So we are going to make our own invitations, but I have no idea where to get envelopes. Any suggestions?
(Our color theme is Tiffany Blue, Chocolate Brown and White)
We might do something like the following: http://www.flickr.com/photos/12152067@N08/1358474508/

Oh.. hehe... Cheesy

I didn't think I could either because I'm not a paper crafty person at all, but somehow I managed to for our wedding.

Sorry I don't have any great sources for paper for ya. Sad

If you have your heart set on all handmade, you can buy an envelope template, trace around it, do the folds, and bob's your uncle. (You can download a template too, like from here: http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2004/02/20/large_envelope_template.pdf  )   I have seen the heavy plastic envelope templates at Target, in their scrapping section, and from Paper Source.

But, if you are over the handmade part by the time you get to your envelopes, Envelope Mall has a wonderful selection of envelopes and colours, at really good prices. I would work backwards with your DIY'ing, if you go this route. Figure out envelope specs, then create your invites from there. Good luck! I absolutely love that Tiffany blue and brown together.  http://envelopemall.com/

If you were looking to buy, someone directed me to http://www.clearbags.com (don't be deceived by the site name, they do sell regular envelopes), and they seem to have pretty good prices, as far as I have looked around, anyway.

Thank you so much flowerofedo! I just quickly looked around and it looks great-then I realized it was an American site. Luckily they have a http://www.clearbags.ca/ that does shipping to Canada.
