I was determined to not spend a lot on invitations just because I personally don’t see the point in spending $1000 on paper. So I ordered ours from Mixbook. I waited until they sent out a 50% off promo and got 125 invitations with envelopes, response cards, and direction cards, for around $175. They look great, too!

We probably spent a good $700 on invitations.  We did however have about 75 invites, which is a bite more than average.  When you add in the standard invite and envelope and rsvp, plus stamps, plus an address stam, plus an event/accommadation card, plus a reception card.  It adds up quickly!

@crackktheskyy:  I ordered 25 invites and response cards…cost me $101 (including shipping and a 25% off coupon).

It’s more invites than I needed, but the next lowest option was for 10 and I needed more than that.

I splurged on them a bit since we’re having a very small wedding and I couldn’t resist.  I also still need to get some specific envelopes (instead of the ones that came with them)

@crackktheskyy:  I went through wildship studio.  She is a graphic designer out of michigan and had a lovely design for my mountain wedding.  She was willing to work within my budget.  I love aestehtics so craft store invites were not an option for me but neither was super expensive ones though I was considereing them for quite sometime.  She quoted me a bit more than I could do at first around $700 I believe for 75 invites, invite envelopes, rsvp cards and rsvp card envelopes. So we lowered the paper quality and changed the rsvp card to a post card and nixed the rsvp card envelope, and I got down to $400 for 75 sets, pretty good deal. I could justify it!

@crackktheskyy:  Mine are almost $2k for 125 invitations, double envelopes, liner, and reply cards. I wanted cheaper but couldn’t resist letterpress.

@crackktheskyy:  $12-15 per invitation, including menu selection and reply card and then $2 for postage (custom stamps). I am estimating $1530 for 90 invitations.

@FutureMrsBol:  I’ve never heard of Ann’s before, but I’ve found one that I like on their site. It’s SOOOOO affordable! Thanks so much for posting about this. I just can’t see spending more than $2-3 per invitation. I’m inviting 300 guests! I’m planning to spend a fortune on food. I sure as he’ll don’t want to spend a fortune on paper.

@crackktheskyy:  I got mine on vistaprint during a 50% off sale! I got 100 invites (w/ envelopes), 100 RSVP’s (w/ envelopes), 120 seal stickers with our names and dates, and 120 return address labels for the RSVP’s. It came to $120 (that includes taxes) and had free shipping.  I had my eye on some on Etsy that I thought I was going to get that were going to cost me $200 for invites and RSVPs (100 of each, with envelopes).  But when I saw this deal on VP I couldn’t pass it up! I think they are super cute and they are going to get tossed out anyways 🙂

Ours were somewhere like $650 for around 80 of them, plus a few extras with blank envelopes.  It would have been less than that, but we had the paper company actually address everything, which cost an extra $120.  I loved our invites and thought they were simple but elegant.  You can keep the cost down if you don’t have the paper company do the addressing, stick to only two or three colors, and don’t bother with letterpressed invites.  (Letterpressed are gorgeous, but they were crazy expensive–like $20 a piece!)

Mine are around 100 with a coupon. I am using an online site and the RSVP is postcard attached   I love the fold look.

We ordered ours from Minted, and paid just under $600 for 110 invitations, 110 RSVP cards/self-addressed envelopes, 110 accommodation cards, and 25 extra envelopes.
