Budget Breakdown: The Invitations

I spent a lot of time with this in excel, but in order to paste it properly I had to make a screenshot of the spreadsheet.

I am very happy with the amount of money I spent on the invitations overall. I tried to gauge what the actual cost per invitation was for me including all factors, so I hope this is helpful for anyone else looking to DIY their invitations. I thought it was sooo worth it, but this was an important piece to me (read: i was a little OCD/wedding inspired) and I had lots of help.
This project was worth it to me--and I realize I could've spent a lot less (or a lot more!) on them. I saved where I felt I could (family design help and no reply card envelope), and splurged (the pocketfold and postage for it)

Please let me know if you have any questions--I'd be happy to answer them!

(oh, the one thing I forgot was $6 for the graphics we used, via

Man, I never totaled up what my invites cost to make. I think I came out ahead, but it would be interesting to see for sure. Great job! They turned out beautiful!

You know, I tried to post my breakdown too and had a horrid time with the formatting. I think I'll do a screen shot too. Thanks for sharing this! I've been doing a lot of cost breakdowns in excel. Sometimes i have to "step away from the budget" as it tends to drive me crazy!

Just saw the outcome and came back to how much it all cost you... wow! You did awesome and for a reasonable price! Great job!
