I want this soooo bad


http://www.etsy.com/listing/47309956/accordion-fold-wedding-invitation-all-in?ref=cat2_gallery_8

We were going to get free invites from where we are getting our tuxes so am not sure if I can fit these into my budget instead but I LOVE THESE!  I figure that since only the invites are free and reception and response cards are extra and colored ink is extra, I might spend about $200 on "Free" invites.  For about $350 more I can get everything and I would absolutely love it and not have to pick from their "Free" books.

  • Those look great. What a great find. If you can fit it into your budget,  I would do it.

  • Wow those are neat!!  Also you mentioned the free invites from the tux place - what tux place are you renting from?  I've only ever heard of that from one other person so I am curious!  :D

  • Oh my god I'm in love with those too!  They're gorgeous!
  • I'd give $20 off the rental to the grooms, spend less money on their groomsmen gifts and get these invites. Those are really cool!!
  • I argee with the pp. Get the $20 off for each tux plus the free groom one.

  • I love those.  They are above my invite budget, but I may have to rethink my budget.  I love that she'll do a custom map for $50.  The idea of messing with a map is making me kind of sad.
  • Very cute invitations!!

  • Wow those are super cute! I agree with pp, get the $20 off the GM tux's and go with these invites if you can make it fit in the budget.

  • I may find other places to cut the budget as well.  I just vowed to my co-worker that I would give up eating out for lunch.  I go out maybe twice a week and could save 20-30 bucks a week just on lunch.

    Our GM (there are 11 of them) would appreciate a $20 discount.  They are all taking a destination Bach party (the east coast) so after those costs, I'm sure they could use extra savings.  My BM are all getting a $20 discount just cuz I bought my dress at David's so that's only fair then.

    go with the $20 off each tux - if you have 14 tuxes you'll save $280 which will almost pay for the invitations you want from Etsy

    if you don't get the $20 discount b/c the other three tuxes are discount you'll still save $220

    either way it is a better value than the free invites.  
    for example; lets say you are spending $1000 on these tuxes and $20 off each tux means you would spend $720 on tuxes
    1000-280=720 + 350 (invites) = 1070

    the "free" invites with upgrades you need for response cards would cost you
    1000+200 = 1200
    you are actually saving money if you buy the invites somewhere else
  • Well the GM are paying for their own tuxes so it wouldn't save me any more money to go with the discount but I would choose that one because it would be nice for the GM to not have to pay so much. 

    I am gonna check with a local printer here in town too to see if we can design something similar so I can maybe have all of my stationary for around the same price.  Here's to hoping :)
