My Aunt has a home business and does printing, mostly on clothes but does other stuff too. She offered to make my wedding invitations!! So wonderful and shes not charging me since my grandmother helped make some things for her daughters wedding.
Keeping this in mind, What I was wondering is what is the standard size for wedding invitations? She sent me a BEAUTIFUL sample of what our invitations will look like. I am reviewing the wording right now. The size she said they would be is 4 by 5. I just cut a piece of paper to see how big it would be and it seems awfully small for a wedding invitation. Especially for a formal wedding in a Catholic Church.
What do you all think? How big are your invitations? And I also feel ike, even if it is little, should I even say anything since she is giving them for free? We need between 200 and 225 invitations! It’s a lot. I feel so appreciative to her for the whole thing and don’t want to affend her!
Would greatly appreciate ALL comments!!!

@RoyalPurpleBride: I’m not sure the standard, but mine are 5 x 7 or 5 x 8 I forget. My response card is 4 x5 or 5×4 I’m terrible with these things. Ask for a sample and mention it maybe being bigger? Maybe it’s a typo.

Mine are pretty huge, they’re half an A4 piece of paper cut vertically. So it’s a very tall and narrow invite. However, we’re putting all of the information that would usually go on inserts on the main invite (like a map, travel info, accomodation info, the gift list info etc).
If you’re having that many made then it would actually be quite expensive for your Aunt to do for you which may be why she suggested a smaller size. You could ask if it would be possible to make them larger if it’s what you want, but maybe offer to do something for her in return (if you have any skills she could make use of?) or maybe offer to give her some money towards it if the bigger ones will cost her more.
