How to save money on your wedding invitations without compromising luxury

As we all know, weddings can be expensive. However, the trick to budgeting your wedding is all in the details. Here are a few of my top tips on how to save money on wedding invitations.

1. Pre-designed collections

Pre-designed wedding invitations are often cheaper because they do not require customization. This allows the invites to be produced more efficiently and at a lower cost. Custom invitations, on the other hand, require more time and effort to create, resulting in a higher price point.

2. Printing digitally rather than special types of printing

Digital printing is generally cheaper than letterpress and foil printing because it does not require the creation of physical plates or dies, which can be expensive to produce. With digital printing, the image is simply transferred onto the printing surface directly from a digital file, which eliminates the need for this additional step and therefore reduces costs. Additionally, digital printing allows for smaller print runs, which can also lower the overall cost.

3. Ordering stationery together to save on printing and delivery costs

Ordering stationery together can save on printing and delivery costs because it allows for economies of scale. When you order in bulk, you can often get better prices with suppliers and manufacturers. Additionally, shipping costs can be reduced when items are shipped together rather than separately.

4. The higher the quantity, the lower the costs

The cost per invitation typically decreases the more you order. Additionally, ordering all of your invitations at once can save on shipping costs and reduce the need for multiple orders, which can also save money in the long run.

5 . Sending out digital save the dates

Sending out digital save the dates is cheaper because it eliminates the cost of printing, paper, and postage. It also allows for easier and faster distribution to a larger number of recipients. Additionally, it's more environmentally friendly since it avoids the waste of physical materials.

6. Online RSVP's

Online RSVP's are often cheaper than paper RSVP's because they eliminate the cost of printing, postage, and processing. Additionally, online RSVP's require less manual labor, which reduces labor costs. This makes them a more cost-effective option for event planners.

7. Source embellishments and assemble yourself

Sourcing your own wedding invite embellishments and assembling them yourself can be cheaper because you are not paying for the labor and markup costs that a professional invitation company would charge. Additionally, buying materials in bulk or using items you already have can also save you money. However, it can be more time-consuming and may require additional effort on your part.
