The exclusive wedding invitations by Formal-Invitations.com feature luxurious layers adorned with keepsake embellishments, designed for the bride who wants high style at an affordable price. We are a family-owned company dedicated to providing beautiful, earth-friendly, cheap wedding invitations that only look expensive. Our invitations are only available directly from us at http://www.formal-invitations.com, providing you the lowest possible price. Formal-Invitations.com was founded in 1991 by Melissa Nyssen, as an alternative to high priced invitations and cheap, flimsy, kits that we found difficult to setup and print. Our mission is to provide high quality, unique, earth-friendly and incredibly easy diy wedding invitations, starting at 70¢ each plus affordable custom printed wedding invitations.

The high-end look of our invitations is achieved by using a heavyweight background card layered with a printable overlay then adorned with a unique embellishment, to stand out from the typical flat announcement. The layered invitations were designed to be made easily using our free wedding invitation templates, just change the wording, print and cut …no tiny sheets to print on! Custom printing is also available for your convenience.

Select from over 250 unique wedding invitations kits, or mix and match invitation components from over 50 premium background cards and 300 unique embellishments to create your own distinctive design. Wedding invitation kits include the heavyweight background card, printable overlay (shipped uncut in standard easy-to-print 8.5x11 sheets), embellishment and envelope. An additional outer envelope, envelope liner, tissue overlay, seals, corresponding cards and custom printing are additional options offered.

We use only high quality, 100% post-consumer recycled papers for the invitation envelopes, white overlays, reply cards, reply envelopes and cover stock. Formal-Invitations.com is an approved business by Green America and has been featured in Bride's 75 Best Wedding Web Sites, Martha Stewart Weddings, InStyle Weddings, Bridal Guide, Bridal Bargains, and on the Style Channel.

I recently bought paper to make my own invitations from their DIY section. They had a huge selection and exactly what I wanted. Teal paper with ribbon and butterflies. The order came quickly and they got back to me quickly on information about my order.

Yes, the value is good for the cost, but I would never order from this site again. Due to two different issues, both of which were the fault of the vendor, our invites had to be sent out 2 weeks late. The first issue was that a clip art picture was advertised as being in a book which we then ordered, only to discover that it was not in the book. I had to contact the company, they did not get back to me for three days, and only agreed to refund my money after I mentioned it- no apology was given, although they did send the clipart via email. The second issue was when we realized that they sent only 100 envelopes when we had ordered 125 invitations! Finally, I do realize the cost is very low and you get what you pay for, but the quality of the invitations is different than what they make it seem on the website. Tis is probably obvious, as everyone has a product to sell and they want to make it look as attractive as possible, but if you are on the fence about using this vendor because you ae concerned about the final quality, I would spend the extra money and look elsewhere for invites.

The service was beyond exceptional; I had a short period of time to get my invitations out, I told her what I wanted and she delivered exactly. I am most appreciative for all the assistance you offered. The layered invitations were beautiful, they were just as described and previewed on the site. I would definitely recommend Formal-Invitations.com to anyone who needed the service.

I was looking for diy invitations that could be made on recycled paper but were inexpensive and easy to assemble. I found this site and placed an order for the materials I wanted to work with. After ordering, I realized I had ordered the same color paper in different weights and was worried that I would mix them up, however they sorted and labeled everything in the box very neatly. I was impressed.

I found the diy tutorials on their website very helpful. I also took advantage of their clearance items and some of the paper tools they provide (like the hole punch--how convenient to just have it all in the box ready to go). I highly recommend this company if you want cheap diy invites that look great!

I had recieved an email confirming that I had placed and order with this company. It just stated that it would be shipped by some company, but did not say when it would be shipped or when to expect it or even gave me a tracking number. I sent an email to the company to see where my package was 10 days after I had ordered it, basically to make sure it have even been shipped. It took over a week to respond, and then only when I sent another email. My first order had been "lost" and then the second order arrived within 2 days. I really like the invitaions but the cost was way too much since I have to put them all together and print them myself. The cord that we got to go with our invitations was not nearly enough though we were told it was enough and then some. We were instructed to measure a certain length but at that length it would not even go around the invitations as described let alone make the design. I will not order again from this company.

Formal-Invitations.com is a great and inexpensive website for Do-It-Yourself invitations. They provided a wide variety of invitations they could either completely make or you could do it yourself. Great prices and good quality.

At first we thought that we were getting a great value due to their low cost and flexibility of products, but when we received our order the color of one of the products we ordered was incorrect (somewhat our fault, but the website showed a green brad rather than the orange ones we recieved.) We brought this to the company's attention and after an extended delay they shipped us replacements at no cost, however 25 fewer brads than what we had originally ordered; even though they included the original/updated packaging slip with the correct number circled. Good value, but a pain in the butt. Good thing we ordered months ahead.

This company is very DIY, but a dream for budget brides. They have many invitations for under $1/apiece, but the catch is that you have to put them together yourself. There is also a wide selection of recycled cotton cards and invitations that are mixed with leaves or flower petals for any brides planning a green or eco-conscious wedding. Part of my order was missing, but they were very nice about fixing it.

It was awesome to use them for making really good-looking invitations that were super cheap. It took longer than expected to get the text looking good, even though they give you a template to make it easier. my partner and I spent one good day putting the invitations together and that was that. they shipped fast, all super easy.

two other couples, friends of ours, also used them and had great experiences. one of the couples got charged wrong, and they just notified the company and it was quickly corrected, and that couple came out feeling really positive about the company too. big thumbs up.

I couldn't believe how these looked, based on the price. Looked like $5 invitations but for under $1. Yeah I had to put them together, spend a little extra time but it was worth it. Quick shipping and easy to use website.

I was satisfied with the product I received once I had received it. I had some issue with ordering samples (which they charge for). Be warned they only pack samples once a week and it will take 2 weeks to get your samples even if you expedite shipping.

I also had issues with their expedited shipping. I paid $70 for 2nd day air (which is the fastest they offer). Because I placed the order on Thursday night, the order wasn't placed until Friday. They don't ship on Saturday. So the order shipped on Monday and arrived Tuesday. This doesn't feel like 2nd day air to me. Beyond that, the two boxes got separated and I ended up having to pick them up because I had tried to expedite the process.

Bottom line, If you are looking for good paper (lots of recycled and environmentally friendly) these guys are good. Just make sure to leave plenty of time and don't bother with the express shipping.

I ordered some materials for my diy wedding invitations. They arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, one of the items sent to me was wrong but I contacted them by e-mail and received a reply that same day. The correct item was sent the next business day.

I love Formal Invitations. I wanted something unique and I couldn't find anything until I stumbled across this site. They have a very good and affordable selection of invitations for DIYers or assembled. The shipment was fast and all questions were answered promptly. I did however decide to use another invitation service as I was just overwhelmed when I tried to make my own. I still love the idea though!!

We got gorgeous invitations for a great price! With an online company, you don't get as much guidance and contact, but we liked the flexibility of ordering them at an hour, rather than having to take off work to meet and choose designs. They will also send you a sample if you want to see the invitation design first. They came quickly and without error, too!
