I bought my at michael's over 3 weeks so I could use a 40% off coupon then. They were nice but they were black & ivory where my wedding colors were brown & ivory. But I liked them and I figured, most if not all of my guests would end up throwing them away after reading them, so why spend a fortune on them. Husband wanted to do a thank you photo & do custom cards but once I saw the prices to do that, I veto that idea as I was the budget police for the wedding.
Since I didn't have to wait for custom cards, I got started on my cards the week after the wedding when we returned from our honeymoon & managed to get all the thank you cards out within 2 weeks after the wedding.
