Trending Wedding Invitation Themes for 2023

Wedding invitations are a crucial part of any wedding. They're a great way to hint at the wedding's theme and build anticipation among your guests. You want your wedding invitations to reflect your personal style while also setting the tone for the big day. The invitation should include all the important information, including the wedding date, time, and location. Guests can let you know whether or not they can make it by returning the enclosed RSVP card. Whether you're throwing a formal ceremony or a laid-back party, a wedding invitation can take any form you like.

Digital Templates - print your own wedding invitations

You can make great savings by printing your own wedding invitations. You can edit online after buying a template set from sites like ETSY, editing for FREE via Canva (thousands of images and lots of editing tools to create a unique item) and then download to print yourself or via another budget-friendly print service such as Printsoflove

After purchasing the above-mentioned templates from Etsy, you will automatically receive a PDF doc to your email. This document includes a link to CANVA, where you can sign up for a free account and begin editing your templates. I've provided two PDF documents with basic editing and downloading instructions to get you started. The features offered by Canva are standard fare for any decent image editor. You can modify the template's font, colors, size, and add images and graphics using their intuitive interface.

In addition to saving money on paper and postage, sending wedding invitations via email also helps the environment. While many of your guests may be fine with receiving digital invitations via email, there are still some who would rather have a paper invite they can keep or post on their fridge as a reminder. If you choose to print your invitations at home, keep in mind that 300gsm is the standard card weight. Printsoflove is our printing partner should you wish to have them printed professionally at budget prices.

Digital Online Invitations - Evites 

There are a number of advantages to sending wedding invitations electronically. Let's get into the financial details first. Virtual invitations are usually cost-free to send. You can save money by sending paper invitations even if you plan to send electronic invitations (as we mentioned above with our own selection of budget flyer wedding invitations). Many engaged couples today forego traditional paper stationery in favor of electronic online invitations and evites, which can include everything from save the dates and information cards to RSVP cards. Though they typically prefer to buy paper or card and mail invitations.


Invitations sent via the Internet are a green alternative to traditional paper invites. As a trendy, design-focused, and up-to-date alternative to traditional stationery, online wedding invitations and planning websites have seen a rise in popularity in recent years. You can still find whatever touches of country style or calligraphy you're after. In terms of etiquette, sending a digital invitation is now completely fine. If you're having a more traditional wedding or if you know your guests will want to keep the paper invitations as mementos of the day, online invitations (or "e-invitations") may not be the best option. However, they're fine for most modern weddings and the vast majority of your friends and family.

How to make your own online wedding invitations

Websites like Canva provide a wealth of free templates that can be customized to meet your specific needs. Wedding invitations created with the site's editing tools can be downloaded as a PNG or JPG file and shared digitally with guests via email or text message.

Budget Classic Wedding Invitations

Traditional invitations are typically understated in design and employ a simple, classic font. A logo or monogram may be present in a small, understated fashion, but otherwise they are typically unadorned.

If you are having trouble settling on a theme for your invitations, the tried-and-true classics will never let you down. An invitation that is considered classic will be more traditional in style and have a design that will not date.

5 Wedding Invitation Money Saving Tips

  1. Choose the invitations you want to use and order them at least six months in advance. Putting off ordering invitations until the last minute can be stressful, especially when you consider the possibility that your guests will be unable to respond in time. 

  2. Always order a few extras in case you decide to invite more guests or if some of your guests are unable to attend and you decide to invite others; this will save you money and time later.

  3. Save money on RSVPs and postage by requesting responses via email or phone. If you have a wedding website, you can generate a free qr scanning code for the RSVP page, which guests can use to respond.

  4. If possible, order matching welcome signs, table cards, and seating charts from the same vendor to match the theme and tie everything together nicely.

  5. Make sure to proofread thoroughly before placing your order, as errors cannot be corrected without incurring additional fees.

