I used Hallmark for my baby shower invitations and stork avenue for my Christening invitations. ($35 for custom printed and assembly at StorkAvenue.com) I think it all depends on your religion and if you want a traditional invitation or not (I had to go traditional). I'm not Catholic by my boyfriend is and we are having a Catholic ceremony so I've been researching like crazy, is there hair still on my head??? I actually found a Catholic etiquette website... According to yahoo posts it is customary to have a brunch afterwards with snacks and cake but I say it is up to you and your family's traditions.

We got our invitations from the Factory Card Outlet store. As for food, we decided to eat at a restaurant. There were quite a few people and we wanted everyone to be happy with the food. It was A LOT easier to plan that way.

I made my invitations on the walgreens website. The front was lots of pictures of my little one. We are have a luncheon afterwards of chicken, salads, pasta & cake. Of course it's what your budget can do.

You can go buy the ones at walmart that you print...They come out very nice. Food depends on what time you are having it. You can do just appetizers or a full meal. We did the full meal...Carne Asada, rice, bean, tortillas and salsa...Then cake afterwards. But most of our family and friends came from out of town.

We just had a cake and ordered pizza. We also had some chips and crackers for snacks. I just created the invitations myself using clip art and a picture of my son. They turned out really cute.

Invitations at any Hallmark Store. We just had sandwiches and cake and meatballs, and nacho dip. That sort of stuff.
