@random123:  Don’t worry yourself at this stage. My cousin in England got married a couple months ago, and the invitation was nill, ceremony and reception a 10.

Don’t feel bad!  In the long run, I’m sure you’ll be happy you saved money where you could.  I’m getting mine online, nothing fancy at all, becuase I would rather spend money on decor, food and liquor! 😉

I did simple invites too– then I took the money I saved from those and booked a super fancy dinner one night of the honeymoon! I’m positive we will enjoy the dinner more than the fancier invitations.

Don’t be. All of those maps, pretty envelopes, decorative bands, etc., end up in the trash or the recycling. You say the invitations you made came out nicely – that’s all you needed. The money you saved by not getting elaborate invitations can be put toward some other aspect of the wedding. If it allows you to include a few extra guests, or get a really great pair of shoes that you’ll be able to use down the road, or do something cool on your honeymoon, etc., it’s a worthwhile tradeoff.

Have you already sent the invites out?  If not, you could order a rubber stamp for the envelopes or invite.  Rubberstamps.net is a good company I’ve used in the past.
