Hi Everyone! I have been doing some research for my wedding invitations and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I've been thinking I might just go to Michaels Craft store and buy the do it yourself invitations. Does anyone know of any good companies that do invitations, or any good websites where you can design and print your own? Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

I used solo dia, the proprietors name is Marcia, she is based in burnaby . She designed
them specifically for us. We were really happy with the way they turned out.

Our invite was a photograph with us on it, created ourselves in a photo editting software.

I have recently received an invite from a friend & she used a kit. It looks super cute. Another friend used a pre-made kit for her engagement invites & embellished with a few stick on jewels. Super pretty! Will take a pic & upload.

If going w/Michaels, then get everyone you know on the lookout for Michaels coupons, they're 40% off towards one item & usually 1 per person. Go in w/your friends, each person has a coupon & one kit, saves you money.

Did that for a friend's wedding favour to save her costs. Did that with just about anything I needed for our wedding.

If looking for something different, check out (located in lower mainland)

Always have admired her work, really pretty, great variety & it's DIY with a twist. She creates the template and then you find the paper, print it out & assemble it. The template pkg includes files to create invites, rsvp cards, menu, program, table seat chart cards, table numbers, etc. Paper Poet in New West is a great place for paper. Unopened pkgs can be returned, the more you buy, the more you save.

Congratulations on your wedding! Invitations were the hardest part for us, as I have been a bit... well lets just say picky lol. After months of searching (If you haven't been to try them!) I finally decided to buy a kit and just do it myself. I bought my invites in packages of 25 from Walmart in Bellingham and it was the best money I've ever spent! I am so happy with them.

For $29.99 per box I got

- 25 pocket folders
- 25 invitation mats
- 25 sets of 3 enclosure cards
- 25 mailing envelopes
- 25 rsvp envelopes
- 25 ribbons to seal invite shut

They are super cute - and only cost me just under $300 including printing and mailing!

I printed them off at work - I work at the Office Depot in Surrey. If you decide to go the DIY route and need help with printing stop by and let me know!

Office Depot Newton - 7488 King George Hwy. (604) 543-7816. Just ask for the Copy and Print Centre!
