I am starting to look at invitations to get an idea of what I want and where to order from and I feel the same, totally overwhelmed. We are having a small, out of town, wedding. I want to include hotel info so guests know how to book rooms using the block/group rate and I also somehow need to let guests know our ceremony is at 1:30 but dinner isn’t until 6 AND give them ideas on what they can do in the inbetween time.   This is going to be the one thing that I keep putting off, I just know it.

I ordered mine through zazzle, I was able to get 100 invites, 100 RSVP cards, customized stamps (for wedding invites and RSVP’s) and customized return (pre-addressed) stamps for $165!  Zazzle has so many coupons that you can find by using google.  I ended up getting 70% off and free shipping!

Mine are from Momental Designs – Kristy is designing exactly what I want and it’s great fun working with her! They can be costly but they’re hand painted and truely unique. I can’t wait to get them!

Don’t be too overwhelmed by what information to include, if you want to minimize stress over the invitation wording, just look up “invitation wording” and use a standard wording!

As far as the information about directions, guest accomodations, etc. – I am planning on printing out small cards directing guests to our website, where I listed all of that information. I thought it was wasteful to include a huge sheet of paper. But our guest list average age is ~40 and most of our guests are internet savvy. The older relatives can call us if they can’t make it to the website 🙂

Here are  some ideas, I dunno what your budget is – think about how many families/couples/singles you will be inviting, not total number of guests. I almost made that mistake and almost printed 150 invitations by accident! lol
