To make sure that you haven’t forgotten to do anything, or just to get a quick glimpse of what needs to be done in order to ensure that your wedding invitations go out smoothly.
- What it may cost
Prices depend on the kind of invitations you choose, where you order them, the ink, the typeface, the printing process and obviously how many you will need. You’ll spend anywhere from 50 cents to $10+ each. Remember to add in extra if you are going to hire a calligrapher.
- Save on invitations
The best way to save money on invitations is to keep it simple. Top-of-the-line papers, colored ink and custom designing will only push up the price.
Don’t order the exact number of invites you’ll need order 15-20 extra. It’s always better to have extra than to have to reorder more later, which will more than likely be more expensive. Also, ordering extra envelopes to leave room for addressing errors.
- Proof first
Just before your invitations go to print, the stationer will forward you a proof of the actual version for review. Some may send a copy via fax, where you’ll check the text for spelling errors and confirm the accuracy of date, time and other important information. Sometimes you’ll receive a true-to-life template where you’ll be able to check colors, graphics, alignment, resolution, etc. As you carefully review, double-check the date, just to be on the safe side!
