How to save money on Wedding Invitations

It is advisable to look at different printers online or go to a stationery or department store. You can do your research online and find out your nearest stationers to where you live.
If you buy in bulk you will find it will save you money and always ask about other discounts which may well be available.
If you are having a low key affair laser printing is adequate for making a cheaper invitation. If it is a black tie affair you may want to go for thermographic printing which produces a lovely result but is more expensive. We used to use embossed wedding invitations in the past as that was the fashion which gave a very elegant look.
If you are trying to keep the cost down don't use many layers of paper or bows and lace as that will add to the final cost.
Remember to add all the relevant information to the invitation such as names, date, time, venue and RSVP. If you make a mistake after the invitations have gone to print a reprint is chargeable.
If you decide to make the wedding invitations yourself you can afford to choose good paper and envelopes. It is also possible to purchase your own DIY kit which includes everything you need to make inexpensive invitations yourself.
You may be able to find someone you know to help with the design of the invite and also if you know anyone who writes beautifully it will give the invitations a more elegant look.
Always print spare invites in case you want to invite some last moment guests.
Nowadays online invitations are different to the normal wedding invites. They are becoming more popular as a favourable and cost effective way and being environmentally friendly too.
