Our budget is really small and I’m looking for suggestions for the most cost effective invitations. We’re only inviting like 50 people so if I did them myself it wouldn’t be TOO bad but any suggestions would be helpful ❤️

    I'd look at Hobby Lobby, Walmart & Michael's. They have wedding sections & usually sell invite packages so you can just print on those yourself, and they usually go on sale! Also, sign up for Zazzle & Vista Print email list so you can keep track of their sales. I ordered our invites during a 50% off sale on Zazzle.

    Where are you located? There are some small boutiques that are extremely reasonable with their prices.

    I used Vistaprint - 50% off and free shipping. Check around for promo codes for anything you buy. Hobby Lobby does 50% off their wedding stuff about every other week as well. You'd just have to find what you wanted, put it in your cart and see which is the cheapest option.

    I used Ann's Bridal Bargains - price was unbeatable. It was cheaper to order from them than it was to go to a craft store and get some or to DIY. Seriously!

    Shutterfly is what I've been using for save the dates and rehearsal dinner invites. If you order from their app you can get great deals and free invites. They range from 1.50 - 3.00 per invite and you can add photos.

    I had a friend that used Ann’s Bridal Bargains and had a great experience with them! Spent less than $200 for invitations for 340 guests (not invitations).

    I second the Michael's invites! They have beautiful designs and you print them at home. They sell them in boxes of 25 too which may be enough for you and probably around $20-$30.

    We are about to send out our Save The Dates. We used GreetingsIsland.com, which is free! Purchased card stock paper and printed at home with our colored printer. Card stock paper was about $6 and the ink cartridge was about $19. You can print multiple per page. I used the paper cutter at work during my lunch hour. We could have just used scissors, but the paper cutter was faster and cleaner! And envelopes were less than $5. Postage is probably going to be the worse part! But we plan on only mailing it to older guest who do not use technology lol. Everyone else we can hand deliver or email it to them! We are having 100 guest.

    Zazzle is having a sale right now and you can sign up for a free trial of their rewards program with free shipping. I got my STDs from magnetstreet.com and invites from Vistaprint! Both very affordable!

    Evites, Facebook event page, even text are options that I've seen. If you want paper invites print at home and hand deliver, do website, email, or text RSVPs. People hate sending RSVPs as much as we hate to pay for the postage. Tech savvy options are so much more simple and convenient. Just make sure that you have a good system to coordinate the RSVPs

    I used Appy couple and I love it! You can sent the invites out from the app and you get a wedding website. It looks professional and not cheap. I have a few older guests and they felt it was easy to use. It costs $49 but it was worth it. If you look through the discussions I’ve started, I wrote a review with screenshots from my website, if you’re interested.

    We found our perfect invitation on Shutterfly. And at 50% off. And with a discount code. We got married in an observatory and this was the back of the invite. A similar style on a wedding site was 5x the price.

    I got mine from Walgreens! It sounds boring and cheesy but they had a good selection and the only way I can tell mine is from there is there is a small “w” on the back bottom of the card. they come with envelopes as well! I got 65 for like $35!

    We did Vistaprint. For 60 invitations + 60 envelopes and 50 RSVP cards + 50 envelopes, we spent about $65 total. I got them on a 50% off sale, but just had to pay for shipping. Then we printed the addresses directly onto the envelope at home, and wax stamped all the invites. Pretty easy!

    I am doing my own wedding invitations. I suggest doing it maybe on word, but just invest in some good paper to print on.
