Quality But Inexpensive Wedding Invitations
Planning an elegant wedding on a budget can be a challenge. After all, you don't want to sacrifice quality to save money. One area to examine for ways to trim costs is the wedding invitation. Although wedding invitations can be very expensive, there are many options available today for the budget-savvy couple.
Explore All of Your Invitation Options
Don't limit your choices to party and stationery stores. There are other not so obvious places including Kinkos, Staples, and other office supply stores that sell invitations as well as stores like Costco. Mail-order catalogs and the Internet often offer the same invitations for half the cost. Be sure to order samples before you buy.
Go With Simple, Classic Invitations
Another other option is the classic, simple invitation printed on high-quality paper. To cut costs, avoid the lined envelope as well as the second envelope. Most people won't notice that your invitation envelope is not lined, and the need for a second envelope is not nearly as necessary today with the much improved mail handling. Having no reception card and simply printing the reception location and time at the bottom of the invitation will also help trim costs. You can create an insert with a map and additional reception details yourself. A postcard RSVP rather than folded card and envelope will also save postage costs as well as your total invitation costs.
