I was stationed next to The Desktop Diva for the show and really enjoyed chatting with the owner LaDonna. She has some really great ideas for Brides on a budget that don't want to just get a pack from Michaels and make their own invites. I am reposting from her Blog that you can find here.
Happy Planning Ladies (and gentleman too)!
The first thing every bride tells me during their consultation is that they want a very nice invitation but they only have a small budget for their wedding stationery. Just because the budget for your wedding is small that doesn't mean that you have to short yourself on a quality invitation. Your invitation is the introduction of your wedding to your guest no matter how intimate it may be in size. The Seal and Send as well as the Sep and Send Invitations, have been our biggest sellers this year and our brides rave about their quality. Not quite sure what they are? Let me explain.
Seal and Send
|Shimmering Lights Seal and Send Invitation|
Seal and send invitations make the invitation process simple and affordable. All of the essentials are in one convenient invitation design, including ceremony wording, reception details and a response postcard. No envelopes are necessary, which means you simply fold, seal and send! The best part is we offer seal and send wedding invitations in several paper choices with professional printing. In my opinion this style is not appropriate for a church ceremony, but for a more casual venue such as a private residence or restaurant.

Sep and Send

Sep and Send invitations are an excellent option if you're searching for an affordable invitation with a more traditional feel. The tiny perforated edge design allows the manufacturers to print all three pieces of your invitation ensemble on one sheet, which means huge savings for you. These all-in-one cards include the invitation, response card and reception card as well as all the necessary envelopes. These invitations are available in so many styles offered on several high quality papers with professional printing. To dress them up, you could add a coordinating pocket fold.

These are just a few of the many invitation choices we offer to our brides. If you are interested in these or any other designs, please contact us for your complimentary consultation.
