Wedding paper divas has a groupon right now that can substantially reduce your price. What’s your budget?

I’m not the best person to answer, since I’m not actively planning yet but I guess it depends on what you want to do.  First, realize that even MAILING 100 invitations is going to cost you $50+ (and most invitation suites need extra postage).  Are you including a response card (don’t forget to factor in postage for that!) or are you doing online response?  Are you including a card that points people towards a website for details?

How nice do you want your invitations to be? 

On vista print right now, you can get 100 basic 6×9 invitations on stock paper for $52. But this doesnt include all the enclosure cards – rsvp and rsvp envelope, directions, reception, accomodations, etc. 

I bought mine from Wedding Paper Divas- I paid 1.59 for the invitation, 1.04 for the response cards, 1.19 for the enclosure card (bought two enclosure cards 1 with reception information, one with hotel accomodation information & our wedding website). Oh, and I paid to have my return address pre-printed on the back of the RSVP envelopes- saved a lot of time and was worth it to me. Retail on my invitations was around $600, but I had a 25% coupon code. (WHICH- they actually have 25% off today, too! They have sales a lot so never buy full price). 

Don’t forget to account for postage- will add another $50 or so, depending on the size and weight of your envelope. (you put stamps on the outer envelope plus the rsvp envelope).

Your best budget option might be buying cardstock, designing the invite yourself, and printing and cutting somewhere like office Max. I did this for my menus, and paid less than $20 for 200.

LaurieW:  If you are doing online RSVPs that cuts back significantly on cost.  There are lots of invitation templates available for download on Etsy from $15-$25.  Then you could use Vistaprint.  Vistaprint had a groupon recently, so would be worth looking for a discount that way, too.

If you’re on a really low budget, check out the DIY invitation kits. There’s lots at Michaels. They’re really nice, and really cheap. They just involve a bit of effort on your part.

LaurieW:  I bought a template on etsy and printed my invitations at Staples, that would probably fit within your budget of $50-65 but that’s not including envelopes. Envelopes I bought separately at enevelopes.com for a really great price.

Ebay. I bought a sample from the seller first. I loved it!  They are inexpensive and includes the print/tex you want  on it. The envelope,and they sent me free samples of candy box favors.

  • Wedding: March 2014

I ordered my wedding invitations from a website called “Zazzle.com”. Our wedding was in the month of March and in late December of that year, the website was doing a HUGE holiday cards sale with 75% off ALL “paper” items, which included invitations, holiday cards, etc. I happened to just stumble upon it in a google search. Needless to say, I took advantage of that and instead of us spending $1,000 on our invitations/RSVP cards, we paid $250. And these invitations were gorgeous, great thick card stock, perfect print, color…just overall very well made. 

They had the same sale about a month ago but this time it was 70% which is when I ordered my holiday cards.

Try zazzle, most are under 2$ per invite and if you aren’t doing rsvp cards that saves that extra cost. If you sign up for emails, they occasionally send out 50% off invites coupons. I am currently hoping there will be one around the time I need to order mine. Waiting patiently….lol
