When it was time to get the wedding invitations done, I had a dilemma I could either save cost and use the Invitations provided by the hotel’s vendor or spend a sum to get a nicer non-traditional invitation made. I went with the latter because having a church wedding meant that I would need 2 invitations for 2 different venues.
I wasn’t satisfied with the invitation cards the hotel provided and the fact of adding an additional simple graphic would cost me $10. I felt it was very templated and I wasn’t too crazy about a super red invitation although it was cultural and auspicious.
Printing wedding mass booklets – I began my search online and contacted a few local artists and vendors the price range was usually $1000.00 for 300 cards plus design work. Some companies don’t even bother replying to my enquiry while others patiently answer my questions. I also approached a printing shop named Print and Repair, they introduced me to https://www.greetingsisland.com/ where there were many beautiful designs that you could use for free with their watermark behind the card. I used this site for the covers of my church booklets for a fee of $30.00 the alignments of the text were adjusted by page for me the total cost of 70 booklets was only $121.00 with glossy paper. They even sent me a video clip of the completed booklet being flipped to check if all was in order. I highly recommend https://printrepair.sg/ for its excellent service and quality printing.

I was given Envelopes, stickers, ribbons and 3 printed sheets for the invitations to slot into the card; I found the invitation beautiful and nonconventional. It came in lovely burgundy flowers and a pink envelope. Yes… my relatives advised me to stick with the colour red but at least it was not in a shocking red colour. The invitation was printed on semi-sparkly paper adding a touch of glisten to the card. They even provided double-sided tape for me to stick the invitation on the side of the open card. What I love most was the option to slot in the church invitation slip for guests who I would be inviting to my wedding ceremony. I also liked the fact that they gave you the flexibility to add additional pages for my church invitation slipped I wanted it to have blue flowers instead of the red ones which came in the burgundy set.
I highly recommend Doris Home as a wedding supplier for invitation cards, images, all in all, it only cost me SGD $450.00, inclusive of the envelopes which some vendors don’t even provide.
