Hello everyone, how much are you all spending on invitations? Is $400 reasonable if it includes pre-printed envelopes?

    Mine was $500 for the STD, Invite and RSVP card, she addressed them all as well. But this was only for 35 sets.

    Yikes! Depends on your budget. I only spent $95 on 100 invitations, RSVP postcard, and envelopes. Bought the PDF off etsy and took it to a local printing company.

    You could probably get them for less than $100 on vistaprint. No offense to anyone, I know invitations are important to some people, but I can't justify spending that much on paper. Especially when I know guests will eventually throw them away.

    ETA: I spent like $20 on 10 invitations.

    It seems like alot but it depends on where you are ordering them from.

    ETA: just saw your using Minted. Someone just posted about a 15% coupon code today. That should help a little bit at least

    I paid less than $300 for 150 complete invites. This included the invitation, an envelope for that and the RSVP with the return preprinted envelope. Check Vista Print

    For my budget, that is pricey - but that's my budget, it's a personal thing.

    Mine will be $150 for 50, includes : invites, addressed rsvps, and individual guest addressing for outer envelopes. Really depends on your budget and style choice. Some options cost a lot more than others. But over $7 an invite/rsvp set seems a lot to me!

    I spent $60 total on invites on VistaPrint. (not including postage) Online RSVP so no response cards or inserts.

    That was with upgraded paper during their 50% off sale. I ordered 100.

    Go to Walmart/target or party city. Buy the cards you find appealing, and create a PDF of the invitation & how you want it to look. And then you can try going to an office depot or max where they have a Copy & Print Department. They can print them for you, I just printed off 50 for $6.

    What you spend is completely up to you. Personally, I wouldn't want to spend that much.

    I spent about $100 for 150 invitations through VistaPrint.

    We're expecting to pay about $400 for 55 invitations, including RSVP cards, direction cards, stamps, etc. But we are super obsessed with quality.
