Should everyone on the team buy wards or should for example carries save up the money for important items? I suppose a support hero should invest more in wards than the other ones?

For the most part, everyone should be buying wards. Supports and junglers the most and the jungler less than the support. Mid carry should buy 1 ward every three minutes or so and the jungler should be warding the bush they don't cover.

Like Lugignaf said above, everyone should be buying wards. One at a time for any primary DPS, support 2-3, jungler 1 ward at a time or one

1 at a time for AP and AD carries.
1-2 at a time for solo top.
2+ at a time, or one and Wriggle's Lantern for junglers.
2-5 at a time for supports.

Not a rule, but that's how I usually buy wards. Carries do need to save up their gold, but you absolutely should still get wards, especially if the rest of your team is neglecting them.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

Supports and junglers should be buying most of the wards. Solo top and mid can occasionally buy a ward to ensure safety in their own lane, but not nearly as often as the two mentioned before. If you're running AD+Support bot, the AD carry should never be forced to buy a ward if the support is doing a good job - instead, he/she should be focusing on farming and getting big items quickly.

Everyone should be buying wards period, always keep 1 or 2 wards at hand, wards win games.
That being said you support should be buying the majority of wards, but you shouldn't have to rely on him to much.

Usually when I'm mid I get 1 ward every time I go base and put that around the baron area, our support bot lane/jungler will usually ward around the dragon are allowing me to see a gank coming from every direction. Sometimes the jungler/support will put wards all around the map and I don't have to put mine down, but I still keep a ward handy in case an important ward times out or no one is in position to plant a ward in a certain area except for me.

Everyone buys wards.

There is no debating this, and there should be no concept of only junglers and supports buying them, as those champions already have lower levels of farm.

Everyone. Buys. Wards.

Top lane: Ward his top brush

Mid Lane: Ward the top to mid brush, maybe jungler does that

Support: Ward at strange places and the bot lane brush and the bot to mid brush.

Mid and bot Carries need all farm they can get, so they shouldn't have to buy wards.

The jungler, the support and top lane off-tank can ward better.
