With the millions of people who already use Amazon for its convenience of products (the 2-day Prime shipping is worth every penny – you can get a 30-Day Free Trial here), it’s no wonder wedding invitations is one of their most-searched products. To find the kind of wedding invitations that you want to send, though, you have to do a little digging… and that’s where the Amazon Handmade invitations category will inspire you. Ever since Amazon launched its own Handmade section, I’ve been pretty impressed with the products offered. Skip the fill-it-in-yourself invitations, which are best suited for bridal showers or engagement parties; instead, opt for printed invitations and use filters in your search to keep things simple (choose Prime, if you have it, and limit the cost to “$25 and under”. We’ve found tons of cheap wedding invitations here for under $1 each.
Minted is the go-to for beautiful, independent-artisan designed invitations. Here you’ll find a plethora of invitation sizes, styles, and accoutrements to coordinate with your theme and budget. There’s a budget bride section with invites around $1.50 each. They now offer their new All-In-One Invitations that will save you time and money, since no envelope is required at all! This particular invitation folds and seals in one, while still making an impression.

I never knew how many beautiful yet cheap wedding invitations were available on Zazzle until recently. They work with handcrafted designers to offer wedding invitations in their showcase and many of them are great for budget brides. You can shop the wedding invitations on Zazzle here.
You already know David’s Bridal for their huge collection of wedding dresses and sales on top of sales; but did you know Shutterfly is also a great budget option for invitations?

Start browsing here (note: Invitations by David’s Bridal was sold to Shutterfly; invites are now available here.)
6. Vista Print
Vista Print has come a long way since it launched as a business print store. They used to offer business cards and flyers, and now they’ve expanded rapidly to include wedding invitations, save the date cards, announcements, and more. We planned a wedding for a couple recently who chose Vista Print because they had the cheapest wedding invitations and they turned out awesome. Check out their collection here.
7. Paper Source
Paper Source has some of the cutest wedding invitations, gifts, calendars, etc. I’ve ever seen. You need to check them out for your budget wedding invitations. They always have deals going on such as bulk discounts on envelopes and paper, so you can even get supplies for printing your own invites. They have a massive collection of printable invites, as well. Check out their wedding invitations here.
8. Basic Invite
One of the simplest, yet easiest-to-use sources for cheap wedding invitations! Totally customizable and TONS of designs to choose from, and so affordable! Check them out here.
9. Online wedding invitations + online RSVPs
Who says you need to send paper invitations at all? I mean, I love paper invitations as much as the next person, but if you are seriously looking to cut costs, a place like The Paperless Post is a great alternative. You can send free wedding invitations by email using designer templates from people like Vera Wang, Rifle Paper Co., and my fave, Kate Spade. :)
Another option to consider: cut the RSVP cards from your invites altogether and include a note for guests to RSVP online. You can use RSVPify to collect guests’ RSVPs in one convenient online place. And you’ll save money (and time!) on printing RSVP cards, those tiny coordinating envelopes, and postage stamps. Win-win-win. Check it out here.
BONUS: Print your own cheap wedding invitations
You can print your own wedding invitations thanks to artisans who create printable invites; just buy the custom design and print at your local print shop. This is a great option for brides who want to print many invitations because you aren’t charged per invitation, but rather as a design fee for unlimited prints. You can buy printable invites here.
One of my go-to places for cheap wedding invitations you can print yourself is Splash of Silver on Etsy. Not only are they awesome to work with, but there are SO MANY designs to choose from. You can have them printed up for you, or opt for the design file to print yourself. Here’s a really popular template — their “I Do, Me Too” wedding invitations:
For example, these printable invitations are from LaTintaAquarela and you can get a full suite for around $26. Or, just order the invitation itself for around $11 and print as many as you’d like! Just buy wedding invitation paper and take to your local print sop (like Fedex, Kinkos or The UPS Store).
