How to Save Money on Wedding Invitations


It’s no secret that getting married is an expensive affair. From catering to wedding attire, invites, venue, and band hire, and catering, there are a mountain of costs to consider. This is doubly true when getting married for the second time, as these costs are painfully obvious from the experience of your first wedding. And while this doesn’t mean you should take anything away from your special day. it does mean you can plan prudently to save money during certain steps of the wedding process. For example, wedding invitations.

Forgo the Save the Dates and Destination Wedding Invites

Save the date, an official wedding invitation, and destination wedding invites – these three pieces of card are traditional when it comes to providing information about various aspects of your wedding. But you can save a decent amount of money by eschewing the first and last of these and instead investing your time and money into designing a more beautiful wedding invitation. If you’re worried that your guests won’t be informed far enough in advance, you can either email a save the date or send the official wedding invite out a few months earlier than planned (providing you have the venue sorted).

Minimalist Wedding Invites

Wedding invites can take on some very complex and innovative designs, but they don’t have to be overly complicated. In fact, according to Brit.co, minimalist weddings are gaining popularity among those preparing to say their vows. Stripped back and featuring only the essentials but without sacrificing on taste, having minimalist wedding invites designed is an ingenious way of saving money while making a statement. Whether it’s a two-tone card or a natural palette, a minimalist invite adds flair without being excessive. Don’t forget to consider the envelopes, too. When it comes to minimalism, a crisp white or cream envelope, widely available on printing shops like Saxoprint, ensures a simple, clean but effective way to package your invitations.

Electronic Wedding Invites

The last option is to ditch the idea of a physical invitation sent by snail mail altogether. After all, we’re living in a digital age where everyone has access to a laptop or mobile device, and an email address. Sending an electronic wedding invitation will save a ton of time, effort and money when it comes to printing costs and logistics. It makes even more sense when you consider that some of your guests might be traveling from different countries, and physical wedding invitations could take a considerable amount of time to reach them. Instead you could hire a graphic designer or use a digital wedding invitation company to design a custom and contemporary invitation that is easily shared with your entire guest list.
