No matter how big or small your wedding will be, you're going to want wedding invitations. They make communicating the details easy peasy (especially when you follow the correct etiquette). And nowadays, there are some excellent wedding invitation websites that offer gorgeous designs and plenty of customization options. Whether you want something that's ready to print right away or you'd rather spend some time creating your own wedding invitations, these trusty online stationery stores do it all.

You can, of course, work with local stationers for your wedding's paper goods instead. In fact, if you're looking for something truly bespoke and don't want to spend too much time designing them yourself, a stationer is likely your best choice. But if you want to browse a wide variety of styles, enjoy personalizing the details of your big day yourself or don't have a ton of turnaround time, here's where to buy your wedding invitations.

1. The Knot Invitations

Did you know we do invites? At The Knot Invitations, you'll find professionally designed wedding stationery suites in hundreds of on-trend styles. From glamorous foil details to vintage and boho floral prints, there's something for every couple. (And just to make sure your stationery really reflects your special day, you can request free design assistance including custom colors, fonts and layouts). But that's not all: Your wedding invites are fully compatible with your wedding website for extra convenience. Plus, you can order all your other wedding stationery to match, from your enclosure cards and RSVP cards to your wedding day paper (hint: place cards and menus). The goal? A truly custom experience for you, and a completely cohesive experience for your guests.

The Knot editors' tips:

  • Save big by signing up for The Knot Savings Program. Members get 50% off their save-the-dates, 40% off customizable invitations and 25 free thank-you cards for a one-time fee of $50.

  • With our free sample kit, you can physically hold your invites in your hands before ordering. That way, you'll feel 100% confident about this important purchase.

  • Simplify mailing by printing your guests' addresses right on your envelopes. It looks clean and it's a total time-saver (trust us).

  • Make the most of our free design assistance by adding a personalized monogram or QR code to your stationery.

  • Shop The Knot Invitations' Black Artist Collective for stationery that reflects your values.

Pricing: Our personalized wedding invitations are reasonably priced, coming in at under $2 each depending on the total amount ordered and type of paper. Upgrading to pearlescent paper or foil wedding invitations will cost a little more.

Production time: Depending on your chosen shipping method, your invitations could arrive within 5–7 business days. If you're ordering samples, allow 1–2 weeks for delivery.

2. Minted

Minted's custom wedding invitation cards are designed by independent artists and graphic designers, and they appeal to a wide range of styles and aesthetics (think: rustic wedding invitations, abstract painterly styles and beyond). The site also offers other wedding stationery for a fully coordinated suite. This wedding invitation website prides itself on its high-quality printing process and impressive paper options. If you want to feel the weight of the paper in person, Minted is happy to provide a free sample of your chosen design, helping to make this one of the best places to order wedding invitations online.

Pricing: Invitations from Minted vary in price depending on your preferred paper type, size and silhouette, as well as the total quantity ordered. Expect to spend $2–$3 per piece for 100 standard-size wedding invites on signature paper.

Production time: Stationery from Minted is typically delivered within 6–9 business days via standard shipping. If you don't have time to spare, you can pay extra for rush shipping, which has a delivery estimate of five business days.

3. Papier

Vintage floral wedding invitations, earthy boho styles and minimalist modern wedding invitations are just some of the beautiful designs you'll find at Papier. Browse the brand's own signature wedding invite styles as well as customizable stationery by independent designers. You can design your own wedding invitations by editing the text, font and layout to reflect your unique love story and wording preferences. There aren't quite as many personalization options as some of the other stationery sites on our list, but TBH, there's not much we'd change about these gorgeous invitations anyway.

Pricing: Stationery from this wedding invitation designer comes in at $2–$3 per invite for 100. Expect to spend a little extra if you're ordering a smaller quantity or if you spring for a shimmering foil design.

Production time: Papier's invites have an estimated production time of four days. Add on an additional 1–15 days for delivery depending on the type of shipping you choose. Currently, there are four tiers of tracked delivery options.

