so me and fi picked up the box invites at michaels almost a year ago. they were on sale for $25 a box so we went for it. after thinking of all the leg work we would need to do to get them printed and jazzed up to where i loved them it wasnt worth it. secretly i was hoping he would say well just buy new ones and he said the magic words! so i went on the hunt for cheap, but gorgeous invites. we are at the 7 week mark and really need to get them out soon. so i got on the job looking for them to be already printed but all we had to do was address it! here are the old invites, pretty but not for us anymore!
so after getting ready to dig up someone to do the invites for a deal, i checked out PW vendor reviews and saw costco! so i put in the name on my google and searched for wedding invitations on their site. 25% off invites it said, even better. i found this gorgeous invite that includes the envelopes, and can also purchase the response card separately with the envelopes. they even print the return address for you! i cant wait to get these in the mail. now all we have to do is stuff and address the label. i can handle that easily!! stay tuned to see the actual invites! we have to wait a week before we get them :(
Invites have been completed and in the mail!! We did brown damask wrap around labels which I love. We downloaded a free template from The Fussy Designer! google it! She has them in several colors! Then we bought full size label sheets and printed them on our printer. Then we used a CRICUT trimmer to cut and score them! Not hard, but time consuming!! Invites from COSTCO! The quality is really nice and I was very impressed and cant stop looking at them. Here is some pics to lust over, ok not lust but you get my drift!
Yes the invite is to our President and First Lady! If you cant read it and want to send them one, PM me and I will get you the address!! I hope they come :)
So of course I had to take on an additional project by sending out rehearsal dinner invites! I got PW alex to do create these invites and took them to my kinkos and had printed. Very pleased! I didnt wanna order through the etsy seller which wouldve cost more and they charge $50 just to buy the file from them! Bride on a budget, hello!! So glad for PW!
Here is a picture from the site. Ill try to take pics on my camera so you can see the true size. I did the simple 5 x 7 and just did clear labels in Reisling font for the envelopes.
