oh my goodness, reading your post is like reading my own mind!  Recyled paper, and all!  I, unforunately, dont have much advice yet….I am a September bride and a bit behind you.  I would lean towards a simple DIY using the recycled paper that you want.  However, I wouls also err on the side of ordering onlne and saving your sanity if you have too many projects right now!

Ugh, invitations.  I just finished my third round of proofing (finally no more changes) my invitation order, and will pull the trigger later tonight and send the electronic go-ahead to print.  I have no advice for you.  I kind of wish that I had DIYed mine, but honestly there is no way I have time.  And I love, love, love my invitation designer, who has been tremendously helpful. 

I think that the Naturally Ever After is very nice, and (although this maybe circumvents your environmentally friendly goal) if you think they look a little informal, you can always order envelopes for them.  But it really depends on your wedding – if you’re having a black tie, chapel train, plated dinner sort of thing they might be a little informal.  If your wedding is more informal, they might be just right!  Did you order a sample of the Invitations by Dawn invite?  That might help.

You also might check what their printing times are.  I am thinking I will have to pay a little rush fee in order to get mine in time to mail before the postage change…  (procrastination bad).