4. Basic Invite

Similar to The Knot Invitations, you can browse designs by theme on Basic Invite. This is an especially helpful feature if you've got the aesthetic of your big day nailed down and now you just need the stationery suite to match. The design-your-own tools let you customize the color, font and layout of the text, as well as the wording itself. Feel like unleashing your inner creative? Add your very own wedding invitation design and perfect it using the website's editing tools. To top it all off, you can have the envelopes printed with mailing and return addresses by uploading your guest list details (yay for one more wedding planning task complete!). Couples appreciate the ease of use, as well as the affordability.

Pricing: As with other wedding invitation sites, the final cost depends on the type of paper you choose as well as any other unique design elements (think: seal-and-send invitations and clear vinyl invites). For standard invitations on signature matte paper, expect to spend under $2 each for 100.

Production time: There's a slight difference in the estimated shipping times for different designs. That said, you'll more than likely have your stationery in your hands within a week if you pay for a rush order. Both priority and standard shipping will take a little longer.

5. Paper Source

Paper Source has one of the widest varieties of wedding invitation suites online, including stationery from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Neil Lane, Ines Di Santo and Monique Lhuillier. You'll also spot styles from some well-known brands, such as Rifle Paper Co. and Paperless Post, as well as Paper Source's own signature stationery. The website's design tools make it easy to create custom wedding invites with your preferred invitation wording, typeface and layout. Once you've finalized the details on your invitation, play around with different envelope and liner colors for one last personal touch.

Pricing: As styles and designers vary on Paper Source, so too does the pricing. We estimate a cost of $2–$3 per piece for 100 standard own-brand invitations. For styles from other brands and designers, expect to spend a little over $2 to upwards of $6 per invite.

Production time: Paper Source's proof review process generally takes 3–4 business days, but same-day proofing can be selected at an additional cost. The type of printing required then affects the total production time, with foil stamping and letterpress both requiring significantly longer than digital printing. Overnight, two-day and three-day shipping are all available once printing is complete, as well as ground (1–6 days) and standard shipping (7–10 days).

6. Etsy

Wondering where to get wedding invitations that reflect your individual values? Etsy is a treasure trove of unique invitations designed by small businesses and independent creators, so you're sure to find something one of a kind for your big day. You get to work directly with your chosen shop to discuss the details of your wedding. There are options for all budgets and styles, whether you want something understated or you'd rather go all out with ribbons and wax seals. For many, the best wedding invitations are the ones that you can customize to your heart's content, and on this wedding invitation website, the level of customization is totally up to you.

Pricing: Since invitation designers at Etsy are all independent businesses, there's no set price. It really depends on what type of design you go for, as well as the materials used and the level of customization requested.

Production time: Similarly, there's no set production guideline for Etsy sellers. That said, you can usually find all the information you need regarding production and shipping times in the seller's notes on the product page. If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to your stationery designer directly.

7. Mixbook Photo Co.

Mixbook is another one of the best wedding invite companies if you really want to customize your paper goods. Their aim is to allow you to unleash your creativity using one of their templates as a starting point. The big draw here is that many of the site's designs allow you to add photos to personalize your invites. The design-your-own wedding invitations come on your choice of paper. But rest assured that every option is ethically sourced from sustainable forests—they're even certified by the Rainforest Alliance and the Forest Stewardship Council. While you're at it, don't forget to design the rest of your wedding invitation set, including thank-you and save-the-date cards.

Pricing: Mixbook has some of the most affordable wedding invitations on the web. There are so many ways to save, such as choosing a smaller size or simple square silhouette. Invitations start at under $1 each depending on the quantity purchased, the type of paper and the shape.

Production time: Standard invitations are usually shipped in 1–2 days. If your invitations require any special printing techniques (think: foil stamping), production will take an extra day or so. From there, you can choose between budget, standard, priority or express shipping.
