Save Money With Affordable Wedding Invitations

Sep 5, 2008
There are a number of different ways to invite people to your wedding. At one point in time people would announce their engagement to the congregation at church and then simply offer an open invitation to anyone wishing to come. This made things very difficult as it was hard to keep track of who was coming to the wedding or not. Today, when people wish to invite a person to their wedding them usually send them a formal written invitation. In this invitation they will find a reply card that they fill in and return to the bride and groom. Purchasing formal wedding invitations can be extremely expensive and people are often looking for affordable wedding invitations. There are a number of different ways that you can invite people to your wedding and there are a number of ways that you can have great wedding invitations at an affordable price.

One of the easiest ways to find cheap or affordable invitations to your wedding is to shop at discount stores. Due to the fact that the wedding industry is a billion dollar a year industry more and more businesses are trying to get in on the action. This means that people are stocking wedding supplies no matter what they look like because they know someone will buy them and invitations are no different. Most dollar stores today are offering packages of simple invitations to customers for about twenty dollars a package. These invitations however are blank and the verse must be created and printed on the invitations by the bride and groom themselves. This may seem like a hassle but it is a great way to save money.

Another industry which is growing in popularity is the scrapbooking industry and part of that includes card making. Card making can be turned into invitation making and it possible to get everything you need to make your invitations at a scrapbooking store. Here you can find all the paper you need quickly and easily. Brides often think that they won know what kind of invitation to make and it may be hard, but simple invitations can be just as appealing as expensive elaborate invitations. There are also magazines available that show sample invitations and also tell you how to make them, step by step. It is here that you can enlist the help from your friends to create the perfect wedding invitations.

People often mistakenly assume that each wedding invitations must include a reply card and a stamped envelope so that it can retuned. However, if you are looking for more affordable options then you might simply state on the invitation that people be able to reply to the wedding through email or phone. This saves you and your guests the trouble of sending the reply cards and you are still able to find out how many people are planning to attend your wedding. There is also the option of simply emailing a simple invitation to your guests inviting them your wedding and a simple reply to the email saying you will or will not attend is all that is needed. This is great if the wedding is small but if you are planning a large wedding then you might want to consider mailing out paper invitations but the email response is still appropriate.
