Etsy has a variety of invitation styles that range from very cheap to luxurious. You can actually separate your search by price on the left-hand sidebar when you search their website. As a bonus, new invites are added daily, so it’s no wonder couples love Etsy for cheap yet custom wedding invites (and everything else).
Whether you want printed invitations or a custom invitation you can print yourself, you’ll find it there. There are dozens of themes, colors, typography, paper choices, templates, styles, and more to choose from.
There are way too many beautiful designers to name them all, but here are a few that are trending right now. to give you some ideas. These cheap wedding invitations from Whimsical Prints are always a hot-selling invite design for fall and come in at only $1 each.

With the millions of people who already use Amazon for its convenience of products, it’s no wonder wedding invitations is one of their most-searched products.
To find the most affordable wedding invitations 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 Handmade section, I’ve been pretty impressed with the products offered, especially affordable ones. 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 accouterments 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.
In addition, we love how you can pick a wedding invitation design to apply to other areas of your wedding such as coordinating table numbers, place cards, menus, escort cards, and more — even thank you cards for after the wedding.
When you’re already looking to save money on invitations, it’s important to see what other extras you can find. At Minted, you can get FREE address printing (so you won’t have to hand-address them, yet they’ll look very professional). Another fave? A FREE wedding website (that looks stunning, tbh).

One of my go-to places for cheap wedding invitations you can print yourself is ViolaMirabilisDesign on Etsy. Not only are they awesome to work with, but there are SO MANY designs to choose from. You can have them printed for you, or opt for the design file to print yourself. Here’s a really popular template — their “I Do, Me Too” style:
For example, these printable invitations are from AquarelaPrintables 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! You can get wedding invitation paper like this and take to your local print sop (like FedEx, Kinko’s or The UPS Store).
