The quote I got from an etsy seller was about $600.  But, like you, I was hoping to stay under $500.  It’s tough with such a large guest list, though!!

It depends on how many invitations you want to get for that price! It also depends on what kind of feeling you want your invitations to have… which depends on the kind of wedding ceremony/reception you are having 🙂

Tell us more about the kind of wedding you want we’ll be able to help more.

How many invites do you need? We haven’t started looking for invites yet because we are terrified about how much it’s going to cost. We are looking to invite about 250 or so people, so we are in need of about 200 invites. I’m definitely interested to see how much other people have spent and what I should expect because we definitely need to start looking!

I got mine off etsy and paid around $220ish for 50 invitations and rsvp cards. I then paid another $48 in shipping to get them from the US to Australia. Its hard to find cheap ones, and when you have lots of guests it all adds up!

I designed and printed mine at home, so the total cost was about 60 bucks. (60 invites)

Can you DIY it a bit to save some money?

We went through Invitations by Ajalon, a letterpress studio. They are having a special until the end of April where you can get 100 invitations + RSVP postcards for $439 – LETTERPRESS. It’s a really great deal! Anything over 100 is $35 per 25 invites + RSVPs. I highly recommend them.

We used http://www.theamericanwedding.com and were very impressed with the quality.  They have some very affordable options.  $500 is totally doable!

Look at Stationery Boutique on Etsy. I’ve been chatting with her about our invitations and she’s given us a great price for printing ours (I designed them myself), about $3 each. If we buy our envelopes through her it goes up to $3.90, but still reasonable I think!

I don’t mean to spam you in any way, but I had this same problem so I decided to make my own and then start selling them on etsy. I can print my customers 200 cards with envelopes for $150. If my clients are looking to go for something even more budget friendly, I send them to postcards.com =)

 

Here’s my link, too, just to spark your DIY imagination!

I have read mixed reviews about these people but they seem cheap and have a lot of variety which is why I’m considering using them.

Here’s the link…

I did about 100 invites for about $150 or so, plus $100 for stamps.  

That included:

  • Outer envelope bought at Office Depot, printed at home with 2 ounce ($0.61 stamp) 
  • Inner envelope (gold shimmer from Michaels part of a card set) hand written
  • Invitation (printed on card stock at local printer and backed on gold shimmer)
  • Reception card (printed on card stock at local printer and backed on gold shimmer)
  • Response card (printed on card stock at local printer and backed on gold shimmer)
  • Response card envelope, bought at office depot, printed at home with 1 ounce stamp
  • Small map for out of town guests printed at local printer on cardstock. 

It really turned out to be pretty cheap doing it this way.
