How much do invitations cost?
Cost is always a factor when it comes to planning a wedding. As your pinterest board grows the details start to add up.
Studio Eighty Seven clients have budgeted $700 – $2,000 for custom wedding invitations. This includes a one-of-kind custom design, design services, paper, envelopes, printing and postage. Here at Studio Eighty Seven we believe in being transparent about these costs so there are no surprises.
Printing and production variables make it hard to pinpoint an exact cost. Letterpress, foil, magnets, accessories, etc. all add up; however, it is our goal to deliver a high-quality product no matter the production process or starting budget. We’ll work with you to insure you are comfortable with both the design, the quality and the price from start to finish.
Bespoke wedding invitations are an investment, but like the photos you’ll cherish from your wedding day, they are a physical, tangible relick from this very special time.

When do I send invitations out?
Traditional etiquette rules advise invitations be sent out 8-10 weeks before the event. While we hate to live and die by these rules, 8 weeks gives your guests plenty of time to make arrangements for travel, lodging, child care, etc. Special exceptions should be considered for destination weddings and seasonal locations. For example, if you get married on Cape Cod between May and September it is in your guests’ best interest to book their lodging as soon as possible as vacancies on the Cape can be hard to come by at that time.
What information should you include on the invitation versus on the website?
What you choose to communicate to your guests is entirely up to you. Studio Eighty Seven will ask questions and make suggestions along the way to help you make decisions. We like to remind clients of their guests who may not be tech-savvy. Will your great-aunt be able to get onto your wedding site to find suggested lodging locations? Could she rsvp digitally? That said, sometimes directing guests to your website can help cut printing costs.
Does Studio Eighty Seven create favors? Table Numbers? Programs?
We would be honored to help you with anything you need for your wedding. We have created table numbers, escort cards, snapchat filters, websites, ceremony programs, etc.
