@@tasha682 - no thanks needed!  That's going to look great! My sister went that route. She picked up a simple but elegant set with a rice paper overlay at Staples.  We worked on the wording etc and word template, then had Staples print them up & invited a couple of people over to help us tie the ribbons on at the top. No one would have ever guessed she didn't have them professionally done.

@@trbutler OMG Yours turned out AMAZING!!!!!! And $50 for 50, you can't beat that. Does that include the envelopes you purchased and the starfish charm? Love love love

Yes that includes the paper, envelopes, and charms.  I printed them at home, but purchased most of the items at Michaels or AcMoore and used 50% off coupons.  I got the pocketfolds from paperandmore.com and was lucky enough that the color I wanted was in their Almost Perfect section, when I got them 2 weeks ago they were $4 cheaper, they were $26.99 for 50.  The card stock was from Michaels and I used a 50% off coupon.  The charms came from Etsy and I also got some from AC Moore and used a 50% off coupon.  

 

I found that when I needed several things from Michaels and AC Moore it was helpful to take my fiance or step daughter to help buy more then one thing with the 50% off coupons.

 

The only thing it didn't include was the postage.

You could also take a look at vistaprint. Not quite as elegant, but they do have some destination/beach wedding designs that might work, and they have the whole matching set with menu card, reply card,etc. And they always have discount coupons.

 

Worth a look. You can get quite creative with some of the designs and colours.

 

Happy planning!

Thanks for providing websites, I am creative but I want my invites to be fabulous so that people will hurry up and start their payments. Plus you will always see something that looks better than what you created.

We're using Minted for ours. They aren't as cheap as some like Vistaprint, but I thought the prices were very reasonable and the designs are much more creative

catprint.com - more paper variety than vistaprint! Also they can send you a sample of their papers so you can see the texture/weight

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
