From planning an once-in-a-lifetime wedding to a child’s birthday party or your annual Christmas party, the entire process can be very tedious, exhausting, and most of all, expensive. There are numerous simple tips and tricks out there on how to save both time and money. We believe one major area in which you can find substantial savings is on invitations, especially nowadays with many excellent, convenient printing websites.
Before you decide where the invitations will come from, you need to make some important decisions that may cut many costs. First, decide what role you want the invites to play, how big of a priority are they to you and your event? Many party planners feel that invitations, since they are the first items on which guests initially lay eyes, set the tone. Second, get real when it comes to the guest list and your budget. You don’t want to under- or over-estimate on either of these important details. Third, you need to choose your printer. As mentioned, there are quite a few quality websites from which to choose. Here are our suggestions:
