We’re going through a family friend who owns a print shop so we ordered the invitation paper set from kelly paper, and he’s going to do all of the printing.

Right now everything is designed.  I will start printing, cutting and assembling in February.  I’m doing pocketfolds.  I bought from three different suppliers because I needed a specific cardstock that came in 8.5×14 so I could make belly bands from it, and I needed the matching 6.5″ square matching envelopes.
 

pocketfolds – paperandmore.com

stardream metallic cardstock (malachite, couldn’t find it anywhere else) and rsvp envelopes (stardream malachite), 6.5″ square envelopes (Classic Crest, solar white) – paper-papers.com

80lb 8.5×14 Classic Crest cardstock, 130lb 8.5×11 Classic Crest cardstock – paperpresentation.com

I almost ordered paper from paperworks.com but I think I didn’t because it came in huge packs and I didn’t need that much.

I am DIY my messages in the bottle invitations. I do not have them all the way done to take pictures. I have been doing them in steps since i started so it is a little easier on me than doing one by one.

I bought my bottles from a wine bottling company. I bought two packets of parchment paper from Wal_mart in the secretary aisle. And, the sand is from Home Depot and the seashells are some collected from beaches and others bought online.

I also made my shaker card STD and my paper came from paperandmore.com (blue, cream, and green) I got transparencies at Office Depot as well as a huge roll of double side adhesive (i cut it to size with a big knife..well, my fi did). I used the same sand and seashells listed above.

My Future Sister-In-Law is also engaged and she is usually invitations that you print off yourself but are already made. I got them from Big Lots for two dollars earlier in 2009. they are from Martha S collection.

If you don’t want to diy: try etsy. There are so many good designs on there that I loved but I’m too crafty to pass up making my own and I have LOVED making them and have been so proud when people say those look amazing/professional/and such

I’m DIYing as well.  I made the pocketfolds myself from cardstock from Craft Warehouse.  I designed the invite and all the inserts myself…I will be printing and cutting them out soon.

I ordered my envelopes from Paper-Source.  (I LOVE their envelopes) & rsvp envelopes from envelopemall.com.

I wish I had the patience or the talent to do DIY but I don’t and I am realistic about it. Thank goodness for ETSY which is where we will be purchasing invites from.
