where is the best place to get wedding invitations.. And do you know of places that sell the complete set? I noticed websites will offer the invite but than the RSVP care sepearte with an added fee.
How many different cards are suppose to be included with the invitation?? Any pics of inspiration would be great also!!

The invite itself, an rsvp slip (with envelope), information card about accommodation nearby etc, gift list/ info on a fund… lots to think about.
There is so much pressure these days for invites and save the dates etc. Too much stress and very expensive for my liking.
We sent a video slideshow and made it all very personal with images/ music etc. We included an email address to rsvp to. Everyone loved it and commented on the personalisation 🙂

We did Vistaprint, sign up to their website as they have a sale on every other day it feels! We ordered things over various times and didn’t pay full price once.
We did online RSVPs so didnt need an rsvp card. We had an invite card, an evening invite card (UK), and an info card. We also did separate invites for the kids (there were only 7 of them). We used the upgraded paper, and our only complaint was the envelopes were really flimsy, other than that I loved our invites

minted and weddingpaperdivas have great selections but yeah, they often come a la carte. I design invites as a side business and I most often get requests for invite + RSVP + an info card with directions and hotel accommodations. But more and more people are doing online RSVPs.
Also, here’s a really nice, convenient all-in-one option: https://www.minted.com/all-in-one-wedding-invitations

Be sure to order 1 per couple, not 1 per guest. So if you have 150 guest, most couples, you only need 75-80 ish invites.
We used Weddingpaperdivas for save the dates and Zazzle for invites since we found a Groupon. You’ll need to compare prices from different sites. Also, be sure you are buying invites and not just a downloadable template – unless you plan to print on your own. I highly recommend just buying them done for you. Printing at home doesn’t save too much by the time you add in cost of paper, cost of ink, and your time/sanity.

I looked at both Zazzle and Vistaprint as they had the best prices. We actually ended up going with ones on Etsy, beacuse our colors are navy and rose gold and zazzle’s and vistaprint’s “rose gold” isn’t actual foil, it just looks like it. So after my PIA Future Sister-In-Law called them mauve and said “most people will think it’s mauve” we went with an etsy seller who was VERY reasonable and did a fantastic job!

If you have a local Staples maybe look on their website. We got our invitations from Staples and were very happy with them! The paper was heavy cardstock and the envelopes felt sturdy and high quailty.
I believe Staples also sells “Wedding Suites” where you personalize and pay for all your inserts (Invite, RSVP, Extra Info etc.) on one bill – is this the kind of “complete set” you’re looking for?
We used http://www.anrsvp.com for our RSVPs and it worked very well. Our final invitation had the invite card and a separate info card with the hotel and RSVP website information on it, which we typed out in Word and printed at Staples on cardstock. We paid around $60.00 CAD for 55 invitations including invites, envelopes, and info card printing.

Just to add, we ordered the 5×7 Invite/envelope, an RSVP card/envelope (I wanted to do it online, but my mom was concerned with older family members figuring it out), and a details card that contained the reception details along with the hotel information.

Oh and be sure you take a complete invite to the post office to have weighted. You want to be sure you place proper postage so they don’t all get returned. A lot of invites with added inserts need more than basic postage.
