    I'm also in the process of choosing my invitations as well.
    I like the invites at The Green Kangaroo...Unique Wedding Invitations and Stationery by The Green Kangaroo
    They can do just about any color combo and style.
    Good luck!

      A friend of mine is going to introduce us to 2 designers she knows and then hopefully one of them will be interested in helping us out. We haven't met with either one of them yet though so I'm not sure who we'll be going with. The designer will likely just give us the file on a disk and then we'll get the posters printed at Kinko's or something. These 2 individuals are free-lancers who do designs for event promotions and magazines etc, so they aren't really in the invite/stationary business :)

        My best friend just got married and she had so much fun designing all of her wedding materials (save the dates, invites, table cards, etc.) that she's going to branch out and start doing it for other couples. She's looking for a few couples to start with to build her portfolio.

        I should mention that she has been an award winning graphic designer for more than 15 years.

        I hope it's kosher to post this, but it's a really great offer. Feel free to contact me for her info. I have photos of all her stuff and it's lovely :)

              Ugh!! I've been trying to find an invitation I like online and so far I've been striking out. My FI wants a traditional invitation and not a passport or boarding pass type. I'm thrilled he wants to be involved b/c its a complete 180 degrees from 2 years ago.

              Thanks for the links in this thread ladies. I will start looking once again!! lol!!

                I hope you post these when you have them done! My FI loved the idea when we saw it online and want to send out engagement announcements in this style.

                  I will definitely post them when they're done! We probably aren't sending our invites out until Jan though so it might be a little while before they're finished. We haven't met with the designers yet.

                    I know exactly how you are feeling. My FI and I spent hours looking on-line but could never come up with the perfect invite. There were some that we liked but they did not come in any fun colors. So we found one that we liked but did not come in fuschia and we went to our local printing shop and they are going to design it for us. Of course they will change a few things but it is going to be exactly what we want and at 1/2 the price of going through an on-line invite company. The also printed our STD's and did a great job.

                      I had the same problem -- I think I spent a million hours looking for wedding invitations online and another million hours looking in stores in person...I drove myself crazy. Then I finally Kenzie Kate. My camera is broken so I can't post pictures of my invites but they look pretty similar to the two below...

                      She was really great to work with and super flexible! Also, FYI...she has a blog that she updates daily that I've become obsessed with -- great wedding related info -- you should check it out if you can!
