Stylish and Inexpensive Wedding Invitations from Ann’s Bridal Bargains
Find stylish, high-quality wedding invitations for unbelievably low prices at Ann’s Bridal Bargains!
Where to Get Affordable Wedding Invitations
One of the greatest shopping thrills in my life is when I find the exact look and style of something I want, at price that is a complete deal! Sadly, wedding planning isn’t always filled with such delights. When it came to my own wedding, I was amazed at how quickly the price of invitations, favors, and decor could add up! When I couldn’t find the style of invitation I wanted for the price I could afford, I went the DIY route (which had its own set of drawbacks and hidden costs). Now I’ve finally found the source for wedding invitations with high style at a low price: Ann’s Bridal Bargains!
The invitation design team at Ann’s Bridal Bargains is passionate about staying current with the latest trends, keeping their paper and print quality high, and all while maintaining their signature bargain prices. As much as I’m a sucker for style, I’m also stickler for quality! It’s important to me that anything I buy at a reasonable price still looks as great as more expensive options. These invitations are the real deal! I know this first hand, because I recently did this styled shoot with Ann’s Bridal Bargains that included their Seal and Send invitation designs and rustic wedding invitation designs. Once you see these invitations, I think you’ll agree; these have fantastic style and a dream price point!
Inexpensive Rustic Wedding Invitations
The rustic wedding trend is here to stay! I see so many brides who are dreaming of the look of burlap, lace, and Mason jars for their rustic chic weddings. Ann’s Bridal Bargains has a full line of rustic wedding invitations that will perfectly complement this sweet and simple country theme. You can customize the ink colors and wording so that your wedding invitations are unique to your event and your style as a couple. Some of these invitations even allow you to personalize with a picture!
If you love the Mason jar look, why not make it your wedding theme with these adorable Mason Jar invitations from Ann’s Bridal Bargains? This style is called Filled With Love and is only $129 per 100 invitations. Just like Mason jars themselves, these invitations offer pretty rustic style at a low price!
Woodgrain and Lace Invitations. The wood grain look is the perfect accent for a wedding in a natural, rustic setting. The lace detail gives this invitation the perfect bit of vintage-inspired elegance to greet and invite your guests with grace.
Country Details Wedding Invitations. True to the style of a country bride, this invitation looks great with pearls or denim! It’s a elegant way to announce your wedding with a classic country style. The best part is price: it’s only $99.99 for 100 invitations!
Inexpensive Seal and Send Wedding Invitations
This Brilliant Banner Seal and Send invitation from Ann’s Bridal Bargains, has an eye-catching style, and features a personalized photo! The Seal and Send style saves you money on postage (not to mention that it is affordably-priced to begin with).
File Seal and Send wedding invitations under one of the best wedding invitation ideas ever! These Seal and Send Invitations are printed on both sides and fold into their own self-mailing envelope, with a ready-to-mail response card attached for your guests to detach and send back. Not only are the printing costs less with this method, the postage savings are significant, and the style is fantastic and practical! This neat innovation offers a fully coordinated invitation suite and saves time and money!
Just detach and send! The Seal and Send Brilliant Banner invitation folds to create its own envelope. The pre-printed RSVP card has been detached and is ready to go!
The In Love Seal and Send invitation comes in so many colors! I love how this sweet blue and ecru style looks against navy polka dots with a bit of pink.
Can’t decide between the rustic invitation style or the Seal and Send? You can have both with this Romantic Details invitation. This rustic Seal and Send design allows you to upload your own photo for even more personalization!
Here’s a glimpse at a folded Seal and Send in action on the Romantic Details Invitation, as well as the response postcard.
Aren’t these styles something? You normally couldn’t ask for better combination of style and price, but this bargain just got better:
As a special offer for Dress for the Wedding readers, Ann’s Bridal Bargains is offering an extra 15% off your wedding invitation order with code DRESSFORWED15. That’s an amazing deal on top of a bargain! Offer valid through 9/30/2014. What an offer!
I hope you have as much fun picking out your wedding invitation style as I did checking out these invitations and styling these looks! You know cost isn’t an issue with these invitations, so pick which ever set speaks to you!

Wine-Colored Mother of the Bride Dress
This wine colored beaded gown is a beautiful choice for mothers of the bride or groom to wear to fall or holiday weddings. Read more below about what prompted me to pick this special dress!
Dress: Adrianna Papell Beaded Mesh Gown in Cassis at Nordstrom // Earrings: Effy 14k Gold Rose Gold and Garnet Drop Earrings //Bracelet: Rose Petal Cuff by A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz //Clutch: Kate Landry Pebble Clutch //Heels: Lola Cruz High Heeled Sandals
A friend of mine recently mentioned that she’s been searching for the perfect dress for her daughter’s wedding. One of her daughter’s wedding colors is a deep red berry color, and she wants to choose a mother of the bride dress that will either be a similar shade but with a different pattern, or few shades lighter than the bridesmaid dresses. That leaves us with a deep wine color like this, or a dusty mauve shade like this mauve mother of the bride gown. I’ve been keeping my eye out for burgundy mother of the bride gowns anyway, because that hue is one of my favorites for fall weddings into the holidays. When I saw the figure-flattering bias beading of this gown, the beautiful color, and the cap sleeves I knew I’d have to show it to my friend, and I was inspired to feature it for one of my picks! Today I’ve put some bronze and gold and garnet colors with it, but this look is fantastic with pearls, gold, or silver! Even some jewel tones like blue and deep gold topaz would be lovely with this shade. If you’re on the search for this color take a peek at some of the other burgundy dresses I’ve found!

Statement Necklaces for Brides
One of my favorite ways to dress up a simple strapless wedding dress is with a big, grand statement necklace. Here are six of my picks and more about why I love statement necklaces for weddings!

