The invitations are beautiful! We did have to assemble them but that was okay, we were willing to do that because of the good pricing we received. My only complaint was that we were hoping that when you placed the additional cards in the pocket that the header would show eg. Accommodations, Reception & RSVP. They didn't not sure if they were suppose to show or not. And the envelopes had a sandy feel to them, we think it was because of the ink..... But overall very happy with our order and the invitations are very elegant looking. Also had some questions when ordering called customer service and they were very helpful and friendly. All responses were quick and so was delivery.
Love the invitation.

The invitations looked so pretty and got a lot of great compliment on it. It's elegant. I will say their customer service is amazing. They went far and beyound my expectations. Very grateful for their great work. I asked them to number the response cards and they did it. It was very helpful that they took that much into details and for giving me no hassle with the final product that I received. Big thanks to customer service specialist, Penelope for making sure all that I asked for on top of having to add to the order after already placing my initial order online. Love Invitations By Dawn and how they took great attention to details. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone that's looking for a great, classy, exquisite type invitation for their wedding.

I am extremely happy with my invitations. I looked at hundreds of them online and finally narrowed it down to these. They are very elegant and classy, yet have a touch of vintage. Exactly what I was going for. The invitations are great quality and the slight shimmer gives them a little something extra. I was disappointed that over half of my invitations arrived with dried turquoise ink on the bottom left hand corner. I called Invitations by Dawn right away and Customer Service ordered and sent me new invitations in less than a week, free of charge, without any hassle. Very pleased with the customer service. I did pay for the proofs, but the proofs did not include a proof of the custom envelopes. So, if you do order printing on your envelopes, make sure everything is exactly as you want it before you order. Mine came with the wrong ink color, so I had to pay for new envelopes. Overall, very happy with my purchase and very excited to send these out!

We loved the look of these invitations as they described my daughter's wedding perfectly--pearls and lace! However we did have a few problems with our order. 1st the pocket folders were out of stock but we weren't informed of this until a few days after we placed the order which delayed us getting them for about a week and a half. No big deal except we were cutting it close with the calligrapher as it was and they wouldn't send the envelopes in advance. The accommodations cards were printed slightly off center. Some of them were way off but luckily we had extra. Many of the envelopes had a faint printing of the return address on the front. Didn't catch this until we got them back from the calligrapher so it was too late. We had to send them out as is.We wanted to seal the flap of the pocket folders yet they do not offer belly bands only stickers which are just ok. We had to order paper from another source and make our own. They don't provide enough glue dots to put the invitations together. There is a lace laser cut on 2 corners so that may be the reason but when I put one together with only 2 corners glued down, everyone that saw them tried to lift the invitation up at the corners that weren't secured. I had to go and buy additional glue dots to put these together. Customer service was very prompt in returning calls and answering questions. We were shorted 10 pocket folders and they were very prompt in sending them out. I am sure they would have resolved any of the issues noted above but we were short on time. Just wish we didn't have any of these issues
Even more beautiful in person

The Pearls and Lace Gold Shimmer invitations are even more beautiful in person. We are still getting compliments on how elegant and beautiful they are. The weight of the pearls and lace invitation, RSVP card, reception card and the gold shimmer pocket was PERFECT and it was just the right amount of paper thickness. The customer service at Invitations by Dawn was AMAZING and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. The price was great and the discount was even better. One of the downsides is that the invitations came unattached to the gold shimmer pocket so I had to spend an afternoon assembling them with my fiance. (Fortunately they did include the sticky dots that I needed for assembly.) This was not a big deal but just a minor annoyance. The other potential downside was this invitation did not have an inner envelope which at first was a bummer but then I realized that not having an inner envelope saved us extra work. The last small downside was that the outer envelop only came in white. I did not see an option for other envelop styles. I would have preferred it to come in Ivory to match the invitations better. Overall great experience and VERY happy with my invitations. Thanks invitations by dawn! :)
Love my Pearls and Lace

Beautiful and Elegant Invitations!

We purchased these invitations for our wedding that took place in October 2014. The invitations were absolutely beautiful. They were very elegant and we got numerous compliments from our guests about how beautiful they were. They were a great product for the price! I would highly recommend purchasing these invitations if you're looking for a simple but elegant invitation. The service was great and the products were delivered when expected. No complaints whatsoever.
So Many Compliments

The photos really cant do these invitations justice. The quality and detail are amazing. My only complaint is that the invites shouldn't be listed as "pearls and lace". The "pearl" accents are just raised dots in the paper.
Georgie from PA wrote on April 10, 2014:
I really liked these invitations from the start! The paper quality is really pretty with that bit of shimmer. The raised ink really adds to the quality. The pocket envelopes are sturdy but plain. It is a perfect canvas to tie in some personalized wedding colors or themes. I am going to wrap a light purple cord on each one and seal with a wax seal. There was a misprint on every one of the invitations. One of the letters was smudged. I called customer service and they asked for proof. After I sent a picture of the defect, I was contacted again within 15 minutes and Invitations By Dawn sent a new batch right away. I would recommend ordering invitations early just in case events like this do occur, but everyone was so easy to work with and understanding.
elegant invitations but poor service

Overall the invitations look very classy and elegany, the cardstock and pocket paper were of good quality. The envelopes were of thin quality, did not seal and the font was wrong. Assembly was easy however they did not provide enough glue dots so I had to go out and buy more. It would have been nice for them to offer free email previews as invitation are expensive as they are it would have been nice to get complimentary piece of mind. My item was backordered (this was not mentioned at time of order), therefore there was a delay with shipment. The amount of duty and fees associated with the product to ship to Canada was a large amount, that had I known I probably wouldn't have gone through with the order. I tried to contact customer service with my issues and never heard back.

Hands down - the best invites!

Hands down, IBD is the best place for wedding invitations. You just cannot beat the price and quality of the invites. The ones I ordered were perfect. Elegant, classy, detailed, and assembly was super easy. We have had a lot of compliments already and people think we spent a lot more than we did with IBD. Could not be happier with the purchase and I highly recommend these Pearl & Lace invitations. When I ordered, they ended up with the invitations out of stock. I immediately got a call from IBD to make sure I was ok with the revised schedule. I also called before placing the order to clarify some questions. IBD was very professional and I felt like they cared about my order.
Absolutely perfect :)
Tyne from FL wrote on March 20, 2014:
I ordered about 4 different samples and thought I wanted a different one because it looked elegant but it was double the price! I kept looking and came across these. They are beautiful.I got the black envelopes. Perfect feel for how my wedding will be. Great product for the money. If your concerned about paper quality just get the upgrade. It doesn't change the price that much and honestly I don't remember if I did or not. I probably did the next step up in the ordering options. Either way, very satisfied !! Came well packaged. Minimal assembly required. Very easy.
Beautiful and good quality!!

We loved our invitations!! They were great quality and exactly what I was hoping for! I was feeling iffy at first about ordering invites without seeing them until I found these. They are beautiful!!!! For anyone looking to get an estimate of postage, it cost us $1.19 for each due to the non-machinable charge at the post office. This is pretty typical from what I've found for wedding invites. Delivery was very fast and when I spoke with someone regarding postage, they helped as much as they could.
