You can spend as much or as little as you want.
I have seen people do digital only basically making it free.
We are using we website, so still sending out paper invites but rather than loads of extra bits of paper, all info will be on the website.
I am also going to make mine with a friend to save on costs that way too xx

I got mine from amazon. 50 day and 25 evening was about £10. I had to write them all out but I’d rather that than spend more for printing them. I don’t see the point in spending loads, As long as all the info is on there! They get thrown in the bin after anyway

It's 1 per couple or family, anyone aged over 18 but still in their family home needs an invitation of their own, 1 per single person as well. That helps you work out how many you actually need. I suggest Zazzles, they have a great range and can fit any budget. I've bought birthday invites from here before and the quality was amazing

Have a look on Amazon to get some ideas. There is quite a variety. I got 50 of each for £30 and they are personalised but only one page. Then I have created an email account just for the wedding and will then send out all extra info via that.

Templates on there... designed own invites, guest info and rsvp. Just need to buy card and ink

I’ve put a spreadsheet together and grouped people together so I know that a couple only need 1 invite.

Have a look round, pure invitation are fab, they create the invite but there’s a cheaper option for you to assemble.

I think to purchase an invite ready made you’re looking at about £3-7 depending on design.

To make one yourself? Depending on design anywhere between £0.50 - £3.

Have a look at Vista print, their just printed but they can look so effective for a cheaper price.

I made ours the place I saw them wanted $16 each plus shipping to the UK. I watched a YouTube video showing me how to fold them, ordered the paper and for 100 invitations I was around £300 including printing. I ended up adding a navy stripe ribbon as well on the belly band

We had our designs for day and evening done by a friend it was 40 for both got a friend who is a professional to print 75 for £12 with envelopes and a few stamps (don't need to many sent) it's gonna be around £70 to be honest we are lucky we have mates that can I've us mates rates ,looking online I couldn't believe how expensive invites are ,I know I sound like a cheep skate but I think even the £70 we 're paying is more then I expected I would rather pay more money out on our day

I hand made all my own invites.buying the blank cards and all the bits I needed.i then printed out the saved a lot of money but it does take time to make! I made the invites as small packs containing the invitation (day or evening) along with the service or day, rsvp, and hotel information/directions. Each pack cost approx 80p each to make.
Makeing them isn’t for everyone but it’s an option!
