One question that we usually get asked regarding Indian Wedding Cards is how many invitation cards will I need? We have often heard stories whereby people are looking to invite a total of 200 guests, yet they also end up ordering 200 invitation cards. One aspect that is often forgotten is that many guests that you will be inviting are part of the same family (usually between 4-6 family members). On the other hand, when it comes to friends and colleagues, you will often be inviting a single member. The best way to work out how many invitation cards that you need in total would be to find out the total number of people you will be inviting then divide this number by 3.
So for example, if you were to invite 240 people in total, you would need between 80 - 90 cards on average. This number is to give you a rough estimate. If you were going to be inviting more friends and colleagues (sending them an invitation for a single guest) then the number of invitation cards could even exceed 140.
To ensure minimal wastage (which also means money saving), try and work with an invitation company who are flexible when it comes to re-ordering (if needed).
At CardFusion, we will work closely with you to ensure minimal wastage. We would ask you to provide us with the minimal number of invitation cards that you require. As you are sending the invitation cards to your guests and receiving RSVP's back from them, if you then needed an extra 10, 20, 30 etc cards from us, we would be able to print the additional cards for you, at the same agreed original price. The last thing that we want is for you to have a batch of unused invitation cards after your function has finished.
