Like PP said it depends a lot on what you want done. We had our invitations made by a friend who owns the company so he sold us everything at cost and we did all the manual work. His invitations start at $10.

We spent $400 on 156 custom invitations, rsvp post cards & postage.  We didn’t have anything elaborate but we loved it.  I would suggest checking with small stationary stores in your area.  You may just find something you love at a great price.

Like all the others have said, invitation costs vary widely depending on what details you want.   You can definitely find stationers who will do beautiful work for extremely reasonable prices.  I’ve charged brides anywhere from $3 per set (for an invitation that was a custom printed design) to $10 per set (for invitations with a lot of handmade detail work).  Just find a stationer whose design and quality you like and chat with them about options.

Check out Wedding Paper Divas. I received amazing amazing service from this company (and I live in Canada!) and even though the invites aren’t necessarily “custom”, you can certainly customize any invitation template to suit your colours, style, etc.  I changed a lot on my template and they came out beautiful and unique to my wedding.  I paid around $450 for all of the pieces (including 110 Thank You cards).

Check out etsy. I love their designs and they have so many to choose from!

I made mine and spent $156 on 75 invites.They were fancy too.

Well, I designed & printed my own on card stock and envelopes in my cradating stash so they only cost $.88 (one stamp to mail them, another for the RSVP). If I had to buy the card stock, I’d still be looking under a dollar each. Hope that helps!

I guess it depends on what you mean by “custom invitations.” We are working with a local printer, using locally-sourced paper, and doing graphics that I drew by hand, based on the design that Fiance and I created for our wedding rings. I consider that pretty “custom,” yet we are keeping the basic invitation quite simple, using a single-color printing process, and they are coming out to less than $1 each. (That doesn’t include postage, but it does include the invite, insert, response card, and the envelope.)
