If you’re trying to keep your wedding costs down while still having a lovely event, you’ll need some ingenuity and originality. There are various creative ways to spread the word about your big day. You don’t have to spend a fortune, either.
If your budget is tight, there is no need for a great wedding invitation with gold leaf, laser cutting, and hand calligraphy. Below you’ll find some of our best advice for creating and shipping your wedding invitations at a reasonable cost.
· Go Digital:
Sending wedding invites through email is a good alternative if you’re on a budget and want to save money. It isn’t just that internet wedding invitations cost less, but they are also handier for you and your guests. A traditional wedding invitation would often consist of several elements, such as an envelope, an insert, and a variety of other materials, in addition to the printing and postal charges.
· Avoid Engraving and Embossing:
The most expensive and most time-consuming printing method is engraving. Even though it’s an attractive and formal option, thermography is an excellent alternative. This solution is cheaper than engraving, yet it has a similar appearance. Embossed accents are an additional expense, so don’t bother with them.
· Shop Savvy:
Retailers such as craft and department stores should carry a wide range of specialty cardstock in stock. You may save a lot of money by buying online for your papers. You can find excellent deals and online coupons that aren’t available in stores. The back of your invitation should be the color you want, so buy colored card stock in that color and cut it to the size of the invitation envelopes you wish to use.
· Use a simple envelope:
Envelopes and envelope liners are just as important as the invitation itself for budget wedding invitations. The envelope is where you should make the most drastic reductions in terms of decorative aspects. It is more likely that the contents of the envelope will pique the interest of the wedding guest. Once the envelope is opened, guests are likely to toss it in the trash. Envelopes with no decorative embellishments are a good option if you’re looking for a clean look. This will save you a lot of money that you may use for other aspects of the wedding.
· Start early Looking and deals:
If you order your invitations as far in advance as feasible, you’ll ease stress and save money. As a time-saving measure, this is excellent advice. But it is also a smart idea in terms of saving money.
The sooner you start shopping for invitations, the better the bargains you’ll find. Just keep them until you’re ready to send them off! In addition, you’ll have plenty of time to assemble and mail them.
