Cheap Wedding Invitations – 14 Ways to Save Money on Wedding Invitations
Skip the Upgrades – You don't need the envelope liner and fancy ink or even the intricate details.
Pick the Right Paper – Skip the fancy papers and used partially recycled paper and save money! There are tons of color choices too.
Order Extras – Spend a bit up front to save money on the last minute ones that would cost more to order later.
Skip the Map – Enclosing a map and even other directions can cost you money. Get a Free Wedding Website and put all your maps and directions a website and include the URL on the invitation.
Skip the invitations – Go modern and use an Evite service and only have a few invitations printed for those who don't do technology like grandma and grandpa.
One Instead of Two – Don't print your reception info on a separate card, print it all on one to save money.
Skip the Self Addressed Stamped Envelope – Have your guests RSVP via your website or by phone.
Proof Read x5 – Proof read your invitations, have your maid of honor proof read and a few family members and friends. If there is a mistake, you either have to live with it or have it all printed again which will double your invitation costs.
Print Your Self – You can buy wedding invitation kits and print them yourself at home. You can get 100 invitations for under $20 for basic ones. You can get more fancy ones in sets of 25 as well.
Hand Address – Skip the fancy writing for addressing your cards. Enlist the help of family and friends and hand address them yourself!
Avoid Odds Sizes – Avoid odd size envelopes, like squares, they cost more to mail!
Use Coupons – Use Discount Wedding Invitation Sites and use coupon codes to get sales and deals on your order. Plus designing them yourself will save you money and give you a customized look.
Skip Traditional – Go for something like picture invitations. You can create a great look for free on PicMonkey or Canva and then use a site like York Photo to print them out for just 4¢ a print! You can see some of my favorite picture wedding invitations on Pinterest HERE and HERE.
Get Cashback – Remember when you shop online for wedding items (and even in store!) use Ebates for cashback. They even have special wedding cashback offers!

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
