As with anything custom, when something is design specifically for you, it becomes an accurate reflection of you , providing sentimental value.

Due to the nature of custom wedding invitations, all projects will vary in cost. However, the average ElizaGrace Paperie couple spends an average of $4,500 for wedding invitations and $1800 – $2,500 for day-of wedding paper.

In your proposal, you will receive three different pricing packages, starting with a digital only print method. Based on our conversation, I’ll add various upgrades and embellishments for the other two. You are able to mix and match or ala carte other options as your budget allows.

Our average couple spends approximately $1,000 for Save-the-Dates.

A signed contract and a 30% non-refundable retainer are required to secure your spot on my design calendar.

Day-of projects are considered a separate project and must be paid in-full before heading into production.

When you know you want to work with someone who you truly vibe with, it’s never too early to secure your spot on my design calendar. I take a limited number of clients per month and the most popular months like October, September and June book far in advance. If you have decided on a date and your venue is booked, you can schedule a consultation even if it’s more than six months out. A 30% retainer and signed contract is all that’s needed to secure your spot on my design calendar.

A few factors go into determining when to mail your wedding invitations. Ideally, I like to recommend eight to ten weeks out. This accounts for potential delays with the USPS and guests’ response, and any other unexpected circumstances.

If you are having a destination wedding or your wedding lands on a holiday weekend, ten to twelve weeks is ideal. Save-the-dates are highly recommended under these circumstances. It’s always best to give your guests as much notice as possible so they can plan for your wedding in their busy schedule. These should be mailed ten to twelve months before your wedding date.

Plan on one invitation per household. However, adult children over the age of 18 and living at home or adult roommates should receive their own invitation.

It will take me about 2-3 weeks to address 100 envelopes. Also, I require an extra 20% more envelopes because let’s face it, mistakes will happen! And if it’s textured or handmade envelopes, 30% is required.

Throughout the design process, there are many opportunities to check the accuracy of the invitations, guest names/addresses. Names and addresses will be printed as you’ve given them to me. If the mistake is on your behalf, you will be responsible for the reprint. If, however, it is my mistake, I will gladly reprint at no extra cost to you.

Due to the custom nature of all of my work, I do not offer returns or refunds. Due to the handmade nature of products like handmade paper or handwritten calligraphy, no two pieces will be identical.
