Wedding Invitations

Yesterday, I hit the jackpot when it comes to invitations. Since we're not doing a traditional wedding, we didn't want to spend too much on invitations or announcements. But at the same time, I want to let people know the name of the chapel and the online address so they can watch the ceremony online. Having invitations printed from an online boutique or even a discount shop means spending at least $60 on 50 invitations. Since we need at least 60, basically I have to order 100,. which was going to mean spending well over $100. Yes, I know some brides spend $500 or more on their invitations, but again, we're not working with a traditional wedding or a traditional wedding budget here.

So yesterday, I went shopping. The plan was to head to Michael's craft store and see if I could find some print your own invitations for a decent price. Before I went that way, however, I stopped by this relatively new discount store that opened near us called Ollie's. I noticed last time I was there that they had packs of 100 print your own, but they were kind of cheesy, with linked wedding bands and thin cards. But I thought, why not check it out? And now I am so happy that I did.

I got two boxes of very pretty invitations that have a vellum overlay and a ribbon accent on top of a black and white floral design for only $4.99 each. Yes, seriously! Only $5 for these invitations. It took me some time to get the printing to fit on the page exactly the way I want, and I spent a little extra buying some red accents to make them look more christmasy, but I am so excited I was able to save so much money. It was truly a happy find.

These invitations are beautiful! I like the black floral design.
