We ordered our Save the Date’s off Etsy (digital file) and ordered from vistaprint.  They turned out great.

Our invitations we were actually going to do the same thing, but ended up using Etsy exclusively as one of our pieces of paper (it’s a folding map) would have cost us a fortune to print as most printing websites required a minimum buy of about 400 pieces, which wasn’t practical (we are only sending out about 90 invites).  The girl we purchased them from can actually print them much cheaper than I could even if I could go out and buy my own paper.

If you are looking to save on costs, I would definitely consider Vista Print (they have a lot of cute designs!), or doing what I did and ordering the proofs from an Etsy seller and getting them printed off vista print.

I found other big name invitation websites to just be insanely costly.  Our invites are awesome quality for half the price of other places.

aleftina.kovalenko:  We went with Wedding Paper Divas, and I’m so happy we did. We got to customize our invites a bit without the hassle of designing it ourselves. Their customer service was fantastic – I made a mistake on the RSVP date, and was able to contact them before my order had been printed to correct it. They were so sweet about it! They send you digital proofs, and so nothing is printed without your final word.

Also, they send you a free sample packet so you can see their invitations in real life. Also, you can order specific samples for about $1 each. Here are the samples we recieved of the invitation we ended up going with. (Not our real names.)

I’m in the process of doing mine, kind of DYI, because money. I found ones I totally hearted on Etsy but they were nearly $6 each!! I found a patterned paper that I love on Envelopments and got the pockets and envelopes and envelope lines on Cards and Pockets. My invite is being designed by my friend and will be white with the same blue print and bronze starfish design. We are printing the invites and belly band stickers to match at Zazzle. The whole set, all pieces should cost me about $4 per set including postage.

I plan on using zazzle. My sisters from there turned out good. Also if you sign up for the email list, I’ve been getting coupons for 50% off invites. I hope I get one around the time I need to order mine!
