what is the average cost everyone is spending on invitations? I need about 50 and was hoping to spend around $100, the stationary isn't the quality I would like. I got a few quotes of around $250, is that typical for quality stationary and a simple invitations?

The cheapest invitations I've seen have been on VistaPrint, but the quality is not the same as getting invitations from a true invitation company. I got the 10 free to test it out and wasn't very impressed - but everyone's different. WeddingPaperDivas seem to have reasonable prices, but it depends on whether you're just getting the invitation plus the response card/envelopes, reception cards, etc.

Invitations can range from less than a dollar to up to about $25 an invite (I'm sure you could go higher if you wanted but that is the highest I've seen)

I used Ana De Roux who is a vendor on this site and got passport invites at $1.00 per invite. We got 100 plus addressed envelopes for under $200. She's been great to work with and everyone has liked the unique passport invites. Just to avoid confusion...she does more than passports wink.gif

Good luck, I know it's weird to think about paying so much for paper that you are getting rid of anyway...

I second Miss Sunshyne's tip -- Invitations By Dawn is who I am currently dealing with now to order my invitations, the lined inner envelopes and the return-addressed outer envelopes. Before I decided to go with I.B.D., I was sent samples of 3 different styles I liked, and then from there, it made my decision easy as to which style I was going to purchase.

 

All together, my total with Invitations By Dawn is going to be around $150.00 for 50 of each of the items I mentioned above (after a 20% off, semi-annual promotional code has been applied, which is going on through 7/14/09, so you can take advantage of it if you hurry!).

 

We're spending another $60.00 with Allurements By Rebecca for custom RSVP postcards using the logo she's created for us (and you're in luck - she's right here on BDW and she's amazing!) To finish everything off, we're adding a paper backing to our invitations (the invitation itself is a sheer vellum, and I wanted something to put behind them so they will "pop" for another $50.00 or so from David's Bridal Online Store (DIY Deckle Set) -- after we buy the raffia we're using to attach the sheer invitations to the backing, we are looking at spending just over approximately $260.00 for 50 complete invitation sets.

 

I think your invitations are an important place to spend a little extra $$ if you can; it's a great way to leave a lasting impression with guests who will be attending and what they can expect/the style of your event, and they'll be a hit even those that may not be able to make it!

 

Good luck! wink.gif

Unfortunetly we feel in love with pocket wedding invitations and could quite possibly be spending $400 on our invites...Ouch! But I can't find anyone cheaper or who has the specific pocket we are looking at getting.

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
