Wedding Wednesday - Invitations

There are so many options these days for invitations to weddings.  I've seen it all as I'm sure you have too!  Some people pick designs that suit their personality, some choose traditional.  I bet yall can guess the route I took!
 
Our stationery escapade began at Salutations in south Charlotte.  They are FANTASTIC to work with.  Highly recommend. 
 
When our sweet 'weekend of' wedding planner saw that line item in my budget, she said whoa that is high!  She suggested I contact Reaves Engraving in Laurinburg, North Carolina.  First she had samples sent to me.  Then I received an invite from my friend Fran who had used Reaves and I was starting to think it was all meant to be.  And it was.  They were so easy to work with and an even better part - they do calligraphy for inner and outer envelopes for $1 each.  Try to find someone that cheap - dare ya!  And the invites - HALF as much as the Crane ones from Salutations.  They look exactly the same to me!
 
Sooooo, we ordered our invitations last week!  It's similar to this but I can't give away all of the details!

So tell me what yall did for your stationery!  I love how everyone chooses what suits their personality!

Love them! We used Blush Paperie and I loved them! They did digital calligraphy on our envelopes for about the same price and I loved it. We had real calligraphy done on our menu cards but that didn't matter enough to me on the envelopes to spend the extra expense!

In fact, mine looked a lot like the sample you show!

I went non-traditional and used wedding paper divas.
Your invites look identical to my cousin's who is getting married next week.

So classic. Love it!

Ours were from an Etsy shop. I was nervous not being able to see the paper in person before ordering, but ended up very happy!
