The price per invite can vary from $1 to more than $100. It all depends on the design, ink, typeface, printing process, paper and quantity.

Classic chInvitationsoices of ivory, cream or white card stock paired with black or gold font is a best. Typically, pastels and hard-to-read fonts like an overly scripted typeface can sacrifice readability.

A 4.5-inch-by-6.25-inch rectangular card is the traditional size and shape for wedding invitations. Trends are becoming more playful or fun with modern shapes such as circular, scalloped and square invitations. The only drawback is they can increase the postage.

Traditionally, whoever is hosting the wedding is listed first on the invitation. Customarily, you should spell everything out, including the time of the ceremony. On classic wedding invitations, there’s always a request line after the host’s name such as “request the honor of your presence.” Don’t try to squeeze too much information onto the invitation. To save on pricing, have directions and venue details added to a wedding website.

Ordering everything from one stationer can save you time and money. It will also make the invitation process easier on you.

Prior to the wedding:

Find stationer 9 to 11 months

Save-the-date cards 6 to 8 months

Order invitations 4 to 5 months

Mail invitations 6 to 8 weeks, (destination or holiday weddings, mail invitations 10 to 12 weeks)
