How do you cut down on stationery costs? I would love to do them myself but I am not very creative...
We did our invites on vistaprint during their up to 60% off sale.
We did ours from Pinterest free downloads
I got mine from Aldi on the special buys and then I’ve just made my own extra bits on the computer and printed them. Worth keeping an eye out at places you wouldn’t normally expect to have wedding things. The range is also quite good for stocking reasonably priced wedding stuff x
I used it for our RSVP cards and our invites loads of great designs and can personalise them x
If your okay with a completely plain invite, poundland has some, but hobbycraft is okay as well can get a complete stationary set so rsvp, save the dates, invites and paper insert plus the envolopes for around 26 quid contains 25
I second vistaprint - wait til they have a sale on. Our invites looked quite good and only worked out about 50p each I think?
Vistaprint always have discounts on
Just bought some card and printed them ourselves. They look professional (I think).
Look at occasionsbyrebecca online, she did ours and we loved them. Very reasonable. Also place names and table numbers.
I used a mixture of eBay we had postcard invites, Aldi for place cards,I did the order of service
We used hobby crafts and then just printed some bits on the computer so was just a case of putting them together.. guest loved the theme and the personal touches to them xx
Vistaprint for me. But I work at a wedding venue and a lot of couples are now doing email invites. You can track the RSVPs easily this way too....
Hey can provide a pdf design that you can print of at home for £10 xx
I used Nottingham printing who designed and made all of our wedding stationary. I sent over pictures for ideas and the altered things until we had a design that I loved. Invites (65) rsvp (65) cards, menus (7), table numbers (10) seating plans and order of service (75) all cost me around £100. Definitely recommend x
I designed ours on photoshop, then printed them at moo.com as postcards which makes them cheaper. We had a wedding website that guests could use to rsvp so we didn’t have to send out rsvp cards either. I bought blank pearlised place cards from the Range and handwrote all the names in a fancy font, took a while but I think they looked good!
I ordered a sample of a few I liked on eBay then used one of them as a guide and made my own!! Cost me £87 to make Instead of £300 to buy!! xxx
I got mine from hobbycraft. I assume they are getting a new ranges because I got everything at 75% off
I bought the blank cards from the range printed on to them. The invite included all info including directions. Also included the RSVP card which also had the menu choices etc on it too. Saved a fortune doing it this way!
I used dotty about paper website
I got these from card factory and added the pearls and flower
Card factory do them, you could get a set of wedding themed craft stickers to personalise
I made my own save the date and invites myself using ebay for blank cards and my printer.
I went to the works and bought some love heart chalk stands for £1. Whole lot cost £25 x
I used Vista print. Uploaded my own image so they would be totally unique. I couldn't get an RSVP that I liked so got from eBay. Saved a fortune.
Got from Aldi for like 15 for 50
Zazzle have lots of designs or just plain invites that you can fully design yourself. Done all my invites, RSVP, general information for less than £90 and i have 35 of each. All come with envelopes too x
Do you have any creativd friends or family. Visit hobbycraft they have all sorts of stuff and it may help for some inspiration. I intend to make my own but i make cards all the time.
Paperbliss do amazing DIY kits, Im not that creative but really enjoyed making them and got loads of great feedback. Under £120 for 102 invites. This included the invite, directions, accommodation info, RSVP envelopes and a personalised belly band for the folder everything went in. You print them at home but there are templates to use on their website.
There's some lovely stuff on Etsy which isn't expensive
Look, if I can do it, you can do it. We designed them on Word (I can send you the template if you want), printed them on our normal printer but on textured paper, cut them with a guillotine I bought on amazon for £14 and used glue dots to stick them to plain card. We experimented with fonts that we downloaded for free from some website. I added a little gem on the top. Total materials cost us about £40 to make around 120 invites. Just try it, start somewhere and see where you get to.
I just had 2 separate invites for day and evening guests. All the inserts, I did myself and luckily my work let me print them. I got mine through NotOnTheHighStreet.com and it cost me £75 for 55 invites (which included a little gem stone). I also made my order of service too. I was on a tight budget too. I used wish.com for little extras if you can accommodate 6-8 weeks delivery. Well worth it though for the savings you can make.
Vista print do some great offers or you can buy invites from places like Aldi and Paperchse x
Poundland did a range of wedding stationery last year, would be worth a look
Skip invites etc and make a wedding website!
Sign up for free, add any pages you want. Has a count down, people can refer to all details such as menu, accommodation near by. Plus you can monitor your numbers and meal choices so easily! Very easy to use set up.
Add photo journey pages, stag and hen info... it’s amazing!!! Highly recommend. For those not on internet, it’s easy enough to call and change/add manually to guest list!
Go on Vistaprint or go on Microsoft Word and see if you can find a good background layout to match your wedding invitations. You'll save a lot of money that way! :)
im making mine got everything from hobbycraft and ebay only thing is I wish I had more of a plan because i had a couple of hiccups but making them is special and you get what you want xx
