Of course, I'll probably end up making my own with some card stock and a printer...

    Those invitations are nice, but I agree with you it is much more affordable to print your own. We used invitation kits from Michaels (40% off, of course) and printed ours out, but in retrospect cardstock would have been just fine too. Another benefit to making your own is that you can personalize it anyway you want.

    Congrats on the engagement, we were married a year ago, so the trauma of planning a wedding is still fresh in my mind, lol. If you need/want suggestions or help, just ask!

    I found some vellum for $16.99 for 100 sheets at
    http://www.paperandmore.com/clear_vellum_paper_29_acid_free_... . I found some card stock for $9.98 for 250 sheets at Staples.

    The vellum comes in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets, so I was thinking cutting them in half to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 sheets, and doing the same thing to card stock, printing a background on the card stock and the invitiation on the vellum, punching holes in them and tying them together with ribbon. Then, for the "save the date" cards, do the same thing with the leftovers.

    Mom said we will probably send about 250 invitations. So, two boxes of vellum at $16.99 each plus $3.99 shipping = $37.97, or $.19 a sheet. One box of card stock at $9.98, or $.04 a sheet (!). Plus ribbon. So, invitations for < $.25!

    Now, I need to find some inexpensive, good looking envelopes.

    Ordered two boxes of vellum, and a printer (I didn't have one before, and we wanted to get one for printing / scanning / copying / faxing, so I figured this was as good a time to get one as any). Will wait to get the paper from Staples until the vellum comes in so I can make sure it looks good together...