Statement Necklaces for Weddings
I’ve spoken before about how I wish I had chosen larger statement pieces for some of my bridal jewelry in this post about statement earrings. Getting the balance between the dress, the veil, and/or hair accessory can be tricky. If you add statement pieces along with way more than normal oomph to your hair and makeup, you can easily cross over the line of between being the most dazzling version of you that you can be, to a looking like a version of you that is so unfamiliar, you don’t feel like yourself!
I selected a simple, strapless Jenny Yoo gown for my wedding day, because I felt both at ease and elegant in it. I’ll never forget that there was a beautiful array of statement necklaces at Garnish, where I purchased my dress. I had been eyeing them when I first walked in, and when I had my gown on, Mia, the owner, remarked, ‘one of those statement necklaces would be great with that dress.’” I agreed, but since the dress was my first purchase, I figured take some time I’d see what was in store for my wedding jewelry in general, thinking their might be some family jewelry I might wear. After playing around with earrings, veils, and bracelets, I didn’t end up wearing a statement necklace, and now I wish I had, it would have added a great unique layer of embellishment to my dress.
As if to make up for my choice not to wear a necklace, I now feature a ton of statement necklaces in my posts, and I especially love seeing them on brides. There are thousands of necklaces to choose from. If these aren’t quite your style, my retail partners like BHLDN, Shopbop, and Ann Taylor have some amazing choices. I also love this smaller kate spade new york bouquet necklace and this iridescent kate spade new york capital glow necklace . I’ve shown some traditional white, pearl, crystal,and pink versions here, but a statement necklace in any color is a wonderful way to let you personality and wedding colors in to your style. I usually recommend that if you go bold with the necklace, just wear a pair of chunky–but not overwhelmingly large– stud or button earrings. Also play around with getting the right veil or headpiece so that you don’t have too much going on. You want to complement your face and your wedding gown, not distract from it!

Light Brown Bridesmaid Dress
If there’s one color I certainly haven’t featured enough in my style collages, it’s brown. In my own wardrobe I wear brown quite a bit–especially in fall–but I haven’t come across a brown dress with wedding-ready look that has inspired me. Until now! Meet the new luxurious shade and bridesmaid dress I’m smitten with:
Dress: Georgette Keyhole Dress in Mink from Ann Taylor | Earrings: Kara Ross Cluster Earrings | Bracelet: Pave Cabachon Bracelet by Ann Taylor | Bouquet: As seen on Project Wedding Photographed by Rebekah Westover Photography Bouquet by Last Petal | Tie: Woven Silk Tie in Brown pattern by Canali at Nordstrom | Shoes: Strappy Gold Sandals from Ann Taylor | Clutch: Ivanka Trump Domed Minaudiere
Isn’t this dress the perfect hue of soft brown? I’m calling it mocha, because I love colors that are flavors, but Ann Taylor is calling this shade “Modern Mink” (definitely not a flavor — ha!). If you tell your bridesmaids: Hey, you’re all wearing brown, they might get the impression that you’re selecting a drab color, but that’s not the case with dress. It’s the color of a smooth hot chocolate and it’s a rich and timeless as any color, and will give elegance and refinement to any wedding party. This warm tone is a great choice for fall and winter weddings, but because it balances so well with pastels like blue, green, and light blue, and cream, you may be able to have this work for spring weddings as well!
I tried to pick up a few colors with that blush and gold clutch, and a hint of blue in the groomsmen’s ties. This color also works so well with metallic shades like gold and bronze. I love this shade as a new neutral that has a little depth to it, there’s no fear of this soft color washing anyone out! I know brown was a popular pick for weddings a few years ago, and I think I’m really ready for it to make a comeback. If you have me in your wedding, make my dress a mocha, please!

Flowy Wedding Dresses: darling by heidi elnora
Last week’s foray into beach wedding styles has brought about some looks for bridesmaids, but what about the bride? Today, I have a collection of flowy light wedding dresses for you that I’ve been meaning to share for quiet some time. The timing is perfect for not just for the beach wedding series, but also to announce some exciting news about Heidi Elnora, the designer of these gowns! So, for my beach brides–or just my brides who just want to the feeling of being beachily blissed out–I’m excited today to show you a new collection warmly called, darling by heidi elnora. Enjoy this view of this sweetheart of a collection; and be sure to read more below about the surprise below!

Aren’t they lovely? I swear wedding dresses really do have a bit of the personality of their designers, and so it follows that I like to work with bridal designers who are lovely and kind!If you want a fun sweetly free-spirited look, this collection is a perfect pick! I had the good fortune to meet Heidi a few years ago and Bridal Market, and I was immediately struck by her easy-going warmth. As a newbie at my first bridal market, she immediately welcomed me with a hug, and gave me a personal narrative of her thoughts while creating the dresses. Needless to day, I liked her immediately, and she left a wonderful impression! Since then it has been clear in my interactions with her stores and staff, that this is how she and her staff treat all her brides.
Okay, okay, by now you’re on edge of your seat for the surprise at the end of this post! (I actually kind of hope you’ve heard the buzz about this news already!) It’s my two of my favorite things combined: reality TV and wedding dresses! Heidi herself will be starring in a new show on TLC called Bride by Design. Tune in or set those DVRs for tomorrow on Friday, July 25th, at 10 PM Eastern/9 PM Central to see it! From the preview, it’s my kind of show. I love seeing the brides and Heidi and her team work together to create the dress that fits a bride’s idea of her dream gown. Not only will you love watching these adventures in creating customized wedding dresses fittings, alterations (and last-minute changes - oh my!), you’ll see that signature combination of sweet and fun creative energy I saw in Heidi too! Check out this preview, and you’ll see why I’m hooked already! Want more inspiration? Check out these other Heidi Elnora posts.
