About Wedding Invitations
Your wedding is a big deal, which is why so many brides obsess over every little detail from the dress down to the fonts used on the invitations. Wedding invitations set the tone for the big day, so if you're going for a formal, black tie affair look or something on the beach and casual, remember style is everything. An invitation can be as simple as a single postcard or have multiple layers and inserts. Like most purchases, added features and colors increase the price of the invitations. The amount of money you have to spend on invitations can help you determine which type of wedding invitation is best for you. The most affordable option for those who want custom invitations is to buy a kit from a stationary or office supply store. These are great for small weddings and couples who have time to spend personalizing invitations. Some kits include embellishments and attachments, but you should also browse bridal magazines and websites for other creative ideas. If you're really crafty, you can make invitations from scratch. With this option, brides need a list of supplies and quantities prior to going shopping. If you love the handmade look and don't have the time, but you do have the money, consider hiring a wedding invitation designer to make yours. No matter where you order from, remember wedding invitation costs can quickly add up. Colored, such as pink wedding invitations or lined invitation envelopes are more expensive than plain white invitations and envelopes. Each layer and foil accent can add up quickly. With so many options to choose from or create on your own, brides can get the wedding invitations they need at an affordable price.