  6. You will also need to confirm attendance numbers for caterers and venue providers.

5 Reasons Why Budget Printed Wedding Invitations are better than digital 

  1. Guests in receipt of a printed wedding invitation know how much thought and effort went into planning the wedding and inviting friends and family. It's true that you could try calling around, use social media, send a text or write an email but this method while cheap lacks sentimentality and shows a lack of effort.  A simple way to show how much this celebration means to you is to send printed invitations, whether they are ones you made yourself, ordered online from an online retailer (like us) or purchased at a local store. If you want to cut postage costs, see if you can hand the invitations out to those who are local when you meet them at family gatherings, work or outings with friends.
  2. Many wedding guests appreciate a printed invitation rather than digital invitations because they are more intimate and personal. Guests with a sentimental streak often like to keep wedding invitations as a memory of the day. They might be fond of scrapbooking or want to frame or store the invitation in a memory box along with photos of the big day.
  3. Printed wedding invitations are easier for guests to refer back to regarding date, location, rsvp details. 
  4. Guests can pin the printed invitation to a notice board so they see a daily reminder and do not forget to plan for your special day. 
  5. Printed invitations are a great way to let guests know the theme and style, colors of the wedding.

Wedding Invitation Etiquette

There are many things to do, buy, and organize before the big day, but one of the most crucial is the wedding stationery. After all, you'll want to give your guests plenty of notice for your upcoming wedding. Get the party started with a wedding invitation that coordinates with your wedding theme to show off your unique sense of style. This invitation will be the first formal communication with your guests regarding your upcoming wedding, so put some thought and effort into creating something truly special. If you want to adhere to proper wedding invitation etiquette, send out save the dates first and later send out wedding invitations. Refer to our wedding wording guide HERE for ideas and samples.


Save the Dates

Sending out "Save the Date" cards is the first step in getting your guests excited about your wedding. If your wedding is taking place on a holiday or near a holiday, if it is in a remote location, if it is a destination wedding, or if it is in a touristy area, your guests will need them. We recommend sending out invitations for a destination wedding a full year in advance. If they will be in a touristy area or near a holiday, it is best to send them 9-12 months in advance. You and your guests will have plenty of time to make preparations in advance of the event.


Personalize them by including a photo of you and your fiance or other embellishments. You can customize them to look like magnets, brochures, postcards, booklets, flight tickets, passports or anything else you want. Your names, the date, the place, and the city or town where the ceremony will take place are all necessary pieces of information for the wedding invitation. Put this date on your calendar as well. 


Write "Invitation to follow," "Invitation and details to follow," or "Invitation will follow" at the bottom of the card in case the recipient hasn't been to a wedding in a while and thinks the card is the invitation. If you're planning a wedding website, be sure to include a place for guests to send their RSVPs. Not everyone you invite needs to receive a Save the Date card, but if you want to keep the guest list small, you should send one to everyone who does. 


Send a Save the Date card to those on your guest list who are especially important to you and whom you want to see at your  event.

To make travel arrangements for your guests easier, it is recommended that you include information on airlines, car rentals, hotels, local and nearby attractions, events, and special shows and theatrical performances. Get in touch with businesses directly to find out if they provide group discounts, and if so, make every effort to secure them.

There is a wide variety of styles to choose from, including classic, modern, flowery, boho, vintage, and religious.

DIY Wedding Invitations

If you're trying to cut costs without compromising on the quality of your wedding invitations, consider printing them at home. Create your own wedding invitations and print them from the comfort of your own home with the help of one of the many free online services provided by the many major online stationery retailers. 


You can print from your computer without ever leaving the house if you use their program; all you have to do is buy the paper, ink and envelopes. Thanks to the flexible editing options, you can enter your content, make adjustments, view a preview, and print it. Be sure though to add up all the costs to ensure your home printed versions do not in fact cost more than ordering from a professional print-on-demand site such as Zazzle.


