I ordered these invitations for my upcoming destination wedding and they are beautiful! My only "complaint" is that the water ripples show more yellow/green (ink bleed) than expected, and I had hoped for more of a total blue look of the water like in the photo. However this was minor and the invitations still look great. The shimmer paper is perfect to make the water "sparkle" and make the invitation very elegant. I'm very happy with the final product! My original order didn't reflect the correct shipping amount based upon the promotion code I used, but when I called Customer Service, they were very friendly and quickly corrected my order. Shipping was very fast, received in about a week. The web site was super easy to use to achieve the exact product I wanted. I highly recommend Invitations by Dawn and am very pleased with the service overall!

We love our Sea of Love invitations! The pearl shimmer paper looks great with the water in the background. I expected about 3-4 weeks for delivery but our order shipped within 5 days and arrived in under 2 weeks. Would definitely recommend Invitations by Dawn!
Great Invitations-need more communicate

It was not clear from your website that the reception cards were a card that had a flap. I ordered 2 reception cards and ordered maps to beput on the BACK of the cards. The cards came and I couldn't use them because the maps were put on the back of the flap. It looked silly.I re-ordered them and had to pay for them again and then you put the wrong map on the back of the wrong card. I am glad I caught thisin the proof. Then when you put it on the right card, part of one of the towns was cut off. I did work with your supervisor who was able to straighten it all out for me eventually and he was very helpful, but I felt that I shouldn't have to pay for the reception cards twice. I enjoyed working with all your staff- Joan was very helpful and kind. But I wish you had calledme when you first saw that you had put the maps on the back of the flap instead of on the back of the card which I had asked for. The invitations are beautiful, and finally, the maps looked great and they went out in time. I would recommend you to a friend- but I would tell them to have conversations with you frequently as to what it will actually look like.

I was very pleased with my order. It was a perfect choice for my destination wedding invitations. The only somewhat negative thing I could say about it was that the photo while on the paper is obviously not crisp and clean looking like an actual photo would be like, but I was expecting that and therefore I am not disappointed at all. It was good value, not expensive and allowed me to get my ideal invitation without going over budget. It was easy to personalize online and it was processed and shipped to me all within a week.

Perfect for Island Weddings

I used this invitation for my March 2013 destination wedding in Puerto Rico and people fell in love. I've received nothing but compliments. I recommend using teal and white font colors as I first saw in a magazine but the scenery really captured the island and made people excited about going. You have to be very careful with grammar because there is no editing but otherwise it's great!!! I was nervous about the final product because I didn't have time to order a sample but I wasn't disappointed.

The ONLY negative thing I have to say is the internet site was slightly tricky to navigate. It was probably just me but I saved my invitation twice only to have it disappear because I had "saved" it in the wrong area. Otherwise, would highly recommend this company for its product!! Very, very good!!! Also, the product arrived very quickly! Will definitely use again!!
Great Experience, Good Value

For the price and speed of delivery, these invitations were perfect for our post-wedding celebration. We're getting married on the beach, so I wanted simple invitations that allowed me to fully customize the text. While the beach photo isn't super high-resolution, the colors are bright, the paper is a nice weight, and I didn't pay offset printing prices.

NICE INVITES HIT WITH ALL THE GUESTS

THE INVITATIONS WERE BEAUTIFUL, CUSTOMER SERVICE GREAT AND SPEED OF FILLING ORDER WAS FANTASTIC. MY ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THE RESPONSE CARDS WERE NOT JUST A SINGLE FLAT CARD THEY REQUIRED FOLDING AND THAT WAS NOT INDICATED IN THE DESCRIPTION SO ALL RESPONSE CARDS HAD TO BE CAREFULLY FOLDED SO THE EDGES COULD BE EVEN TIME CONSUMING. I WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT HAVING TO GO THROUGH THAT . WHEN I CALLED TO COMPLAIN I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO AND I SHOULD JUST GET A PAPER CUTTER AND CUT THEM INSTEAD OF FOLDING THEM . NOT THE TYPE OF ANSWER I WANTED TO HEAR. DESCRIPTION NEEDS TO BE UPDATED TO LET CUSTOMER KNOW CARDS NEED TO BE FOLDED.
