You could buy the ones at Target you print yourself… they are about $25 for 50 invites. It just depends on exactly what you want and how much you want to spend.

If your a computer girl, you could always do e-vites. Save on shipping and you could easily whip up something ultra cool and loungy to send out attached to the e-mail…

Just a thought.

I was all for an e-vite or at least an online RSVP system, but sadly, a large portion of the guests aren’t exactly computer savvy (older Asian generation).  The Fiance and I are looking to get our invitations (Chinese and English) printed at Kinko’s on cardstock in colored ink.  The fonts were picked out (inspired by Miss Daffodil’s post about fonts) and we did a layout of all our inserts in MS Word.  I plan on personalizing them by decorating with rubber stamps in our wedding colors.  Everything will be assembled in a pocketfolders from Cards and Pockets ($1 a piece for solid colors and their service is wonderful).  I can’t give you a price per invite at the moment because I’m not done with this part yet!

I can’t recommend printing your own invites enough. I loved it so much. I printed fairly elobrate invitations, then cut them at Kinkos and spent $250. Though that is because I had to have expense pockets ($1.50 each, so that came to $135) so it could even be done for less.

Send a personal, hand-written note.  It’s perfectly proper for a semi-casual wedding, and will cost you only some nice stationery and stamps.

design them yourself and get them printed at somewhere like vistaprints.com, psprint.com, overnightprints.com. I printed my save the date postcards on vistaprint for $30. Folded cards on PSprint.com will cost around $70, with the outside in color and the inside in black and white. you can buy envelopes there also.
