    Yes, I see what you're saying.

    Do you think $1200 is a good price for 75 professional invites, with all those extras? Apparently the Thank You cards are free right now too - it's a special promotion going on.

      I gave myself the same budget. Before I read this thread I thought I did a good job coming in under budget, haha. You still have time. I am sure the girls on the board can help you find a website or something that doesn't require DIY and is a little less expensive. :)

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?

                It totally depends on what you're getting for your $1200. Do you have samples or pics?

                    i'd totally do it, but like sarah said, it would be similar pricing...

                    personally, i can't imagine spending that much on invites, but i'm pretty cheap as far as that stuff's concerned...i wouldn't say i'm necessarily a crafty person, but these really weren't too complicated...is it the creativity that you think you're lacking or the time?

                      i got mine through a discount site that is linked to costco and the cost for 200 invites with insert for travel info and response card was under $300. the invites were beautiful and simple and looked just like the expensive ones that sell for way more in bridal stores.
