Hello! We finally set a date this week (YAY!) so we can start looking for invitations. Where to begin?!! Seriously, I’ve browsed a couple of vendors online as well as a paper catalog and…can they make this any more complicated? I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed here and need your help! Any tips to keep from going insane over a little paper?
Also, it seems that everyone is getting their invitations online these days. Any advice or recommendations on specific vendors? Anyone to stay away from? I tried looking up reviews on this site but was unable to find anything so I’m hoping to get some help from the beehive. Thanks in advance!

@sdbeachgirl: I ended up using a printing shop in my hometown, and paid under $100. I would just browse, browse, browse until you find something you love…and then figure out if you’re willing to pay hundreds of dollars for them. Many online companies will send you free samples, so you’ll know what you’ll get.

Hi there! Congratulations! I ordered mine from minted.com. I knew what our colors were going to be and browsed their site until I saw ones I liked. The ones I ordered actually helped set the theme and tone for the rest of the wedding. I played off them in other parts of the day.
I’m a pretty laid back, easy person. So once I saw ones I liked that were in budget, I bought right then and stopped looking. Then I didn’t give myself a chance to stress or go crazy looking at too many, which could get overwhelming. My suggestion is to narrow down colors and a style of what you are looking for. If you see one you love, buy it.
Good luck and best wishes!

I ordered mine from Exclusively Weddings. I found their prices really reasonable and the quality of the paper and embossing was amazing. I highly recommend them!
