In the age of the internet, nearly all of your wedding planning can be conducted online—from researching and booking venues and caterers to shopping for your wedding dress and table decor. It makes sense, then, that more and more couples are heading to the web for their wedding invitation needs. The hardest part of shopping for wedding stationery online? Narrowing down the sheer number of stellar wedding invitation websites out there. 

Here, we offer a list of our 13 favorite wedding invitation websites, along with some helpful resources for deciding how much you should spend—and how to save as much as possible when sending out your invites.

How much do wedding invitations cost?

The typical cost of wedding invitations ranges from $0 to $30 per invitation or more. As with almost everything in life, you’ll get what you pay for. Free or overly inexpensive wedding invitations are often less exciting and unique than those you pay for. Still, that’s not always the case. A great way to save money on your big day is to scour free wedding invitation websites and see what pops out at you. You might just find the invitation of your dreams.

If you’re planning to pay for your wedding invitations, figure out how many you need, and decide on a budget ahead of time. The cost of your invitations will depend on a slew of factors, including the paper type and quality (if you’re going the printed route), the number of invitations you order, whether the invitations are delivered electronically or via a shipper, and what sorts of customizations you request. On a strict budget? There are always ways to save money on wedding invitations and allocate those funds to other areas of your wedding, without sacrificing style and efficiency. 

Best wedding invitation websites

There are countless online wedding invitation websites out there to choose from, whether you’re looking for a traditional printed invite, an online wedding invitation, or a combination of both. 

Here are our top picks for the best wedding invitation websites.

Best custom wedding invitation websites

Many couples prefer to make their wedding invitations an authentic representation of who they are. Sometimes, even the most beautiful, engaging templates won’t do when you have your heart set on custom invites. Although bespoke wedding stationery is considerably more pricey than personalizing a template, custom designs can take your invites to the next level. Here are some of our picks for the best websites for wedding invitations that are partially or fully customized.

You can also contact one of the stationers or illustrators on our list to create a custom digital invite for you—or upload your own file for access to all of Paperless Post’s event management tools.

Pros: You can upload your own files and add Blocks with photos, maps, and more

Minimum price: $100 for custom design work, plus sending costs starting at 2 Coins per guest

If custom Bernard Maisner invitations aren’t in the budget, Paperless Post’s elegant Bernard Maisner collection is the next best thing.

Pros: Production of custom invites is overseen by Mr. Maisner, who also hand-writes all text
