Consider Costs: The price per invite can vary widely—anywhere from $1 to more than $100. It all depends on the design, ink, typeface, printing process, paper and quantity. Top-of-the-line papers, color ink, formal printing techniques (like letterpress and engraving) and custom design will add to your costs, as will decorative extras like envelope liners and multiple enclosures. That's why it's important to research your options ahead of time, so you can pick your priorities, whether it's sophisticated printing and a custom design or multiple enclosures. Also, if you're planning to hire a calligrapher, look into the cost (think: $2 to $8 per envelope) at the same time you're choosing your invitations, so you can account for it in your stationery budget.
The ‘who’ of the invite, consists of the names of the people invited to the engagement party. ‘What’, refers to the type of eventparty that they are invited to, (here, engagement). ‘When’ refers to the date and time of the engagement. ‘Where’ is the venue for the event, (which should be held in a place where the number of invited folks can be easily accommodated without clustering). The ‘why’ in the invite could be optional, as it isn’t necessary to add it, but in case you’re planning to add that, then, you can write something like, "because you’re special to us and we’d appreciate your presence".
Count Your Households: You don't need an invitation for every guest. Take a look at your guest list and figure out how many houses need invitations before you give your stationer a number—you might be able to cut your order in half. Cohabiting couples get one invitation; for couples living apart, you can either send one invite to the guest you're closer with (and include both names on the inner and outer envelopes), or you can send out separate invitations. Families get one invitation (addressed to "The Smith Family," for example). The exceptions: Children who don't live at home (like college students) or anyone over 18 who lives at home should get their own invitation.
What Should I Write? (Your brain is probably screaming the above words at you… more like throwing it like a pair of high heels on your face.) When it comes right down to the engagement invitation wording, please try not to get stressed. This will take a bad turn and will spoil the way your engagement invitation reads. Writing is not a daunting task at all. It is definitely not similar to pushing a lazy-thristy-donkey up a hill and to make it drink water. It is more akin to finding the elephant in foggy room; you only need to feel around to find it. Always remember that according to the type of couple, the invitation card’s content changes to replicate the mindset. Keep in mind to add a hint of you and your significant other’s personality.
