8 Ways To Save Money On Your Wedding Invitations

You’re planning a Wedding, so you’ll know first hand just how much all those little extras that only cost a few extra pounds here and there can quickly begin to add up! So I thought I’d share with you my tips on how to save some money on your Wedding Invitations…

1. PREPARE, PLAN & PREPARE SOME MORE

I know you’re juggling a lot of different tasks that you probably have very little clue about, but gathering just a little bit of information before you start ordering your Wedding Invitations can really save you time, energy and money!

Key questions to ask yourself before ordering are:

  • What elements do I need in my Invitation Suite?
  • Do I want to go for pre-designed or Bespoke/Custom?
  • What’s my budget?
  • Do I want/need to send Save the Dates?
  • How many Invitations do I need?
  • Do I need Evening Invites?
  • When do I want my guests to receive them?
  • Will I go for the same colour as my colour scheme or totally different?
  • What print style do I want?

2. KNOW YOUR BUDGET

It’s very difficult to save money on your Wedding Invitations if you don’t even have a budget!

If you haven’t already you reeeeeeeeeeeeally need to set a budget, that way it’ll be easier to stick to it!

3. DO NOT ORDER 1 INVITATION PER GUEST

This is probably one of the top mistakes many Brides tend to make when ordering their Wedding Invitations because they tend to give me their guest numbers and think in terms of 1 invitation per guest…

However!

Think again!

Not every guest needs their very own Invitation – think families, think couples…

By thinking about how many actual Wedding Invitations you need, I’ve probably saved you hundreds right there!

4. ORDER AN EXTRA 10%

This goes for Invitations, Envelopes and your Stationery Elements!

It’s way cheaper to order extras when placing your initial order than it is to get re-prints.

In fact…

You may even find that if you need less than 10, that you can’t even re-order as many pre-designed Wedding Stationers minimum order quantities.

You might not think it, but you’ll need extras for:

  • Any guests you forgot to invite…
  • Any Invitations that get lost in the post…
  • Saving some for keepsakes…
  • Sending one to your Photographer to photograph for your album…

Also don’t forget to ask your Invitation Designer whether or not they provide you with spare envelopes… as you’ll need these for any mistakes you make when addressing.

5. ORDER A SAMPLE

I actually can’t stress how important it is to order samples.

Because one persons’ idea of quality, may not necessarily be the same as yours.

It’s always best to see and feel the quality before you place an order…

You also need to ensure that you’ll receive a PDF proof via email for ALL the elements in your Wedding Invitation Suite BEFORE it goes to print!

I’ve had a number of Brides who have come to me after they’ve ordered their Save the Dates and the quality wasn’t as expected and even more Brides that have come to after having already paid for their Invites and not liked them…

Please don’t let this be you!

6. ORDER PRE-DESIGNED INSTEAD OF BESPOKE OR CUSTOM

This is quite obvious, but ordering anything off the rack is cheaper than having something custom designed for you.

If spending tons on your Wedding Invitations is not for you, then go pre-designed there are so many beautiful designs out there that finding something that fits your style and budget will not be hard at all!

7. TRIPPPLE CHECK FOR ERRORS

**Sigh!

I.

Hate.

To.

See.

Spelling.

Errors.

On.

Invitations!

Spelling errors actually make me anxious at the best of times, but on an Invitation **more sighs**

Because a simple spell check can generally alleviate that, and a good Wedding Stationer will run a spell check as standard,

because once you’ve approved your final design to go to print, the responsibility for any errors and reprints will lie on you!

So always make you sure you print and read through your proofs before approving anything to go to print.

I’d even go as far as to ask a few of your family and friends to proof read it for you…

Just to be sure sure!

8. CHOOSE THE RIGHT WEDDING STATIONER

This goes without saying!

But choosing a good Wedding Stationer can be easier said than done, but I’d say as a minimum when browsing websites please ensure they spell STATIONERY correctly.

For the purposes that we want, it should be spelt with an “E” NOT an “A”!

Also check that their site is not littered with spelling errors.

Because what you’ll find is that many Graphic Designers turn their hand to designing Wedding Stationery with little knowledge of Wedding Invitation wording etiquette, which means that whilst your Wedding Invitation may look lovely, it may not read too well.

So there you have it!
