    I’m a bit confused. Are you looking to get your invite or your save the dates printed? I like them both as far as style, but one is obviously a STD and the other is an invite…

    For paper quality I would go with the better of the two, which if I understand you correctly would be Wedding Paper divas.

    I think you should get samples from each company and then decide. That’s what we did with every one we were interested in, and some were very obviously on flimsy paper.

    Definitely go with samples to see which you like better (it really is better to hold them than to look at them on the computer)

      We went with weddingpaperdivas, and while I found the website very easy to use I would say their paper quality is probably similar to that of vistaprint (but I never got vistaprint samples).  There was a shipping snafu, which combined with my procrastination meant we got the invites at the last minute, and when I received them there was a small, but noticiable crease in the middle.  I didn’t have time to have them reprinted and it wasn’t a HUGE deal, but in my opinion they should not have made it through their quality control check.  So I liked my invites, but it’s not like I’d recommend wedding paper divas without reservation, and I suspect they would be more expensive than vistaprint (although they do always have coupons).

    Edited to add:  If you are doing pocketfolds, paper quality won’t matter as much (since they will be glued in the pocketfold), but getting samples to see which matches better with the pocketfold will be important.

    Ive had invites for several things printed by vistaprint.

    I have never been disappointed in the quality of paper or designs they offer for such a great price.

    @FutureMrsChaney:I meant to, but then it was Christmas and I was crazy busy and just never got around to it.  Again, it wasn’t awful, but someone should have noticied it before they sent them out!  The times I have talked with them, their customer service has been great. 

    And definitely try the invite in the pocketfold! 

    Here is how mine turned out.  In the pocketfold the crease isn’t terribly noticable.

    The pockets came from cards and pockets.  I bought the cardstock mats precut (because I’m kind of lazy and scared of crafts), as well as the belly bands, envelopes, and little squares for under the stickers on the belly band at paper and more.  The stickers were of course from weddingpaperdivas.

    I’ve ordered from vistaprint (my dad’s 60th birthday) and def had no problems. The cardstock was thick & had good quality so I really can’t say anything bad about them. I’m probably going to order our wedding invites from them too – their prices are pretty reasonable.
