So I'm not trying to spend a lot of money on invitations for save the dates or the original invitations at all. Please let me know websites or any other way I can make save the dates and it won't cost me much at all

    You could print them yourself. There's websites that have free templates and let you save as PDF to print.

    Also can look at options online and wait or look for coupons.

    I bought STD from Costco. I bought postcards so postage was less. I just ordered my invites from them too. They are $16.49 per $25. With rsvp and a detail card, it was about $100 for 50.

    I printed out my own STD's (I only needed 40 though and I was able to print 4 to a page) and then I had them cut at FedEx for $2 dollars a cut. As for the invites I made my own on canva.com, maybe a little more work but the website is super user friendly and I use it all the time to make flyers for work, and then I had them printed at walgreens. I had a 50% off coupon so I only spent $16 for 40 5x7 invites and they came with envelopes. I think in total I spent maybe $60 on STDs, invites, and postage (I also hand delivered to the people I saw regularly).

    Vista print and snapfish are super cheap and you can custom make your own with your pictures. It’s easy and professional looking too.

    There’s a website called wedding chicks and they have free changeable templates for whole invitation suites. You input the info and then print it off in your printer. All you’ll need is the card stock.

    We bought a downloadable template off of Etsy, it was only $6 and they look beautiful! We emailed them to keep costs down because we aren't having a very formal wedding and we know none of our guests will be offended. Otherwise we would have only had to spend a few more dollars to print them.

    We did our STD’s on VistaPrint $50 for 50. And when it comes to invitations I’ll probably use them again. They have deals on and off throughout the year.

    I don't know the prices but a friend of mine just gave me a ZOLA pamphlet with a coupon code for 50% off save the dates. (code: LOVE50) I don't know if it works or what but I hope it helps!

    Save the dates aren't required so you can totally skip them altogether or send them digitally.

    I used Vista Print and found 25% and 50% coupon codes online that I applied to the orders which saved me a good amount of money. For the save the dates, invites, rsvp cards, menus and thank cards I spent around $300.

    There are a ton of different websites that offer cheap options for save the dates and wedding invitations. Most websites charge a certain price for a customized card, then multiply that by the number of guests you have, however, you can get deals on the cards if you order a certain number of them, or order both STDs and invitations together.

    Like someone said below, the absolute cheapest way to get save the dates/invitations would be to download free templates and print them yourself, but they will come out cheap if you do it that way. Even though saving money while planning a wedding is a goal for pretty much everyone, there are some things that you don't want to cheap out on, one of those being the stationary.

    We used MagnetStreet for both our save the dates and our wedding invitations and everything came out beautifully. We wanted to be a little more creative and we had some extra money in our budget so we got the save the date magnets that people could stick on their fridge: https://www.magnetstreet.com/shop/save-the-date-magnets
