I am designing my own now, but originally I looked at Minted.com, WeddingPaperDivas.com, and Etsy. There is a lot of cute stuff out there depending on your theme and budget.

I did want to say that I got an email today that Vistaprint is having a 50% OFF sale, so if you were to get a file from Etsy and get them printed at Vistaprint that could be a huge money saver. I think the deal is only 2 days, and that’s a pretty tight turnaround; however, Vistaprint has all sorts of coupons out there. Another money saving tip is to shop in the business side of the side and not the wedding. The same products can be marked up on the wedding side!

reee:  I ordered the invites for my sister’s bridal shower from Wedding Paper Divas and our own STDs and invites from Vistaprint.  I found the quality to be comparable, but Vistaprint was significantly less expensive – especially if you wait until one of their 40-50% off sales!

Zazzle does a really nice job and has very heavy cardstock.

Ordered save the dates from weddingpaperdivas.com and our invitations from minted.com. Both sites were easy to navigate and had cute, quality products. Highly recommend. Look out for a coupon for both sites.

midwestbride14:  We spent about $750. That figure includes everything:  invites, RSVPS, 2 oz postage for invites, customized postage for RSVPs, and the pens I bought to do the envelope “calligraphy.” We had a coupon for our invites. We chose not to DIY, which may have saved some money, but it was nice not to have to worry about more than writing the addresses.

901bride:  Okay, that’s almost exactly what I spent, not including postage. I agree this was one place where I did not want to DIY!

reee:  This is what I probably spent more time researching, as I was picky and wanted to find the perfect one that didn’t cost a lot of money. I ended up going with Vistaprint. Nothing fancy, but itw as a good deal – and I ordered when they had 40% off. Everything was aorund $235, and we had over 200 guests.

Cardsandpockets.com has lots of options and templates to make designing easier. Also, a great gallery of previous customers’ designs.
