At Wouldn't it be Lovely, it's important to us that everything be as straightforward as possible while still giving you unlimited options so that you end up with a design you love and pricing that you can understand! When it comes to design and pricing, you have two routes, custom or personalized. A custom design means we're creating something completely new and unique just for you. A personalized design means we're starting with an existing design you've seen on the website but personalizing it to make it a perfect fit for you and your wedding. Read on for more details about your options and costs.
TYPICAL PRICE RANGE
To give you some ballpark pricing, a set of 100 save the dates can run between $400 and $2000 depending on the design, materials and addressing, with the most popular options typically coming in between $700 and $1000 total. A set of 100 invitations typically runs between $650 and $4000 depending on the design, materials and addressing, with the most popular options coming in between $1000 and $2000. Due of the custom and personalized attention given to every design, the minimum costs of any set of invitations or save the dates (regardless of quantities) is $300 for save the dates and $500 for invitations.
With Custom Designs there are no limits to your design! From custom watercolors, calligraphy, and hand lettering, to metallic foil, letterpress printing, hand made paper, custom die cut shapes and more. You may not know exactly what you want, but we'll work together to put together all the elements to get you to your perfect design. You are not charged by the hour or per proof or for samples of materials as we believe that you shouldn't worry about making edits or asking to see something a different way. For custom designs, there is a flat design fee and the price of your invitations. The design fee is determined by quantity and the design style and typically ranges between $250 and $600 added onto the final cost of the invitations. Check out some of the standard formats below to get an idea of pricing for some of the most popular form your custom design may take. Don't hesitate to contact me with details about what you're imagining so I can send along some preliminary pricing!
A Personalized Design starts with a design that Wouldn't it be Lovely has already created. We start with an existing design and then change elements to make it the perfect fit for you. The general design language and fonts stay the same, but personalized designs are still heavily customizable, you can change wording, papers, envelope or belly band materials, colors (in most instances, with some watercolor illustrations the colors cannot be changed), you can add or change insert cards and layouts. You can add or remove treatments like foil depending on your budget. You can change the format (see below for more format and layout options). If you like parts from one and pieces from another we can often mix and match to make a perfect design for you. There is no design fee for personalized designs unless you need less than 70 sets. Contact me with all the details about what you'd like your design to be so I can send along some preliminary pricing.
