Stationaries which contained the details of an event like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries etc would always make any ocassion feel proper. Invitations or invites as some would call it, is composed of a set of specialized paper or craft that is personally designed and created to include the necessary details to suit the preferred theme of an upcoming event. While majority would hire a supplier to do their wedding invites, some still prefer to do it on their own. A lot of DIY tutorials are available online so soon-to-be couples wouldn’t find it hard to do what they have in mind, plus add the fact that if you’re in Manila – National Bookstore and Divisoria will be your new best friend!

But for those who prefer to let the expert do their wedding invites, just like in our case since we don’t have enough time to do so unfortunately, we shortlisted a couple of suppliers to do it for us. Majority of them have FB accounts so its easy to check their recent work even though were doing it overseas, but as we get to know it further — invites price range would largely depend on the following: materials to be used, complexity of the design, number of invites to be ordered (some have minimum orders), package style type if there is any, timeframe, printing method to be used, add-ons like misalette/monograms/thank you cards and yes.. reputation. Invites price range can start as low as Php 40 to Php 500 ++ per piece! Oh yes such exists just like that invite design we encountered that we really like but costs a whopping Php 460/piece because it is made out of imported paper and swarovski crystals as part of the design!

We learned that once you get to book the major suppliers, the rest will just follow. This post is a follow-up from Our Wedding Preps Timeline 2015 that you can find HERE. 🙂

JANUARY 2016
(11 months before the BIG day)

After coming back from my vacation to personally do the ocular for the Church, Reception, Hotel, appointment with my Couturier etc, we’re back on track in ticking off the suppliers that we just booked last year and those that needed our attention. And yes, this will be quite a hefty list since the minor details seemed to need the utmost attention for now.
