Deal Alert: 71% Off Wedding Invitations and Save the Dates!

I’ve got a deal alert for my engaged belles! Groupon is currently running a deal for up to 71% off flat invitations from Staples. They’re advertising it as being for wedding invitations and save the dates, but really you could purchase invitations for any fancy shmancy event you have coming up!

71% Off Staples Wedding Invitations  |  Trés Belle

No one thinks that invitations will be a big cost for their wedding, but it can really add up, especially if you’re wanting to throw in inner/outer envelopes, calligraphy, reception cards, ribbons, etc.  Do yourself a favor and buy invites on sale!

Attention, people! This is seriously the deal of the year. I love Wedding Paper Divas…they have gorgeous wedding invitation and save the date designs, and compared to many other companies, they’re relatively affordable. Still, costs can add up. That’s why I’m beyond thrilled to share this amazing deal: 30% off everything on their site now through March 10th with code ANNIVEXCLUSIVE. This is so big, y’all. WPD occasionally has 20% off sales, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen 30% off. Run, do not walk, over to the site now and start shopping for all your wedding-related paper goods!

I think Wedding Paper Divas is one of the best places to get expensive-looking invitations at a reasonable price. Wes and I found them to be a touch out of our budget when we were save-the-date and invitation shopping simply because of the sheer number of guests we were inviting (over 300 – yikes!), but it might have been a different story if we had taken advantage of Cyber Week deals.

The Best Source for FREE Wedding Invitation Templates: Wedding Chicks, of Course!

Anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows just how expensive invitations can be. Between letterpress printing and thick, textured card stock, invitation suites can run upwards of $10 per set (or more!). If you invite 100 people to your wedding, that means you’re spending $1,000 on pieces of paper that the majority of guests will send straight into the trash can along with the expensive stamps, ribbons, etc. that came with said pricey paper. No thank you!

Enter Wedding Chicks, one of our favorite resources for brides on a budget. Wedding Chicks makes it possible for couples to have gorgeous invitation suites that DON’T cost an arm and a leg! Simply download one of their many gorgeous templates, print (either yourself, or send to a printer like Staples or Vistaprint), buy envelopes, and you’re done! It doesn’t get much easier than that. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite free Wedding Chicks invitation suites:

Navy + Mint Wedding Inspiration

Oh goodness, belles, I am head over heels lately for a certain color combination: navy and mint. This preppy, playful combo would be perfect for a couple who is laid-back and likes fresh, clean design. Beautiful navy and mint invitations heading your way….

And now for our bride and groom: Navy heels for the bride, navy and mint bowties and navy suspenders for the groom.

And for the bridesmaids, navy dresses, mint heels, and bouquets tied with mint-colored ribbon.

Our inspired reception features lots of lovely navy and mint details, including navy escort cards, mint green table numbers, a stunning tablescape featuring navy linens and mint green floral arrangements, navy and mint striped paper straws, and even a mint-colored cake!
