Handmade Wedding Invitations: In earlier days, invitations were handwritten in parchments and were given to the guests to invite them. As time changes, the invitations too changed from parchments to paper, written to typing or embossing etc. History repeats itself _ now again people are in love with parchments and calligraphy. Handmade wedding invitations are latest trend; they are not only stylish but also look elegant with a touch of antiqueness added to it. Handmade invitations can be done on parchments, tissue papers, coarse papers (that look like parchments), letters engraved on wood, glossy sheets, etc. These invitations are very much affordable since the raw materials are easily available. Rather than printing default invitations available in the market you can prefer these; since these look more ostentatious than the normal ones. Additionally the cost of the handmade invitations is also nominal.
Bottom line, you do not need to worry too much about not having too much money allocated for the most important and beautiful day of your life, because there have been and there still are many couples in this situation and almost all of them were able to have the wedding they have always wanted, and that because they knew how to spend their money intelligently. You can do that, too, as long as you have a good plan to follow and as long as you have a pretty good idea about how large or small your budget for the wedding is.
