’t see the point in spending money on a piece of paper that most people are going to throw away. Yes, some will save it, but eh.

I used Ann’s Bridal Bargain. I loved the quality and their customer service is great. I had placed my order and later changed my mind about the font. I was able to talk to customer service online and changed it with no issue. I ordered 100 invitations, 100 RSVP cards, upgraded them to a linen finish, 150 place cards, and had RSVP card envelopes with a return address. It cost me $290 CAD.

I did mine on Vistaprint and honestly, I didn’t love the way they turned out but at the end of the day, I don’t think anyone really cared. I think if I could do it again, I may upgrade the cardstock but for us, a pretty invitation was pretty low on the list of importance for our wedding budget.

Vista print has almost monthly 40, 50, 60% off sales. I spent like $60 for my STDs and Invites (incl evelopes and shipping).

Even minted will have a 40% off sale coming up. If you aren’t in a huge rush, you can just sign up for their newsletter and wait for the sales to roll in.

 

eta – VP has a 50% off sale now until July 25.

jmf77 :  I LOVED our invitations and got so many compliments and they were quite inexpensive. I think we paid about $200 canadian for the design and printing (obviously stamps were extra). We also did not have RSVP cards. It was a simple 5″x7″ 2 sided invite

I used unicaforma.com for the design and she was great to work with. I chose my design based an option I saw on her instagram that I loved and then tweaked it to make it more “us”, she works with you every step of the way to ensure it is exactly what you want.

And then I got it printed on catprint.com which is also a great little site. I found their pricing to be more competitive than anything else out there and the quality was great!

 Vistaprint! I used the most basic paper for everything and it was not expensive at all

David’s Bridal has some nice looking invitations, and you can order samples so you’ll get an idea of the quality.  They also hae sales every so often so you may be able to get them for even less.

jmf77 :  we made ours in Microsoft word (tons of online easy tutorials – I’m not tech savvy at all) and uploaded to vistaprint to have them printed. I went to michaels and got some nice looking paper and cut those into strips to make belly bands. Our invitations were basic, but very classy and elegant….. and cheap!

I bought a template on Etsy and printed with Vistaprint. They currently have a 50% off semi-annual sale!

We used Zazzle for the exact same reason. We just did the invites and the RSVP cards, and it was $120 for 60 which included the envelopes for both.

 

Watch for coupons on all the sites- I believe I got ours for 30% off.

Would you consider electronic invites?  We did this for our rehearsal dinner and I just paid to have a few printed so I had them for the photographer the day of our wedding.

I used Paperless Post. We did our Save the Dates electronically, and I ordered our invitations on Black Friday. We got 48 invitations for $100.

Vistaprint has a sale right now if you enter SAVEBIG as a coupon code.

We used CatPrint and it was super cheap. I think it was around $100?
