And finally ordered the envelopes for the invitations (and a few other items). It hurt me quite a bit to do so because envelopes are expensive! Well, the envelopes I wanted were expensive.
See, I wanted ivory inner envelopes (easy peasy) with navy outer envelopes (not so easy). Since my pocketfolds are 5" x 7", I needed A7 inner envelopes and A8 or A9 outer envelopes. I searched and searched and searched.
I was going to buy the ivory inner envelopes and the RSVP (A2) envelopes off Amazon.com. And I found the navy colored envelopes for a fairly reasonable price on www.envelopemall.com. However, when it came to shipping, it was slightly outrageous. One box of envelopes was going to cost almost $15 to ship! That's almost what I'm paying for the envelopes!
Change of plan. If I order more boxes of envelopes at the same time, the shipping only goes up a buck or two. So, I ordered the navy outer envelopes, the ivory inner envelopes, the RSVP envelopes, the thank you card envelopes, and the program envelopes all at the same time. The shipping still only ended up being just over $15.
Here's what I ordered:
|Stardream "Euro Flap" 5-3/4 x 8-3/4" (A9) Envelope 100 Pack - Outer Envelopes|
|Carnival 5-1/4 x 7-1/4", (A7) Envelope 100 Pack - Inner Envelopes & Thank You Card Envelopes|
|Carnival 4-3/8 x 5-3/4", (A2) Envelope 100 Pack - RSVP Envelopes|
|Carnival 4-1/8 x 9-1/2", (No 10 Sq. Flap) Envelope 100 Pack - Program Envelopes|
And, with that, I feel slightly nauseous about the amount spent on all things paper for this wedding. Ugh. At least I should be done with the invitations by this time next week. With fingers crossed that is. Hopefully the envelopes won't take long to arrive! Then I can get them out of my house and not have to think about how much they cost! ;)
