It Depends

Ok, hear us out. Overall, we think wedding invitations are essential for giving your guests all of your wedding information, leaving a great first impression for your wedding, and giving you and your guests a keepsake to treasure forever (at least for the people that do keep them). If you're really set on not investing too much of your wedding budget in invitations, here's a way to work around them.

Send Digital Invitations

Your guests need some form of invitation to know about your wedding. If you're not sending them a Facebook invite and want to send more than a plain text, consider an evite.

Forget Save the Dates

A great way to cut costs is to forget save the dates and only send physical invitations to the wedding! If you still want to send save the dates, try sending digital save the dates. We have some great digital save the dates in our template shop!
