Q. We're on a tight budget, but I still want beautiful stationery on my big day. How can I spend my money wisely?

A. Natalie Burrows says: -Search for a company that offers ready-made collections. This is a cost-effective method, and in most cases, the designs can be tweaked to suit your theme or colour scheme.
- It can be expensive ordering last-minute invitations, so purchase at least 10 extra just in case you forget any friends and family.
- Buy your invites and save-the-dates at the same time, and your supplier may be able to offer you a discount.
- Keep it simple. Ditch the ribbons and diamantés, and remember any handmade details will cost extra.
- Buy templates that you can customise. These can be printed at home, but keep in mind the price of the ink, card and envelopes.
- Instead of spending money personalising your invitations, simply add your guests' names to the envelopes.
- Create a wedding website. That way, you can include all the relevant information in one place.
