On party invites and thank yous. £10 for 8 of each .

Then don't spend that much money

I don't know why anyone would spend that much (possibly wedding invites - can't remember how much we paid for them) but you certainly don't have to, so buy them somewhere else.

Crazy money. Some people have more of it than sense.

What a waste of money.

But each to their own.

£10 for 16 items? not that crazy?

You can't understand why anyone would pay as much as 63p a card? confused

Just for a regular party? That is quite a lot.

This coming from the woman who wanted to send wedding invitations costing £7 each before DH gave me a good shake until my head was dislodged from my arse. grin

They were beautiful though.

I just didn't realise they cost that much. These are for sale on a facebook general sellers page so in effect they are 2nd hand although unopened of course.

I paid £45 for 30 invatations for DS's party, I don't think it's UR at all. It is a personal choice.

Depends how nice they are....

I always do mine on the laptop.

People spend much more - it doesn't seem particularly excessive to me although I wouldn't spend that much.

ParadiseChick Sat 22-Jun-13 16:49:21

You could spend fuck all or £12 an invite. Who cares?

IsThisAGoodIdea Sat 22-Jun-13 16:50:59

I would, if I really liked them. I spent a couple of quid on each of my DS's christening invitations. It was a special occasion, they were beautiful and the £40 it set me back did not leave us short.

What kind of invites are they?

If they are bog standard invites that you buy in a pack from Sainsbury, then yes, that is crazy.

However, if they are hand made, individually crafted invites then that's actually quite cheap.

Personally, I really couldn't give a toss.

£45 for 30 invites? where they musical? did they read the invite to you.. did they magically turn into icecream..

im really intrigued to what they looked like.

If you can afford it why not? Hate the competitive element though

candygirl78 Sat 22-Jun-13 17:12:29

They were character ones so not all that special in my opinion.

edwardsmum11 Sat 22-Jun-13 17:14:00

60p ain't that much tbh.

CloudsAndTrees Sat 22-Jun-13 17:49:36

I'm surprised that you are are surprised.

That's nothing for fancy invitations, but it completely depends what these are.

You could post a link to them so we can judge properly. wink

candygirl78 Sat 22-Jun-13 18:00:13

They were just the sort you might get from party people. Quite nice but nothing amazing. Not personalised or specially printed.

marriedinwhiteagain Sat 22-Jun-13 18:14:35

It doesn't sound that outrageous to me but mine ar 18 and 15 now and I remember thinking how expensive the invites were all those years ago. think I always did stingy party bags to make up for it

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 22-Jun-13 19:35:15

Eternal did you really? shock 45 pounds!! For 30 child's party invitations??

Gapes. Why were they special? Were they gorgeous?

LondonBus Sat 22-Jun-13 19:37:29

Because they really like them.

And I sometimes wonder why people send such crappy cheap invitations.
