I am also on a $3000 budget, and will be using Vistaprint for my invites.


They offer TONS of deals, (a lot of the time you can get 100 postcards for free, and of course pay 6 or 7 bucks for shipping), and offer designs if you don’t know how or don’t want to design it yourself.


I know that a lot of people knock their quality, but I am a photographer, and use their papers for promotional pieces for my business.  Cheap, easy, quick, and beautiful!


Try also http://www.save-on-crafts.com for your decorating needs. I use them for my home and for my office and LOVE everything on there!


Good Luck!

I know a lot of people who have ordered their flowers in bulk from Costco and had really good luck! My sister got HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of white roses for her centerpieces, bouquets, and boutineers for maybe $400.

Dollar tree is an awesome resourse, I did all of my centerpiece flowers from there.  Thrift stores are great.  And if you have a Hobby Lobby there, watch the 90% off aisle.

I really second vistaprints, I have used them for all my paper products and most of it was free, plus the extra free goodies that I ordered.

@lizbethamber: I can guide you in making your own invitations, if you just show me an idea of one you like!

(I can email you a tutorial for how to make something similar)

You can print on zazzle or sonicprint for pretty cheap!!

@lizbethamber: Hi there! I’m also a Grapevine TX bride on a budget! You are so lucky to have it at the botanical gardens! That was my first choice, but I opted for a free park in my parents neighborhood. You should check our local craiglist. I have found SO many things from leftover weddings in our area that people are practically giving away! Also, I’ve been stalking the Hobby Lobby off Glade. They always have sales going on and there are a TON of ideas you can get away with on the cheap if you are crafty!

In fact- I don’t know how to do PM’s or anything yet- still a newbie- but I am also doing centerpices with mason jars. Since we are local- If you would be down, maybe we could work something out and do a trade since our weddings are a few weeks apart! 🙂 No worries if that sounds creepy, haha! Just a thought!
