We got the standard version of the paper for our save the dates and invites and they were totally fine for us. We did post cards for the save the dates and just uploaded our own design and paid a little extra and they mailed them for us!! Best decision ever. Mailing the actual invites was a PITA but we wanted to send stamped rsvp cards with some for the older folks. And so we stuffed the envelopes and did all the addressing ourselves. I’ve seen prettier invites, but honestly, it wasn’t something I cared about much or wanted to spend money on. I wanted people to know they were invited and know where to go and spent my $$ on a great reception instead.

Vistaprint is amazing! I used them for save the dates, return address labels and wedding invites. The pictures turn out wonderful. Paper is good quality. Customer service is wonderful – I screwed up on the wedding invites with a time, contacted their customer service and they sent me a new set free of charge with the new time on it. They have deals nearly all the time…if they don’t have one when you’re wanting to use their printing services and have a little time, keep checking back and they will likely have a sale within a week.

I got our save-the-dates from Wedding Paper Divas, but decided that I didn’t want to spend that much on invites. I ultimately ordered our invites and programs from Vistaprint and loved them! Granted, I wanted something nice but not too OTT or pricey since most people just throw invites away.
I upgraded the paper to the thicker matte, which was a good call. It didn’t cost much more and made the invites feel more substantial.
FWIW, I had good luck in terms of color accuracy from Vistaprint. The invites came in the exact grey-green shade I pictured. However, the Save-The-Date Cards from Wedding Paper Divas came out way too dark and with poor color contrast, so that was a disappointment. I didn’t think to send them back at the time, but I probably should have.
