Hi, I'm Heather

Welcome to the blog, I am so happy you are here! The decision to start a blog was not made lightly and I am so excited to offer you my experience and to help you get to know me a little bit more. Before you dive in, there are a few things you should know!

I am a boy mom, wife, designer, paper-lover (it's like Christmas morning when I receive a paper shipment) and I am OBSESSED with the show FRIENDS! I dare you to challenge me on FRIENDS trivia.

What is the average cost of Wedding Invitations?

How much is this invitation?


What is the average cost of 100 wedding invitations?


I get asked these questions quite a bit and there really isn’t a straightforward answer. I know that it seems frustrating to see something you LOVE and not be able to know the cost right away. Trust me, I have been there!


The ANSWER. It depends!


Agh the daunting answer you were expecting but not the answer you wanted to hear. The best way I know how to describe this answer to you is every wedding is different, so every wedding invitation is going to be different.


There are several different stationers you can work with that will all have very different ranges of “custom” invitations. Some will include more things; some will have the bare minimum. You may get an itemized quote; you may get a lump-some amount. Depending on your area and the designers you choose to work with will determine the route you may decide to take.


As a stationer, it is my mission to create your dream invitations with little to no stress on your end and my pricing reflects that. I put 100% into each of my designs and whether it is a pre-set design in my semi-custom collection or a custom creation that is designed specially for you.


I have worked with several couples with budgets that are all over the map and as I try to be accommodating to everyone, sometimes it just doesn’t work out. On average, my couples spend anywhere from $800-1200 on their custom wedding invitations.


What is included in that $800-1200?


Well, that again will depend on the different elements and embellishments you choose. So, let’s look at an example. Everyone LOVES examples:


Average $1200 Custom Wedding Invitation order:



115 Custom Wedding Invitations digitally printed, with a glitter backer and Pocket Enclosure

115 Response Cards and Colored Envelope

115 Details Card

115 Glitter Belly Band & Tag

Guest Addressing, Return Address Printing, Response Envelope Addressing

Foil Accents

Envelope Liner

Full Assembly


You will read different blogs and they will all tell you that they have done studies and give you different figures, that may in fact be true, but when you really break it all down. It depends on YOU and what you are willing to spend on stationery.


QUESTION: What is the cheapest way to do wedding invitations?


What if I cant afford custom?


Most stationers offer a semi-custom collection that you can choose from and the pricing is much more straight forward, that is until you start adding a bunch of bells and whistles. Coming this summer, I will be officially launching a complete semi-custom collection where you will be able to choose a specific suite at a much more affordable price. Currently you can check out my Carly Collection, which is a step above from what the Semi-Custom Collection will be, that's because I still design the Carly Collection to cater to your specific needs. This collections starts a little over $4 a suite and will include:


5x7 Semi-Custom designed wedding invitation digitally printed on 120# premium card stock

4.25 x 5x5 Semi-Custom designed response card digitally printed on 120# premium card stock

A7 Metallic mailing envelope

A2 White premium envelope

Guest Addressing, Return Address Printing, Response Envelope Addressing


QUESTION: What is a reasonable price for wedding invitations?


February Special - Semi Custom LOVE Collection


For the month of February, I am offering special pricing on 1 select Semi-Custom Design. That is the LOVE Collection. You can get the complete suite for $650+tax for 100 Wedding Invitations. Be sure to check out the collection details here! Don't wait on this one, special pricing is ONLY available through the month of February!


***In addition to the $650, if you order TOMORROW, Valentine's Day I will be offering an additional 10% off using the code FEBLOVE. This code will not go out on Social Media until tomorrow so it's an early gift to you for reading the BLOG the day I publish it! -


This code will disappear February 15th!***





Don’t forget about the postage!


Not everyone reminds you, that more often than not, you will need 2 separate stamps. One for your response card and one for the mailing envelope. Chances are your mailing envelope will be anywhere from $.070-$1.30+ AND the forever stamp on the response card per envelope. The more you add to your suite, the higher the postage. Don’t even get me started on hand cancelling. We will save that for another post!


xoxo, Heather
