How much are you ladies spending on invitations. I was given a quote for what I thought were simple invitations and was quoted almost $1000. No bells or whistles.

    I spent about $3k on 150 invitations, details cards, envelopes, and addressing. But I had engraved invitations. Were the invites you got a quote for screenprinted or were they letterpress? Did they have any foil? Type of paper and the way they are made is a big factor in price.

    My sister designed my invites and I had them printed. All together, invitation, RSVP card, details card, envelopes, stamps and address labels were about $1k for 150 invitations.

    I got 200 invitations that included post card RSVPs on Ann's Bridal Bargains for $147 after shipping during a 30% off sale! I highly recommend them! They have beautiful designs, great prices, and frequent sales! The invitations, also, came in 3 days after I placed my order!

    Oh wow :o I'm probably just going to get basic cards and attaching a picture that I'm going to take to the front. (It's something my grandmother, who was a landscape photographer used to do). My grandma was the only grandparent I had who was alive when I met my fiance, and she passed almost 3 years ago, before we got engaged, and before her great grand daughter was born. I felt like making invitations like she used to would be a nice tribute to pay. I'm going to write the information in them myself, and it's gonna cost me almost nothing. I couldn't imagine spending so much on something everyone is just going to throw out.

    I would 100% never spend anywhere near $1000 for pieces of paper that physically get thrown away. Not even recycled, potentially thrown in the garbage. Smiley cry I can't speak to how much mine would've cost because my brother designed and printed everything for free at his workplace for us. I would look into the affordable options the other girls have suggested here.
