Hi Everyone

 

I am finally finished my invitespinkie.gif. I am not getting married util May 30, 2009 but decided to skip STD and send out actual invite. Afer everyone responds I will send out newsletters to those attending

 

Before finding this website I went to local stationary store for quote for same exact style except pricing did not include flowers, color ink , no assembly and other details. They quoted me $895 for only 65 invites. I couldn't imagine paying almost $1600 for 110 invites!

 

THANK GOD for this forum, I saved a lot of money!! I want to give a shout out to all the ladies here for their great ideas, could not have done this without you all. You ladies are ROCK STARS!!!
