How to Find Your Perfect Wedding Invitations

I’m sure that you all have noticed that my wedding posts typically fall on Wednesday, but every once and awhile I’ll change it up and put it on a different day. Basically, I don’t want to commit to posting my wedding posts on Wednesday, but today, I’m screaming….

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today, I want to share with you my journey of finding my perfect wedding invitations and how you can do the same. I will admit that it took a lot of patience and a lot of planning ahead, but the best things come to those who wait.

When I started looking for wedding invitations, I first started with searching for my theme on Pinterest. Now, this method may work for some people, but it didn’t work well for me. I found some great invitation suites that fit my theme and included all of my colors, but when I clicked through on the pin, it took me to a site that was either a) no longer functioning b) a wedding website where the wedding suite was $2,000 – which was not in my budget or c) just a site filled with ideas and no links to where I could get those items from.

After being defeated by that method, I decided to go another route. Instead of shopping for my theme to start off with, I made a list of wedding invitation websites that fit within my budget. I had to make that my priority and then have everything else fit into place after that.

I was working with a $500 max budget, and I wanted the suite to include: the invitation, the response card, and a reception card (since we were having our ceremony and reception at two different locations).

After making that list of vendors, I subscribed to their email list – my purpose: to get emails with discounts!

Another great thing about signing up for the email list is that I was able to get email updates every time a new suite/design was added to the site. For example, Wedding Paper Divas adds new designs at least once or twice very month. Since I started searching for my suite at least 8 months before I even needed to send my invitations out, I was able to wait until a design that fit my style close enough (I know I just said “close enough” but bear with me).

One day, I got an email with a new design on Wedding Paper Divas – it was purple and gold (I’m sure you can see where I am going with this…) which are two of my wedding colors. This was it, it was time for me to make a move.

I got onto the site and started making adjustments with colors and emailing the designer to see what cusotmizations I could make. On Wedding Paper Divas, there are a lot of manipulations that you can make to make your invitation suite your own. So right then and there, I decided that this was the suite for me.

But I didn’t order it right away. I waited patiently for the right moment. In a few weeks, I received an email from their list saying that all invitations were 35% off with free shipping! This was the moment, I put everything in the cart and pulled up my saved design and sent in the payment.

Soon after the designer contacted me and we began integrating the custom workings that I had talked to her previously about. After about 3-4 revisions, my invitations were exactly what I had always dreamed they would be.

So to recap, here’s the top tips that I have for you to find your perfect wedding invitation:

  1. Be Patient
  2. Search various vendors and subscribe to them
  3. Work with your designer to create something special for you
  4. Have fun!
