Well its more to get them made. Just google it you’ll find loads of websites. Now most shops ( walmart, Target, Micheals ) carry blank one that’s you can fill in on the computer and printer yourself. Those one’s range about $20-$30 for about 50

you need to contact a company that sells and prints wedding invitations. they will have choices of wording for you to choose from so you can be assured of having the proper wording to fit your situation.

for instance, the invitation is worded one way if you are paying for your own wedding, and a totally different way if either of your parents are paying. or if you have parents who are divorced and remarried, etc…so you need professional help to determine which wording best suits your situation.

if you are going to invite 100 people to the wedding, order 110 invitations so that have a few extras in case of mistakes. you will also need rsvp cards, so people can respond to let you know if they are coming which helps you to plan how much food you will need. and you will need thank you notes for sending to the people who give you gifts. you can expect to pay between 50 and 150 dollars for around 100 invitations, depending on what style you choose.

there are lots of online places to buy invitations that are really good and very reliable with lots of styles to choose from. here are a couple of links to very good sources. http://www.wedding-needs.com/cheap-wedding-invitations.asp

you can spend as little as 30c per invite if you diy.
expect to pay from $1.00 to $5 per invite at boutique stores.
good sources for cheap invites are
if you dont see anything you like you can ask a seller to make a design for you at about the same cost as normal. shop around, there are some great invites.

There are also a tonne of cheap print houses like vistaprint that are always having sales.
check this tutorial for making cheap postcards – they’re practiaclly the same as the invites just heaps cheaper.

if you want to make your own invites then check out this site.

All you need to do in order to get wedding invitations custom made for you is to contact an invitation store through their website or store and explain that you need 100 wedding invites and rsvp cards. Let them know your budget, colors, style, information, etc. and they can custom create wedding invitations for your wedding that fits within your budget! Invites range from a dollar each to over 7 dollars each, depending on how intricate you want your invitation to look, how many layers the invitation has, the size, and even the paper style (there is matte, metallic, textured papers).

I know, it can be a bit overwhelming. I am a invitation designer and I have helped many people with their wedding invitations. If you want to drop me an email MyUrbanInvites@gmail.com I can make the whole process a lot easier for you. If you are interested my website is called MyUrbanInvites.com you can order a style that I have already created, or you can email me and I can create custom invites for no extra charge! Also, if you are feeling creative, I sell do-it-yourself paper and you can print them at home! Good luck, and congrats on the engagement!!!
