I designed my own, used a local printer  and ordered envelopes online. I think my total cost for 100 invitations, 100 RSVP postcards and envelopes was 100. PicMonkey would be a great option for someone who wants to design their own but doesn’t have a lot of experience. You can find a ton of tutorials online.

I will be using either Photoshop or InDesign to make ours then just use a print shop for the printing. I will probably order a few mattes just to pretty them up a little but I want something very simple.

I’ll be using Microsoft publisher to create my invites. I only want something simple taht gets the info across, and so I bought some plain ‘greeting card style’ blank cards from Michaels (total for 100 invitations and 100 thank you cards to be was $23) and I’ll be printing our monogram on the front, and the classic invite wording on the inside. Invitations are SO low on my priority list, and so I dont mind doing a DIY. Plus SO is very excited to help out, so thats a bonus!

Sumero:  I have done mine in publisher, they look extremely nice and my work has allowed me to use their printer and paper for everything (we are a college) so I have access to pretty much anything I could ever want.  I just had this conversation with my Mother-In-Law as they end up in the garbage, no one really cares about them, so no i’m not spending a ton of money on them.  RSVPs are nice for the older people that want things a traditional way and are more comfortable that way.  I would like to have a paper confirmation just for my own personal organization as I don’t always have my wedding folder with me.  But that’s just my opinion

I bought the “print at home” invitations at a local Ollie’s outlet store.  A box of 25 were $5.99.  I printed them at home and they looked amazing.

I designed my own multi-piece invites and my save-the-dates in Photoshop, and all my place cards (bookmarks) in Word. I didn’t print those myself; however, I did do my programs from home (on Word, again) and they turned out great!

We designed ours using Microsoft Publisher because we had some graphics on there. We then ordered cardstock online and had them printed and cut at kinko’s. So if you print 3 on a page (for example), you just give kinko’s a sheet template and they cut them all for you. They charge per cut (on the whole stack), but it was between $1-2.
