Inexpensive Wedding Invitations
Looking For Very Cheap Wedding
Invitations That Still Look Good?
Doing some shopping online can be one of the best ways to find inexpensive wedding invitations. If you go to several different websites to compare prices and styles, it is possible to find very cheap wedding invitations that you will like.
Once you've found your ideal
wedding invitations, follow our top wedding invitation tips below for perfect
wedding invitations the first time around.
Make sure that what you see in the wedding
invitation catalogue is really what you get. Order a sample of the
invitation so you can be confident that the size of the invitation
and the color of the paper and font is exactly what you want.
Before you order 300 invitations
with the wrong wedding date on them, triple-check the wording that
you send to the printer. Read over your wording at least three times
and ask a friend to look at it too.
Carefully read over your wedding invitation printing contract. Find out exactly what is included how mistakes are handled.
Be Careful with Papers
If youíre printing your own wedding invitations on an ink-jet
printer, you need to use care when selecting the cardstock youíll
use. For example, itís not a good idea to use invitations with
vellum on them. An ink-jet printer will not print properly on vellum
and youíll end up with a smudgy mess on your wedding invitations.
Get the Timing Right
You should order your wedding invitations about three months in advance of your wedding date. Invitations should be mailed out roughly eight weeks before the wedding, but also take into consideration the kind of wedding youíre having.
If youíre having a smaller wedding with just close friends and family, you can send out invitations about six weeks before the wedding. If your wedding is in an exotic location, is a destination wedding, or you have many out-of-town guests, send your wedding invitations out ten or more weeks prior to the wedding date so guests can make travel arrangements.
Anticipate with Extras
When you address your wedding invitation
envelopes, you will no doubt make some mistakes. Anticipate some
errors in advance by ordering some extra envelopes with your
wedding invitations. Also, when the responses start coming in,
youíll get some regrets. Extra wedding invitations will allow you to
invite a few more people to your wedding that didnít quite make
the original wedding guest list. We wontí tell if you wonít!
