Budgeting for your wedding can be tricky and even when you’ve set your budget it can be a challenge sticking to it. Coming in under budget for your wedding is almost unheard of!
In this guide, we are going to show you exactly how to budget for your wedding invitations. You may be surprised by the quality of wedding invitations that are available without breaking the bank. So here’s the big question…
There’s no simple answer but a few factors that affect the cost of your wedding invitations are…
*In this case less is more and mores is less. Sounds confusing right? All this means is the more wedding invitations you order the less each one costs. This is mainly down to savings made when printing more copies at one time. (For a guide on how many invitations you need to order see our blog post here)
Another main factor that will ultimately determine how much your wedding stationery costs will be down to you as a couple and your preferences. This can apply to all the choices you make when planning your wedding.
According to Brides Magazine the average amount that a couple in the UK sets aside for wedding stationery is just under £300.
From experience, we help prepare wedding stationery for couples with varying budgets ranging from £200 to over £2000, it really is up to each individual couple.
For those of you with a budget around £200 an affordable wedding invitation will be from our HD Printed Wedding Invitations.
We only use the finest 300gsm Card Stock and print using High Definition Digital Print Technology to deliver wedding invitations that are unmatched in quality.
Your guests will be suitably impressed and we’re sure you will be too. With matching 130gsm envelopes supplied as standard, your wedding invitations are sure to set the tone for your big day.
So, if you are looking for affordable wedding invitations under £200, HD printed invites are a good place to start.
If you can spend between £300 and £400 on your invites for your special day then letterpress may be the way to go.
Letterpress wedding invitations are a beautiful introduction to any wedding; using a traditional printing technique a deep impression is made in ultra thick 100% cotton card to give a finish that is not only amazing to look at but also feels truly special.
Com Bossa offer the highest quality and most affordable letterpress wedding invitations in the UK, our designs cover a full range of styles including both modern and classic wedding invitations.
If you have a passion for paper and you like a bit of luxury (like us!) then you may want to look ar embossed wedding invitations and foil stamped wedding invitations.
Embossed and foil stamped wedding invitations are the ultimate in refinement and luxury. Announcing your wedding to your guests with the lustre and beauty of an embossed or foil blocked wedding invitation truly shows your intention to celebrate in style.
If you’ve been searching high and low for your perfect wedding invitations and have yet to find ‘the one’ then our bespoke wedding invitation design service is for you. Bespoke wedding invitations can be as simple or as extravagant as you wish.
Having you very own unique design can be affordable too. By working closely with a designer you will be able to create that one of a kind wedding invitation that truly reflects your style, individuality and passion.
We can’t stress this enough. When placing your order always make sure you have ordered a few more than you think you’ll need. If you run out and need just a couple more invitations you’ll find you have to meet minimum order requirements which could be 25-50.

It can often be cost effective to place your wedding stationery order with the one supplier. As well as saving time and ensuring the quality and the design is consistent, you can also benefit from a bulk order discounts by including things like orders of service, table plans, mens and thank you cards.
