Invitations, Wedding Invites The Frugal Way… A to Z Challenge

How I made my wedding invitations, they look great and best part is they only cost me $10!

I am always looking for a good deal, so as you can imagine once I got engaged I started looking for wedding items at a discount. I found my dress through Kijiji and saved tons on it. The second thing I found was my invitation. The local surplus store had a shelf full of wedding invitations for only $9.99. I looked through and found ones that I liked, all I needed to do was print them  from my computer.

Once we had the details set for the wedding I got to work designing the invitation. I used the template for word that came with it for the size. Than designed a layout for the information. I’m very happy with how they turned out.

I changed up how the ribbon and flower went on as I wanted my invitation to open. I used the sticky pad that came with the kit to attach one side of the ribbon and the flower. As you can see from the pictures below. I then used a dab of glue to hold the ribbon on the other side.

Now the invitation opens.

A little personalizing turned these nice invitations into amazing ones. I bet you would have never guessed I got 25 of these for only $10!

If you are looking at doing something fancier without a invitation kit you can use the same idea as my birthday party invite with your choice of photo as the background.

  1. We printed invitations for our daughter’s wedding, but we weren’t THIS frugal. She bought her dress from a shop that sells only samples and discontinued styles — big savings there too.

    • Luckily that will be an option for our kids, hopefully the “wedding customs” we be more relaxed for them. Our grandparents don’t even own computers! I seriously don’t know how they do it. But I love this idea if it works for the bride and groom.
