    I do think it's really pretty...and I would say my deciding factor would be how many invites per sheet? As much as I LOVE nice paper and such...I could not bring myself to pay $6+ per invite for my wedding. I'd rather spend that $$ on other stuff. You know?

      It's beautiful paper, but your nutz for wanting this! Did that help?

      Perhaps you can buy it and use to to scrapbook wedding photos, instead of having to create all your invites with it. It is beautiful paper, but I just couldn't even consider it.

      BUT if you have to have it, I would get the 1st, slightly more expensive one, it is just nicer. Lotsa help I am, right!

        I also fell in love with a pricey paper. But, I designed my own invites and rather than using large piece for the invite, I printed the invite portion on plain cream card stock and then "framed" it with the paper. I also created a band out of the paper which wrapped around the whole thing. It kept costs way down and I have several usable scraps for placecards, etc. I got all my invite stuff and some inspiration at Papersource.

          That is a great idea! I hadn't even thought of that. I had some invites that I loved with the band around them.

            I agree with Tammy. People will look at it and think Oh, that is nice, then it will be forgotten. You will save it forever, but most people will not. And, your parents will save it and love it no matter what paper its on. So, if you have a lot to send out, I think you should look for something similar that is much cheaper. Spend your money else where!

              I like the idea of using it to scrapbook your invite (if you scrapbook). I couldn't spend that much on invites. People tend to toss them out anyway.

                Amy - I was looking for paper for myself and came across this Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

                Although, I still think Bridget's idea above to use this paper for a bad around the invites is a great one!

                  If you're going to use one sheet for each invitation, then I'll say it- you're nuts! lol

                  If you can get several invitations out of each sheet, where it only costs you like $1 or $2 per invite, then I say go for it if you love it.

                  What are your plans?

                    I love your honesty Ladies!!!

                    I’m going to try and design something myself but I’m having a hard time since all I have is Publisher and I’m not a computer techie J I also don’t think the color on my laptop is in sync. When I see my monogram here at work the green looks neon, ugh! So I’m sure you all think its neon green instead of a nice lime or kiwi green, lol.

                    I’m at work so I can’t respond to you all individually, but to answer some questions…

                    I do want to throw in turquoise (or aqua/teal, whatever name) into the mix. I saw a really cute pattern on a bag which had all three colors (chocolate, lime and “blue”) and I thought looked great together.

                    I wouldn’t print on the paper, it would only be an accent either the belly band and or the background insert (I would print the on white/cream paper) and all the scraps can be used for tags for my starfish and/or palm fans.

                    I should get the sample by the end of the week.

                    Paula- I don’t think its velvet, although it does like it in the picture. I’ll let you know. I would actually prefer to make the card pocket out of a print and have a solid belly band, but that would be too much $$$.

                    I wanted something like this but can’t find brown instead of black. Again, I’m going to try and design something myself, but I’m not sure if I’m better off purchasing the paper.

                      Amy, if you're planning to use this as a belly band I think it would be awesome...definitely a dramatic touch. If you're doing pocketfolds, get the metallic kind and this will go well with the metallic look.

                      By the way, your logo looks lime on my monitor.
