Where to buy wedding invitations

You're planning a wedding, yay! One thing you might be deciding on it invitations and where to buy them from. There are a lot of options out there but I'm going to give you some of my favorite online places to but them that I personally have worked with and are good quality! The best part is you can order a sample before you officially pull the plug and order 100 invitations. Now you won't be able to customize them, they will come with a standard sample text. However its a great way to hold them, view them in person to see if they match what you see online and how well made they are.


1: MINTED

Minted Weddings offers wedding invitation samples, try before you buy! You can order a free wedding sample kit that includes five designs and swatches of their premium paper. Just remember that the samples won't have any personalized text or photos on them, they are all just samples of what you can expect. You can choose up to 10 samples, just enter the code 10FREESAMPLES during checkout to get a $10 samples credit, how cool is that!?. Each of the samples will also come with a matching RSVP card and envelope and even shipping is free. Now you will need to provide your credit card information for this freebie so just make sure that you use the code and that the order says $0 before you submit it.
