We choice this invitation because of its clean, traditional and simple style for our wedding. We were very pleased with the final invitation. It was printed exactly how we designed it and the ink was raised, which we were not sure it would be from just viewing it online. We got our proofs very quickly and the printing also was done very quickly. We did not pay extra for faster shipping, so the longest part of the process was waiting for the invitations to arrive. It only took a few days and we were able to track the package easily through UPS. We were just a little impatient because we wanted to see the invitations because we were excited about them. We were looking for a single panel, but it turned out, based on viewing the proof, that the card we selected actually folded in half and was blank inside with the print on the front. We were concerned about this at first and I called Ann’s Bridal Bargains to talk about it. The customer service rep was very friendly and helpful. She knew her product well. She explained that , for an additional small fee, they could cut the cards into a single panel, but that she suggested we not as the weight of the card would be reduced and not as nice. She said it was common to have the inside empty. We decided to keep the card as they printed it and it worked out. We just inserted the Rsvp card and envelop inside the wedding invitation. That way when it was received the recipient would pull everything out at once and not miss the Rsvp card. The ink, we chose blue, matched the lining of the inner envelop perfectly. We had the outer and inner envelopes pre-printed with our guest’s information. Ann’s excel sheet was easy to use and it turned out perfectly. I would have been so worried I would have messed up the envelopes if I had addressed them myself and the final printed envelopes looks so perfect and professional. We looked at many sites and it can be overwhelming. There are many sites out there, some with better quality papers, but all we looked at were so expensive. My best mad suggested we not waste extra money on the invitations and instead spend it on the actual wedding ceremony. His logic being that most people mark the date on their calendar and then toss the invitation anyways. I agreed with him and this helped in reducing our choices. Don’t get me wrong, the quality was perfect and I think the invitations turned out great! It certainly wasn’t as cheap as going to our local drug store or using an online invitation, but we didn’t break the bank either. If we had to do over, we would do everything the same way again, through Ann’s Bridal. I don’t plan on ever getting married again, so I don’t know when I will have to opportunity to use Ann’s Bridal again, but I certainly recommend them and if I ever need customized invitations or announcements for anything in the future they will be my first stop. Thank you team at Ann’s Bridal for making this part of our wedding planning so easy
