Hello beautiful brides! My wedding is next year August 15,2021. But I have already started looking for invited and save the dates to get that out of the way. But everywhere I check invites are over $300. Where did you get your invites or save the dates from?
We used Minted for both our save the dates and invitations! I loved the customization and high quality feel - they have several sales throughout the year (and I want to say may even do a smaller discount when you sign up for your first order?) so if you go with them, I'd say go ahead and create the invites you want, then when a sale hits you can just hit "Order!" - Black Friday will be your best friend as a late summer bride
I did use Vista Print for all of my thank you notes and they can be a price friendlier option and have frequent sales!!
We used Shutterfly! The prices (of course) depend on how many you need. Shutterfly was for the invites, and it was about $220 for 120 invitations. I hand made our Save the Date cards and had them printed through Walmart for only $140, and we ordered 200 of them (because we forgot to count the groups instead of the individuals, oops!)
I used Costco and had more than a few people comment about them. They were fairly simple, no inner envelope and required regular postage to mail. I also used them for STD and did postcards also, cheaper postage.
