Invitations!! PIP

Hi ladies!! I haven't been posting as much but i've been reading all your wonderful accomplishments/checks!! I hate the process of invitations..I can never seem to find something I like..until now!! I found an etsy seller who can do all my invitations for such a great price. My design will be a little different than this (my scroll will be bigger), but im super excited to see it all come together with my text and color.

    Wow those look awesome. Do you mind sharing the rough cost? My SIL is paying for the invitations for us and I don't want just a piece of paper I want something more like what you have so I am looking for a nice price before she changes her mind on buying them for us.

    TIA!

    Since im getting married in September it will be almost impossible for me to have peonies as well..but a girl can dream right? I told my florist that I didn't care if he had to go to China to get them..I want peonies!!!

    We have 102 guests and we need about 55 invites but im ordering 60 invites. Its going to cost us $300 dollars for them (includes:pocketfold, invitation, 4 inserts, belly band, custom logo, outer envelope and assembly)..unless I DIY them..they would have been even more by other graphic designers i've talked to (about $600).

    WOW that is awesome I wish I could cut our guest list because that is going to cost me a ton with the 130 invites we are going to need. Geesh I might not send an invite to immediate family or to the people in the bridal party lol that would be bold but it would save me a ton of money!

    Omg that is a lot of invitations! How many guests are you having? You aren't sending them to everyone right? Just one per household?

    We are sending out one per household but I have a ton of family that is not coming but  I have to send them an invite according to my parents. I told them it is not necessary if they are not coming and my mom is like they are still going to send something so you have to send them an invite. I thought I would just send something from Vistaprint if I have to do it but I don't want some of the family members that are coming to show them the real invite and then they will be pissed that they got a wacker version.

    HOT MESS I know

    Wow! That sucks..yea my grandmother tried to suck me in to sending out extra invites to people SHE said will not come. I told her I don't want to send invites to people who may randomly decide to come and it also looks like im just trying to get a gift out of them, which is not what I wanna do. She quickly dropped it so I have MY guest list..not my grandmothers!

    Nice invites...

    Also, @shesheduke, I agree with Ty, definitely order your pockets from Cards and Pockets.  I ordered my paper and pocket items from them, but I will be doing my own invites....they work really fast.  Order samples before placing a huge order.
