How to Really $ave on Invitations?

by | May 21, 2021 | Invitations

Weddings are expensive! Since couples are determined to stay on budget, most will have to compromise on something! So, how can you actually save on invitations while planning the day of your dreams?

Doing it yourself (DIY) is often assumed to be a reasonable solution to save money on invitations.   In reality, a DIY Bride must be crafty, artsy, and love the challenge of making something completely on her own.  Since most brides are busy professionals their DIY efforts will usually look unprofessional and amateurish. So what other options are there to minimize the cost of invitations?

Brides have been led to believe that ordering invitations online is easy and economical. Be aware that online vendors entice you with misleading pricing tactics that end up costing you much more than planned. Most importantly, any mistakes or errors with the finished product fall solely on you. There is no actual person to resolve your problem(s). Believe us when we tell you that We have helped many brides after disastrous online experiences.

You probably spend $3.00 or more to purchase a pre-printed birthday card or Mother’s Day card. So why do you resist spending that amount on a multi piece custom printed wedding invitation?  Remember that this is the most important day of your life, and you have a gorgeous dress, venue and ring; you certainly need an invitation that compliments the tone you are dreaming of.  The invitation is the actual preview of your special day; it sets the mood of what is to come. Your guests can often determine their attire for your event from the invitation. How do you want them to feel and dress when they attend your wedding?

The truth is that a local stationer can actually save you money. A professional stationery shop has access to numerous vendors for every budget, and knows what products are a good value, and is able to direct you accordingly. The local storefront’s buying power is something you can benefit from, and their expertise in etiquette can help you avoid embarrassing and often costly mistakes. Small local businesses can resolve any issues that come up!

At Kathryn’s Bridal & Invitations, we can offer significant value to brides who purchase their dress from us. We have a wonderful Invitation & Design Studio with the largest selection to satisfy every price point. In addition, we promise superior customer service and etiquette expertise. Our goal is to ensure each bride is confident that she is in the care of true local professionals who will help make her dream day a reality and within budget.  Your time is money and we want to make sure you spend it wisely. We have so many beautiful invitation options to choose from, and many only look expensive!  You can always dress up a very basic invitation she sells with ribbon, jewels, or layers, rather than taking the risk of doing it entirely yourself. It is always to your benefit to shop locally!
