Pinterest have you overwhelmed with invitation designs? We get it. There are so many! While we can’t help you decide between foil or letterpress, we can direct you to the best wedding invitation websites out there. These sites make it easy—and fun—to choose a templated design and customize stationery for your big day. The best part? You can stick to your budget—some start as little as $1.99 for printed suites.

Whether you go all-digital or design paper invitations online, these websites offer tons of tools and services, from chats with real-life designers to guidelines on how to properly address your envelopes. Plus, these websites will help you with other paper goods too, like your save-the-dates, thank you cards, menus, and even party favor mugs. Enjoy wedding planning from the comfort of your own couch and consider the invitations done.

Below, discover the top places to design your wedding invitations online.

1. Minted

Foil press, letterpress, floral or watercolor—if you can dream it, they've designed it. Minted has been a loyal standby for engaged couples for more than a decade, and it’s no wonder. Their designs range from trendy to traditional, and any theme includes matching save-the-dates, thank you cards, day-of paper goods, and, now, signage like seating charts and welcome posters. That extends to digital too—use their online tools to make your own custom monogram and create your wedding website, where you can log guest RSVPs. As an added perk, Minted offers free guest addressing which will save you time (and money!).

2. Artifact Uprising

How about checking out stationery samples before buying online? Order Artifact Uprising’s Wedding Suites Sample Kit right to your door. The custom photo product company makes wedding invitations too, and they’ll send you a selection of their designs Warby Parker-style. You’ll get a box of assorted paper goods and themes, including three different printing styles (digital, foil-stamped, and custom engraved) before you even begin designing your own. Once you do, you can add day-of goods to match and even order a wedding photo book after your nuptials. For the sustainability-minded, you’ll rest easy knowing that the thick, archival paper is manufactured with wind power.
