Determining Your Stationery Budget

Before you can start creation of your dream event stationery package, you first need to determine a budget. If you're doing a low-key, family oriented event, you usually want to get away with spending as little as possible (so DIY would be the best option for you). For important events like weddings, most people figure on 3% of their total budget to go towards their stationery.

So that means on the average $26,232.00 brides spend on their weddings in the United States, $786.95 would normally be budgeted for stationery.

Considering how in most wedding magazines save the dates showcased average anywhere from $500-$1,000 for 100 (cards and envelopes) and invitations cost sometimes double that, it's no surprise majority of brides go the DIY route and make invitations and stationery themselves. However, with the right tricks up your sleeve, it's easy to make an invitation that is designed just like the fancy ones you see in the magazines. Trick is you save money on printing, assembly and paper stock in efforts to afford a good designer.
