    I used olio.style - modern wedding invitations, stylish baby announcements, unique custom stationery
    peggy was awesome...they are based in cali...she put me in her "testamonial" lol I AM FAMOUS! just kidding

    they can even do pocketfold for you
    I like the olio site. How did you like the your invitation, have you gotten them yet? Did you like the over all process? I already contacted them and received prices but am nervous because theres a deposit before beginning and then a lot of back and forth to design the invitations. Was it worth it? I'm only gonna need about 50.

People got back to her much quicker than my friends who had traditional wedding invites (which believe it or not most people misplace it and/or lose it. Good luck with this I hope it works. Are you using e-invite or just sending out a general e-mail created by you?

      Yup, invitation and eRSVP all on the website. I decided evite is a little informal and that personal email is better, addressed to each guests individually.

      The reason I went with this route is because I've seen many people, including members of my family lose the fancy invitations (some of them hand-crafted!)before the wedding and actually have to call up their friends for the wedding info.

      At least with the website, they know to go there anytime. Also, if there are any updates as there surely will be, they can get it all from the website.

      Works for me and saves money.

        Sherri,

        I love the website you gave me. I really like the one with the palm trees. Which one did you end up getting? Did you get them already? Did you like them? Do you have any idea how much the palm tree ones cost?

          Glenda, I found great invitations online at: invitingsmiles.com
          They have some nice, trendy options which worked for my budget. The quality is excellent and service was fast. I ordered 100 invites and received them in two weeks. You can choose to have them assembled, or pay less and assemble them yourself. I paid to have them done - don't have time to glue 100 invites! Plus you can request two free samples in the mail, and get a free picture of your invite emailed to you for proofing before you're order is printed. Good Luck!
