    I am still a ways out from making my invites, so I don鈥檛 have a guaranteed plan yet, but I think I will most likely either be using a template or designing my own. I have a bit of experience with InDesign, so I was planning on using that. But we have a very rustic-themed wedding, so I will be making lace-look and kraft paper invitations like https://onplanners.com/invitations/rustic-wedding So plain graphics/text is all I will need to go with the simpler design.

    I am making my own, i have basis photoshop skills and just gonna print them on thicker paper that can go through a regular printer.
    Basis card stock comes in a few colours and adding a ribbon or band around them makes it look fancy. Also you can find free templates
    Also downloading free fonts is really is as well! Literally costs my time and $20 for the pack of paper

    Vistaprint!


    Can be a pain to use if you have a design background because they don鈥檛 have a lot of great customizable options. Although, so many discounts!!! Got ours for 50% off randomly a couple weeks ago. Great quality.

    Hi Kadi! I used Zazzle for my bridal shower invites, our wedding invites, our RSVP cards, our details cards, envelopes, and belly bands (the belly bands hold all the pieces of card stock together for aesthetics). The website always goes 50% off!

    I ordered beautiful Save the Dates from Vistaprint saying please RSVP on our wedding website. and then I sent out e-invitations from this website...so then at least everyone has a keepsake of some sort.

    They have them from staples and michaels! Quite reasonable too, but vista print also has food sales on too!

    I used a design off Etsy first but when I got it printed from vistaptint, the font was super faded. Wanted a Disney theme and found something nice from elegant wedding invites. I found the price not too bad, but also depends on what you want to get.

    I used Shutterfly for my invites, and they even had an option on their site to mail them for you if you wanted! I can imagine that it would be a bit pricey, but a convenient service i thought i would share!

    I was introduced by a friend of mine (who is getting married the month before me) of a shop on Etsy that has many many choices of templates. Once you have chosen one and purchased it, they send you the template and a link to edit the wording etc. I found this very helpful also when making matching signs for the tables at the wedding. Fairly inexpensive and I printed the finished items at staples - love the paper options. You can upload your own design to their invitation portion of their website and they will provide the envelopes.

    In case anyone is interested, the shop on Etsy is called "FabledWeddings". They also have different options of sets. The owner of the shop is super friendly (she even changed the colour of mine because I wanted the template but not in the colour shown). So if you see something that you like but you don't need all in the set or want something a little different - she is so accommodating!

    I actually started to make my
    Own last night! It is a ready box and we just needed to print out the inserts! It took us about 2 hours last night to get inserts made and punch out designs in the vellum!

    We used Stephita Invitations in Markham! I needed to use them in a pinch and they were fantastic! They had my order done on a rush basis without any errors.


    I even got thank you tags thrown in!

    I designed my own and printed them through Vistaprint. If you have the time, wait until they have a sale, which happens fairly often. You can get a really good deal on invite or what I ended up doing was ordering their Postcards . Depending on what size/style of invites you want their postcards end up being cheaper and they quality was great. Only downside is your limited on the quantities you can order. I ended up having to order 100 even though I only needed about 70. For me it ended up being cheaper than ordering 70 invitations.

    I designed my own and am having them printed at staples - when I compared costs it was cheaper for me this way instead of getting the whole invitation through somewhere like vistaprint.ca because I have my outer shell (cutting myself), then my invites, then 3 inserts! So it was cheaper for me to design a day out when I could have multiple to one page and then staples will print it on nice linen card stock and they鈥檒l cut them! Then I just assemble 馃槉

    Vistaprint has some beautiful choices. They're very customizable so you can change colors and fonts to suit your style. They have sales often so sign up for their emails and see what you can save.


    They also have a great customer service team that will usually replace invites if they aren't what you expected or arrive damaged.
    A friend offered to design ours then we will use an invitation site like Vistaprint or Minted to print them and pick envelopes that coordinate and all that fun stuff.

    Online is free so you can鈥檛 beat that! I honestly ordered 100 invites off vista print with a code for like 50 bucks and then ordered some colored envelopes from amazon for less than 20! I spent more on the stamps! Ha super easy! I did address them myself with a nice gold pen but you can print them at home if you have a decent printer and what something a little fancier.

    Oh geez that's crazy. I would keep trying. Minted also has samples they can send you. They are also nice but I found them to be more expensive.

    If you order the sample pack from vistaprint you can get a 50% code. I'll be getting mine from there. I don't want to pay a lot of money for something everyone will just throw out. They have a good selection.
