Additional Fees __ Save_the_date cards are great way to keep invited guests from making other plans. But they are an extra expense to consider. Be sure to factor in postage when setting budget for wedding invitations, especially if you have a large guest list. If your invitation is larger, heavier, or oddly shaped, then it will usually require more than the standard postage. When calculating postage, do not forget to factor in the cost of stamps for your reply cards.
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.
