I finally decided to join Weddingbee! Now that my fiance has proposed to me, I am going to need all the help I need to plan a wedding! We haven’t set a date yet, but we’re thinking December of this year or early next year! I definitely want a winter wedding.
Where did you guys buy your wedding invitations and how much did they cost???

I got a graphic designer friend to design ours (cost me $40) and then printed them with VistaPrint – I got 50 for $30 including postage.

We hired a local graphic designer for our invites. She only charged us $285 for 60 invites, which includes all of the assembling and addressing. She is even taking them to the post office to have them stamped and mailed. Postage will obviously be extra. I was floored at how reasonably priced she is, especially considering our invites have a lot going on design wise.

Walmartstationary.com 80 invites for like 90 bucks. My RSVP will be less than 70 bucks and i got a promo for free address labels.
Walmartstationary.com is a really affordable site as well as vistaprint.com they guarantee your invites. If you don’t like them they will redo them at no cost.
vistaprint is very popular on the WB. They also have good sales almost all the time.I’ve even added stuff to my cart and just left it there without purchasing and they will send special promos with like add additional 15% off if you purchase What’s in your cart.

I got a groupon for zazzle.com for my invitations. I ended up spending 40 for the groupon (that was for $100+ of invites) and upgraded to linen quality for about 10 dollars. I highly recommend zazzle.com!

we had someone local make ours. Day invitations (pocket-fold with triple layer inside, ribbon and diamanté brooch, personal RSVP/menu choice card for each guest plus SAE, information card, and envelope) cost £8 ($13) each, and evening invitations (simpler design with double layer rather than triple and one RSVP card (which folded to create an ‘envelope’), plus information card and outer envelope) cost £5 ($8) each.
Would have saved a bundle DIYing them but we ran out of time; I DIYed all other stationery though (save the dates, table names, place/menu cards, table plan, and thank you cards) and saved several hundred that way.

We got 55 invites, enclosure cards, belly bands and envelope liners.. I’m in love with them! That came with guest addressing too which is soooooo necessary!

1790 for 120 letterpressed suites. Throwing in the additional 300 to have them addressed by a calligrapher. Facepalm.

$750 for a pocket invite suite of 125 invites. Included the invtation, RSVP card with envelope and return address printing, reception/guest info card, securing sticker and also guest address printing with return address printing on the main envelope. it does depend on your budget and amount of invites of what youll spend. Ive seen people get huge bargains but then others who spent 2k on their invites. I feel like we fell right in the middle with what we received and how many we purchased (based on my social circle and those whove already bought invites)

- Wedding: May 2015 - Walnut Hill Bed & Breakfast
I got a DIY set from Gartner Studios (They sell them at Michael’s and JoAnn’s).
They happened to be on sale for $10/box when I first got engaged so I ordered 2 boxes thinking that’d be all i needed. That was $30 (including shipping). After we got our guest list finalized I realized that 2 boxes pretty much left me with no leftovers and nothing to practice with, so I used a 50% off coupon at Michaels to get another box for $20. I used a new printer with fresh ink that I happened to already have from a couple years ago and never opened/setup. I designed the wording myself in photoshop but they also include Word templates.
My total before postage was $50 for 90 invitations. I only need about 65, though. (I wish I had just ordered 3 boxes from the beginning, i could have saved $10!)

We spent $240 for 60 invitations from Papersnaps. I loved their all-in-one invitations (less risk of people “misplacing” RSVP cards, and Fiance said he loved them.

- Wedding: May 2015 - Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception / Courtyard Marriott Legacy Ballroom
We haven’t finished them yet, but I bought a template online – WeddingsbyJanieV on Etsy! – and bought the pocket invite kit & belly bands from Cards and Pockets. The total for those was about $440 for 200 invitations. We still need to buy the cardstock to print the actual invitation and the ink – we’re printing the invitations ourselves on my Mom’s really nice Canon printer. I estimate we’ll be spending about $100 for those. So the invitations will come to around $3.00 each.
