A collection of 497 wedding invitations ranging in all different styles are available as of the date of this Ann’s Bridal Bargain review. We like the filter options that allow to filter down quite narrowly by: color, style, theme, collection, features, and print type options.
Digital and thermography printing techniques are available, as are many different card feature types including double sided cards, folded, online reply, photo and z-fold.
With Ann’s Bridal Bargains you are able to customize the font, wording and ink color. Some designs are tagged as having more color options, which give you the ability to change not only the wording but the design as well. Some invitations also allow for a photo to be printed without an extra charge. They can also sometimes print a black-and-white photo on certain invitations. The charge for printing a photo is $25.00, but additional charges depend on the invitation you choose.

All wedding invitations include unlined inner envelopes and blank outer envelopes (unless otherwise stated). You can order extra envelopes, minimum of 25 extra at a time.
For your inner envelopes, customized envelope addressing is available for $1.00 per envelope. You are able to select font and ink color.
Outer envelopes can either be left blank, add your return address (+fee), address envelopes with guests addresses ($1.00 per envelope), or both. As far as addressing goes, you are able to choose the font and ink color that will be printed on the invitations.
Envelope Liners – For an extra fee you can add envelope liners to your order. Each invitation has its own choice of liner colors that are set by the manufacturer of that invitation.
Ann’s Bridal Bargains customization tool is full featured and has a lot to offer. While not as straight forward as some tools, you can pretty much edit and change any element that you want directly on the screen, with a real-time preview.
Process – Select a wedding invitations along with the quantity. There is a 25 minimum quantity of all invitations and it goes up by increments of 25. You can then personalize your design. For the font you are able to choose between a main style (invites body text) and accent style (bride and grooms names). Both allow you to change the text color as well. If you love the different fonts, but don’t know which would look good together, they have a style combination suggestion box.
There is a button called “Preview my Design” at the bottom of the page, which will reload your invitation so that you can see what you have done.
Ann’s Bridal Bargains offer a handy tool to select a verse right in the customization process. Samples for all different scenarios are given. For example, bride and groom are hosting or one parent is divorced. Alternatively, choose to write your own. You will be able to align the body text and choose the font size.
They offer the option of adding corner copy for no extra fee, which is where you can include information in the lower left corner of the invitation.
After designing your wedding invitations you are taken through ordering inner and outer envelopes. (see below)
If your invitations comes with any enclosure cards, you are taken through the same design options as the invitation design tool.
At any time in the process you can add special instructions and they will add your request to you order.
A couple add-ons that we saw with Ann’s bridal bargain, which we have not seen at any other online invitation company, they offer both inner and outer envelopes. If formality is your style (or your mother’s) than this is a great bonus without having to search for further matching envelopes.
The wedding verse selector is useful during the invitation designing process. Rather than searching endlessly on Google for the answer, it is right there in front of you.
We weren’t a fan of the font number size as you can only choose between small, medium, large and extra large font. However, the font style combination suggestion is a helpful tool.
With so many styles to choose from along with competitive pricing, Ann’s Bridal Bargains is worth a look. Click Here to Visit & Shop
