Hey ladies, we met with someone who will create a custom wedding invitation for us. postcard style and her quote was $367.45 for 200 invites & envelopes and 200 rsvps..

Is that a lot? I'm not sure about pricing for invites. I just don't want to spend more in the wrong areas..lol we debated a lot on spending the money on 'china' and chose to get the videography pkg we wanted instead. just need perspective from my online support group. Smiley smile your thoughts? any advice?

    I paid $175 for 150 invites, and RSVPs were attached, no envelopes needed, but that was the cheapest ones I could find without going through vista print or something similar Smiley smile

    I would definitely check around before you commit to her. It's not a terrible price but you can find a more reasonable price. Even printing your own will be less. We printed ours (250 qty. w/ rsvps and envelopes for both) for $230. That included purchasing the ink and paying for shipping since we ordered the blank invites online. Total cost, INCLUDING all the stamps, was $430 for 250 invites.

    If you love them and can afford them, it's your choice. Personally, I wouldn't spend that much on something someone is going to throw away. I'd rather save that money for a better reception. I got 150 invites for $40 from Hobby Lobby (they were 50% off). They aren't super fancy or anything, but they get the job done.

    Edit to add: I do have to print my own, so that's the downside of getting invitations from a place like Hobby Lobby.

    I think what matters are how important they are to you. I didn't want to spend a fortune, and I wanted them to look traditional, with brown ink. We got ours at Bed Bath and Beyond. I think they were $145 for 125. That included inner and outer envelopes. We have had many compliments on them. All of our other printed stuff we got from Vista Print, including our invite enclosures, which didn't match exactly, but coordinated well with our invitations. Good luck finding just the right ones!

    It's not a lot. However if it is postcard style why do you need envelopes? that should be required and if not then it should cost less.

    I spent $100 ordering just the nice paper and envelopes and stamps to make 75. Plus I got a quote to print my own design and that was going to be $60.

    Remember you are paying for their services and for the materials. Think of what you get paid per hour and how long you think this would take plus add in any time for revisions you might want and then add the paper and print costs.

    If you are not set on custom than it will cost less but designing is not cheap.

    I bet she needs envelope for attaching the RSVPs unless there is another way to hook them together for the mailing process and eliminating the envleopes all together.

    Hmmm, I guess I may have spent too much....$450 for 125 invitations, inserts, RSVP cards and envelopes. And then since it was heavy, the postage was higher. But I loved the invitations!

    If she's customizing them I say it's a good price. Yes, you can go to a website and have them made but there nothing like having one of a kind invitations.

    I think that is a great price for custom design & printing. You can definately cut cost going DIY but if you don't want the hassle of doing it yourself, go with your custom fit. save yourself some work. you also paying for the ease of assemble & design.

    believe me I completely designed & am putting together my invites & it is a true job.

    Thats an amazing deal -with and really what matters is if they are what you want. I went waaaaaaay over my original invitation budget - and have never regretted it for a second.
