My vote is yes, that is too expensive.  BUT, if you love it, and it is in your budget, then that is your call! I wouldn’t pay $30 an invitation though.

Holy canoli! The invites on her site are very nice but imo, not worth $1800! I guarantee you could open an alchemy request on Etsy and find someone to make exactly what you are looking for, for a fraction of the cost.

Yes, I do think thats too expensive.. shop around, maybe visit some printers near your house… I’m sure you can find it for cheaper.

Even though it’s all your wedding stationary, that is really pricey.  Her work looks beautiful, but most of it is going to end up in the trash

Yes, the invites are beautiful.  I got a quote from there, too!  But it’s WAY too much for an invitation.  You can find similar invites on etsy for $10-$12 each!!!  Save money where you can so you have extra for all those expenses that just sorta pop up!

They are definitely really beautiful and I can see why they cost that much. I personally think $1800 is too much to spend for invitations, but if you love them & can afford them, they would definitely be memorable. I also agree with other posters that you may be able to find them cheaper on etsy. Would love to see a pic of the final design you pick!

I think it is alot to spend.  Keep in mind that people will throw these away.

@Luxuryshoegal88: I love Etsy. I try to use it whenever I can. I’d much rather give my money to an individual than a corporation.
