Wedding Budget Tip #42:
Consider DIYing your wedding invitations.
If there's one thing we LOVE to help brides with, it's finding ways to save money. One of the simplest ways to cut costs is by doing things yourself, and a super doable DIY project is your wedding invites! Here at BSB, we've got dozens of free printables for you to download and customize yourself. If you're unable to find free templates that work for the style you're going for, consider some paid template options. You get the benefit of a professional looking design without the high price tag. There are so many options available for brides looking for high-end design at an affordable price!
We've got our own exclusive collection of premium template designs with our friends at Download & Print that are super affordable and come with everything you'll need to customize your wedding day with paper. For $49 plus the cost of ink and paper, you can easily DIY your wedding invites and much, much more with nothing more than your home computer and printer. (Or if you're not interested in printing them yourself, check out what we consider the best place to print your DIY wedding invites.) Best of all, the $49 price gets you access to ALL of their wedding templates, so you can enjoy them and use them for anything you want beyond the wedding day. You know, when you have to return the favor and be a shower hostess for one of your bridesmaids!
Our printable invites have been so incredibly well-received because they give you luxurious designer quality for a steal! They are customizable with the help of Microsoft word, and all you'll need is a ream of paper, a printer, paper cutter and envelopes to bring it all together!
Paper is an inexpensive way in general to personalize your big day. With a little effort and our fab templates, you can make an incredibly cohesive and branded wedding day!
Our wedding invitation templates aren't the only ones available out there. Here are a few more great sources for DIY Wedding Invitation Printables:
