Every Monday, I have an open question box on my Instagram stories called Ask Me Anything. I love this open time to hang out with my clients and have them ask me anything from wedding stationery, the industry, personal questions, or really anything they want to know.
Here is a recap of the questions asked this week:
Question: How much of your budget should you use for stationery?
It all depends on what’s important to you. If stationery is more important than say flowers or other decor, then you should allocate more of your budget to stationery and vice versa.
With all vendors, you get what you pay for.
My clients typically spend between $500 - $3,500 on invitations only and $1-4k for all stationery.
I received a lot of questions about the above diverse budget, so I went into more details at a later point:
There are so many factors that go into the price of wedding stationery:
Print method - Digital versus letterpress and/or foil stamping. Letterpress and foil invitations are more expensive because of the labor and materials involved. It’s a very hands on process compared to digital printing
What items are included - Invites, RSVP cards, details card, address printing, envelope liners, ribbon, vellum, wax seals, etc. There are endless possibilities.
Other stationery - Save the dates, menus, place cards, programs, thank you cards, signs, table numbers
All of these are influenced by your guest could as well, which I’ve seen range from 20-350 guests.
Long story short, every wedding is very different and every budget is different so talk to me and we can figure out what’s best for you.
Question: How can we work together outside of our wedding?
I also offer bridal and baby shower invites, holiday cards and personal stationery.
Hang out with me next week on Monday on Instagram and ask your questions!
