I ordered mine on VistaPrint.  Their customer service is AWESOME!  I actually bought a Groupon deal, and got them.  I ended up paying (with the Groupon) about $100 for 125 invites with envelopes, envelope seals, reception card, ceremony card and response card all with envelopes and 125 of each.  A few came in with lines down them (obviously from when they changed the printer cartridge mid print).  I called them and I had an additional 20 of each sent to me free of charge.  I highly recommend them!

We found a calligrapher on etsy who also does invitation designs and printing. It was the design that drew us to her. We got save-the-dates from minted because we wanted magnets and collected vintage postcards to use as the RSVP cards. Stationary was something important to me so I took a lot of time to look through options. Minted and Wedding Paper Divas are ALWAYS having sales and coupon codes so they can be a good resource. Good luck!

My original plan was to DIY.  I went to etsy to find someone to create a printable file so I could just print and put them together.  Afttho thinking about all of the things go have going on and my lack of time, I decided to have her design and print them.  I’m using Larissa from paper cake designs.  She did an excellent job with the mock.  I will share pictures when I gehe them.

William Arthur (via Paper Source though, which I would not recommend honestly, even though they fixed all the issues). The invitations did come out beautifully though.

I suggest

  • vistaprint.com
  • weddingpaperdivas.com
  • invitationsbydawn.com

You may want to figure out if you want preprinted envelopes, etc.  Some website are more DIY while others will do more for you.

@sugabunny:  I worked with someone on Etsy for templates and then I will be ordering from Cards and Pockets for pocketfolds, envelopes, monogram seal, and the invitations. Im going to get the belly bands from Paper Presentation. I will DIY to put them together.

We used www.exclusivelyweddings.com/.

The process was very easy and they send you proofs via email. They shipped perfectly!

We went with a simple silver and white pocket design: http://www.exclusivelyweddings.com/Weddings/Wedding-Invitations/Wedding-Invitation/Pocket/Stylish-Duet-Wedding-Invitation

The RSVP is a postcard so you can avoid the inner envelope which works for us!  The only pain is that we need to tie the ribbon around the invite but we have more than enough time to do that πŸ™‚

I went with vistaprint and used a free wedding chicks template. My original budget for invitations was $200-300 for 30-40 including postage, and I ended up paying about $60 total. I ended up going with that option because I honestly couldn’t find the design I had in mind within budget anywhere, and then I just found it there for free on wedding chicks! Linen finish with vistaprint is gorgeous as well πŸ™‚

I am using wedding paper divas (http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com).  They did our save the dates as well.  Good quality, reasonable prices and quick service.  If you order samples, they send you a 20% off coupon with them.
