    Girls I need your help bad, I need invites for our wedding reception in Toronto. It's in 2 months and I haven't even done the invites yet. I got quoted thi ridiculous price for invites at one store...like $500 for 40, that's just crazy.

    So the thing I need help with is....wording o write on the invite. I have no clue, we will be already married and were just inviting people for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Here is the info if any of you are bored and want to help me write something up.

    Edyta Lorek and Terry Babij

    Place: Park Hyatt Toronto

    Address: 4 Avenue Road, Toronto, Ontario M5R 2E8

    Reception type: Cocktails and Hors D'oeuvres

      Edyta, are you wanting to do something like a traditional wedding announcement with the information for the AHR on the bottom? I might have an idea for you that you could easily DIY and not spend a ton of money...

      Hi Edyta...

      wht about something simple like this? You could get some realy good quality paper and print it off at home or stapls then just add some decorative ribbon in the color of your choice.

      As for the wording... you can take out the "wedding ceremony" and replace it with "wedding reception" or "celebration in the mariage of Mr. and Mrs. Babij"

        Ooh Edyta I like this one that Melissa found for you. I think it is short and very cute. And Sarah and Melissa are right you shouldn't spend so much money for these, you can easily make them yourself. You can either print them yourself from cardstock you buy and add a ribbon or I'm sure Ms. Martha herself (Sarah) has tons of DIY templates for you.

                Hey Edyta. I believe you are from Toronto and the girl I found to create my invites is from Aurora. She is amazing..they are really unique and creative and reasonable priced. For our invites she made little beach bags with the saying "Pack Your Bags" that you could actually open up and it had little pockets inside with the RSVP, travel agent info etc. She has many different ideas and styles. Her name is Jeromina and her company is called "Out-of-the-Box Ideas". She has a website with some samples. My FH and I were just really pleased with her work and service. Hope that helps :)
