Let's begin by looking at some of the most beautiful wedding invitations from Minted.

We spoke to John over at Minted and asked where we could find the most beautiful wedding invitations on their website, and he had two options for us: The All-In-One Wedding Invitations and the Four Panel Wedding Invitations.
These All-In-One invitations are fantastic because you save money by only purchasing the wedding invitation - it serves as not only the wedding invitation, it is also the envelope AND it holds the RSVP card right in it.
Simply fold, seal with 3 clear stickers (included) and send; no envelope required.
This wedding invitation idea is also a great option for the Eco-friendly bride, as it eliminates some of the excess paper elements of the wedding invitation.
Each wedding invite includes a perforated RSVP postcard that is addressed and ready for your guests to drop right into the mail.
These All-In-One wedding invitations come in an assortment of styles, colors and choices and are 5.76" x 12.03".
The four panel wedding invitations are a great, affordable way to get all of your information into your wedding stationery while maintaining a budget.
Choose from their many gorgeous designs, and from the color theme for each design!
These invitations do not include RSVP cards, you can choose to add them on (you can also add on direction cards, reception cards, belly bands and folded thank you cards) or you can register with Minted for one of their free wedding websites and have your guests register their RSVP online.
That way, you really don't need to spend the extra money on the RSVP.
The four panel invitations are a great option as you can choose what to add on yourself and create your own package.
There are so many wedding invitations to choose from, but John over at Minted let us know the most popular, budget-friendly invitations in the categories we mentioned above, and they make up our next few points.

We also had the chance to chat with Alyssa over at Minted about their websites, and here is what she had to say:
So for the free wedding website you can upload photos, have guests RSVP, and other customizable features [...]. As for the premium [option], you have the ability to switch your URL, add a password, and few other features.
With a website at Minted, you can match your website theme to go with matching stationery such as invitations, direction cards, RSVP's and more. You also get a universal guest list that saves addresses for you for anything you would like to easily send out, making organization so much easier.
Creating a free website at Minted can save you money by not needing to send RSVP and RSVP envelopes, directions and more in your wedding invitations, so that makes for a super affordable wedding invitation add on, since guests can log on to your own website, see directions, gift registries, and RSVP all right there.

We spoke with Kayla at Basic Invite and asked what the cheapest wedding invitation options are on their website and how to go about finding affordable wedding invitation options, and we were told:
Quantity is a big factor in the price of our cards -- the more you order the cheaper it is per unit. Upgrade options also is another factor in the price.
Our Signature Matte and Smooth Coated paper is part of the base price of the cards and does not have an additional fee, but our Double Thick Matte, Premium Shimmer, and Luxe Velvet papers do have an extra cost.
Adding foil to the card is also extra but is a flat rate per card and not per foiled text/graphic like many other sites.
So go ahead and check out what Basic Invite has to offer for affordable wedding invitation options. Keep the price down by playing with the signature matte or smooth coated paper and don't add foil.
Basic Invite also has Change The Date wedding invitations if that is something that needed to be done for your wedding. Check out the Change The Date cards, and be sure to Pin any of these photos to your Pinterest board in case you need to find this article again during your planning!
