I’ve been speaking with other Invitation Professionals and we’ve been pondering these discussions…
- How much do invitations cost??? Very difficult question to answer as first, how many do you need? Will there be reception cards and accommodations cards? How about your thank you note cards, placecards, napkins, programs, etc? Unique Invitations by Deborah carries all of these items along with cake toppers, flower girl baskets, ring bearer pillows and so much more. Along with the pricing, do you require Letterpress, Foil, Shimmer paper, Thermography, Laser cut, Ribbon, Pockets? All of these styles cost differently, depending on the printing method. Ideally, you should make a consultation where you will be able to touch and feel and see in person the invitation you like and not be determined by a photograph on your computer. Often, the photos look better and sometimes, worse than in person. No surprises this way and you have a person you can communicate with, check for errors, advise you in the correct path. In your experience, are Chevy/GM/Ford/Porsche/Cadillac/Benz the same cost? Do you expect them to be the same? Invitations aren’t either.
- “The Invitations Just Go In the Trash!” First thing – the invitation is the first introduction to your special day! It sets the tone of what your guests should expect. Also, your guests will be looking at your invitation for 2 months beforehand so it’s not being trashed for quite a while. It may also be saved for a momento, framed, photographed for your wedding photos. You can put it into a shadow box with other wedding mementos from your wedding/event. While talking about going in the trash, what about the flowers, leftover food, napkins, and everything left at the end of the fabulous event? Your invitations actually get more bang for your buck as it’s cherished for much longer than anything else being used.
I hope that this article puts a light into some of your thoughts of your invitations. I would be delighted to work with you on helping you get your special invitation if located in Philadelphia, Suburbs, South Jersey or Delaware.
