Why Does It Cost This Much?

Postage rates are determined by the U.S. postal service, so the number of invitations you have, and the weight, size and shape of your invitation envelopes, will determine your cost in this sector. If you have internationally-based guests, you will need to affix the proper postage to get their invitation to them.

And, of course, if you skip the essential step of getting one sample invitation's inner and outer envelopes weighed at the post office, you could incur double the cost for a re-send of your invitations.

We're also seeing additional invitations mailed out, such as invitations for far-off friends to be your bridesmaids, complete with a shipped box of gifts for each, and invitations to the rehearsal dinner and other events, which will increase your amount of postage needed.
