Your wedding invitations set the tone for your entire event. You can spend hours and hours searching through the thousands of beautiful wedding stationary options online. And while shopping online is the easiest way to find your perfect design, it’s still no substitute for seeing and feeling the invitations yourself. The solution? Order free wedding invitation samples.

Ordering samples of your wedding invitations before you make the big order will ensure the look, feel, and quality is exactly what you want. It can also help you get ideas for the design and wording for your invites even if you’re going to send them entirely online. 

Most wedding invitation vendors offer some kind of free sample. Here are some of our favorites.
