So, I am on the verge of ordering invitations. (Yay!) By my count, we will be sending out 93 invitations – not to 93 people, but 93 actual physical invitations, if that makes sense. Obviously, we’re going to want to have a few extras for mistakes, screwups, etc. (We are going to be addressing these puppies by hand.) How many, do you think? If you’ve sent out your invitations, how many extras did you end up needing or wanting?

I think 5 is good. Are you going to be sending any to famous ppl? Like the president or disney world? If so, get some more! We had made about 8 more and ended up using 4-5 of them because we forgot some invites in the guest list!

I have NO idea where I read this, but I remember reading from somewhere in the wedding web to order an extra 10% so in your case it would be 9. HTH!

I would order 7 more to make it an even hundred. You may want to give one to your photographer to take a picture of with your rings.

Can you just order extra envelopes? I ordered twenty extra envelopes, but if I have any of those left over I will be using them for letters or whatever.

and also, factor in that you might want to save a one for framing.

We had 65 invites to send out and I think I ended up ordering an extra ten. We added one extra to our guest list and I also posted one to my Darling Husband but we didn’t use the rest.

extra ten is good because don’t forget that you’ll also probably want one to keep for yourself for a keepsake…

We are sending out 85 invitations and I ordered 100. I’ve always read that you should order at least 15-20 extras incase of mistakes and so you have a few extras as keepsakes.

I would order atleast 10-15….
I made my own everything and in the end had enough material left over for 3 invites…
Ultimately after receiveing some “no’s” we wanted to add to our list of people that we originally couldn’t accomodate (FI and I are paying for everything)
I was only able to invite 3 b/c I didn’t have enough “b list” invites… we could accomodate 25.
(I didn’t really understand the whole b-list thing until just recently)
So, unless you’re tightly budgeted or really want less than you are inviting I would order the extra just in case
