I always cringe a little when I see wedding blogs that list that the bride and groom spent $100 on their wedding stationery. What?!
While it may be true that a bride only spent $100 on her invitations, you most likely aren’t going to see photos of gorgeous paper goods crafted with thought and care. If there are any photos included, you can quickly see the quality, craftsmanship and thought put into the stationery is lacking. Unfortunately, these types of price breakdowns along with the endless gorgeous stationery images floating around Pinterest are giving brides unrealistic expectations about what they should expect to budget!
If you’ve landed on our website, chances are you aren’t that bride. You LOVE paper, you swoon over the little details (vintage stamps, letterpress, foil… yes!!), and you understand the cohesiveness that stationery can bring to your big day.
Today, I want to share a quick worksheet that will help you set a realistic budget for your wedding invitations and stationery. The worksheet will help you discover how much to budget by calculating the number of guests you are inviting times a specific price/invitation based on your wedding style (and how much a priority stationery is to you!).
