I had originally planned on doing DIY invitations but after the guest list came together we discovered that there was no way we could do it all by ourselves! I’ve sent away for some samples and catalogues but I was wondering if anyone had used a certain company that they had a great experience with that wasn’t too pricy. Thanks!

I used Papyrus and loved them, one of their stores in NYC. I purchased my invites from the Checkerboard selection and they had a ton of discounts available. I was able to get 15% off my entire order after also receiving 25 free invites (I needed 175 so I ordered 150 and got 25 free) plus they threw in 5 extra invites. The experience was relatively painless and the sales girl was so helpful.

I ended up using The American Wedding website and they were both cheap and produced nice invites (we got 100 invites, RSVP cards and thank you cards with preaddressed return envelopes for somewhere between $100-125). I also know that Wedding Paper Divas has a nice rep, though I’ve never used them.

A great way to save costs is to put the reception information on the invite. This means you no longer need a reception card, and depending on the card stock used you can save on postage too.
Wedding paper divas has great stuff, but it can get a little pricey too if you aren’t careful. Ultimately I suggest going to reputable place locally and giving them the amount of invites needed and your budget most can lead you to colllections that work.

I’m new to this whole board thing, so let me see if I can have this comment make sense!
My best friend used http://www.123print.com/Wedding this website for her wedding invitations last year. She sold me on the idea of using them as well! Reliable, totally customizable and hers looked super high quality but for less.

I used the giant Invitations by Dawn, that you see in every wedding magazine. They don’t get great reviews online, but they had an invitation that I really liked. It was also one of the least expensive options.
I did have a little trouble with shipping but I called them and they were super helpful. No matter what company you go with, you should absolutely stay on top of your order! Anyway the invitations were so much more beautiful than they looked online! So I feel pretty comfortable recommending them.

You can try Etsy they have a lot of vendors on there that might be in your budget too!

I used The Green Kangaroo. They were really helpful, the invitations were beautiful, and they have invitations in a full range of prices. Initially the price per invite may look higher than other websites, but that’s because they price the multi-part invitations with all the pieces, rather than making you add it up by piece. They also have a really nice selection of colors, both in the papers and the inks, and they do custom work if you ask. Oh, and their website was by far the best I saw – you can save your draft pieces over and over, even if you haven’t purchased anything, and you can email your saved information (which makes it easy to have your girlfriends or family give you input, even if they can’t be right there).

I second Etsy! Lots of great sellers on there, including myself! Very budget friendly and I’ve never met a seller that was bad to work with. Good luck!

I used Aubrey Atlas – she’s incred. She’s so passionate about what she does, and she ALWAYS goes the extra mile to make sure I’ve got the most amazing invitations Of All Time. She’s been the only vendor that has kept me 100% stress-free. She planned my friend’s wedding, so that’s how I found her, but you can get in touch with her through her blog: http://atlasandcampbell.blogspot.com. (Our invitations and stationery are the WM suite!! EEE so excited!)

I got some shower invites from Wedding Paper Divas and loved them, their wedding designs are beautiful, lots of choices, and shipping and service were all great.

I’m going to order from Jean M. I know I’m a little premature in responding, but I actually have 2 notes. I saw Jean M in a magazine (and then heard about them from a friend), and saw that they do custom invitations. So I ordered a custom sample, I chose the invites I liked best, and then selected the paper and ribbon colors. I just got my samples in the mail, and it will be sooo cute.
My friend is getting married here in a month, and she ordered from Jean M too, a single card with a ribbon – but she said she loved them with her monogram! And, they are soo cute, and look great. She had a great experience.
It seems like they offer lots of options.
