    Hey ladies,
    I just wanted to share my invitation if you needed something cheap but still elegant (to my opinion - you be the judge). I never was a believer of paying a lot for invitations since most people read it once and just push it aside and forget about it ... and worse, don't even send back the rsvp card (I admit, I was one of them sometimes ... but never again now that I know what it is to be a bride). I have 330 guests and needed about 170 invitations and I am definitely not good with art - so I was not going to do try to do them myself especially with my busy schedule.

    Anyway, my family is French and his family is english so I needed a bilingual invitation. I ordered my invitations and enveloppes from Vistaprint, the RSVP cards are from prints made easy and printed a letter with transportation and accomodation details. I paid a total of $120 for 250 sets (invitations, rsvp, enveloppes -- I printed the letters myself). See pictures

        LOVE prints made easy....they did postcards and an STD letter for me super fast and cheap. I think yours look great!

        250 sets like that elsewhere would have cost you a small fortune...good for you. Keep that money in the bank!!!

          very nice. I hope to use my summer vacation to make mine but it is nice to see somewhere inexpensive (cheap sounds cheesy) to purchase invites from. THANKS

              They look great, I would of thought you spent a lot more than that. I know what you mean about spending a lot of money on something people only look at once. I'm starting to feel the same way.

                    Very pretty! I love that they are bi-lingual.
