I really want to save money on invitations and am thinking of buying online from somewhere like weddingpaperdivas.com. Does anyone know of any other sites like this? Or stores that are cheap? Also, how do I get the invites addressed cheaply? Do I have to find a separate company or can wedding paper divas do it (I couldn’t find this on their website)? How much does computer calligraphy cost usually? Thanks so much! Sorry for all the questions!

I bought pretty Gartner invites from Target. I think I spent about $70 for 100 invitations response cards and envelopes. There was a great post recently about how to cheat at caligraphy or you could just ask someone with nice handwriting/DIY

I don’t know about addressing the invitations, but we are ordering ours from invitationconsultants.com. (We are getting some basic ivory invitations with gold thermography and then DIYing invitation jackets to make them look a little more elegant.) An added bonus is that if you click to invitationconsultants.com through ebates.com, you get an extra 3% cash back on your purchase.

When I first started searching for invites online, I found a TON of websites. Try a google search with some specifics about what you’re looking for (a certain color, eco-friendly, price, etc.). Rexcraft, The American Wedding, baron*cards, etc, and you can also try a visit to your local stationery store if you’re not able to get a good idea of what you’re looking at online. I know we all do a lot of stuff on the web, but you could find a good contact for addressing from them as well.

I second july09bridetobe’s suggestion to check out Target’s new line through Gartner (called Letter Impress). They’re lovely, and so affordable!
Ms. Ballet flat wrote a post about them here, and this is the link to the Gartner Studios website.

Do you have a Party City store near you? I live in PA and the one in my area carries the major invitation lines like Rexcraft, Carlson, etc but at a 20-40% discount.
Also, I just saw the new line at Target and they are amazing!
