    fredthebasil :  c’mon now. We know people have different ways of carving up their budget. I know people who’ve paid for hand caligraphy to address their invites. And thats just on the ENVELOPE of the invite, not even the actual invite itself. A waste of money to me (and probably a lot that received it), but they wanted it.

    We went to a local place that is considered more “high end” and I’m pretty sure our invites were less than $6 each. For ALL the pieces (RSVP card, envelopes, directions, invitation, etc.)… We had a simple design but used beautiful paper for them. Keep looking around because you can do better than that!

    scissorgirl :  Thanks, for the defense. laughing

    A local specialty printer was much higher, for their invitation suites. A number of the guests told me they actually kept the invitations (not just the immediate family and bridal party). My friend and my cousin even told me they took them into work, to show their co-workers.

    They say that invitations are supposed to “set the tone,” of the event. My daughter and son in law had a formal, evening wedding, and guest hosting/entertaining was of the utmost priority.

    I ordered mine through vistaprint. One of my bridesmaids is good with photoshop, so she did them up and then I had them printed. Vistaprint was a bit of a pain in the butt to deal with, but I paid 56CAD plus tax for 90 invites and 90 thank you cards with envelopes for each…
    I’m going to print the insert cards at home, since they can be black&white and on lower weight paper (all they’ll say is basically “here are the meal options, please rsvp online”)

    I used Zazzle and they were awesome. I loved the designs they had to choose from and their Customer Service was superb. My name was spelled wrong on the first batch but they helped me fix it and sent it expedited. I would definitely recommend them. Oh! and for 90 invitations, 90 RSVP postcards, and customized return labels it was $180. Thats including the little bit extra I had to pay for the mistake . GL!

    I got mine from China (AliExpress) and they were $94 for 100. My seller also sells them on Amazon.

    CanadianBeeMTL :  i bought a beautiful template off etsy for only $12.50. it included the invite, detail page and rsvp card. it was an instant download and all i had to do was fill in our info and then print them. my mom bought a new small printer on sale and a ton of nice cardstock paper. we printed them at home and then cut them with a paper cutter along the designated lines. we had to order the envelopes and rsvp envelopes online because we couldnt find the right size anywhere in stores. i also bought some thin turqouise ribbon to tie them together with. it was so much fun and easy. all in all we probably spent $100 dollars.
