I hadn’t planned on spending more than $100 (just to have the design done by someone on etsy) We also planned on printing them ourselves and/or taking them to be printed which wouldn’t cost much…

 but then my wonderful Aunt and Uncle told me that they want to pay for our invitations. I remembered seeing the best Invitations that I HAD to have but wasn’t sure about the price. So we opted for the less expensive option. $4.00 each

My Aunt and Uncle also decided that they want to throw in the Save The Dates as well which are $1.50.

We paid almost nothing for our invitations. Maybe $20 total. I designed them myself, I work for a printing company so the printing was free, and I had a gift certificate that I’d been saving to Paper Source. The most expensive item was the vintage postage.

We paid $5.50 per invitation suite which included just the invite, reply card and the envelopes (really all we needed – we had a very detailed website). After the cost of calligraphy ($1.50 per suite) and postage we were hovering around $8 a pop. We only had about 50 invites to send out so it really wasn’t that horribly expensive.

All told, we probably spent about $350 for 90 invitations including stamps and envelopes. We designed them ourselves, made the pocketfolds ourselves, and printed everything at home. (Thanks, Lexmark!) It took a lot of time to make them, but we have more time than we do money these days so we didn’t mind.
