I haven’t decided on which invitation I want to use for my wedding… I was thinking of pocket folds, but they seem so arts and crafts – 5th grade like…. UGH!! I’ve become so tedious about this.. Please help……
Please post your Invites and tell us the price per invo…

I went very cheap-o for invitations (http://www.einvite.com/).
Was like all-in $2 / invitation.

I had some custom made on Etsy and they were 4 dollars a piece for custom artwork, 5×7 card, RSVP card, and two envelopes. I ended up asking her to go ahead and do the enclosure card so it will all match. She said it will be $1/ea. So I”m looking at 5/ea!

I’m going to try to make my own for about 1.50 each. My budget is $150 and I’ll probably invite about 130 people (but some are couples)

I’m printing ours (from Jo Ann fabrics). They were less than $1.00 a piece!

Invitations were our lowest priority and we got a great set for 1.90 a guest from swoozies.com

We went with a custom desgin by an Etsy vendor spent about $5 per invitation which included bellyband, main insert, 2 inclosures, return address printed on envelope, rsvp postcard and a map….awesome huh!

Our invites were pretty low priority too, we just wanted something simple and were able to get a good discount through a family friend, it’s coming out to be less $1.50 per invite.

I figured people will most likely not save the invite, so I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I bought the Eyelet invitation suite by Martha Stewart and am adding colored cardstock behind it with a ribbon detail. With all the supplies and printing, they will be under $2/invite.

For those of you concerned by price per invite, you may want to check out this web site: http://www.paperlesspost.com/
The only problem with something like this is if grandma doesn’t have an email address, you may have to spread the info by word of mouth, or have a few printed for those who don’t have internet or email access.
Also, I agree with the other bee’s about ETSY. I am a graphic designer and most printing venues give at least a 10% discount if you come to them with the design already produced. So search for designers that are willing to work within your budget and look for printers that give discounts.

I promised myself that I would not spend a lot on invitations. After stalking every invitation website and falling in love with so many beautiful (expensive) styles I decided it’s just paper. I ended up finding some really cute pocket style ones at Michael’s that I can print myself. It’s only $40 for a pack of 30 and I spent $30 on a huge pack of ink for my printer. I added cute scrap booking pearls to tie in my vintage theme and bought an embosser online to emboss the return address onto the envelope which looks really upscale. its costing me about $2 an invite.

I’m using hello lucky. I ordered some invites off of etsy but the quality (and weight) of the paper really mattered to me and it was hard to find that from a lot of the vendors.
100 invites/response cards/seating cards were a little less than $500 with tax/shipping (I also used a discount offer they were running at the time!).
