I am not sure how many beach wedding people are on here right now (I thought I remember a few) - but I was wondering which invitations you are using.

I see so many that I like, but they are out of my budget. Ideally, I''d like to keep the invitations/envelopes/response cards under $100 for 100, but that''s not looking realistic. I''ve tried to find some kits at Michaels and Office Max but they dont have any beachy themes. Any ideas?

I would love to see any that you recommend, even if they are out of my budget. Its hard to tell quality online sometimes.

If anyone has ''keep me within budget'' ideas for me, please let me know...Thanks! :)

It depends on how casual you want the wedding to be. If the invitations look too "beachy", people may show up in shorts. There are some really pretty ones on the Paper Diva site.

I can''t offer any suggestions, but I think you are really pushing it with only $100 for that many invites? Hope something in budget comes your way though, you never know. Good luck!

I think you can do it. I found tons at or around your budget. For example:


Number 1

Number 2

Number 3

Number 4

They may not be super-high quality, but they are beachy, they are in your price range, and they are attractive.

Good luck!

Oops, I am bad at linking. Well, number 1 and number 4 work, I think. You get the idea, I hope. :)

I know how you feel, DMBFiredancer - Invites are crazy expensive.

It might not be much help but my cousin got invites to match her website on WeddingChannel.com. It was a beachy theme with a Palm Tree etc. Very cute and very nice. Not sure if that would be something you are interested in but thought I would mention it just in case.

Here are the ones we went with. They were more than your budget of $100, which I think will be difficult to find.

I think I have more saved on my computer that I liked. I''ll post them for you for inspiration.

These were my all-time favourites but when I asked for a quote, I was told $35 per invite!


I think, though, they might not be that difficult to replicate for a DIY.

These would be very easy to replicate! Choose some patterned paper you like as a background, layer on the white with your printing, then use a rubber stamp for the turtle.

I''m doing something similar for mine, with paper that looks like ocean waves in the background and a starfish stamp. I''ll post photos when mine are done. I don''t expect them to cost more than $0.50 each, but I get a lot of my paper crafting supplies at cost.
