How much do wedding invitations cost?
How much do wedding stationery, invitations, and other wedding paper goods cost? It really depends! Location, detail, guest count, and overall vision all affect the cost. Luxury and quality materials will of course mean a larger investment than a more standard approach.
From save the dates, invitations, detail cards, RSVP’s, programs, vow booklets, menus to escort cards, the options are many. The cost of hiring a professional is well worth the investment. A professional can work with you to plan out the perfect vision and provide you with heirloom pieces that you will treasure for years to come!
As with anything wedding and budget-related, what you spend will be up to you and your priorities as a couple. A luxury, heirloom package is well worth it if it will bring you and your guest’s joy.
“Stationery is one of the few tangible items that can be kept after a wedding and years later. It really does become an heirloom keepsake. Invitations set the tone of the wedding and is the first thing a guest receives notice about.
There is something special to have a physical item mailed to us in this digital age. Guests are delighted when they see their names in handwritten calligraphy, and they are blown away when they see what is inside!
Wondering how to take the next step? We recommend booking a consult with a designer once you have your theme and color palette and stationery styles in mind. Make sure to ask questions and explore all of your options. Then, you’re able to ask what options your designer can present to you within your price point. Some designers will have incentives if you purchase certain items together (such as invitations and menus/place cards).
Whether you choose a pre-designed suite or a bespoke approach, hiring a professional will ensure you have the perfect first impression for your guests.
