I put together my mock invitation suite last night, and I’m pretty pleased with it. The belly band is the only thing I may change (didn’t realize the pattern was so close to the envelope).
I got the invitation kit at Target for $49.99/50 invites (which included the invite, outside envelope, RSVP, RSVP envelope and pearlized pocket envelope). I had maps made by Etsy Seller, “lilacsandlace.” She originally was going to charge me $3 but she had them done w/in 24 hours, so I paid her $10. I printed them off myself on heavyweight paper. I had extra heavyweight paper so I did the Accommodation Sheet myself and printed it on the same heavyweight paper. The contents all go together in the heavyweight pearlized pocket envelope. Finally, I bought a patterned piece of paper from Hobby Lobby and cut it into strips to use as the belly band and put a pearl applique sticker on the front.
3 boxes of invitation kits – $149.97
250 sheets of heavyweight paper – $15.00
Maps – $10.00
Bellyband paper – 50 cents/sheet (will probably need 10 sheets) – $5.00
Pearl Appliques – $2.99/27 stickers – $16.60
TOTAL – Approximately $197 for 150 invitation suites
