If you’re a budget-conscious bride, attempting to compare wedding vendors can be like comparing wedding gowns to tuxedos â€“ near impossible! In the wedding industry, pricing policies are by no means standard and in many cases seem designed to confuse. Wedding stationers are no different. While one invitation may at first seem to be the best deal, once you factor in separate costs for reply cards and envelopes, and extra charges for things like printing a return address on an envelope, a once inexpensive wedding invitation can turn into your priciest option.
At The Green Kangaroo, we make sure our prices reflect all of the items a bride will need right from the start so that there are no surprises. But this practice is actually pretty unusual in our industry! Items that TGK includes in the price of nearly all of our invitations (our Frugal Collection is structured slightly differently to deliver even more savings) that most other wedding invitation vendors will most certainly charge extra for are:
1. Customized colors, fonts, and motifs.
2. Matching reply cards.
3. Reply envelopes with the name and address printed on the front in black ink.
4. Outer AND inner envelopes, with your return address printed on the back flap of the outer envelope in black ink.
5. TWO complimentary proofs of each item ordered.
So when you’re shopping for wedding invitations, don’t be beguiled by appealing â€œdiscountâ€ wedding invitations. Be savvy and always be sure you’ve calculated each and every a la carte charge before handing over your Visa card!
