Wedding invitations can be made from a large variety of materials and can feature an infinity of patterns and designs. Having said that, you can imagine that their prices also vary from very low to very high. If you plan a budget wedding and search for some cheap wedding invitations, learn that the cheapest invitations that can be bought nowadays are the ones made from paper and that come with their interior 100% blank. This will help the stationery manufacturer keep the price of his/her invitations low, for not using ink to create the layout of those invitations.
At the same time, in order to save some money, stationery manufacturers do not use complicated drawings on the first cover of their invitations and also do not sell their invitations with matching envelopes, letting their customers deal this matter differently, either by purchasing separate envelopes or by creating the envelopes themselves.
Speaking of which, other solution if you want some cheap wedding invitations is to design them yourself. All that you need is a color printer, lots of inspiration (and if you do not have inspiration, you can find plenty of models and designs online) and special paper to print your invitations. Even envelopes can be printed with the same design that you have chosen for your invitations, only that for them, it is preferable to use a special printer, that works only with envelopes. You can use a regular printer as well, only that the paper that will be printed will be thicker and it could get stuck inside that regular printer; so in order to keep problems away, it is wise to use envelopes bought from stores. For example, you can purchase some white envelopes, that you will draw with some colored pens and pencils to match the design of your invitations. This way, you will save some money for not buying a special printer to print envelopes, and you will also make your guests happy for offering them some handmade wedding invitations.
