Weddings can be expensive, this comes as no surprise. For most people, paying for a wedding ends up as the single most expensive day of the rest of their lives. With the money needed to have a nice wedding, it’s helpful to find ways to cut down on costs wherever possible. Wedding invitation cards are a great place to cut down on costs, especially seeing as you may be sending out several hundred of them to your guests.
When it comes to saving money with wedding invitation cards, there are a few measures you can take to help cut back and save some dough. Start by shopping around and comparing prices wherever you can. Many stores have stationary sections that offer invitations in bulk at decent prices, but you’ll want to take the time to see if one store is offering the same amount at a lesser price or is offering a discount or a clearance price.
Of course many people would rather just print their own wedding invitations but this makes things even more expensive than if you were to buy wedding invitation cards already made. If you do decide to print off your own and have them personally engraved, weigh your options when it comes to printing techniques. Invitations and announcements with raised font are going to be more costly, for example, than font that isn’t raised. Paper costs vary greatly as well.
Decide if you want to have simply invitations or fancy invitations with extra add on pieces such as bows and beads or extra layers in tissue and paper. Though these additions can be really fun, keep in mind that heavier invitations are going to cost more to cover the postage and that can really add up if you plan on mailing out hundreds of announcements.
Of course one of the simplest ways to make sure you save on your wedding invitations and announcements is to just be careful. Make sure that if you do decide to print out your invitations yourself that you take the time to proofread each and every line for one hundred percent accuracy. Make sure you have the date and time right, the location spelled correctly and that everything is properly aligned. If there’s a mistake and you end up printing hundreds of invites out only to notice the error later, you’ll either have to send out invitations with grammar or spelling errors are start all over again with money down the drain! Simply take a few minutes and read and re-read over the wording before you print anything off.
