Shopping for wedding invitations can be a little overwhelming which is why not a lot of couples think outside the traditional wedding invitation box but if you have the courage to do something different, we’ll teach you how to save on wedding invitations and still get the fabulous invites you love!

Secret #1. Format matters.

This is actually one of the best-kept secrets in shopping for affordable wedding invitations. No matter where you shop, you will likely find a few different wedding invitation formats. You’re probably very familiar with the typical flat card or maybe you’ve received some pretty pocket invites but there is so much more out there!

Here at Ann’s Bridal Bargains, we focus heavily on designing efficient invitation formats to save our customers money. Seal and Sends Wedding Invitations is one of our most popular formats. Check out our blog post on Types of Cheap Wedding Invitations to see our top three formats!

Secret #2. Free is possible.

A typical wedding invitation ensemble includes an invitation, a response card and a reception card. Did you know we offer the response card for free? Not only do we offer free response cards with lots of our wedding invitations, they’re actually response postcards so you save money on postage!

Secret #3. You can cut things.

Let’s take another look at that typical wedding invitation ensemble: invitation + response card + reception card. Guess what? You can cut that reception card. It’s often not needed. Most of the wedding invitations we sell either offer the reception card for free or we have designed the invitation to include room for your reception wording. Smart design is key!

Secret #4. Shop early for discounts.

Sign up for emails a year or more before your wedding and start scoping out the sales that come through. When you see a whopper of a sale that makes your dream wedding invitation a reality, pounce on it like a cat on a laser pointer! Those sales are no joke.

Secret #5. Always order up.

Always order more wedding invitations than you think you need. Same for envelopes. Why? Because ordering another 25 or 50 more is WAY more expensive than just adding to your original order. So create as accurate of a guest list as you can and then order more wedding invitations to accommodate any oops moments you may have.

Bonus Tip: Proofread, proofread, proofread.

Reorders can be VERY spendy and they’re often the result of simple typos and misspellings. We highly recommend reading 15 Common Mistakes to Avoid on Your Wedding Invitations before personalizing your wedding invitations AND we recommend sending the proof to a few different people. The more eyes the better!