The stationery for a wedding should complement the style of the event. If you're having a garden wedding, you might want to use invitations with a rustic or floral pattern, or both! Your choice of invitation color should match your wedding theme colors or it can be plain white with black or gold typography for a classic elegant look. 


Proof Read

Use proper grammar and punctuation when writing your invitation. You should have a friend or family member help you proof read the invitation. You should hold off on ordering invitations until after the event details have been settled. The standard time frame for sending out wedding invitations is four to six months before the ceremony, as recommended by most professional wedding planners. 


After you've figured out how many invitations you need, you should order a few extra for last-minute guests and keepsakes. In case of address mistakes, you may want to order 25-50 additional envelopes. Sending invitations early gives your guests time to respond, book time off work, arrange child care, flights (if traveling), hotel accommodation and more. 

Don't forget to factor in the cost of postage. The size and weight of your invitation and any additional enclosures will affect this.



Absent Friends

Notifying those who won't be able to make it to your wedding can be done in a variety of ways, including sending a card with the news. Mail these out as soon as possible after the wedding on the same paper as the invitations to give the impression that the wedding has already taken place. Reception cards made to match your wedding invitations can be included as an insert if your invitations don't have enough room for the information. The delivery cost of this card may be affected by its weight.


RSVP Cards and details enclosures

RSVP cards are a must when planning a dinner or reception to ensure there is enough food and enough seats for everyone. The RSVP card and envelope are conveniently included in the invitation itself. If you remember to include a postage stamp on the little envelope, all the visitors have to do is fill out the card and send it back to you by the date you specify. 


Index Cards for Maps: Guests who aren't familiar with the area may appreciate these cards, which include directions to the church and reception. If you want to save time and make sure that any undeliverable wedding invitations are returned to you, print your return address on the outside of the envelope flaps. Envelopes with self-adhesive seals are the cherry on top. Ordering these along with your wedding invitations is smart because they can be printed on the same paper and will reduce your overall shipping costs. 

How To Word Your Wedding Invitations

When it comes to placing an order for your wedding invitations, one of the steps that is among the most important is deciding on the wording that will appear on the invitations themselves. When designing formal invitations for a wedding, it is necessary to adhere to the protocols outlined in invitation etiquette guides. Every invitation, regardless of whether it is formal, informal, traditional, or non-traditional, is required to contain the following information:

  • Full versions of the names of the bride and groom in italics (including middle names for formal invites)
  • When exactly will the wedding be held, and where will it be held?
  • On the line that follows the date in the following paragraph, you need to write the year on the line that comes after it.
  • When exactly will the wedding be held, and where will it be held?
  • The location of the wedding that will be taking place (formal wedding invitations usually just include the name of the church or building, while less formal or casual wedding invitations might also include the street address)
  • The local area in addition to the state

Proper wedding wording etiquette and examples

These are the essentials, the aspects of the invitation for your wedding that simply must be included in the wording and that you cannot omit under any circumstances. Aside from that, the remaining language at your disposal provides you with a significant amount of leeway to express your originality. You should not allow yourself to feel obligated to adhere to all of the rules of etiquette if you are planning a wedding that is not in the traditional style. Instead, you should focus on creating a memorable experience for your guests. 

You can add a favorite poem, scripture or verse. You also have the option of telling your own personal story about how the two of you first met and why you've decided to get married. This is another option that is available to you. You could even use a verse that is particular to the season in which your wedding will take place. This would be a lovely touch. 

When crafting the wording for your wedding invitation, you should also take the following additional considerations into account: Who should we be grateful to for extending this invitation to us? (The parents of the bride, the parents of both the bride and the groom, the bride and groom themselves, the bride and groom's children, and so on.)

