Did you give her your word that you would work with her?  If so, I would ask her to quote you a fair price for time and pay her that amount.  I know you don’t have a contract, but if you shook hands on the deal…

If she’s already bought the materials… you can always buy the paper off of her to use for your Gocco printing!

I think it’s ok given how much time has passed, how much money you can save, and how crappy the economy is. Is that enough reason?

I would call her and simply say something along the lines of, "since we last spoke my fiance and I have decided to make our own invitations. It was a difficult decision, but our budget just won’t allow for the dream invitations you and I were working towards." And something nice about how it was a pleasure to meet her, etc.. If she has ordered samples then maybe you could offer to pay for (and keep) the samples.

I’m pretty surprised that so much time has passed given she said she would only need a few weeks. That had to have been at least 7 weeks ago. Does she still think she’s doing your invitations?

As long as you pay her for the money she is out and any time she’s spent, I think you will be fine. They probably haven’t spent that much time working on it yet, but there was bound to be a couple of hours there.
