Try annsbridalbargains.com
I got my invites there… 75 for only $33.00

I did get a basic design, but they have a lot to choose from, and their prices are fair.

Good luck!

I went to wal-mart and they have invitaiton kits. They were only $15 for a box of 40 so I just bought a couple of those and they already have the border and stuff on them then you just put a cd in your computer and personile with what ever templete you choose. It included all envelopes and RSVP cards.

Hanson Ellis on line hansonellis.com I got really nice invitations, “Message in a bottle” for a beach wedding… really cool.
also vistaprints.com is good for designing and ordering very economical invitations and announcements of all types. Good luck!

My mom got her wedding invitations at staples and put them together herself (did all the typing and stuff)…

You can also get them at craft stores.

My cousins did something that I thought was really cute for their wedding invitations!
They had a professional photographer take their picture and they selected a boarder that said:
“6/21/08
Save the date”
and it was a magnent for the refridgerator (they bought a strip of magnent and did it themselves)

and they also included a somewhat formal weddint invatation in also. It was a more casual wedding.

Office Depot has some very nice, elegant kits that you personalize yourself on the computer. Nice quality paper, very pretty.

mygatsby.com has some nice stuff, they let you customize every detail of your invitation just like you were making them yourself, but you still get the professional look with their printing. The prices are not cheap but they are reasonable.

believe it or not, I found some really beautiful invites at Target!! Go to target.com or http://www.target.com/mystationary. You can download your own fonts to make them unique and add a band of pretty ribbon. Rexcraft.com has color and photo-lined envelopes, which add a nice touch. Good luck! If you are looking for pretty designs to add to an invite or insert card search for “dingbats”. Dingbats arent just stupid people, they are the technical name for the little images that are printed on invitations. You can find swirlys, leaves, hearts, whatever!

I bought the kit at Michael’s, but you can buy them at Wal-Mart. I had written my own words.
