    @Mata_Hari:  I would say  for everything budget $6-10 a set including, depending on how fancy youre going. I am DIY a lot to keep these costs down.

    I looked at an average design on Weddingpaperdivas. 100 invitations and envelopes costs $180.  Response cards = $110 I am assuming no enclosure cards, Save the dates. A separation invitation cardwould probably be the same as the invitation, so another $180. that equals $470 plus postage (assuming US, 46 cents each so times 300 (invite, response, other invite) = $138. So total = $608, so I guess my 6-10 figure per set is about right!!

    It depends on the quality you’re looking for, and what styles (pocketfolds are more expensive, as are ribbons and bows).  Better paper quality makes them more expensive.  So does lined envelopes.  So, it’s hard to give a guideline.  For 150 invitations, I spent over $500, not including postage.

    Definitely depends on what you’re wanting and whether or not you do them yourself.  If you want to order printed invites online I’d say bare minimum $100-$150 (think Vistaprint), but more likely $300-$500.  You could spend $500+ for nicer invites and even more for letterpress.

    I spent about $415 on 100 invites, rsvps, info cards, and direction cards.  Another $25 on envelopes.  Doesn’t include postage.
