How much did you spend on your invitations?

Recommended Posts

The save the dates were free!! My very creative (and very preg- which is why she didn't do the invitations- baby Isabelle was more than enough for her to handle) friend did them for me- and I just gave her a $75 gift card to her fav store- Pottery Barn..

 

The invitations- ouch-- Hopefully the financee doesn't log on and see this posting- hehe-- we are sending out 55, and we are paying $710 - this included calligraphy addressing, postage for reply envelopes w/ addressing, etc... but I love them!!

hmm- well i thought I'd copy a pic of them but can't figure out how to do it- -hehe---

I would be interested to know how much DIYers paid for their boarding pass invites.

I am hoping to spend less than 300$, including postage. We have 100 to send out.

 

Thanks for your input

I spent $100 on 50 invites from nepalesepaper.com. They are phenomenal. The only DIY was printing up the invite insert on cardstock that is included. I could not believe how affordable they were for such beautiful, unique and eco-friendly invites.

here is a pic from the website. You can get whatever color of leaf stain and paper you want. I did the natural paper and a fuschia leaf. I'll replace this one with a pic of mine when I have one ready:

can anyone post updated pricing on their invites and where they got them from? I'm definitely not a DIY'er so this would help a lot. Thanks!

wow I am down to about 4 months to go till the wedding. We are having about 20 guests at the destination and then AHR were looking at sending out about 200 invites maybe 150 if I get one last look at the list before the mom's take over. I also want to do two different invites one for those just coming to the AHR and others for those coming with us? Has anyone ever done that?? I really want to go cheap on invites but I'm not having much luck at all! Mainly because I have gone all out crazy with the OOT bags!! any suggestions? I would like to stay around 200 to 300 bucks. I know pretty tight!! bunny_4.gif

I think I spent around $100 for my boarding passes (with all the supplies and printing--there we a lot!) and probably around the same fore the invitations for my AHR, I sent about 80 of them. So yes jenny I did the same thing, send invitations to those who were going to mexico and then a seperate one for those going to just the AHR, most knew what we were doing and did not care if they were just going to the AHR.

We're making DIY boarding passes. We are sending out 45, it costs us :

- 12 $ paper from walmart

- 5$ paper from Hobby Lobby (half price)

- 12 $ paper from Michael's

- 10$ enveloppes

- 26$ trimmer

- 9$ palm tree punch

- 12$ round punch

- 7$ round corner punch

- 8$ raffia

- 5$ for address labels and return labels

- 4$ for printing the jackets, the printer would not accept the cardstock we used for jackets. We print them in black and white (over colored cardstock)

 

Total 110$, postage not included, and all the fun of designing (of FI loved the trimming cuttins and all).

 

All the jackets are done we are still to finish the passes wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
