Where did you get your wedding invitations from? I really like the invitations from minted.com but for a whole suite it's so expensive in my opinion. I'm planning on ordering RSVP and guest accommodations cards in addition to the invitations, but I don't want to spend too much. Any suggestions? I'm going to need at most 100. Has anyone ever ordered invites from House of Brides?

    I actually bought mine from Michaels. It just so happened that the ones I wanted were on sale so I spent less than 40 bucks for 90 invitations. That included invitations, response cards, detail cards, and both envelopes.

    I got our invitations from https://www.elegantweddinginvites.com

    I got ours when they were on sale for $208 total with free shipping and I got them in the mail less than 2 weeks after ordering (wayyy faster than I thought). The company emails you throughout the entire process and sends you proofs via email prior to printing. Once you approve it, they make them in no time at all and send you all of the tracking information.

    They were packaged perfectly and they were very protected. The only thing is the invitations do have to be put together by you; which isn't that hard to do, and they do send you one assembled so you know how to do it. I put all of ours together in less than 20 minutes.

    I ordered 80 of them Smiley smile

    We decided to make our own RSVP cards because my fiance wanted funny ones instead of traditional ones so we saved money there.

    I would totally recommend working with a local print shop that also has creative design services. I think ours will end up being half the cost of me buying them and will include the invite, RSVP, and reception and travel info. Plus you can save on shipping.

    I designed and had printed 50 save the dates and cost less than $20. Online at like minted or zazzle was no less than $40 - $45.

    If you really love the minted ones you can check to see if they’ll have any Black Friday sales going on!

    I got STDs and invites through Vistaprint; I've used them for a number of occassions - and they do usually have a big Black Friday sale. I didn't, however, like the envelopes they came with so I bought some nicer ones from Cards and Pockets, which is a good option for invitations as well.

    I used Vistaprint for 20 invites, 20 RSVP cards, mailing envelopes, 10 thank you cards, 5 post wedding announcements, and envelope stickers. $90 with a coupon code. I bought wedding stamps from the post office $26.
