Hello beauties of the wedding wire universe! So here’s the thing... I cannot make up my mind on rather to get my invites from Minted or Vistaprint. I got my STD magnets from Vista and I loved them! But this is the official invitation and I’m so torn. I love minted designs, but I also love how custom Vista allows me to be as well! Who did you ladies go through or plan on going through for your invites and what are your thoughts on these two companies?

And YES I know minted is more expensive 😩😂

    I used vistaprint. I loved my experience and my invitations and std. I ordered them on a Sunday. On Monday, they had a higher % off (30% to 50%). I sent them a message and they refunded the difference immediately. I haven't used minted for anything, but I will forever be using vista just for their customer service.

    Did you order samples? That was the kicker for me. We did Vistaprint for save the dates and Minted for invites.

    I would do minted. Totally just my opinion but I think the quality is much better. Good luck!

    I did Vistaprint for save the dates and Zola for my invitations. I love the ones from Minted. I would go with them if you have room in the budget.

    We ordered samples from all the companies that had ones we liked. We ended up ordering from Minted.

    We will be getting them from Vistaprint. I got a custom made design done from Etsy, and will transfer that to Vistaprint to have them printed. I’ve ordered from them multiple times in the past and have always been happy. Honestly, I don’t care if they’re not super top notch quality because they’re going to be thrown out anyway. I personally don’t think invitations are something you should spend a ton of money on.

    We used zazzle for our save the dates as well as our invitations. Zazzle was able to customize the rsvp cards for me which was super helpful.

    Paperculture.com! They are a sustainable company, and constantly have coupons and Groupons. I loved mine and the envelopes were really pretty as well

    We ordered ours from Shutterfly! Between Minted and Vistaprint, I'd go with Vista and use the money you save on something else

    We did minted for both and they were fantastic. You can customize more than you probably think, just utilize the “special notes” section! They have artists review and send you as many proofs as needed for you to approve.

    have them send you some of the free samples and they may also include a coupon.

    I found Aliceinvitations.com - what I love about them they do free samples! I will probably buy pocketfold invitations with rsvp and information card for .... $1,25 which is totally amazing for me (regular price without any coupon)

    This makes a lot of sense... spending a bunch of money on paper... my pricing for Minted for the invites I loved (which were foil) were almost $400 including RSVPs. I used a coupon and got it down to $300 something... still unsure. lol

    I used Minted for my Save the Dates and plan on using them for my invitations as well. Their customer service is phenomenal to me. Very responsive and always ready and willing to rectify any issues you may have! Also, customizable too.

    I LOVED vista print! I didnt get my STD magnets from there but I did my invitations. I too loved how much I could customize, I completely changed one of the layouts that had a color and element I loved. Plus wait for a coupon and I got them so cheap! 100 for like $60!

    Hey Quinesha,

    For me, I think I'll most likely be going with Vistaprint solely because they have a great customer service team, and their prices are very reasonable. They also have a good selection of wedding invitations. I ordered samples from both Vistaprint and Minted. Minted invitations are REALLY nice, don't get me wrong. If I could afford going with Minted, I would go with them. But Vistaprint is a great option and invitations are inevitably going to be thrown out. All the best to you! Your wedding is just around the corner! How are your plans coming along, what else do you have to get done?
