I am trying to choose between a few wedding invitations that I found online, and would really appreciate some opinions!
My fiance and I are going for a classy theme, ideally with gold foil or embossed type and thick paper.
I found this design on Bella Figura, which looks amazing! However, it seems that they are extremely expensive 🙁
Another company that I am considering is Invites & Co, and I like this design from them:
What I find really cool is that you can also have a matching website and even a wedding app for your guests in the same design! I think that having our own wedding app could be a real hit 🙂
With regard to the price, it seems that we can get the whole package with Programmes, Thank You cards, Table Stationery & also an app or a website from Invites & Co for roughly the same price as ONLY the invitiations from Bella Figura.
I also looked at Wedding Paper Divas, but didn’t see anything that I really liked…
Any suggestions on what we should go for? We really want a “wow” factor but don’t want to overpay… 😉

I highly recommend Dinglewood Designs based out of Georgia. They do letterpress only and their designs are insanely gorgeous. They were the most reasonable price I could find for letterpress. I just received my invitations in the mail and I am beyond thrilled!

Hi there! Most designers could easily do the foil imprint for you, its just finding a printer to get them printed at. The letterpress is a little harder – this is specialised and if you want to go down that route, the earlier poster has suggested someone (or I would try Etsy).
In terms of wedding websites, if you know anyone that designs websites, this can be set up SUPER low cost. Some places do them for free. I used Squarespace for my design website and its $12USD a month or something like that – and they have free templates. So don’t let that sway you! The app is kinda unique, but probably more a gimmick then anything else.
If you need any help with the website, let me know and I’ll be happy to provide support 🙂

Absolutely! I haven’t taken them out of the packing yet because I’m giving them to my aunt to do the calligraphy (so the bows aren’t actually apart of the invitation). This is the Verbena Suite.

Hi! Thank you so much for the opinions!
I actually decided to go with http://www.invitesandco.com/ because I tried the demo version of their wedding app and LOVED it :). I will post the pictures of my invitations, once I get them too 🙂
Good luck with your preparations! xx
