Hey Can anyone give me some hints or tips on how to cut costs on wedding invites? I would also need to include the menu/information/rsvps. And in regards to menu choices how are you getting this information back? Are you having it on a separate bit of card or are you having it on a RSVP? Many thanks
You could design and print yourself, or if you know anyone who does graphic design/art?
Try looking at wedding websites, these are free to set up and you can have all your info on there meaning you only need to send out one piece of paper not loads :) xxx
We did ours, but had they printed by printed.com
I've put the address information on the back of the invites, and the menu on the rsvp. Didn't put the whole dish, only "beef, chicken or vegetarian". It worked pretty well.
Hey I charge in bulk so works out cheaper for my clients.. Check out my page for more items xx
Design and print your own. My friend just copied a design I’d seen online and it only cost about £40 for 80 card invites and envelopes. You have the option of adding RSVPs, menu options and thank you cards
Vistaprint and they often run promotions
Optimal print are always having 50% off invites ect and they are really nice, that's where I'm ordering mine from :)
set up an event on fb where people can respond to and receive info saves loads and then may only need to send out a few to the older generation that doesn’t use social media
Definitely eBay! They can change up any writing on it. We had a full pack (menu, extra info, rsvp) including envelopes. Then we put on our address and contact details as it was easier for most people to email or text us their choices x
I bought these from paper chase- and remember you don’t need an invite for every guest, couples families etc go on one invite- cost us £30 odd for all the invites.
Got great deal on bride and groom web site regarding invites and reply cards cost £70 including addressed envelopes then found these menu cards on e bay only paid about £10 for 60 x
Use a website to put all the additional info on so you're not using too much material. There's loads of free ones you can use that are really good. I used wix.com
We done it all online, worked great and we got info back quickly.
Plus it's free!!
We used Zazzle for our Save the date cards & will use them for invites etc x
I bought card from the range and did my own invited and RSVP which included menu options for those who where attending. I saved hundreds this way x
I made ours on vista print. Made them on leaflets but did them as wedding invites. Cost under £17 for 50
Make your own! xx
We got ours from all place Aldi! 200 piece box, 25 invites, spare cards and envelopes, 25 save the date cards, 25 rsvp cards all with envelopes and 25 stickers to stick down the invite envelopes! £12.99! Came in 2 colours & I’m sure I’ve seen them reduced in our local one too (gutted lol) x
Try contemporary card company, we’ve had all out invites and orders of service off there, really recommend them, they were made, dispatched and delivered within 3 days and the quality was lovely! You can find them on the website, Facebook or they have an eBay site xx
To cut my costs I'm only sending them to people who don't do social media. I've set event of fbk and invited and regarding menus sending in messenger.
Know it may seem tight but every penny counts and can be used on something else.
I made these using word. I had 3 different cards - main invite, information and RSVP. I then printed onto good quality card and cut them. Finally I used ribbon to gold together. It cost about £20 all in!
Vista print! Saved me they do invites really nice ones and they cost next to nothing the quality is really good too xx
I did all of mine on vista print. So easy to use and cheap! you can print 2 sided so I put information on the back of the invite and had the food choices on the RSVPs xx
we paid £60 for 80 invitations on ebay and just handed them out to people when we saw them. we only had to post afew! we never bothered including menus which was going to be another £60! though we did ask when they rsvp to let us know if they had any dietry requirements! we put our mobile numbers on the invitations so people could text or call their rsvp! for evening only guests i setup a group on facebook with all the details and people can just click going or not going!
Were going to have an email address to send the rsvps and menu choices to rather than wait for the post to arrive.
I used a website called getting married.co.uk and you can design your own website for free and just send passwords to yours guests to rsvp x
We had our menu options on the rsvp card, people put their initials next to their choices
Card factory website has an amazing and cheap range that can all be personalised with multibuy savings
I used printed.com 100% recommend their card stock is really good and you can get a wedding sample pack from their site
I bought everything in the sale! £2.50 for 50 blank cards and envelopes and £2 for 20 sheets of glitter card for the middle. Not quite finished yet but its cost me less than a fiver so far!!
Vista print for invites
I bought a pre-designed editable template on Etsy for I think £17 then edited it for my invites, menus, RSVP, pretty much everything. Brown Kraft card and cream envelopes cost me a couple of quid on eBay. Printed at work (with permission!) then held everything together with little copper paperclips. Everything came under £25 and they looked great.
We used vista print. Good quality and reasonably priced. Just don’t order too many like I did.
Zazzle designed myself and was cheaper than quotes I had. Took some time. But really happy with them.
I wouldn't put the menu etc in the invites as I think that's just a waste of money and encourages guests to then start asking for changes to meals etc at your expense. we will be asking about allergies and dietary requirements/restrictions but other than that will be printing day and evening invites and we will hand ours out in person as much as possible to save on postage costs etc. I've noticed that most people prefer not to pay postage to RSVP and just like email or mobile so we'll just put something on the invites that will RSVP contact details. This will save more money as we wobt be buying invite bundles. I've found invites ones on zazzle.co.uk which can be personalized and come with their own envelopes etc and they are £30 for 50, so we will probably be going down that route. I'm not really crafty enough to make my own invites and am only doing the flowers/bouquets. Best of luck
I got my save the dates from amazon and intend to get my invites too from there.
