Everybody knows it. But nobody’s talking about it. Wedding invitations have gotten pretty crazy expensive these days.
I’m sure you’ve noticed; it is RIDICULOUS what you can end up spending on something as simple as PAPER. It’s like, ungodly. So – what do you do when you’re sensible, meaning you don’t want to blow your budget on invitation paper, BUT- you’d like to be able to send something out to your guests that doesn’t scream that you a) have terrible taste and/or b) are incredibly cheap? Today’s answer is Ann’s Bridal Bargains.
Ann’s Bridal Bargains specializes in discount wedding invitations and accessories that aim to fit a couple’s style and vision for their wedding day. They understand how quickly and easily wedding expenses can add up, and they get that today’s couples are focused on making their wedding day an expression of who they are. They want you to know that it really is possible to stay on budget AND plan a wedding that’s uniquely you.
Now. We may be calling these “cheap wedding invitations” but there’s really nothing cheap about them. Even the most impressive wedding invitation design becomes dull and disappointing if it’s not printed and presented on the right kind of paper – Ann’s Bridal Bargains actually gets this. So you get to select from a bunch of different paper options, and they offer free samples so you can see the things before you purchase them! WINNING! (I’m bringing back winning.)
Here are some selections from their rustic section I thought I’d show you:
You can see more of their rustic invitation selection here (this’ll take you to their site, where you can peep the whole rustic enchilada; for the wider selection view all invites, and other cool stuff).
Invitations are a personal thing. You start out innocently enough wanting to get the perfect invite to fit your party, but then realize that if you’re not making it yourself, you’re likely going to have to spend some crazy amounts of dough to get the things made. Like today I went out to get some invitations for a party for just 20 people and customization was going to bring it to around $100. Think about that. And there are better places to spend crazy dough, you guys. Like on food. Like on photography. Like on cinematography. Like on your dress. If you ask me, it simply doesn’t make sense to spend exorbitant amounts of moola (unless you hit the lottery recently, or come from money, or elaborate costly invitations give you LIFE, or you want to live fast and die young <– the only exceptions) on a piece of paper that people will put on their fridge for a few days before marking your wedding date in their calendars and throwing the piece of paper away (right after they’ve used it to scoop up a dead spider they just swatted – I have done this, I’m sorry).
Invitations serve a specific purpose: informing the recipient of the date of your wedding. Let them be just that.