  • If the Bride's or Groom's parents have passed away
  • If the Bride's or Groom's parents are divorced
  • If it is the Bride's or Groom's second (or third, or fourth) marriage
  • If the wedding is taking place in a church, home, or other location that is not a church
  • If it is the Bride's or Groom's second (or third, or fourth) marriage
  • If the wedding is taking place in a location other than a church

The bride and groom may choose to write their own invitation wording for their wedding, which may include some or all of the following examples:


On Saturday, August 21st, the wedding of {first middle and last name} and {first middle and last name} will take place, and it would mean a lot to both of them to have you there to celebrate their union. Elegant Terrace, 444 Bridgewater Canal, Florida, at three o'clock Two Thousand and Twenty.


It would be an honor for us to have you join us as we honor {first and last name} and {first and last name} by celebrating love, friendship, laughter, and family. 


The happy couple will exchange vows and join their lives together in wedlock at three o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, August 21st, 20YY at Elegant Hotel, Bridgewater, Florida.


{first and last name} and {first and last name}, along with their families, ask that you do them the honor of being present as they join their lives together in the sacrament of holy matrimony on August 21, 20YY at 1:00 p.m. in the Holy Mary Catholic Church located in Elegant Town, Florida.


We, {first and last name} and {first and last name}, along with our parents, would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in the beginning of our new life together as we exchange marriage vows on Friday, August 21st, 20YY at 3:00 p.m. at Woodland Trees Club in Bridgewater, Florida.


You are cordially invited to attend the party that will be held to celebrate the beginning of {first and last name} and {first and last name} new life together. {first name} and {first name} will be united in marriage at the Holy Mary Church in Bridegwater, Florida on August 21st, 20YY, at two o'clock in the afternoon.


We would consider it a great honor to have you join us for not only the wedding ceremony, but also the reception that will immediately follow it.


On this day, we will marry the person who brings laughter into our lives, who shares our home and our dreams, and who is an indispensable component of both of our lives.


On August 21st, at six o'clock in the evening, you are cordially invited to join {first and last name} and {first and last name} at Elegant Hotel, Bridgewater, Florida.


These are merely a few illustrations of possible wording for the text that is included on wedding invitations. The bride and groom each have the option of coming up with their very own original and individualized wording for the wedding invitations. This gives the invitations a more personal touch. If the wedding will be more casual than formal, the wording on the invitation can also be more casual, and it is not necessary for it to adhere to all of the rules of etiquette for wedding invitations. 


Keep in mind, on the other hand, that the vast majority of people are typically time-crunched and have a tendency to skim what they read because of this. As a consequence of this, the language that you utilize ought to be as straightforward as possible.


Make sure that the final copy of your wedding invitation is proofread by someone who has never seen it before. This will ensure that there are no errors. Because of your familiarity with the text, you are more likely to miss errors that they find. They need to check not only for grammatical errors but also for spelling errors in the document. Request that they read it out loud to you so that you can evaluate the level of coherence and logic that is contained within it. Do not rely on your printing service, or online invitation provider to do this for you, as proofreading is your responsibility.

All-in-1 wedding invitations

Most of my invitations have text template fields on BOTH sides enabling you to make further savings on enclosures as you can add your rsvp, gift registry, wedding website, qr scanning code, reception details and more to the reverse.


As the creator of The Low Budget Wedding Netw​ork®, I'm always on the lookout for new and creative methods to help couples save money on their wedding stationery, decor, and gifts.


As a result I have come up with some innovative ways to ensure you can still enjoy great design and quality printing at a fraction of the cost of traditional wedding invitations. My flyer invitations start from less than $0.35 / £0.35 with volume discounts and sales. These cheap, budget inexpensive flyer invites offer quality printing at a price you can afford. * They do not come with envelopes and are paper weight (like regular flyers you get through your door).


Envelopes can easily and inexpensively be purchased locally or via sites like Amazon.

My best value option is in my opinion the Semi-Gloss Sheets. These are smaller than regular 5x7 invitations but are the same weight and cardstock type as the semi-gloss flat card invitations. 300gsm.
