I did our save the dates through vistaprint and was very happy with them, especially for the price! Then I found our wedding invitations online at Invitations by Dawn. I stumbled across the website one day and they just happened to be having a sale that ended that day so I got a really nice deal! They came out really well and I was very happy with them.

I did all of my own calligraphy and addressing of the envelopes but I did have the return address printed on the RSVP envelope and on the outer invitation envelope on the seal side. I’m not sure if they offer addressing, I would guess that they probably do since so many other places do.

 

Good luck & happy planning!

Buy a design off Etsy or get them designed and printed locally. You’ll save money that way. 

Vista print is terrible quality and not worth the price IMO.

We used Minted. They offered free addressing (such a time-saver and it looked way nicer than I could have done) and a free wedding website if you purchase thier invites. The quality was great and I was very happy with our choice.

We made Main cards from Minted because I loved the designs and liked the free addressing. I will say that we were more impressed by their Save-The-Date Cards than invitations, but maybe that’s because our invitation design was a plain white background. PRO TIP: Always wait for a coupon code/order during a sale and/or free shipping. Plus definitely use the Refer a Friend program! Also, sign up for their newsletter before you place an order so you can get free shipping. If you order samples it usually comes with a 15% off coupon too! I say all this because Minted can get kind of pricey so I had to find creative ways to make the cost lower.

We then placed the cards in a lace slider from http://www.cardsandpockets.com, and then made jackets from cardstock from my cousin’s friend’s print shop in India.

It was a hassle to do all this DIY assembly but they’re looking great!

I wanted to have traditional, formal invitations with engraving and double envelopes, etc. I had a hard time finding an online service that did the double envelopes and had the traditional styling I wanted. I was looking at samples in a local stationary shop and really liked some of the William Arthur styles, but that shop would never return my calls and was frustrating to try to work with. I found finestationery.com by googling, and ended up ordering my William Arthur invitations from them with a big discount. They came last week and are beautiful! I’m so happy with the quality and the service. They were prompt with proofs and all in all the process was really easy. I recommend that website highly.

We did vistaprint for the invitations and Costco for the thank you cards to keep the prices low. Costco has fancier things for wedding invites but we really didn’t care to pay for them.

We got two packs of print your own from Party City for the holder and envelopes. I upgraded the cardstock for the invites, designed, printed and cut them myself. I also made my own belly bands. Alttogether we spent about 60 cents per invite suite (suite included: holder, invite, two enclosures, RSVP and thank you card). We got a ton of compliments on them, and we had the satisfaction of knowing that they were 100% unique

I know a lot of people had success with Vistaprint, but I couldn’t find a style I really liked on that site, and I didn’t find it very user-friendly. Darling Husband and I used Paperless Post for our (free!) electronic Save the Dates, and Paperless Post also ended up having the perfect invitations for our wedding. I ordered our invitations on Black Friday; they had a fantastic deal that day! Here’s our Save the Date and the generic version of the invitation we used.
