I don’t think you’re being a snob for being upset that you can’t afford something that you really want. I totally understand the frustration and I’m sorry that your invitations won’t come out the way you want them to, but maybe you’ll fall in love with something else along the way.

Have you looked at Minted.com? They just launched a line of letterpress invitations, and are less than half of the (extremely reasonable (for letterpress, at least!)) price we paid for our invitations.


I was really impressed with them, and they almost always have some kind of 15% off promotion going!

@BabyBrain:  Aw, s’ok. They are nice. Keep in mind some people just put them in the trash after receiving them, though, so at least you’re not overextending yourself financially. Not all guests would appreciate them the same way that you do.

you can also have a custom plate made – they’re not that expensive from what I’ve found – and have someone run it through an embossing machine for you (a lot of scrapbookers have them if you know any) it might not be quite as fancy was what you’ve seen but it could be a good compromise!
