How much did you all pay for wedding invitations?

I’ve been looking to get my wedding invitation suites made but I haven’t found anything online (Shutterfly, Zazzle, etc) that I love. My mom and I went to a paper and print company over the weekend and I fell enough with this very pretty invitation suite; it’s elegant and romantic and it fits our theme of Italian elegance and romance. The caveat is that I was quoted $1400, which is almost double my budget. Womp Womp.


Anyone know where I can rent out my first born?! LOL jk jk

    Design your own on Canva.com and they offer printing services or you can take the file on a flash drive to Staples/OfficeMax to print


    Annsbridalbargains.com and minted.com are also options. You can also try Etsy.

    Are you looking for specifically the vellum overlay with the roses? If so maybe check Etsy. If not, the invitation itself reminds me a bit of mine..the designer can create versions in whatever color you would like and you can change the fonts of the names. I paid a little under $300 for 50 invitations, detail enclosure cards, small rsvp on our website cards, and matching envelopes with a lavender/eucalyptus interior which you can change

    I ordered mine from a shop on Etsy and paid $200 for 100 invites with writing on the back, RSVP cards, and envelopes. There are a ton of options on Etsy. I also couldn’t find much through online websites that I loved.

    Our venue has an all inclusive package that includes invitations & the budget was $224 per 100 invitations. We went over by $125 since we added things (RSVP, pre printed envelopes etc). I worked with Emily O’Loughlin @ Picture Perfect Invitations her # is 480-388-6058 if you’re interested.

    I ordered magnet Save the Dates from VistaPrint and it was $62 (including shipping and tax) for 40. Pro tip if you order a free sample kit from them they will send you a 50% off coupon to use within 6 months. I plan to use this for my invitations.

    I got my information card of etsy. They have amazing designs. They also aren't super expensive and you can do it all by yourself if you wanted to.

    We did our STDs on Minted in the postcard layout, and used a discount code. After the code, we spent $95 for 105 STDs.

    I have our invite made, just not ordered yet, but the estimated cost (without a discount code), is around $250 for 105 invites. The price is also including printing on the back of the invites. We'll have a picture of us, with a sentence directing guests to use our wedding website for RSVP, directions, etc. They also come with free envelopes AND free recipient addressing. Which is awesome, and saves me from paying extra/writing out addresses!!

    This price could be lower if we don't print on the back, and if I can find a discount code. I will say this, printing on the back is significantly cheaper than us ordering RSVP and detail cards. Plus it saves paper!

    I got my invitations from Etsy - $155 (not including $10 tax or $10 shipping) for 90 invite sets. Each set included three cards: a main invitation, a details card (hotel room block, driving directions, etc), and an RSVP card. They also came with envelopes. The seller was willing to customize as much as needed until we were completely happy with the result.

    I got mine from Ann's Bridal Bargain. I paid around $150 for 100 invitations, with rsvp card and envelopes included. It's a personal choice, but remember, outside of maybe a parent or grandparent, most people are throwing away the invitation after the wedding.

    I ordered the invites themselves from Magnet Street for $50. They tend to have great sales! Then, to make them a little fancier, I ordered an inexpensive laser-cut invitation pocket from Amazon. That part cost me about $50. Buying the pieces separate actually ended up being significantly cheaper than most options I was looking at! How much did you all pay for wedding invitations? 4

    These are gorgeous! Do you mind sharing the Amazon link for the laser cut pocket? I am super into it and have been considering the pocket as an alternative to the vellum jacket.


    I have been looking into the buying everything separately, and that’s definitely an option I just can’t seem to find floral printed vellum that’s cheaper than what I was quoted!

    Thanks so much! Here is the link for the pocket folder! I did burgundy, but if you want another color, there are plenty of other options on amazon.

    I've looked into printing my own vellum before. If you're crafty, you could always try that! The vellum is very beautiful too.

    I had a local artist design mine. She makes custom greeting cards, hand painted watercolor portraits, and other neat things! She charged me $25 for the files for my Save the Date AND invitations. I had them printed on linen paper from Vistaprint. I ordered an address template off of Etsy. All in all? Paid right at $100.

    I designed and printed my own at home. then decided to add a mail-able wax seal to both the invite and envelopes, so: cardstock, computer ink, vellum paper, wax sticks, envelopes, AND stamps, just under $300 total.

    That’s a steal! Do you mind sharing your vellum design and the type of printer you used?

    We went with Minted for our invitations and website. They have a lot of options for customizing your invitation suite and also let you see a proof before anything gets printed! You are also able to work with a designer if you are making changes to the style you select. What sealed the deal for us was that they offer free invitation addressing that follows the style of the invitation Smiley smile . We went with the all-in-one style, which meant the RSVP is attached to the bottom, so they just detach and send back like a post card. For 65 invitations we spent around $180.
