For the budget-conscious bride, her eyes may bug out when she starts looking at the bill she's racking up for her dream wedding day. Or, maybe your the groom wondering how you'll every afford your bride's wedding wishes.
Weddings can be expensive once everything is tallied up so you may be looking for ways to save money on your wedding decor and other wedding day expenses. From wedding dresses and honeymoon costs, to caterers, floral arrangements, invitations and so many more wedding related expenses.
What's the bride and groom-to-be supposed to do to keep costs from blowing up the budget completely?
How about trying printables!
There are thousands of options for saving money on your wedding and one of the easiest is to simply print some (or all) of your own wedding stationary.
My husband and I did this for our own wedding. As someone who can maneuver her way around design software, I was able to build our own invitation template (back in the day before amazing software was available to everyone) and designed the text layout. Loaded paper and hit print!
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DESIGN A PRINTABLE? HELP!!
Not everyone is a graphic designer. And that is A-okay!!! That's why I've created entire lines of themed wedding printables, baby shower printables, graduation, birthdays and more.
I know it can be difficult so I've tried by best to make saving you time and money... and maybe your sanity and budget... by creating simple to use wedding templates that you can edit right from your laptop. A few minutes of your time, the cost of ink and paper, and you can have all your wedding paper products edited, printed and ready to use at a small fraction of the cost of having a big design company create them.
When you are looking for ways to cut down your wedding budget, I recommend looking into having some of your wedding decorations printed. Some you can edit and print right from your home printer. Others, a quick trip to your local print shop, and you have stunning, personalized wedding signs, invitations and more. Lots of wedding stationary can be easily edited online with Canva and printed out in minutes.
