    Splurge (within reason lol). I'd rather my money go to a local graphic designer than a corporation like Vistaprint. Helping an entrepreneur is more important to us than saving a few bucks.

    In person guests are receiving acrylic invites. Zoom guests get evites! It all balances out really well. We splurged in one category and saved in another

    SAVE! Next to no one keeps your invites and most barely even look at them. You can get nice looking ones for good prices so no point in spending alot IMO.

    Save! Haven’t actually done them yet but definitely not a high priority item for us. Would rather spend the extra cash on decor Smiley smile

    Save! A graphic designer friend offered to design our invitations and we'll get them printed locally to save shipping costs! Plus we'll have a digital version to send to last minute invites.

    Save. I did electronic save the dates, printed my own bridal shower invites, and ordered the invitations off Vistaprint on their 50% off sale. 70 invites, 70 details cards, 10 RSVP cards (rest are E-RSVP), envelopes for all of them, plus 70 return address labels, with taxes and shipping for $80.04. I love them, they are beautiful, and great quality!

    Save! I am fairly good at graphic design, so I will be making them either myself or using a service like Vista Print.

    Splurge on invitations ! The reason is because that is the first thing yourguests will see, therefore leaving them with a great impression

    Splurge! Our small guest count makes this an easier decision but either way, the invitations set the tone of the wedding! The invitations are highly important to us. We plan to carry the theme of the invitation through out the entire day ( matching programs, place settings, etc.)
