I just ordered mine tonight from peartreegreetings.com! It cost me $142 for 88 invites and 88 RSVP cards with envelopes and return address printing. You can get it for cheaper as I spent $27 of that on the return address printing. They are having a 20% off sale right now, so I got that as well! They have really unique stuff, i’d check them out!

Oh wow, some of these invitations costly. I only spent about $.42 (42 cents) per invitation. I purchased 75 for $31.79 with tax from Hobby Lobby. However they are DIY, so this does not include the price of printer ink.

We got our invites from Wedding Paper Divas. It was about $480 for 150 invites. They often have 15-20 % off coupons also!

We had ours printed at a small, local print shop.  They were about $4.50 each for the entire set, not including postage.

i did mine DIY. Including postage, cardstock, glue, envelopes, and printing, it came to about $5 per invite. I believe we spent about $275 on the whole. More than i wanted to spend but they’re ultra fancy and unbelievably gorgeous. I got my envelopes from LCI paper, my cardstock from Micheals, and had the invite itself printed from Catprint.com

@futuremrsk18:  .59 a piece, plus HST (13%).  Shipping was free (I ordered our thank you cards, return address labels, and shower thank you cards/return address labels) all in one order. 

We have a one page invitation.  No RSVP cards (online only, or by phone.)  We used Vista Print.  They were supposed to come later this week, but they showed up last Monday.  🙂  Super early.  I am really happy with them.  

Vista print had a sale, then I had a coupon code to further reduce the price.  I do know they have a 50% off sale going on right now.  I got the email today.  We don’t need anything at the moment, so I turfed it without looking at the details.

I am DIYing ours, with printing and cropping done by cards and pockets. I’m sure there are cheaper options, but…I don’t really care enough to price shop, ha! Anyway, with all envelopes/embellishments/etc, each of our invites in around $3. Which is kinda insane. Plus postage. But I love them. Our suite has an inner and outer envelope, satin belly band, a reception card in its own envelope, plus an RSVP card/envelope and map card. oh, and we’re paying a calligrapher so I guess our invitations are closer to $5/each. Dang. Thats a lot. Whatever. I couldn’t find anything predesigned I liked our I would have gone the minted/wedding paper divas route. I found a few Cheree Berry styles I liked but they were way over budget at a minimum of $12/set, so I used those designs as inspiration and did it myself!

I spent about $350 to sent 41 invites (that included postage) and looking back, I definitely could have done it for cheaper. I ordered my invitations from an Etsy seller but I absolutely hated the color of the outer envelope so I went to Paper Source and spent about $25 on 60 A7 envelopes and used those instead.

I’d suggest going there if you have one near you and picking out envelopes. You’ll need an A7 for the outer envelope and an A2 for the RSVP envelope. If that runs you about $50, you still have $100 to check out Etsy and see if someone will sell you just the Invitation and the RSVP card. Or if you’re feeling creative, you can always try and create it yourself and print it out on heavy card stock.

Mine came out to $4.5 each after printing.  Not including postage.  Mine included an invite, rsvp, info card, and address card.  Could have done it cheaper with just an invite and rsvp.

Mine were from aprintablepress.com (they have some really nice options) and I had them printed somewhere but you could print them yourselves too.

@futuremrsk18:  I highly recommend Ann’s Bridal Bargains. They always have coupons, too. I got 125 invites, including outer and inner envelopes, invite, RSVP card and pre-addressed envelope, and reception card (with paper upgrade) for $165. Then I spent another $85 on postage.

 

My other option was Wedding Paper Divas, which I think has some sort of giltcity or living social deal going on right now. I liked their invitations more, but with all the things I wanted, it ended up being a little more than i wanted to spend.

OP have you tried Mixbook.com? If you sign up for their mailing list, they send out 40% and 50% off coupons all the time. We got our invitations from there and I LOVE them!
