Weddings can be very expensive. This is the reason why it is important for you to try to save money whenever you can. One of the best ways to save money on your wedding preparations is to make an inexpensive wedding invitation. Invitations can be costly since you need to print out several copies for all of your guests. The paper used and the printing can be expensive. Fortunately, there is a way for you to save money on your wedding invites.
One way to save money is to make your own cheap invitations for your wedding. Cheap does not necessarily mean poor quality or tacky. With a little creativity and ingenuity, you can create an invitation that looks professionally-made for a fraction of the price. You can even create something that looks much better than those expensive and formal-looking invitations if you are really talented.
Below are some useful tips on how you can make an inexpensive wedding invitation.
- You should find cheap wedding stationery in the stationery shop or online. Choose something that has wedding prints such as hearts, wedding rings, bouquet, and other kinds of prints. You might also want to buy scented stationery to make the invites more romantic.
- For the print, you can hand write the details on the stationery. That is if you can write good calligraphy. If not, you can always ask a friend who can do it for you for free. This makes the invitation more personal and look like antique. Use a good quality pen or a felt-tip pen when writing down the details on your invitations. Ask your friend to do this in advance because he or she needs to write several invitations.
- You can also use an old-fashioned typewriter instead of handwriting your inexpensive wedding invitation. This is easier and faster and just as cheap. This also creates an engraved look to your invitations.
- We printed our wedding invitations on our computer, this is the simplest method but it may take a while to find a font you are happy with. I spent over a week online looking at free fonts before finding one that I really liked and decided to use for the invitations.
