It's very important to know how many guests will be attending your wedding, so make sure to leave enough time to get back those RSVP cards early. A standard rule of thumb is to order 10% more extra envelopes than you think you may need. This will come in handy if your calligrapher accidentally makes a mistake while addressing the invitations. Save a few extra invitations to keep as mementos for yourself and close relatives.
Extra folds (tri_fold is more expensive than bi_fold) incur higher per_invitation costs, as well as lining on the envelopes. The way in which invitations are printed play the biggest factor in the cost. Digital printing is the most budget_friendly option, then thermography, and then letterpress. The most expensive option is engraving. Outer envelopes, reply cards and envelopes are typically included in standard wedding invitations.
