Too pricey?
Posted: May 22, 2008 7:45 PM

I found these invitations online and contacted the woman a few weeks ago.  I love this invitations, but the quote she gave me shocked me.  How much would you girls pay for invites like these?

She quoted 700-800 dollars.  I don't have that kind of money for invitations for 100 people.

I don't know how much invites run, I did my own.  But if you can't afford them, then you've answered your question about them being too pricey.

Maybe another post with the link asking if anyone knows where you can find similar invites for less would be more effective.  :-)

Good luck!

I think they are worth it if they are wrapped in $20 bills Money mouth  Kidding of course. 

 My FH and I are paying for our own wedding so we don't have a large budget, we are taking an additional engagement photo and uploading it to and pinting up the postcard size invitations with our pictures on them.  I think people are more apt to keep the invitation because they are personal plus they are 33 cents a piece.  I personally don't want to spend a lot of my budget on something people eventually throw away.

If you're asking the question, then yes.  I didn't even look at them.  No matter how amazing, if you're asking the question, then they're too pricey.  We paid more than that per person for invitations and we accepted the price right off the bat.  It was something that was a priority for me, so even Chad the Cheapskate didn't bat an eyelash at the price.

Keep looking.

I personally think that would be too much for me to spend; I don't have that big of budget. But I did get 100 invites, colored inner, and outer, with response cards and envelopes for those as well for $200. They are awesome and I got them from american I looked through it again and found some that were similar to the ones you liked. I would definitely recommend it! here is the website

Hope this helps!
