Look online at Minted or a similar website. They have some really nice options for a reasonable price.

Have you done STDs? If you have, do your cheap and nice option that may take some time. 


If not, then do whats more reasonable time wise for guests.

90% of your invitations will end up in the trash.  You’ll probably keep one as a keepsake.  Your parents might keep one as a keepsake.  That’s about it unless you have that one sentimental friend who also keeps all their concert ticket stubs.  

Just find something nice and simple online like minted or vistaprint or an etsy seller where you can just plug in your info and get it reasonably quick – something that gets the job done and move on.  They don’t need to tell the story of your everlasting love or symbolically represent your personalities – they just need to not look like crap and relay important information about your wedding.

Have you checked Costco Photo Center for invitations? $13.99 for 50 or $17.25 for 25.

$17.25 for 25:



$13.99 for 50 (includes foil-lined envelopes):



You can filter by color, number of photos, and orientation.

mikuru :  Hi Bee. I know the feeling about wanting to get things out sooner – we have half our wedding guests travelling 3000kms.

We wanted to save on cost too, but still wanted them to look like a wedding invitation (ratehr than just some printing on a card). We settled on a site called giantinvitations

We were able to get all our invites, our wishing well cards (2x different kinds, as we’re requesting those who travel to not contribute) , a pamphlet on accommodation and “things to do” here, and a separate invite to a pre-wedding event (through vistaprint) for $450 including postage to guests ($1 per invite here in Australia, it’s a total pisstake). Our actual invites are beautiful – laser cut card, pearl paper. It’s everything we wanted!

Everything was printed and to us within 1.5 weeks. I would definitely recommend maybe leaving the invites to yourself, rather than your planner, if you’re wanting to save money. They almost never go with the economical option.
