My wedding is next summer, and I'm starting to design my save the dates and invitations, but I'm not really sure what I should do.
We don't have piles of money, but we have lots of people that we love and that we would like to include in our special day, so we will be having an open ceremony, a small dinner reception for close friends and family, and then the dance and drinks part of the reception where we will be inviting those of our friends that we'd like to celebrate with us but couldn't invite to dinner.
What should one do for invitations in this situation? I'm sending out e-save the dates to everyone, but since the dinner and dance are separate, AND we don't have the deepest of pockets, can we send paper invitations for the dinner and e-invitations for the dance? I don't really want to spend $140 on invitations. Are there any other options for me?
Thanks so much for your help. I find myself a bit lost when it comes to wedding planning
