My Wedding Journey 9 - Where to get beautiful and affordable wedding invitations - Sweet Bunny

When it was time to get the wedding invitations done, I had a dilemma I could either save cost and use the Invitations provided by the hotel’s vendor or spend a sum to get a nicer non-traditional invitation made. I went with the latter because having a church wedding meant that I would need 2 invitations for 2 different venues.

I wasn’t satisfied with the invitation cards the hotel provided and the fact of adding an additional simple graphic would cost me $10. I felt it was very templated and I wasn’t too crazy about a super red invitation although it was cultural and auspicious.

Printing wedding mass booklets - I began my search online and contacted a few local artist and vendors the price range was usually $1000.00 for 300 cards plus design work. Some companies don’t even bother replying my enquiry while others patiently answer my questions. I also approached a printing shop named Print and Repair, they introduced me to https://www.greetingsisland.com/ where there were many beautiful designs that you could use for free with their watermark behind the card. I used this site for the covers of my church booklets for a fee of $30.00 the alignments of the text were adjusted by page for me the total cost of 70 booklets was only $121.00 with glossy paper. They even sent me a video clip of the completed booklet being flipped to check if all was in order. I highly recommend https://printrepair.sg/ for their excellent service and quality printing.

Affordable wedding invitation card from China - Sorry, I seem to have gone off track with my church booklet; anyway I decided to print my invitations in china. https://dorishomecard.com/ was the website that I used; it was excellent that they were able to type my invitations in mandarin. My mother in law helped us write on red paper the invitation details in mandarin as I was not able to haha. My English is much better than my Mandarin. All I had to do with send Doris, the map and other details and she sends me the artwork for corrections. This process took a week and I received my cards a week later. Doris was very persistent in ensuring I gave her the best quality map so that my invitations would be printed out nicely. I would defiantly give her and her team an A for initiative and customer service. She even took a video of her staff packing the card to ensure they did not miss out on anything and always double-checking with me on the colours I wanted. Being a finicky person I do tend to change my mind a few times, they were very obliging.

I was given Envelopes, stickers, ribbons and 3 printed sheets for the invitations to slot into the card; I found the invitation beautiful and nonconventional. It came in lovely burgundy flowers and a pink envelope. Yes… my relatives advised me to stick with the colour red but at least it was not in a shocking red colour. The invitation was printed on semi sparkly paper adding a touch of glisten to the card. They even provided double-sided tape for me to stick the invitation on the side of the open card. What I love most was the option to slot in the church invitation slip for guest who I would be inviting to my wedding ceremony. I also liked the fact that they gave you the flexibility to add additional pages like for my church invitation slipped I wanted it to have blue flowers instead of the red ones which came in the burgundy set.




I highly recommend Doris Home as a wedding supplier for invitation cards, image, all in all, it only cost me SGD $450.00, inclusive of the envelopes which some vendors don’t even provide.
