    We are looking at making our invites soon and just wondered should we make extra ( just in case needed) and if so how many? I'm trying to price up what I need so I can get in and order it all but don't want to order and then have to re order bits if I can help it. So how many spares would you recommend? For day and night? x

    I'm only making about 5 extra for the day - only because the guest list has already been pretty much confirmed and if there was anyone to drop out it would only be about 2/3 invitations!

    Evening wise I haven't even worked out the list yet let alone the invites! lol I would probably go 10 extra just in case! theres always going to be some that don't come and my venue have said their happy if I over invite I'm just not paying any extra for the food lol xx

    Like Elizabeth I made about 10 extra for the day and glad I did as we had quite a few cancellations and had a reserve list of people who are now coming to during the day.

    Don't forget if inviting couples and families they only need one invitation per couple/family, not one per person.

    Thanks Hun, have done that and worked out we need 30 ( I think without looking at paperwork) but not sure if I should do 35 or 40? X

    I'd do 40 to account for spelling mistakes as well as spares for bump ups x
