When you start thinking about wedding invitations, it’s easy to veer from excited to overwhelmed and back again. There are so many beautiful options (Letterpress! Gold foil! Engraving!). Or maybe you’re thinking about DIYing your invites, and your brain is running wild trying to sort out design and printing options… and do you really need all those extra inserts? (Spoiler alert: you don’t.) But the truth is, you only have a limited amount of time and money to devote to your wedding invitations, and you need to make some sanity saving decisions quickly.
Luckily we’ve got you covered. From an overview of printing styles, to cheap wedding invitation options, to everything you need to know if you want to DIY your invites, we’re here to reduce the number of tears shed over these pretty scraps of paper? Why? Because, well, the APW staff collectivly spilled buckets of tears over our own lovely invitations, and we want better for you.
Remember—the point of wedding invitations is mostly to get people to your wedding, all while possibly creating a tiny memento of an important day. (Mostly, if we’re being honest, for you.)
