How much do you want to spend?  You can get the invite kits at Michael’s or AC Moore pretty afforably with coupons. Also, check out etsy!  We found our dream invites there really cheap.

Good luck!

I used this kit:


After the 20% off coupon I found, it was super cheap per invite since it already includes envelopes and reply cards with envelopes. The foil is a glossy shiny without being tacky. The only problem I ran into was that the template they offered on the box was no longer available on their website (made me so mad!) but I can send you the template I created if you’d like. 🙂

There is also a white version, but Office Max doesn’t seem to have the kit with reply cards on their website… I wonder if they have them in store, or if there are other stores that carry the Great Papers brand.

Edit: it looks super underwhelming in the stock photo, but it really looks elegant in person. I’ll see if I can upload a photo when I get to a real computer.

@Happiestbridetobe:  I got my pearl shimmer cardstock from paperandmore.com and I was really happy with them!!! The paper is thick, elegant but affordable.

Vistaprint looks super cheap.

I designed the invites myself and had a local place print them: The pics don’t do it justice:


I also saw some super cute invitation suites at Target!

I was on davidsbridal.com yesterday and they had 100 invitations under $60. We actually found one we really liked because it’s so simple and that is what I wanted. They also have 100 under $100.
