#30: Invitations: The Wishing and The Reality

How I would love to be able to invest more money into our invitations to really get the feeling and style of our wedding across to our guests. Unfortunately, budget is not allowing for this because the flowers and centerpieces are MUCH more than I was expecting so invitations are taking the hit.

Jujubee Designs at Etsy have these gorgeous invitation sets (I'd change the purple, though). Isn't this the right way to use an actual feather? I think, yes.


I've decided to not be one of those brides who goes into debt over a one day event and take the high road. I always knew the invitations weren't my highest priority anyway and you know what? I really am content with these WAL-MART (yes, Wal-Mart, I'm not ashamed!) invitations. I think they're simple and cute. They don't give an inclination towards the peacock theme, but I guess that'll be all the more surprise when our guests arrive at the reception.

Those will be just fine. You can always ad a little bling to your invites with some swarovski crystals scattered about in your wedding colors. You can order those in bulk from

Those are cute. They'll totally work. Because most of your guests will honestly throw them away eventually (no offense).. so spend the money on something they'll remember forever!

I think they will be great! Can't wait to see how they turn out and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Happy planning!

girl say it loud, say it proud...."I LOVE WALMART!" im not even going to lie about it. It rocks. I think your invited will be super cute, plus you could always add a peacock feather on there. <3
