With all of the expense that goes into planning a wedding, discount wedding invitations can help you save a little money. After all, purchasing the perfect wedding dress, ordering a special wedding cake, and planning a great wedding reception will take a big chunk out of your wedding budget. Why not find a way to cut a few corners and save a few pennies if possible!
One of the simplest ways is to create your own. You don’t have to be a great artist or even really creative to come up with some wonderful invitations.
There are simple computer programs that you use to create invitations of all types. You can purchase card stock paper in a variety of colors, and you don’t even have to have a special program to create a beautiful card. Play with the word processing program on your computer, changing font styles, size, and colors until you find something you like. Once you’ve created the card you like, you can print the copies yourself or have them printed at a local print shop.
Obviously, if you are inviting several hundred guests, this may not be a feasible option unless you enlist the help of several others, but creating a handmade wedding invitation can add a personal touch to your wedding celebration. Look for items you already have on hand, such as acorns, small pinecones, leaves, berries, shells, ribbons, etc. Either computer generate or hand write the wording on card stock paper, and decorate with whatever you have handy.
With so many wonderful clip art sites on the Internet, you can find virtually any type of picture you need, and some of them may even be free! You can add clip art designs to your discount wedding invitations, create the card you like the best, then take it to a local print shop and order as many copies as you need.
If you just don’t feel that crafty, don’t worry. There are plenty of places to purchase discount wedding invitations. Be sure and check your local shops for clearance sales and discount prices, but don’t forget to look online as well. Many of these sites offer further discounts for the more cards that you order.
