Invitations

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go to get inexpensive yet modern/elegant wedding invitations online or in the NY/NJ area?  I'm looking through parekhcards.com, weddingpaperdivas.com, indianweddingcard.com, and 3beespaperie.com.  Was wondering if you girls had any other suggestions.

Also, how far in advance did you send your invitations to the people in India (if any) and to those in the U.S.?

Thanks in advance! :)

    If its a destination wedding or with a lot of guests from out of town, at least 3 months in advance. The earlier the better.

    For other local guests two months in advance.

    The sites you listed all have beautiful ones.  However, the invitations coming from India are unusual sizes for the US post, so they can be really expensive to mail.  We ended up going with Mara-Mi after showing them the samples we got from India. They made ones up for us that were beautiful and not very expensive!!

    We sent out wedding invitations to India 6 months in advance. We emailed save the dates to the rest of our guests at the 6 month point too, and then mailed invitations 2.5 months before the event.

    Hope this helps!
