Inexpensive Wedding Invitations That Look Anything But


Purple Plum Floral from Dreaming in Paper

Wedding invitations, actually the stationery for the entire event, can do some damage to a couple’s budget. But, if the homework is done beforehand, lovebirds can have some of the most beautiful designs that don’t break the bank or break their vision for a sophisticated event filled with intricate details and quality products.

Some say that it’s okay to skimp out on the invites but if you want a memorable wedding day, you can’t nix or shorten your standard for the first piece of the party your guests will get their hands on. This is where your themes, your colors, the tone, the style is displayed first. This is truly the first impression your loved ones will receive of the main event, it’s important to make it count.

Thankfully, there are invitations out there that are inexpensive but don’t look like they’re been printed, cut, and stuffed at home in our craft room. Not that DIYing is inexpensive or can’t come across as refined, but, let’s face it, not all of us have those kinds of skills.
