My fiance designed ours, we printed them on Vista print and the RSVP it actually going to be the end of the invitation that will be perforated and tear off.  The only thing I don’t have yet is the RSVP envelopes, but total we spent $50 on Vista print with a groupon for 150 invites.

$107 for 50 pocketfold invites (envelopes, inserts, postage, etc), but I was able to use the leftover paper and cardstock scraps to make my ceremony programs as well.  I designed, print, cut and assembled everything.

I ordered the VistaPrint Groupon and paid only $27 for 50 Save the Dates and 80 Invitations plus envelopes.  They turned out beautiful.  Cut down on response envelopes and postage to save money.

Just send basic single page invites and have people RSVP online or the old fashioned way, by phone.  You can create a free wedding website that can be used for RSVPs and to give the additional information pocketfold invites have.

I bought a customized template on Etsy and I was able to print mine at work, full color on nice cardstock for free! Its something to look into if you can.  Even if they make you cover paper, its a huge cost savings. and not to be a downer, but everyone but your mom is going to throw theirs away anyway!

@langloiswedding2013: I did DIY for the design as I couldn’t find anything that looked the way I wanted, but had them professionally printed and party assembled. The photos aren’t that great, but you can get an idea. Pocket fold from Cards & Pockets (excellent customer service and products, I really recommend them!):

The invitation:

Close up of the details on the insert (we did our RSVP via phone and our website):

We ordered 30 invitations and spent $52.2 on the prints and $46.3 on the paper (so the pocket fold, which is one of their high end products, and the lined envelopes). I also had to pay close to $35 (plus $25 in brokerage) just to get them shipped to Canada (sigh… huge source of irritation in my life).

Since you have a big wedding with lots of invites you should be able to get down the price due to the share amount of material you’re going to print.

I think it depends on where you order your invitations from and if you choose to use letterpress (uber expensive), thermography, or flat printing. I know for 100 pocketfold invitations with inserts with thermography, postage, and seals my FI and I spent about $500 (only because we got them when the place was having a sale).

I designed the invites and had them printed through Vistaprint using Groupons. For 80 invites, RSVP cards, and reception info cards, it was about $70. I also purchased different envelopes, thank you cards, and save the dates. I think my total cost with postage was $155?

@langloiswedding2013:  We did DIY flip-card style invitations and they cost us $97 for 150 of them.  We did RSVP online/email/phone and FI designed and printed them himself on really nice cardstock that was old inventory for free from his work.

Invites were not that important to us. Think about weddings you have been invited to, do you even remember what the invite looked like?? I don’t! I got a groupon deal for vistaprint, which have me $100 worth of product for $25, so total we ended up spending $100 for 100 invites, the envelopes, plus the reply cards and those envelopes.

I bought mine online at partycity.com, under $25 for a package of 25 invitations.  They came with the folders, invitations, reply cards, two insert cards, decorative crystals, ribbons, monogram stickers, and the reply card and mailing envelopes. I printed them myself on my colour laser printer, though inkjet would have worked fine. I’ve gotten lots of compliments from my guests at how nice they were.
