If you're balancing your limited budget with your grandiose design taste, Minted's print-it-yourself wedding invitations could be a great potential solution. Here's how it works:

  1. Browse the designs from Minted's archives
  2. Personalize a downloadable file
  3. Change and re-download it as many times as you'd like
  4. Cost is $50 for unlimited use (only $15 for RSVP card designs)

Now of course PIY invitations come with their own host of challenges: you need good paper and a not-shitty printer — but for those who love the polish of Minted's designs, but find their prices out of your budget, going for printable invitations is a great compromise.

Here are a few of our favorite printable DIY invitations. As always, click the picture to learn more:

Don't see any you liked? That's probably because I have terrible taste, and you should go check out the designs yourself. Link your favorite in the comments!

  1. No one's paying me to say this: Our invitations from Minted were AWESOME, and rather nice quality for the price. I loved the ability to customize the designs, and I loved that they had a lot of non-traditional, non-cutesy-wootsy designs. Only gripe: the address printing on the envelopes was TINY and a little fuzzy. But I'm hearing back from people about the invitations, so I guess it was clear enough to go through the mail!
