I’m so sorry.  Sometimes I get caught up in those sales pitches to.  I really think that the company should have a cooling off period where you could get all the money back.  That is a lot of put down on a moment’s notice.

I’m so sorry. That really does suck. But at least you learned something and your story can help other brides in their search for invites.

Ugh, that really sucks. I’m sorry that you had to waste that money.

Maybe you can negotiate to get the paper from them?  Or something along those lines, so your money wouldn’t be a total loss.

First off, kudos to you for getting a dress for under $640!!!!!  I can see how this situation would bum you out, though.  Maybe it would help to think about where else you have saved $160 and calling it a wash between those two items?

If you spent the same amount on invitations that you do yourself ($160 – which is totally possible), then you’ll have spent $320 on the perfect invitations, which in the end, is MUCH better than spending $640 on “okay” invitations.  🙂  I think in the end, you did the best thing for you!

I can understand you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much! As a matter of fact I’ve done pretty much the same thing… I wanted custom invitations and paid a deposit at least 3 times… NONE of the ladies delivered what I’ve asked. They keep on bugging me with some stupid designer rule!!!!


For example, contrasting colors — NOPE mine is a tone on tone wedding, but they keep on trying to change my wedding colors; OR they say they can’t get the rhinestones in the colors I asked… again, false, I know a lot of online suppliers that have those; OR they keep on telling me to simplify… I don’t want one of those “to the bone” invitation… I can buy DIY ones!!! I want a custom invitation that is stellar and appropriate to my wedding theme but no way I can get it.


I just hate this stupid “no clutter” trend, especially considering that mine is an Edwardian themed wedding so there is simply NO ROOM for simple stuff. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH


I hope you can find what you’re after!!!

Oh man, so sorry.  I think a majority of us have spent money on something they ended up not needing or couldn’t use or whatever.  Its so frustrating!  I’ve done it and I try to block it out.  I hope you can save the $160 in some other way 🙂
