Who knew pretty paper could get so expensive?! Are you spending extra on upgrades like envelope liners, engraving, and custom calligraphy? Or saving your money on something that gets quickly tossed in the trash! Are you splurging or saving on your wedding invitations? 馃拰 Photo by Sara Bishop...

    I'm waiting for that good save! I'm getting our invites from Zazzle and they have continuous deals so I got my eye on the costs.

    I'm going to splurge a little on invitations. If nothing else, I figure that I will keep my invitation and I want to enjoy having it and looking at it. The food will be gone, the flowers will die off, all I'm really going to have left is the pictures and the invitation.

    Save. I feel like no one really cares about the invites. I know I usually toss them aside at some point.

    Saved, we used walmarts photo center and because we ended up not ordering them sooner to get the card stock invitations we just went with the regular photo paper style but they still turned out pretty nice

    We are splurging by having suites made by a local company. Wanted something a little unique and to fit our theme. Not too much more than we were going to spend at Minted.com

    We saved on these because they will get thrown away. Ordered ours through Zazzle with a coupon .

    Save. We went through Minted and did not do many details cards. Our RSVP card provided the link to our website as well as alternate methods (email and phone). Skipped the inner envelope and liners too. 馃槄

    Save. The invitations usually end up in the trash soon afterwards.

    Save. I never really found ones I was crazy about, so I just ordered the ones I liked best when they were 50% off.

    Save, We originally bought some on clearance from hobby lobby that we both liked for $11 but our photographer offered to make us some with our engagement pics for cheap.
