Everything is either too frilly and formal, or not formal enough.
And expensive.
And often ugly.
me: yeah
everything is either blah blah plain traditional, or else cutesy urban outfitter
i mean, i CAN find ones i like
Derek: Exactly
me: but they're $5 apiece.

I don't know if this is actually a cheaper option, but check your local copy places. There are several around here that you can design your own and the cost depends on how many design elements, type of paper, etc. Hope you find something you like!

That's a good idea! Liz, my sister-in-law-to-be (I have GOT to find a shorter way of saying that) and I are talking about visiting a Paper Source next time we're together, too. I keep thinking I'd rather not take on such a big project, but I simply can't find a design set that speaks to me yet.

These may fit into the cutesy Urban Outfitter category, but I have to offer just in case. I found these http://www.target.com/Invitation-Kit-Blue-Brown/dp/B0010O1WQ6/sr=1-1/qid=1237446174/ref=sr_1_1/185-3903511-4205612?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=0&index=target&rh=k%3Ainvitation%20kit&page=1 on sale at Target for $6. I bought two boxes because I have a shopping problem and they were $6. I was figuring I would just have to have a million dinner parties, but then I saw this post. The color in the picture is way off. If you scroll down on the page the colors are more like the item in the "Guests who bought this item also bought" section. If you want them they are yours. If not, I will have a million dinner parties :).
