Invitations (PIP & poll)

Okay, so this week has left me scrambling for invitations. I've gotten a lot of great recommendations from a lot of people lol, but nothing has really grabbed me.

So I check my email this morning and David's Bridal has sent a code for 15% invitation orders of $225 or more, with free shipping. Whatever, cool. I'm just so sick of the whole thing, I'm ready to order anything just to get it over with.

I found three on the site that I like. None of them are anything special, but they'd be in our colors and they're about what I was expecting to spend, plus a couple of discounts. Because I'm not in love with any of them, it's hard to choose. Asked mom and sister and they split the vote, lol.

So, here they are and I'm asking y'all just to have some more input:

1.


2.

  • I like two. One is a little long for me.

    I really like the long skinny one - as long as it's not too much black for you (thinking of your wedding colors - #3 is more consistent with only 'black accents')

    ETA:  They're all more than acceptable - if they're different prices, go for the cheapest.  And make sure postage for #1 wouldn't be more b/c of shape.

  • I ordered samples from David's bridal, and one of them was your choice #2.  I liked this one pretty well when I got it (although the colors did not work for mine).

  • Well, I think you should love your invite. I think they kind of set the tone for your wedding, its the first thing people see about your wedding! I picked the first one, i like the bow more than the second one and i like how its long.

  • I liked 2 and 3 both are nice... did you check Rexcraft.com?   I found mine there and I really loved them, they are also super easy to work with customer service wise.

  • If you're ready to be done with it, #2 looks very nice. I'm sure there are other invitation sites with similar discounts if you decide you want to find something you love!

    I think it works better when the invite is a slightly different theme than the wedding itself (i.e. wedding is mostly champagne and white w/a little black, so make the invites the other way around).  Personally, I think #3 is kinda meh.  The other two make more of an impact.

  • Have you checked any local print companies?  I was actually shocked to find that they're prices were better and the quality etc was better and they did exactly what I wanted!! 
    I like all 3 but #2 is my favorite.

  • Thanks for the input, I'm playing with the personalization now. #3 isn't even pulling up any script fonts to use, so I don't know WTF is going on with that one. I think I'm leaning towards #2 now; the more I tweak them, it's coming out ahead of #1.

    If I held out for invitations I love, I'd go broke or they'd never get sent. I got screwed out of the ones I loved, so now it's whatever I don't hate. lol

  • im partial to the skinny invite too! (mostly because mine are skinny too! haha) I got mine from alaunbydesign.com and they are EXTREMELY affordable and they came out great! just another option if you dont "love" these invites! i really like a lot of their designs! (although i do think these are very pretty also! love your color scheme!)
  • Just an FYI - Exclusivelyweddings.com is having a sale this week... You may want to check it out too. I vote #2 on here :) GL
