We printed our own at home so it was less than $1 per invite.

Now, I know that isn’t for everybody, but I’ve heard of invites going up to $7+ per, so I don’t think $3.50 is outrageous. Does that include all of the extras like reply cards and multiple envelopes? If not, I’d be inclined to reconsider.

I would talk to your stationery vendor – sometimes they offer deeper discounts if you order the rest of your stationery through them (menus, programs, favor tags).

We’re paying $3/invite (including envelope, RSVP card, and reception card) thru an etsy seller.

My FI’s coworker’s fiancee is making ours for $3.50 an invite (includes pocketfold, response card, direction card and reception card) which we thought was an awesome price.  We were happy to stay under $400 on them since we are the type who throw away invites after the wedding and just figured others did the same too.

Your fiance is correct that most people do throw them out. It’s rare for anyone other than best friends and parents to save them. However, you can send whatever invites you want.

I am doing mine myself but it looks like I will still be paying money because parts of the invites need professional printing. I thought it would be less expensive when I started the task.Undecided
