I budgeted $5 per person for invites, but they ended up being much cheaper – even with pocketfolds.  I think I’m spending around $300 for 100 invites (we’re inviting 150 people).  We got ours printed professionally, but I designed them and we’re assembling them ourselves.

If you just got engaged, hold off on thinking about invites for a while. Save that listing somewhere you can find it again, but give yourself a few months to let your wedding evolve and determine if it still fits.  You may find that closer to the date you like something better.

We spent $50.00 total on 80 invitations.  2 boxes of 40 count each of Brides.com invitations from Michael’s and they were on sale.  They’re usually about $40-50 each and we got them %40 off.  We invited about 120 guest (remember you only need 1 per household – I was thinking total headcount).  I was able to print them out on my home computer & it was easy & I loved them.  The kit came with invitation, ribbon, rehearsal dinner invite, response cards – everything we needed.  I actually spent more on stamps ($80.00) than I did on the invitations. 

I also agree collect ideas but keep looking.  As your colors and ideas come together you may find something that fits perfectly.  I started ripping out things from magazines and putting them in a folder.

Regardless there’s an inexpensive way to do but I put aside $250 for my invitations, save the date & thank you’s in my budget.  We’ll just meet it but don’t forget about stamps!  I did.

I don’t know if you would consider DIY but VistaPrint has a Living Social deal right now, $10 for $50 and you could order the pocket folds from somewhere and put it all together?
