Well, I think if it really is just five people, you shouldn’t order invitations. What about making a pretty little handmade invitation or card just for those five?

And as far as the announcements go, it’s hard to know if $500 is sufficient without knowing how many you plan to send. Do you have a number?

considering you won’t need enclosures with an announcement (RSVP, Receptioncard, directions, ec) $500 seems like a reasonable budget for an announcement. I agree an invitiation for a 5-7 person wedding doesn’t seem needed, but I do like the idea of a hand made card. You could do something beautiful and keep as a keepsake for very little money

I agree.  I think invitations make people feel special.  Ya know, it’s saying you want them to be a part of your special day.  I like them even if they are handmade or printed.  You could always buy a set from Michaels or Target and just print them off…. they have super easy kits for like $20 i think.

I think $500 should be good for announcements
