Walmart in the party supply section has invites that all you have to do is print your info and then write addresses on the envelopes.

we were going to diy our invites but for the cost and time it was going to take we just used vistaprint instead. Our invites were super cheap ($100) for the invites, rsvp cards, envelopes, seals, address labels. Everything was on cardstock and we got sooooo many compliments on the design. Would highly recommend.

There are free templates online too – like http://www.weddingchicks.com in their downloads section, and you can customize the wording and colors.

Etsy! A lot of sellers sell digital copies of invitations that you can then print yourself, which really cuts down on the cost of the invites in the long run!

We did our invites for $80 with two Target wedding invitation sets.

I got mine from Michaels craft store. With a coupon, they cost me about $60 for a two packs of 50. They’re pretty basic, just the invite sheet and the response cards and then envelopes for both. I bought some seals to fancy up the envelopes and may add some ribbon or tiny rhinestones or something not too complicated to the invites. Here they are (obviously not started yet!):

If you want to save money and don’t mind ordering online, you might check the online vendor reviews and see which online invite store does the best job. Then check out their website. I got my invites from Paperdivas and everything turned out perfectly.

@galloway111: I have lots of extra invites (they come in packs of 50 and I only needed like 65) so I ripped off one to take this pic. Normally, though, they come two attached together with perforations. So you download a template from the company’s website and it prints the two and then you tear along the perforation to seperate them.

Mine were really simple; I’ll try to get a pic of it tomorrow. Basically I had some left over plain white cardstock, found a really pretty flower clip art and printed them with all the info in our colors. It wasn’t “Oh My Gosh! Wow!” but it got the job done. I put it all together with some ribbon.

I was going to originally buy pocket folds and all the other accessories with it but I though it over and it was just too much money for something I know most of the people I invited wouldn’t keep and I just had so much cardstock left over from my Save-The-Date Cards.

I did! We were on a budget and I’m soooo not crafty, so we did most of the design elements ourselves–label, invite, insert, and even envelope liner–and then had the printing and cutting done by professionals. The only hands-on crafty bit I did was to insert envelope liners into envelopes and stick on the labels! Here’s what we did:
