Who said that you need to hire a company to do them for you? Get creative and make your own.

You could include a photo of the two of you or make them 3D with a few items stuck down.

Doing the invites yourself adds your own personality so they are more likely to stand out for your guests.

You could use the invites as a way to tell the story of how the groom proposed or how you met. These could be through stick figures so there is no need to get a professional.

Make sure you still include all the wording on one side so your guests know when and where your big day is. At least this gives your guests something to talk about on the day.

You don’t have to just write all the directions out for the day (such as the date and time). Use photos to do it. You could take photos of yourself holding up signs or have the information written on a blackboard for people to read.

This is fun, imaginative and will definitely get everyone talking at the wedding. Your invites become more memorable.

Instead of making the date and time clear, why not use cryptic clues? This is another way to make your invitation memorable and you will easily keep the costs down—you can make them yourself!

Make sure you have the answers somewhere on the invitation for the guests who don’t guess it right!

With technology, most people have an email address. Save yourself some money by sending out your invite through social media or email.

This makes it easier for them to save the date and means you don’t need to print as many out. There will be a handful of people you need physical wedding invitations for though.
