Hmmm….If you are crafty enough to think that you can do them just as good as she can for the same price as you would paying for just 50 of the ones she’s making…I’d say go. I would personally because she does not sound very reliable to me. 

I’d go if I was you and just tell her her services will no longer be needed.

OR contact whoever you won the package from and tell them that the vendor they chose to do the invitations sucks and see if they can light a fire under her?

I don’t know.  I feel like you should somehow take advantage of the 100- but if she is being ridiculous communication wise…I don’t know if it is worth it.

This is the least helpful post ever, you are welcome.

Well, you have to decide how much your time and money is worth. DIY invites can be lovely, but they are a lot of work. They are also a lot cheaper. (Mine were $2.91 each with $1.62 worth of postage.) I figure that I spent about 10 minutes total time on each invite, and I have 120 of them. So it was a lot of time. I really happy with how they turned out, but 30 hours is a lot of time and effort.

I have a lot of invitation lust, and it would be fantastic to be able to have professionally done invites. They do look a lot sharper, and it’s significantly less time, but a lot more money. You need to factor in the amount of time that you’re going to spend chasing this woman, and the total monetary cost. How much will each of your 150 invites cost if you consider how much you paid for 50 of them? 

You have a lot of time until January, so you could chase your current vendor. But that being said, you could probably also find an Etsy vendor who can help you design something you love at an inbetween price.

Consider what kind of time and what kind of money you have.

Sorry. I rambled. I hope it was useful.

I would go. If you have a very clear idea of what you want design wise, find an Esty vendor like PP said to design your suite and take it to a local small copy place for printing and cutting. This lady clearly does not want or value your business! If she sucks so much at communicating, imagine if something gets messed up and you need a reprint fast?

I would wait a bit and see. Can you go see her in person, because honestly its better to get free invites than to pay for them

Dump her. Uncommunicative vendors are a bride’s worst nightmare, and you will probably end up spending more time chasing her down and worrying whether the invitations will get done than it will take for you to do them yourself.
