Free wedding invitation samples are mailed out by many of the companies that print wedding invitations so you can get an actual look at the design, color, and the paper for invitations you may consider using for your wedding.

These wedding invitation samples will also give you some design ideas if you plan to make your own wedding invitations or send one online. They're also great examples to help you with the wording on your final invitations, no matter where you decide to order them from.

All of these wedding invitation samples are free with free shipping. In the descriptions, we've noted how many samples you can request and if you need a promo code during checkout. A few of the websites will require you to enter your credit card information even for an order that totals zero.

Tip: You won't be able to personalize most of the wedding invitation samples, they'll come with sample text or a blank area where the text would go. If you're serious about ordering from one of these companies and would like a proof with your wedding details, we recommend calling or emailing them to see if they'll send you a complimentary sample.
