wedding invitations

what is a resonable amount to pay for wedding invites?

Anyone know of any good value comanies. I am useless with a pair of scissors!

  • It depends what you want. Anybody making handmade or embellished invites tends to charge more. Plain printed will be less.



    We've used Vistaprint (www.vistaprint.co.uk) and I've been really impressed. They're printed invites, no embelishment, but you could insert them into a pocketfold invite (www.pocketfoldinvites.co.uk)or glam them up a bit with DIY sparkly bits if you wanted to.



    The quality is really good (we had them printed on the "linen" paper which is a little bit more expensive). We got 60 day invites, 40 evening invites, postcards printed with directions to the hotel and accommodation suggestions, RSVP postcards, and matching envelopes, all using the same theme. The whole lot cost around £140, which I thought was pretty good. If you sign up the website but don't order initially, they send you e-mails with discount offers etc, which is well worth doing. I also know a few people have used them for save the dates - they do magnets which would be quite nice for this, we haven't bothered though. We used this design, but they have loads of templates, or you can upload your own design.






    Hope this helps!

  • i refused to spend hundreds of pounds on invites. It just wasn't something that mattered to me enough.



    I actually got my day invites for free from a friend who got married and had some left over, and I got my evening invites for £1.50 per pack of 10.



    So yeh...maybe not the best person to comment here....



    But I'd have a look at sites such as Vistaprint and Moo for custom invites that wont break the bank.

    I'm having a bit of a dilema about invitations. I'm good on photoshop, but useless with actual crafty things! I thought I could make my own but I really don't want them to look shit.



    My H2B's cousin's friend's girlfriend (still with me? image ) does wedding stationary and said she'd give us a discount so I might just go with her for peace of mind!
  • I'm getting mine from tatty lashes I found them on facebook they have postcard style ones from £1.15 each and they are gorgeous. They have a website as well as their fb page and I think they have a shop in liverpool x

    You can get the card making sets in hobbycraft (seen them in pound stores too!)



    They seem like they would be pretty easy to stick on, bells, dresses, top hats etc. If this was a bit too crafty you could personalise store bought invitations with just adding one to each.



    I seen ivitations from M&S that were simple cream card, "invitation" written on the front in script, and a bow on the top. Really simple but elegant looking - especially if your on a budget image

    For wedding invites that can be customized and personalized, but are still at a very good price take a look at this zazzle store and if you need anything just contact the seller to explain what you need and the work will be done in no time at all. seller is very helpful!

    Unfortunately Marilyn has taken ill and has shut down her site. However I have investigated and I can buy all the bits myself and make my own, also saving 80 quid, plus it puts a personal spin on it!
  • I would highly recommend eliteinvites.com we've only got our save the dates so far but they were so efficient and as theyr printers they are alot cheaper than alot of places i've seen x
