I think I found my invitations!!

My mom found this invite on Etsy, and I love it! It is the invite with the orange flourish on ivory cardstock with a pink background. I will have the orange flourish be lighter to match the tangerine color, and have a chocolate background instead of pink! Let me know what y'all think! http://tinyurl.com/n73ovj

    I really like those!  I think the flourishes (is that the plural form?) on the sides are much more interesting and detailed than a lot of the ones you see.  These will look great in your colors!

    pretty! but i'm impressed you're spending more than $1k on invites....$155 for 50 is steep to me!

    I'm not spending 1k. I only need 150 invites. I am spending about 500 in invites.

    i just remembered you mentioned something about a 400+ guest list! they're really pretty....but if you wanted to DIY, you could probably do it for less than $3 each....but i know sometimes saving money isn't as important as just getting it done!

    I did think about DIY, but how would I get the flourish design? I could have the invites printed at a local printing shop I suppose. The $5 per set is awesome I think. For $5 I get the invite, envelope seal, the RSVP card, and a map card/Thank You card. Postage for sending the invite sets to me is also included in the $5. Could I make all that for cheaper than $5?

    i think you could. they sell flourishes on i-stock photo, and sometimes you can find paintshop brushes for free.but i spend $400 on shoes, and $65 on invites.

    I do have a 400+ guest list, but I only need 150 invitations. I have a lot of families on the list with 4-6 people average per family I would guess. It seems lopsided to me, but I counted three times! I guess I just have a weird guest list. Should the STD match the invite, or is it ok if they don't have the same design on them? This is the STD I am liking at the moment. http://tinyurl.com/n7724w

    your save the dates can be anything. and some people don't do them at all. you can use them as a preview of sorts, of the vibe of your wedding...which is what we did. but you can also have something totally different.

    lol!I don't think your STDs have to match your invites.  Just make them something you love.
