I’m still alive!
I know, it has been quite a while, and I do apologize for the long absence. With the wedding crunching ever closer, and work getting busier, time just flew by… Back in November, I wrote about the design process, and now that our invitations have been sent out, I wanted to share how my invitations turned out on this #weddingwednesday.
In my original post, I mentioned going with a local print house to try and save some money. I looked into quite a few options, including Staples and a local printing company, but found the best deal through Vistaprint.ca. They often have coupon codes and special promotions, so if you time it right, printing through Vistaprint.ca can save you a lot of money. They currently have a coupon for 40% off postcards using code BIZSAVE. I can say that I am 100% satisfied with the results, and would recommend!
In order to facilitate the delivery of the bakery cards, I made envelopes out of craft paper. Figuring out the correct dimensions and the most efficient way to make them took a lot of trial and error, but once I had the prototype down, it was quite easy. I am thinking of writing another DIY post for the envelopes, so let me know if you are interested in learning more!
For all my curious #budgetbrides, here is a budget breakdown of our invitation suite:
Postcard printing: <$50 on 100 invitations
Postage: <$10 (We also hand-delivered most of our invitations to friends and family at different events)
Total invitation spend: <$70
