The wedding invitations that I’m considering ordering are $7 each. Is this an insane amount? For months I’ve looked for something less expensive, but keep coming back to these. They’re flat printed but on intricate die-cut paper so that’s why they’re pricey.

Our save the dates, invitations, information cards, and programs all cost $150. For 75 of each. So for the “suite”, which included an envelope, we paid $2 each…but the invitations themselves were cheaper, since that $2 includes so much stuff.

That seems insane! I had a friend make all of mine and the grand total was $50. People just end up throwing them away, no matter how nice they are. I would cut costs on invitations and spend it elsewhere!

That seems a little high to me, but it also depends on how many people you are inviting. My FI designed ours and we printed them on Vista print with a Groupon. For 150 invites I think we paid around $35. This didn’t include the RSVP envelopes but I found those for a very resonable price as well.

These were mine, they cost about $2 each (envelopes, inserts, etc)
I’m making these for my friend’s wedding (this is a mock up), they’re costing about $2 each

For 100 invites with response cards and 100 save the dates we spent like $115 total. We will be doing our own programs and escort cards so that will essentially be whatever we spend on paper.

@JLR1982: Mine are $5.80 per invitation. So mine are quite pricey. But I am only inviting 10 people, so I will spend a little more to have what I want. If I was having 100 guests I would probably go with something less expensive. Honestly, I have not priced invitations, so I cannot tell you what is a reasonable price.

Mine were 4.50 each including all the envelopes, but not postage. That includes the invite, RSVP card and an additional insert and the invite envelopes and RSVP envelopes. Our return address is printed on the invite envelope and the RSVP envelope in the same font as the invites. I did not DIY anything ha. I’m really happy with the way they turned out and the designer has been A-MAZING (esp since I sort of ordered stuff seperately because I wanted to keep adding things ha.) GO ETSY!

I think that sounds reasonable. Ours were around $12/piece I believe.

@MrsWBS: Yeah, they will end up closer to $10 each with extras and postage.

Ours were over $7, not included postage and other stuff. We went with classic, traditional invitations of heavy cardstock with handpainted gilt edges. I thought they were simple but elegant and really set the tone for our formal wedding. I think if you’re looking for quality paper, $7 is totally fair.

My STDs were about $2 each plus postage. My invitations were about $6 each plus postage. You can definitely shop around for something less than $7 each, but I found that quality really declines fast.
If you care more about obtaining a certain look and/or quality, then you probably did fine. If you care more about getting a bargain, then you probably could have done better.

Mine were close to $10 each, but only because I ordered the minimum – 25. They went down to something like $2 or $3 if you ordered 100 or 200.

I made mine and they were around $3 each. They’re pocketfold style
