We’ve been debating back and forth about our invitations. Make them or buy them? VistaPrint or Etsy? I finally decided I want to get them from VistaPrint like the rest of our stationery so the design will match. I went online to get preliminary pricing, and ended up spending hours designing my invitations, RSVP cards, and programs. SO much fun! Here are the semi-final designs:
By going to VistaPrint’s Twitter discount site, I saved even more, and will end up paying only $100. That is UNHEARD of! That’s with a linen finish for a more elegant look, and just plain envelopes because the (free!) address labels will have the leaf on them, so that’s all it really needs. I turned note cards into RSVP cards, and the programs come with envelopes too so I can possibly use those to have inner and outer invitation envelopes.
That site continues to amaze me. I have already bought my favors (personalized pens), save-the-date magnets, engagement announcements, thank-you cards, guest wish cards (in place of a guest book), and wedding announcements from them, all in the same coordinated leaf design, which I love. It’s so simple and pretty, and just the right colors for our wedding. My co-worker spent $500 on her invites, RSVP cards, and envelopes alone. I’m sure they were much higher quality, but why pay TEN times the price when people usually just throw them away? I may have a decent budget for this wedding, but I never spend money needlessly. VistaPrint is my budget choice for all of my wedding stationery!
