Simplify Your Stationery

Planning to send engagement announcements or save-the-dates? Make them yourself! There are so many fun DIY ways to customize cards or stationery to share your news. Doing so won’t just help you save big, you’ll also be able to truly personalize the message. Plus, you know those blank pieces of paper that go inside most invitations? Guess what -- they’re totally unnecessary! Save hundreds of dollars by skipping this super-formal tradition. The extra paper may be a little over the top, especially if you’re having a casual wedding, and your invites will be more eco-friendly this way. Remember, you can always put lodging info and other wedding details on your wedding website!
