Wedding Invitations and Wedding Stationery on a Budget - Keeping Costs Down

Below are some top tips on how to reduce your costs and keep to your  allocated wedding budget when it comes to your stationery order:

Choose and place the order for the invitations at least 6 months in advance. Ordering the invitations at the last minute can be stressful, not to mention the worry of not getting your guests to respond in time. Stick to your wedding timeline guide and order the invitations early!  This is particularly important if you haven’t sent out save the date cards.

Order extra invitations with your original stationery order. Bulk orders at one time will cost you less than having to get extras made later down the line. You will save money on the postage and packaging costs.  Ordering extra wedding stationery will also allow for you to invite extra guests should you receive any regrets.

Place your stationery order with one wedding supplier. Not only will this save you time, but it will also guarantee that you’ll be getting the exact same colour match and design when it comes to your place cards, order of service cards, menus or thank you cards.

How about doing away with the response cards completely? Consider adding an email address to your wedding invitations so that your guests can all respond digitally, or add a phone number for text acceptances and regrets.   Invitation House have a large range of designs which enable you to include the RSVP details and, therefore, helps you to save money by negating the need for separate cards.

Proof read your wedding invitation thoroughly. You don't want to have to pay out again for the re-printing of your order.
