Question for anyone who recently got married or have helped the wedding. My best friend just got engaged and now I need to start planning the wedding with her. Does anyone know of any good place to get the wedding and bridal shower invitations? As an unmarried person, I have no clue where to start this from. By the way, she's the first one to get married from our circle of friends.. :)

You'll find lots of great information online. Try checking out www.theknot.com first. Good Luck! :)
How about doing the invitations yourself using a computer? I think places like Kinkos can sell you the nice staionary and you can come up with the wordings and such. Hell if I could, I would do evite when I get marry.
Side note, went to a wedding this past weekend just outside of Baton Rouge, La. The ceremony from the time the people started walking down the isle to the time we left our seats for the reception for 15 MINS!!! Damn, thats a wedding I like. They used a justice of the peace. Spent the rest of the time drinking and dancing!
Dear Teak, no....... you do not make wedding invitations on the computer.
When you get married, do not even bring this idea up with your future wife, you will make her cry.
15 minute wedding, wow, I don't know what to say about that.
Let's just hope they got it on video tape.
SK8R, how about EVITE.com? Just kidding. Actually I've had some friends make their own invitations and they came out rather nice. The stationary they used were the exact same kind as the ones you pay hundreds at a printing shop. I guess kassiabi is looking for something fancy like having someone hand write each invitation.
I've gotten 3 invitations so far. Actually make that 2 cause I told my buddy to save the money and not to send me one. Just email the info. I heard the average cost of a wedding is $20,000. The average divorce cost $20,000. OUCH! And I don't think the wedding cost includes the cost of the rings. I hope I have my wedding at Vegas!
To kassiabi, check the library for past issues of Washingtonian. I'm sure they have done an issue on DC weddings and might have suggestions on places to get invitations done. Try a local print shop or some working out of their home.

I have done a few wedding invites and newsletter etc.. I am a multimedia developer (web, training, flash, etc) but my background is in graphics design. I used a printer in Springfield NOT Kinkos. It looked first rate. I normally do not do private jobs as I am a contractor so I do large corporate stuff and government large scale graphics like for booths.
You can save money and have someone do it in a layout program like I did but go with a professional printer and they can hook you up with the right kind of paper to boot.
wow, I'm stuuuupid then. I did not know you could make invitations that way.
Back in the olden days when I got married we had "engraved invitations" in fancy thick paper. They were not hand written.
I have done hand written invitations for someone though, long long time ago in caligraphy.
It is a lot of work. You know, no one really cares though. Shoot! print those sucker out then.
