We bought these at Joann’s with 50% off coupons:

They were $12.49/25 and we bought several packages.  We are embellishing them a little bit on our own, but they will still be way under $2.  I really wanted thermography printing, but it just wasn’t working out in our budget.  I know that Ann’s Bridal Bargains had some that we considered, but the ones that were in our budget were not what we wanted (the no envelope style).  While this is one more disappointment in our wedding planning (I don’t think I have actually purchased one of my “dream” items!), they will do the job.

Are you set on doing a suite?  If not, you could do like a seal and send. They are much cheaper than the suites and they include all of the same information. I believe I got mine for under $1 each. 


Edit: I know I really wanted the same style as you to begin with, but then I figured in the grand scheme of things I wanted that money to go towards other things that wasn’t going to be thrown away.

Vistaprint is very reasonable and right now they have a great deal on Groupon! $25 for $50 worth.. We bought a few groupons and just ordered in chunks to take advantage of the great deal!

Yak:  I am thinking about using Etsy.  I have a friend who used a shop on Etsy and her invites turned out awesome.  I found a few shops that will give you the invitation itself, an RSVP post card or RSVP card and envelope, and return address label, and envelope for $1.60/a set.  The shop I am considering gets cheaper the more invitations you order but 90 invitations are $1.75 each.  Maybe you should do some Etsy exploring!

I just ordered my invites from Vistprint, and 100 invites with envelope upgrade (includes return address) and 100 RSVP cards with upgraded envelope (with pre-printed address). It cost me $143 plus $13 in shipping using the current sale promo, SAVEBIG.

Yak:  ditto vistaprint.. $40 for 100- invitations, RSVP card, wedding website insert, and envelopes.. I designed business postcards to design an invitation and design the RSVP postcard so I used the 4×6 size as my invitation and the 5×5 as the RSVP postcard. They threw the business cards in for free which i designed to show the link for our website. $30 for everything through vistaprint including shipping and $10 for envelopes from walmart 🙂 it is sad though to think I will pay more for postage.

I got a print your own kit from Gartner Studios. They had them on sale for $10 per 30 ct box at the time. Included pocket, invite, rsvp, envelopes, ribbons.  They also sale them at Michaels and Joann’s so you can use 50% off coupons to easily get them for $20/box. I already had a printer with a fresh ink cartridge that i wasn’t using. I think I spent $50 on 60 invites before postage.

GirlyGirl24, what sight was that that you sent me the red invitations with everything included.  I am still learning how to maneuver around this sight.  Please help and thank you in advance
