I know, right now you cannot believe how expensive it is to get married. You did not plan for the expenses that are adding up so quickly. The dress, the tuxedo, the rings, the food…yes, it all adds up to big money. |
It is time to figure out how to save some of that money, and put it towards something just as important, if not more so. How can one plan for the wedding of their dreams, without breaking the bank? It is not as hard as you might imagine.
Let’s discuss the wedding invitation cards. You have gone to all the wedding stores and inquired about the purchase of these. They have a wide selection of designs, but not quite what you had in mind. There are ways to get the design you want, make it an extravagant invitation that looks like you spent a fortune on them, yet they might only be pennies on the dollar.
I am a frugal person by nature. I will find a way to get by as cheap as possible without losing the quality or perfection that I desire. When it was time for us to purchase wedding invitations for my daughter and her soon to be, I balked at the cost of the invitations.
We sat down together and decided what it was that they wanted their invitation to look like. We checked out the online options of ordering these invitations and determined that although this was a much better price range, one we could afford if we choose these, but, I wanted to check out the cost of personally designing and making the invitations.
By designing the invitations ourselves, they would be about the same cost as the online printing options, but these would be as unique as we wanted them to be. They would stand out above others and make friends and family wonder where we found them.
Many computers have an office program that allows them to design papers, letterheads and other items such as invitations. We checked this out on the computer, found the design we liked and bought the blank invitations from our local discount shopping center. We bought a couple extra inks for the computer and we got to work.
Whether you choose to have the same invitation as many others, or design and print out the invitations yourself, you will be able to have the invitation you choose, and save a lot of money by buying online through these printing companies or by doing them yourself. This also brings the group together for quality family time, saves you money for the honeymoon or saving for the purchase of your first home.
It is not as hard as one would think, and the invitations will be as unique as the couple is themselves.
