What. A. Steal.
Bridal shower invitations might not seem like a huge cost, but they sure can add up quickly. Between finding someone to design them and mailing them all out, it's all too easy to go over budget. Luckily, there's an easy way to cut costs: Find a printable design online. Instead of hiring a designer, you can choose a gorgeous digital invitation for a fraction of the cost, all you need to do is purchase, download, and have them printed yourself. Basically DIY but without the extra effort, you'll get wow-worthy stationery without breaking the bank.
But how exactly does it work? Online stationers design standard suites with limited customization options. You'll choose one you love, purchase the digital file, and then download it to your computer. From there, you can typically adjust certain text lines, like who the shower is for, the date, time, and location, and where the bride is registered for. Although you may not be able to adjust colors or sizing, you will be able to update all the necessary information for your event. Then, you can print the invites at home or have them sent to a local printer (even Staples offers printing service with a variety of different paper options!).
Best of all, you can find printable stationery suites to fit every budget. To help you maximize your shower funds, we found 10 beautiful invites that cost under $10. Sure, you'll have to factor in the cost of printing, envelopes, and postage, but we're confident you'll still save big if you go the printable route. Ready to find yours? These 10 options will have your bridal shower guests swooning.
Thanks to these adorable invites, you can invite guests to literally shower the bride, umbrella and all. The dainty design, which features perfectly-placed gold raindrop accents, is sure to be a favorite. Plus, the umbrella patterned back is just as much of an eye-catcher as the front.

Just because the bridal shower isn't taking place on a tropical island doesn't mean your invitations can't make you feel like you're lounging on a beach chair overlooking the ocean. These palms are sure to take you there.
