Yak:  If I remember correctly, I spent about $120, maybe it was $140, on invites from VistaPrint.  I got 60 invites, RSVP cards and envelopes, and thank you cards.  A super simple suite.  No extra recpetion cards, programs, menus, etc.  And the quality at VistaPrint is really great.

I found ours on Etsy. The shop was Peachwik (https://www.etsy.com/shop/peachwik). They were great to work with. I had a ton of questions about colors and formatting which were all answered really quickly. 

The specific design was: https://www.etsy.com/listing/127839001/modwik-mini-wedding-invitation-rsvp?ref=shop_home_active_19 We are having a simple outdoorsy wedding so these were perfect for us. I also thought the postcard RSVPs were cute plus saved $ on postage/needing an additional envelope. I got 75 invites (including envelopes and rsvp postcards) and 50 matching thank you cards/envelopes for ~ $130 including shipping.

Good luck!

Hey there, have you thought about doing a website at all? We are sending out single sheet 5×7 invites and referecing our website which will be used for RSVP, it has directions to ceremony/reception and ceremony/reception info. We only have 3 elderly guests that don’t really know how to use a computer, so we will just speak with them for RSVPing. 

I understand if a website isn’t for you though and you’d rather have the traditional invite suite. Good luck on your hunt:)

Mine cost $27 for 100 blank invitations, 100 envelopes, and 100 RSVP cards with envelopes. Got them at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. Bought blank clean edge ivory business cards, pack of 200 for $19 at Office Depot. The business cards will work as the Hotel information cards.  I have to send out 65 at 2 stamps each is $63.70. Printed everything at home and work. I only have a picture of the invitation. Total including Stamps is $109.70

We used a professional stationer and spent about $1,000 on 150 invitation sets.  We also had very formal wedding, so we needed a really high quality invitation suite.

Yak:  Absolutely!  I got 200 invites for a little over $300 at Zazzle. You just have to watch for sales and groupon deals. Also, I had my eye on Ann’s Bridal Bargains. The have seal and sends. The RSVP is attached as a rip off postcard. They fold up nicely and you send then without an envelope if you want. They sent me a sample. Look them up. They have sales too.

Yak:  creating a paper memory. Not the fanciest stuff, pretty simple in fact, but elegant designs at a good price. The only thing I’d say about them that’s not singing their praises is that the thank you note paper was a bit thin. However, they were $.35 each and came with envelopes and return address labels, so I really can’t complain too much.

I jus twanted to let you know that VistaPrint is having a 50% off sale right now. We did our Save The Dates through them for cheap and they have a good amount of invitations and whatnot on there. Another thing to keep in mind is postage, but I don’t know if you meant $100 just for paper. We are doing Postcard RSVPs to save a little money on postage. Hope this helps!
