As state in the title, where did you buy your wedding invitations? or did you make them yourself? Did you also add a RSVP card as well? How much did you spend on yours? How long did you received it? I would like to see how did they turned out, if it possible.
I need to find something and I live in Canada. I am considering vistaprint as I was originally considering doing it myself like my circle often do but ran out of time to do it.

We used a woman who has a private stationery business. They took a few weeks to order. For convenience we did add a reply card, even though they are traditionally incorrect, but only a reply by date with space for an RSVP in the guest’s own words. There were no “M” lines, X seats reserved for you, check the box or meal choices.

I got my announcements off Etsy.

I’m designing mine myself. I already have the Save The Date cards finished. Now, I’m designing the invitations. I used a more comical approach for the Save The Date cards but, I’m designing something more formal for our invitations. My Save The Date cards cost about $600 to print but, that’s because I used a reputable, high-end printer and chose to go with professional, custom foil stamping for the message. I also designed a custom wax seal symbol for us so that I can stamp our envelopes in a classy, eye-catching way. The Save The Date cards took about a week for me to print but, with my work schedule, it took about a month for me to design them. I’m positive that my invitations will probably cost twice as much because I plan on using the same printer (because they did a fabulous job) and because the design will be more complicated with additional foil stamping and embossing… but, I like what I like, ya know? And in my “circle”, I’d probably get a lot of shit for not designing this myself anyway lol!

I designed ours myself, had them printed with a local printer, and put them together. Total cost per invitation was like $1.20, and we had the main card, the reception card, the RSVP card and all the invitations and RSVP cards addressed. (printing was $75 total for 120 sets)
They would’ve been cheaper had it not been for my screw up when I ordered the paper. We also got our pockets from cardsandpockets.com and they were a great price!

We used Etsy as well! Our save the dates were created entirely by a designer there, who sent us the finished PDF to have printed. The invitations/RSVP cards/programs were designed by another seller, who just sent us the template and fonts for us to personalize ourselves.
I don’t remember the total costs off the top of my head, but printing them at Staples was pretty inexpensive, and both sellers got them to us quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to go that route again for any other invitations and what-not we need.

We also used Minted, and we got a lot of compliments on our invites. For Save-The-Date Cards we used VistaPrint which was fine but the quality was definitely noticably worse compared to Minted.

vistaprint. my Bridesmaid or Best Man designed them and we used vistaprint to print.

Vistaprint. they were the cheapest we could find and quite frankly, we were extremely unfussy about them since they get tossed anyway.

eurasianbee : I looked around as well and it seem vistaprint is the fastest i could received them. Which paper style did you use? Were they decent enough?

I had a graphic designer friend design them and I printed through really quality and inexpensive print vendor.

eggnoodles : I believe it was just standard matte. We liked them enough, but like I said anything a step above printer paper would seem nice to us! They have great customer service. They showed up with no envelopes (which is included) so I contacted customer service and they had a box of envelopes to me within days with no questions asked.
