helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

I had planned on my G2B designing our invitations, tracking down the correct papers and envelopes, (kind of like Jessica did!) and printing them out ourselves. I had all of these great ideas and had been researching what I wanted them to look like. And then one Sunday afternoon I was roaming the aisles of Michael's and I ran into the Brides Invites. There was one style that were the perfect colors, and less than a dollar per invite. They were on sale (yay!), I sent a picture of them to G2B and got the ok, and these bad boys were in my buggy so fast! I just could not help myself. How could you blame me for buying box invitations?

They are wonderful, they include response cards and envelopes, and extra cards for directions or what have you. I really love the ribbon detail, I think it makes them look sooo much more expensive than they really cost. They also come with a link to go to for easy fonts and printing instructions. Each box contains 30 invites, so I went ahead and bought 3 just because I knew we would need a smidge more than 60. They were $24.99 per box. With tax they all came to $81.16. Jackpot!

93.5% I am all for DIY (and these still a little DIY since we will print them ourselves), but every once in awhile I'm all about simplifying things.

Only bummer, you can not use coupons on sale merchandise, which I totally understand but I never head to Michael's without a coupon or two!

    I LOVE this set! These are my favorite colors, and I bought them for the rehearsal dinner invites. 🙂 I bought the wedding/reception invites at M's, too. They were the ivory ones with the pearl and ribbon in the middle. LOVELY! And, super easy to print & assemble. (I didn't know these were on sale when I bought them b/c they never freaking label anything at my local store. So, when I got to the register and they rang up $24.99, I was confused and handed my coupon over. The cashier totally let me use it, even though she wasn't supposed to and I got the box for $16.45 with tax and all. SCORE!)
