You've just got the big news. You're getting married! You're having a baby! And now it is time to tell the world in the form of a bridal or baby shower invitation. The last thing you want to do is use your entire budget on the invites and after spending between $15 to $30 dollars per box, the costs can really rack up. However there is hope, check out some very cost effective ways of delivering the big news.
Save Money with Paper Invites
If you want to create your invitations on paper, there are plenty of ways to save money while doing it. In the case of a bridal shower, you may first want to ask your fellow bridesmaids to help plan, and thus, split the costs of the shower with you to cut costs.
If want to make invitations from scratch but need a little help with the creativity part of things, hop on pinterest.com and get inspiration from the hundreds of shower invites that people have done in the past. Once you decide what you want to do, visit a discount store or shop online for all of the necessary beads, ribbon, thread, buttons, paper and kits with everything included and get to work.
Finally, many programs that you probably already own such as Microsoft Word offer templates for just about any event. If you want to save money when it comes to delivering paper invitations, hand deliver the invitations to invitees who live close by. There are many options out there for creating your own bridal and baby shower invitations but above all, remember not to stress, after all, it's time to party!
Make Your Invites Online
One alternative to buying these invitations in the store is to look to the Internet. There are numerous websites dedicated to invites including Shutterfly, TinyPrints, SnapFish, Party City and Vistaprint which give you the option of uploading your own designs or choosing from a library of designs, fonts and paper styles.
Save even more money and time by doing all of the inviting by email. If you go to a website such as Paperless Post, you can use their database of templates to design your invite then download them for free and then send them to all of your invitees. In addition, creating your invites on Celebrations.com is handy as the site assists you in sending the invites and tracking the responses.
If you really want to pinch your pennies, skip all the frills and simply write out a well worded invite to all of your guests in a text only email and simply send it off. Keep in mind the age of your recipients, some may not use the Internet as often and snail mail may be the better option. It is important to remember that all of these electronic invites can be printed and mailed via snail mail as well.
