    Okay so I absolutely in love with passport invites....the gilt who made our save the date post cards was amazing but she is charging 6.50 per passport invite I need at least 100 and she offers no discounts. I do not want to diy because I run a business and have no time to make them for myself becaause I would end up spending 1000.00 trying to make them 100% perfect...im a.perfectionist. : ( any suggestions?!

      100 invites...wow, that's a lot! I'm not sure how early you are in your wedding planning, but could you do the passport invites later when you have a sense of how many guests are NOT coming at all? If it were me, I wouldn't spend money on invites on people I know can't or won't come.

        I would love to do that but I have a huge italian family. If someone did not get an invite it would start ww3. Ughh family.

          I searched everywhere for passport invites as I had a similar # to send out and couldn't afford $5-10 per invite so I ended up DIY-ing them.  You could purchase the $10 template from ayleebits.com and then have a printing company print and cut the inside pages so all you would have to do is the covers which are not too time consuming.  You would have to spend a little time putting all of the information into the pages but that probably wouldn't take too long.  I definitely found that the most time consuming part was printing and cutting the inside pages.

            Could you possibly send out a save-the-date first?  And get an unofficial rsvp for who'll be attending?  That way people still know they are invited but if they don't have intentions on coming, you won't have to spend as much on the passport invites...

              Save the dates went out this morning... all 100 of them. All these people say they are.coming but when it comes down to it I will be interested to see how many actually attend. I think I might have to suck it up and spend the money....in my family if I sent an invite to one person and not to another they would call.asking why they didn't get one and how.its.bad manners I.can hear the complaints rolling in already. Ugh.

                Maybe shop around other vendors? Ones who will do discounts for higher volume - Allurements by Rebecca for example has different pricing for more than 100 invitations.

                 

                We also have to do 100+ invites (boarding passes) so I feel your pain!!

                    I used BeyondDesign on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/...-cruise-wedding  The pictures on the link are our actual invites... they were $4.85 each... which was the most affordable I found.  Totally worth it!!  We got soooo many compliments!

                      She actually made my save the dates! Ill have to look into those did she include a rsvp card with that?? Not sure why mine would be 650.00 I've already spent a good deal of money with her and no discount : (
