Yes the words beautiful and cheap can be used in the same sentence, when you’re in the planning stages of organizing a wedding. If you aren’t comfortable spending a large sum of money on wedding invites and would rather save your funds for your wedding ceremony, reception or honeymoon, you’ve definitely come to the right place. As listed below are a few options for gorgeous yet cheap wedding invitations that will still impress your loved ones.
Portrait focused wedding invitations:
If you like minimalist wedding invitations, simply make the main focus of your invitations a large photo of yourself with your soon to be spouse. For example, you may want to opt for a photo from your wedding proposal or your engagement party or a photo from one of your first dates together. The choice is yours. To make your wedding invitations look a lot more expensive than they are simply turn your chosen photo into a black and white copy as black and white photos are instantly a lot more sophisticated and classy than regular photos.
Black and gold:
Whether you like the idea of a glamorous vintage inspired Great Gatsby styled wedding or you plan to get married on New Year’s eve, you may want to opt for basic black wedding invitations that boast striking gold text as your wedding card design. If you opt for this particular option you won’t have to worry about including any photos, images or embellishments as gold text on a simple black background is effortlessly chic. While you can choose to get a professional company to print black and gold invitations for you, if you have tidy handwriting you may want to use a fine tip gold calligraphy pen in order to hand draw text onto black cardboard, in order to make your own DIY invitations.
Seasonal inspired wedding invitations:
You may want to use the season that your wedding will take place in as inspiration for your wedding cards. For example, if your big day is set to take place in spring you may want to use sunflowers as motifs for your cards. While if you plan to celebrate your special day during winter, you may want to have snowflakes laser cut into your invitations. Alternatively, if you plan on exchanging your vows on the beach in summer, you may want to take inspiration from seashells or waves in order to add a bit of flair to your wedding cards or invites.
Origami style wedding invitations:
If you are crafty and enjoy arts and crafts projects you may want to opt for 3D origami wedding invitations. For instance you may want to attach origami artwork to the top of each wedding invitation. Such as origami swans or hearts. If you do opt for this idea, make sure to send your wedding invites to your friends and family in cheap boxes that will ensure that your origami art doesn’t get squashed.
So if you don’t want to spend a crazy amount on wedding invites, you don’t have to in order to receive lovely, attention grabbing invitations that you’ll be proud to send to your loved ones.
