About how much did these set you back? We just got a proposal and I am kind of shocked at the price…no I am shocked. I know there are a baziliion different types of invitations you could order, but I didn’t think we picked out the mucho expensive ones!
I mean really almost $8 for an invitation alone? Not counting the RSVP card, envelopes or anything. Is this for real?? I am literally flabbergasted.

That price is kinda high, unless you are willing to pay that much. I got mine on etsy, had them done to exactly what I wanted and for everything, rsvp, directions, envelopes, invites, for 225 it was under $200 including shipping.

I spend a little over $200 on 100 really nice, high quality, embossed invites from http://www.annsbridalbargains.com/index.jsp’ defer=’defer. they will send you a free sample of as many invites as you want to try. It can’t hurt to go ahead and request a few. I think you will be surprised by the prices, quality, and service.

Mine were $100 for 50 invite suites (including invite, rsvp, reception card, and envelopes) – so $2 each. More than I wanted to spend, but oh well. I’d NEVER pay $8 per invite (to each his own though!).

We got our wedding invitations from a super expensive NYC designer, so I won’t recommend them due to price. But I just ordered my Thank You cards on Etsy custom made letterpress two colors for $80!

I’ll probably be ordering mine from wedding paper divas. It looks expensive at first, but they always run specials. I’ll probably get 100 invites and RSVP cards for around $220. I’m ordering my own pockets from paperandmore.com. I can get 100 for around $80.

That seems high to me – I was going to suggest that you try etsy, but I see plenty of people have suggested that already!

What type of printing method did you get quoted on? If you picked engraving or letterpress, they are going to be much more expensive then thermo and flat printing. But yes, invitations can be shockingly expensive if you happen to fall in love with some expensive bells and whistles. Do lots of shopping around and im sure you can find something in your budget.
btw, i fell in love with letterpress, custom ink, and cotton paper from Bella Figura and spent $1800 on mine….yikes!

Our were $550 (so I had to vote in the 500-1000 range) and included 75 invites, envelpoes with our return address, RSVP card, and RSVP envelope with our return address. Also, we had envelope liners for the invite envelope, and 2 color printing, which is obvi more expensive then 1 color. we got them at a local store, but the brand is William Arthur. I am really really pleased with how they came out!
