Handmade wedding stationery is a fantastic choice for many couples (I'm biased, but still…)
Handmade give you something unique
Handmade allows for lots of personalisation
Handmade is made just for you, with love, care and attention to make sure that they are as perfect as they possibly could be
However… handmade is more expensive than generic 'fill in the blank' invites or personalised printed invitation you can buy online
(Both of which have their place in the world, naturally- I even have some invitations you can customise yourself on a print on demand website. But, I love handmade, so this is where I'm focussing my money saving tips today)
This is because you are not only paying for the materials- and quality materials on their own cost more than you might expect- but you are also paying for the designer's skills are creating a beautiful invitations, and for the time that it takes to develop the manufacturing skills to make 100 near identical, practically perfect in every way invitations/place cards/etc.
If this pushes handmade wedding stationery a little out of your budget, then I have a few tips and tricks that may help you out if you are willing to make a few compromises and work with your stationer...
