    For those of you on a very strict budget and are looking for very, very simple invitations, I could get 40 of these sets for $40.95 (includes S&H). The set includes the invitation with matching envelope, matching reception card, and response card with envelope. Do you like these or are they too simple?

      I really like them. They are simple but classy. Good choice! I would jump on it!!
      For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

        they are nice, and I'm all about simple invites.

        but honestly....I could make them for you for half the price! seriously, you can make these for MUCH less than what they're charging. It's just laser jet printed onto cardstock paper. If you have a good printer, the only cost you'd have is the paper.

          But where would you buy paper like that if you were going to do it yourself? I like those :o)

            You can buy card stock at many local places (ie. staples, office max, craft stores, ect). You would just have to cut out the invites and cards.

              Heidi, are you offering? :-) I did think that I would be able to make them myself, but I am SO artistically challenged and I have no patience. I might be able to do the invites, but what about the response cards? That seems too difficult for me to do!

                Response cards would just involve measuring & cutting. I could offer, as soon as I finish mine! :) haha

                  You can buy pre-cut response cards. I like this site: Paper Source - Do Something Creative Every Day - spend $100 or more and receive free shipping. They come in different colors too so you can match it to your wedding color(s).
