Disclaimer: We are sending out our invitations early because over half the guest are Out of Town.
After many man hours spent designing and researching where to order the various different items needed to bring it all together, I am pleased to reveal our invitations! Hooray! I designed everything myself in photoshop, working off various different ideas I found online (thanks Pinterest) and incorporating our own personal touches. The only thing I would change, now after having done all this, would be to have bought the yellow A7 outer envelopes from Cards & Pockets instead of Paper Source so I could’ve saved $.10 per envelope. Oh well, you live, you learn!

All done and said, including postage for both the RSVP envelopes AND the invitations themselves, we spent $270 ($160 invitations/$110 postage) for 130 invitations which I think comes in pretty low all things considered. What do you think?

Super cute!!! Not including postage, our Save-The-Date Cards, pocketfolds, invitation, three insert cards, and envelopes for 50 households came out to just under $200. So you did very well!!
