    Postage stamps ran me $62 for Invites and RSVP cards. Thank yous were even more…

    Those little suckers certainly add up! For my save-the-dates, invites and response cards – I paid around $139.50. My wedding invites ended up costing .65 each and the save-the-dates and response cards were .45 each. Le sigh!

    Factor in thank you cards, rehearsal dinner invites and bridal shower invites (I bought the stamps because I didn’t want my sister to eat that cost)…I’m up over $200 at this point.

    Cost about $66 – Each invitation cost .65 + an additonal charge of .20 because I had a clip on the invites that made then non-machinable (they all got to their destination in perfect shape). That does not include the $25 for the stamps for the RSVP envelopes.

    No stick shock, just assumed it was part of the deal. Tried to keep the whole invite cost low, used VistaPrint, didn’t get fancy.  Total cost of the invites and all enclosures about $400.

    We specifically chose a size that fit into a regular business-sized envelope, with no inserts except directions.  RSVPs were emailed or called in.  Postage was about $20 for 40 invites (60 people).  We did it for environmental and financial reasons, and it was a casual-ish wedding anyway.

    Including Save the Dates (post card rate), Invites (.85 cents a pop!), RSVP cards (post card rate), and estimating Thank You Cards (.45 cents) we will spend around $120.

    For Save the Dates, invititations, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower invites and thank yous…. Well over $200! Keeping the United States Postal Service operating.

    Each of mine cost $2 each within the US because I put a little pearl embellishment on them that made them too thick to go at the letter rate, so they had to go at the parcel rate.

    Additionally, I made the invites here in Australia and then put them in a box for my mom to mail to everyone in the US. Shipping that box to her cost almost $50, adding over a dollar more to the cost of each invitation. I would have saved about 40 cents per invite had I just mailed them from Australia. Felt really stupid about that…

    When I make my thank you cards, I’ll be sure to keep them nice and skinny and I’ll just mail them straight from Australia and pay the international postage.

    So far, I’ve spent about $180 on the invitation postage, but it will be well over $200 once I send out thank you cards, too.
