    I spent way more than I ever thought I would, but I LOVE my invites...

    I sent out 50 and kept one for myself (includes $30 sample): $509
    Postage ($1.81 each, yikes!): $90.50

    Total damage: $600

          I spent about $4-5 each (I forget what price we settled on). I think that is on the pricier side but we didn't send out a lot and I fell in love with them once I saw them. If we were inviting like 200 people I may have gone cheaper. Postage for the monogrammed stamps was very inexpensive with hubby's employee discount. I came out just under $200 total.

              I got them from Click the image to open in full size.

              these start at 285.00 but once you order extra envelopes, a colored ink, extra reception cards (one to write TA's info on, and one to let people know to book asap if they want to come because the resort fills quickly) I was up to almost 500 bucks. UGH I was just so sick of thinking about it I orderd them. They were really nich though and people really did like them, but do beware mine cost me almost a dollar postage for each one maybe 90 something cents.

                Yikes, I feel ripped off. I spent a little over $900 for 75 invitations. That includes the postage (the stamps were custom with our picture on them) and caligraphy for the outside of the envelopes, though.

                  That's how I'm starting to feel. I always thought invites would be expensive so I gave myself a budget of $1000 for them. Yes, I know that's a lot of $$$!!!

                  Well, I got a quote today for $1200 for 75 invites. That does however include calligraphy hand written on the outer and inner envelopes, an extra RSVP card for hotel/flight info and an extra Reception card for the Welcome Dinner. This also includes menu cards and thank you cards. But after seeing what everyone else paid, I think I'm going to be sick. I wish I was good at DIY projects.

                  Any bored ladies out there looking for a side gig in invitation making?

                    The problem is, the price most of us paid was just cost only for the materials. By the time we charge you even $20 an hour, we'd be up to what you're looking at paying for pro invites. Know what I mean? Probably the cheapest you'd be able to get me to do what I just did for mine would be like $10-12 each.
