Using an Existing Invitation Design
[a more economical option]
We know that costs for weddings can start to spiral out of control and we completely understand if you're wanting a more economical option. While our custom designed invitations are already quite affordable, we do have a few suggestions for you to help you keep costs down.
If you choose an existing design from our website we can give you a discount on the usual design charge as the time spent modifying an existing design is a lot less than if we create something from scratch for you. In this case, you would choose a design from the website and we can modify it to suit your wedding and budget.
The other elements that affect the price of the invitations are:
Size of the invite - a folded invitation costs more than flat invitations as they are larger and therefore use more card and resources to produce. Also, single sided (front only) is cheaper than double sided printing (front & back).
Materials used to produce the invite - metallic card stocks cost more than matt card stocks. Extras (like translucent paper, ribbon, lace etc) also add to the cost of the invites.
Extra stationery - rather than have separate RSVP cards that guests post back to you, you could print the RSVP details on the bottom of the invitation, eg. "RSVP by date to email or phone".
Stick to one piece - rather than having separate info cards with maps, gift info etc you could print this on the back of the invitation instead.
Even with doing all of this we can still create a lovely invitation that features a beautiful design, and which is printed on very good quality card with a high quality print finish.
If you like this design...
...we can create the same design for you in the square folded layout but with your initials and details instead (cover shown):
...we can also modify the colours of the design to suit your wedding, eg. if you had a silver, black & white theme:
...or to bring costs down further we can change the format of the wedding invitation to something that is more economical to print, eg. a single sided DLE invitation:
