    Thanks. It kind of pained me to add the add'l cost of the replacements (which I ordered today) + postage, etc. in my budget spreadsheet. For what we have now paid in total for this fiasco, we could have had letterpress invites!

    Oh well. I don't know if we will ever get our original ones back, but either way, it'll make for a good laugh and a good story someday.

    But I have to say I am pleased so far with my ordering experience with Wedding Paper Divas - thanks again Jess, for that tip! Very fast turnaround for their standard invites, and I only had to pay $10 extra for rush processing. Plus they had a couple of coupon codes on the site for an add'l 10-15% off, which took some of the sting out!

      I HEART wedding paper divas! So glad you went with them! We used them and I couldnt have been happier. We also had to re-order and the new ones came in like 2 days and they gave us a HUGE discount for the second batch! Good luck!!

        Uggh, what a pain.

        Just have to extend a strong recommendation for weddingpaper divas. Their customer service is amazing. The font on my invitations was really small. I think that their default size is 9. I called them to complain (nicely of course!) and they reprinted them 2 sizes larger at no extra cost (and no shipping cost).

        This is the invitation that we got Floral Flurry Signature White Wedding Invitations in orange.

        This is the STD Branch of Flowers Signature White Save the Date Cards

        I ordered both my STD and invites through them - and I'm looking at ordering my TY notes as well. And they send a lot of coupons through email.

          Frazali - I looked at the exact same invitation you got for myself! Great minds think alike! But they didn't have it in anything close to our colors, so I got something else. Were you pleased with the final product?

          I'll be getting mine no later than Thursday of next week. So impressed by this company.

            That's so funny! I think that the orange and fuschia color theme is really common for destination weddings, but I love them together.

            I love the final products for both the STD and invite. The quality and weight of the paper is top notch. And I've gotten a lot of compliments on them! You should be really happy with them.

            Which ones did you order?

              I agree - the paper quality is great - we were really happy with ours

                Yay! What a relief it is to hear that everyone thought the quality of the invites was good. I was a bit dubious on this, since the replacements from WPD ended up being so much cheaper (even with expedited processing and shipping) than my originals. (OTOH, the originals had thermography printing, so it's not really fair to compare)

                We ended up with Contemporary Swirls Signature White Wedding Invitations in merlot. Our colors are Red Burgundy and sky blue. WPD didn't have anything that quite matched those colors, so we went with the merlot invite and I'll be wrapping the invite and enclosures in blue satin ribbon to get our color scheme in.

                I thought the thank you cards looked nice and reasonably priced, so I was tempted by those, too, but we want to go with a photocard from our wedding for our TY cards.

                      As an alternative to the originals, you have chosen great invites - I think your guests will love them.

                      You'll have to post pics of both sets... when they are in - and you have a minute to breathe... re addressing all of those invites is a chore! (a similar situation happened to me).
