Keep It Simple
If you opt to send a traditional wedding invitation it is important to keep it simple so you can keep costs down.
Don't order invitations through a bridal store….unless you want to spend a ton of money.
Create a simple invitation without a bunch of folds, layers, etc. A flat one-page invitation will be MUCH more inexpensive. Who needs 3 envelopes and a tiny piece of tissue paper anyway??
Don't forget to use coupon codes and Ebates to save even more money!
Use a Standard Envelope Size
Many people forget about the cost to MAIL the invitations! Postage is expensive and if you create a wedding invitation that takes a larger envelope you will pay dearly for that postage!
When you are creating your budget friendly wedding invitation, make sure it can be mailed with ONE STAMP!
Skip the Save the Date Card
The whole “save the date” concept really annoys me. I guess that if I was the queen of Sheba…then maybe I would expect people to SAVE my wedding date on their calendars months in advance! 🙂
I am not the queen of anything but my own little world…so I know that if people can make the wedding…they can make the wedding!
A big way to save BUCKS is to skip the whole save the date card. You will save on the cards themselves…and mailing the cards!
If you really, really want to get your big day on the calendars of all your friends and family…do an email save the date invitation for free!
