decisions, decisions

So, I've been scouring etsy for the past three weeks looking for a printable wedding invitation pdf that I really, really like, and I've found several. This one, however, is my favorite:


I can change the colors to match the dark navy, slate grey, and ivory theme I've got going on, which is awesome. What's not so awesome is the price...$75 for just the pdf file! What do you guys think? Is it worth it? Or should I just go with this one (for a lovely $25):


Thoughts?

Katie I think both are beautiful but I also think you should look at your budget and spend accordingly. If invites are important to you then spend more on them, but if not save that money and spend it somewhere else.
Thats what I think.

I like both of them! I agree with lyssa, but I think the first one is pretty cool. there are some I've found that are free files. would you be interested?

Jody Lynn said...

i'm still voting for the second one. ;) but free files from amanda? if you find one you like that would be awesome

Whatever you decide, make sure you won't regret it. Whether that would be regretting not getting the invitation you love or spending too much on your invitation.

Another idea would be to design your own that are similiar to the ones you love. BYU has Adobe Creative Suite 5 in computer labs on campus, and a simple text design like that wouldn't be to o hard to create.

Maybe I just don't know anything about wedding invitations, but couldn't you just make your own that look a lot like the one you like the most, but put your own little spin on it? It's not that hard to do with Adobe stuff, and they have those programs all over campus if you don't own them.

Also I own them and could help you out. But again, maybe I'm missing some key information.

It would definitely be easy to just make your favorite one. I would be happy to do it for you if you wanted! I've been itching for a design project, and you wouldn't have to pay anything. It'd be a win-win situation.

My vote is for the second one. But, if you really love the first one, either recreate it, or splurge a little. You only get married once! :-)

I bet I could find someone who would make you invitations in Adobe like the top one for 25 bucks, if you are interested. :)

i really like the first one! a little unique but not over the top! I vote you just make one in adobe.. or, if you don't want to do that, splurge! :) Only once, right?

Nathan said...

I think I could recreate the 1st one for $50

;-)

Sara's right though, a text invitation like that isn't too difficult to create using the software in the library or the lab I work in.

I was going to say, I love them both, and really adore the first one, but I'm sure you could make it yourself and save all that money. We did our invites ourself and it cost us nearly nothing. I'm sure you could do the same thing. If you do want them made, I know a few designers who will do it for a lot cheaper too. Let me know if you want some names.
