When most couples getting married hear the words wedding invitation, two things come to mind expensive and hassle. While there are some types of wedding invitations that can be expensive and sometimes without proper planning, ordering can be a hassle, remember that this is not necessarily the case.

Without a doubt, weddings are expensive, but knowing what to look for and how to plan makes all the difference. Instead of a miserable experience leading up to your special day, you can enjoy the entire process, including the ordering of invitations. Keep in mind that wedding invitations are a tangible item. In other words, you can lay your eyes and hands on the product before you sending it out. This allows you time to ensure your invitations are exactly what you want, being the perfect reflection of your wedding.

You want to set aside between 2% and 5% of your entire wedding budget for your invitations. Although you can spend more or less, this is a good guideline to follow. This cost includes more than just the actual invitation. It also includes the inner and outer envelopes, response cards, reception cards, tissue for the inside, and postage. If you want to accessorize your invitations by adding ribbon or trinkets to the interior, or sealing the envelop flap with colored wax and a special seal, you might want to increase your budget by 1%.

The majority of the wedding invitation expense will go toward the type of paper chosen, design, and printing method. For example, if you choose plain white paper, a semi-formal design with only one side on the interior printed, and a standard printing style, you will pay much less than if you chose parchment paper, both sides on the interior printed, and calligraphy.

To save on this one expense, you can do several things that will help. For starters, when visiting your local art supply, stationary, or bridal shop, ask about overstock or last seasons invitations to see if something may fit your wedding needs. Typically, when you run into this type of situation, you can secure a great discount. You should also check the Internet for discount companies, which can be found by the hundreds. Another option for reducing the cost of your wedding invitations is to make them yourselves.

No matter what option you choose, do remember that this is the first announcement that people will receive in regards to your upcoming wedding. You want it to look beautiful and reflect you and your future spouses style. To do this, you do not have to spend a fortune, just be prepared. Start about six to eight months outside the wedding date so you have ample time to find the best bargains.
