What Invitations are your ideal?

So now that you got the venue, you have to start looking at other things to do with the wedding. One of the things that is quite appearant is wedding invitations because we get them all the time. What makes a good wedding invitations? My parents like the chinese ones with the gold letters, red paper, and double happiness sign. But we aren't doing a chinese wedding. So then another choice is the american style invitations. But we want to put a little chinese influence for all the guests. So what do you do?

I would like to have a wedding invitations on off white paper maybe with double happiness character in light red so it looks superimposed with indented lettering and some semi see through paper. Maybe add a bow or wrap around for more substance. All I know, our invitations are going to be the best, I just got to figure out how to do that.

hey there:) congrats again! just wanted to give you a suggestion as you head down this path...are you planning to have DIY invites? ordering them? some combo in between? i highly recommend this woman (she did ours!) but i can send you more links via email if you're interested... we ordered invites from her, but then did the assembly ourselves. overall, the price was GREAT and awesome quality. http://www.freshinvitationstudio.com/

hi there! i just want to say that i enjoy reading your blog. we chose to order our invites online from a lady that custom made it. i gave her my ideas and she sent me tons of different proofs and her prices were pretty awesome. we paid less than $4.00 per set with 4 different inserts. her site is bellabykarah.com

An idea I was thinking about previously was to buy a double happiness wedding paper punch from ebay $8 as a design and using the pocketfold from the following website (range $0.90 - $3) http://www.custom-programs.com/envelopments-gallery.htm. They have various examples and tips on how much it would cost to assemble. You can also hire them to put the invitations together. The Double Happiness Wedding example is $3.90 DIY
