(Closed) How much did you spend on your invites…

  • poll: How much did you spend on your invites?

    I spent too much-wish I had been more economical now that it's over.

    I didn't spend enough-wish I had gotten fancier ones.

    I'm comfortable with what I spent and they were just right!

    We ordered 25 invitations, plus customized stamps (60-something cents, for extra postage on them) and RSVP cards and spent a total, I think, of between $110 – $120. Totally worked for us. They were beautiful, our family loved them and the suited us and our personalities very well.

    I purchased mine from Michael’s with a 50% off coupon. I was thrilled because it was the exact look I was going for and couldn’t find anything similar online or anywhere.

    i loved my invites, many people said they were the nicest invitest they have ever seen. They weren’t cheap (~$600/100), but I don’t regret spending as much as I did, they were gorgeous.

    i got my diy invites on clearance and then added some of my own embellishments.  it included everything, rsvp’s, envelopes, etc.  they turned out to be around $25 for 25 invites before postage. 

    i saw them online for $8/each so i loved spending only $1/each on them.

    We shopped around a lot. Originally, all the ones I liked were around 600-800 and we weren’t so comforable with that. Eventually we found exactly what we wanted and spent around 400. I loved them!

    About $50 for 100 invites. Clearance kits from Target.  I didnt want to spend much on them, and they look good enough for what they cost.

    I ordered mine from VistaPrint and had a 30% off coupon.  Only needed 30 paper invites, so it cost about $20 plus shipping.  Laughing

    With postage probably around $50-$60 dollars. We bought a DIY set, an art director friend of ours designed them, and we had them printed. We loved the result…they were very us.

    We bought the 100-pack of the simple black and white invitations at Michael’s plus some response cards to match. I think with postage included it came out to about $1.50 per invitation. I love pretty invitations, but it was the easiest part of the wedding to skimp on.

    @ilovenycmissie:  $40 including postage is impressive: are you having a small wedding? Just my standard postage is costing me $44!

    But I’m going very basic with my invitations. I think beautiful paper invitations are awesome, just not for me. I’m getting mine printed on Vistaprint and a friend is designing them, so with postage they’ll be less than $100 total for 100 invitations (yay coupons & free shipping!)
