What kind of invitations did you do? One double sided card style? Multiple cards? DIY or did you order? I am doing new invitations now that we postponed to next year and I am not using the exact same invitation but I cannot decide what I want to do!

I went with a vellum card as our invitation and a smaller vellum card used to let our guests know to rsvp via our wedding website. It was placed in a dusty blue ripped gatefold with a grey wax seal with our initials to close it up and a white cotton envelope with dusty blue writing
We ordered double sided invitations from Canva. We asked guests to RSVP and find more details on our website. I just used one of their templates and made a few edits to make it how I wanted it. There's an option to add plain envelopes as well.
Vistaprint has discounts and more options to personalize the invitation, but I liked the template on Canva more and didn't want to go through the hassle of uploading my design to vistaprint.
My fiance and I went to Michaels and bought their box set of invitations (Gartner Studios) There's 50 to a box and comes with Invitations, Reply Cards And Envelopes. All you do is your box set that you choose has a code and you use that on their website so it's identical to which template you chose. Then you just type what information you want on your invite including different fonts and colors and such. Then you just print them from home! It's actually pretty easy to use You can also save and change things as many times as you need. Since my fiance and I have had to postpone until next August, I'm glad we went this way and not having to pay extra for new invites.
I’ve used zazzle, and am using them again for the invitations. They will be one sided. They frequently have sales like 20-50% off and last time I checked they were still offering a change the date option at no charge. So they will reprint new invitations with the new date for free if the wedding reception gets postponed
My FH and I have been back and forth on design invitations and the first pass wasn't what we envisioned so we are working with our vendor. We are not that creative so we are definitely ordered ... COVID has us post-poning until next year so we are still going back and forth on the actual design but we have agreed on the look:
- one card with the basic information, one sided (venue, time, address etc.)
- details card of the actual location with directions
- RSVP card
We are having them put in a super cute way too - the main card will have all the information on one side with a pocket in the back and that's where the details and RSVP card will sit in.
Check out Polka Dot Paper Shop - all of their invitations are one of a kind and she is so creative!
We went with Vistaprint to save money, but a lot of their themes have the full set available (save the date, invite, enclosure, RSVP) so you can match everything up. They turned out really nice for us and we had no issues.
