I’m at the point where I seriously have to start working on invitations and I don’t really know where to start. I’ve been to a few places, but I really don’t want to spend a lot on the invites since people just throw them out. Where did you order your reasonably priced invitations?

I ordered ours online through American Wedding (theamericanwedding.com).
They have a wide range of options and prices. I was like you, in that I didn’t want to spend a ton. We just went with a simple silver border invitation but again, they have a ton of options.

Vistaprint! I got 60 of them with personalized envelopes, rsvp cards and decorated envelopes, and reception cards all for $140! Theres always some sort of discount code floating around so that’s where you get your big discount!

I got mine from Olivia Stationery (www.oliviastationery.co.uk). He did a variety of hand-drawings of our venue for all the stationery and a gorgeous monogramme too.

I bought kits from Michaels – they turned out beautifully and a lot of people thought they were printed professionally!

I used Invitations by Dawn for my invitations.
I almost ordered from Exclusively Weddings until I got a catalog in the mail and fell in love with my invitations.

I searched http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com and http://www.minted.com for inspiration, then I designed my own invitations and had them printed for next to nothing at a local print shop. If you had asked me two months ago if I’d be “designing” my own invites, I would have told you to climb a tree. 🙂 But it was actually very easy, they look beautiful, I was able to find the fonts I wanted for free and the print quality and paper were exactly what I wanted.
If you don’t want to design your own invites, http://www.vistaprint.com has super inexpensive options, and they are constantly having sales. You can get a free wedding kit from them which will give you an idea of the paper and design options.

Micheals, we got the brides diy wedding boxes. I seriously do not recomend them. I wish I would have just paid the lady to do them… lol. They were such a huge pain and I am STILL glueing little pearls and ribbon on them…. it’s so much work to make them not look cheap and plain.

I got mine from MagnetStreet. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them. There are always discount codes and they look much more expensive than they were. I got 100 invites, reply cards, information cards, inside and outside envelopes, velum and envelop liners for $350 with a discount code for $150 off. It was way more than we needed but it turned out really nice.
The biggest draw for me was that just about every part of the invitation was customizable which seemed to be just about the only way we could find a design we liked in our color scheme (which Fiance was insistant on!).
If you have time order samples before making your decision. Most sites offer free samples and it’s worth the few days delay to make sure that you are getting the quality you want.

We purchased ours from Pear Tree Greetings and I have never had such AMAZING customer service.
