I think that’s exhorbantly expensive, but I only spent $120 on ALL my paperies for the wedding =.

Trim the budget elsewhere to make up for it? If you don’t trim corners somewhere, you’ll inevitably end up over budget. then you WILL feel bad!

Holy moley! I spent about $50 on my invites, not including stamps. ($26) We designed and printed our own out. I just needed to buy paper. It would have been around $100 if my Mother-In-Law didn’t have extra ivory envelopes from my SIL wedding. What can I say, I am a scavenger.

Umm, no. I think that is about the average price most people pay for invitations. My guess is that you went somewhere like a Papyrus? If so, the paper quality is among the best. 

Truth be told, many times with paper products, you do get what you paid for.

I know a lot people who spent more than that.  If you can afford it and you love them, I wouldn’t sweat it too much!

Oh my!! That sounds very expensive to me. I have not ordered mine yet, but plan on spending $100-$200 on 150 invites.

lol. but I I would like to add that nonetheless it still is just one of those horrible outrageous wedding expenses.

blah. My heart goes out to the ladies that were able to spend a few hundred on their invites and be thrilled with them! I aspire to be more like you! 🙂

Yeah, IMO that’s a lot of money for invitations.  Although I want pretty invites too I don’t want to spend too much money on something that people will just throw away.  I’m a bargain shopper and pretty happy with all the great deals I’ve scored on our wedding.  For instance–my dress was $330 with tax.  😉 

BUT, if you love them and really want them then it’s your choice to spend that much.  I agree though, you might need to cut back in other areas if the budget will suffer considerably.

Holy expensive! For something people are going to toss in a corner after your wedding and forget about. Im all for nice looking, high quality invites, but that is wayyy to much.

I bought my wedding paper stuff on etsy. I am pretty happy, as they did a custom letterpress design. It was also relatively cheap given everything I had done. However, I am a total perfectionist, and wished they would have done my letterpress a little differently.

yeah!  That’s $8/invite!  That’s insane.  I would never spend that much on a piece of paper someone would throw away.  Mine were under $200 for 100 invites.  That includes all the postage though.  You probably haven’t even included that in your price above, which will greatly increase the cost too!
