Hi ! Just wondering if anyone had any advice or cheap suppliers for wedding invites?? Also what's the difference in save the dates and an actual invite?

I am making my own invited to try to make it cheaper. The save the dates literally just say keep this date free as we are getting married and are sent out a lot earlier than actual invites. The invites give all the information needed for the wedding eg place, time, hotels etc. You dont need to send save the dates if you dont want to. x

You generally send a save the date card out a few months before the invite so your guests have it in their diary in advance. There's lots of invites on e bay, amazon and other websites at reasonable prices or if you're creative you could make your own xx

I am making my own invites to keep the cost down (making 70 invites, information cards and rsvp card for just over £30 total) I brought 50 save the date fridge magnets off an eBay shop for £16.00, and some do some good prices on invitations too. Save the Date goes out first to advise guests of your wedding date so they can keep the date free. Then your invitations are sent later (generally no later than 3 months before the wedding) which has all the details about venue, timings etc

I brought my save the dates from ebay. 30 for £20. I'm getting them so my day guest have plenty of time to book the day off and book into hotels around the area If needed. :)

I made my own. We have people coming from all over the world so we sent save the dates to make sure they didn’t book anything on that day and they also had time to save and plan to come over. Invites will go out once we know all the details about timing and food options etc
