Hey Bees! When are you ordering your invitations? and from whom are you ordering from?
I’m thinking I’ll probably create my own and order from VistaPrint… But my time is at a premium right now (New job, full time grad school, and wedding planning).

I already have mine. I got mine from Michael’s in one of those box sets, and I’m going to design and print them myself, they were on huge clearance and were the perfect color to match what we already had.

I should be ordering mine in the next couple weeks. Last month I got samples from a bunch of different websites (weddingpaperdivas, bed bath & beyond, exclusively weddings, mygatsby, magnetstreet, vistaprint), and now I’ve settled on a design and paper choices. I just need Fiance to sign off on them and then I’ll place the order! I ended up liking the options from MyGatsby the best. I loved the feel of the raised thermography printing and they have a ton paper options in matte and metallic. I am going for a more formal/traditional plain look (no graphics) so the quality of the printing and paper are more important. They had the best prices for what I want, but it’ll still probably come out at over $5/invite by the time I’m done (with enclosures, replies, envelope liners, envelope printing, etc).
Btw, I ordered save the dates from vistaprint and they came out awesome and were super cheap-$28 for the lot! I guess i feel like I can splurge more on the invites since the Save-The-Date Cards were so cheap 🙂

I made mine and had Vista Print print them out on really thick card stock! It saved us a ton of mony and they were perfect 🙂
And we tied them all up together and they looked so amazing 🙂
This picture is not great 🙁

I am hoping to order mine within the next 2 weeks – from Mygatsby.com! Samples were very impressive. We checked out a local shop and honestly, the samples from mygatsby were better!

I bought all the paper supplies and such from cardsandpockets.com and printed them at home. They actually look better than I had hoped!

We had planned on going through an online vendor in the hopes of saving money, probably Wedding Paper Divas, which is where we got our postcard Save-The-Date Cards. But after lots of looking, we just couldn’t find anything that we really loved, so I started to shop around with local printshops to have custom invitations made. The first few quotes we got were outrageous, so I was getting really frustrated – but then we found Paper Rock Scissor. They have been AMAZING and so fun to work with – and they were super competitively priced (barely more than a lot of online vendors)! We actually just approved our invitation proof last night. They look AMAZING. Can’t wait to send them out in a few months! (I’ll post pictures once we have them.)

I just got mine in yesterday. My Fiance and I designed them and then had them professionally printed. I am absolutely in love with them! Now I’m just kicking myself in the ass for deciding that I would bundle them all with a handmade heart shaped celtic knot! This is going to take AGES!
Here is the set. FI is so proud of his map <3
And here is a close up of just the invite with the frustrating, but adorable, celtic heart knot

We ordered our invites about a week ago from WeddingPaperDivas.com! the sample was gorgeous, we got our escort cards and response cards there as well. We wanted pocket folds but decided to save our money and just get inner envelopes! so far WPD has had great customer service & they were sooo easy to customize!
