Today, I’m partnering with an amazing stationery company, Basic Invite! One of the first essential items you will need while planning your wedding is sending out save the date and wedding invitations. When it comes to save the date cards, many of my couples may incorporate their engagement photos or send a simple yet elegant card. A few months later, a formal wedding invitation is mailed to all guests invited to the wedding. Photographing invitations on the wedding day is important to me because they set the theme and mood of your wedding. Your invitation is very personal and much thought is put into the stationery from the paper stock, fonts, gold/silver foil, embossing, colors, envelopes, etc. What’s great about Basic Invite is that you are able customize your invitation that suits your vision.
Let’s talk a little bit about customization. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows their clients almost unlimited color options with instant previews! Once you choose a design, you then have the option to test 180 colors options of each element on the card. That means you will be able to match or become very close to matching your wedding’s color palette. Not only are you able to choose from a variety of colors for the invitation, you’ll also have a selection of 40 different colored envelopes! The envelope will make a first impression on your guests. One of the useful/cool things about these envelopes is that they are a peel and seal so that you can quickly and securely close it. There are no licking involved with these envelopes! 🙂
When it comes to printing invitations, I know it can be a little nerve-racking to see if it prints exactly the way you envisioned it. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to order a sample of your actual wedding invitation so that you can inspect it, touch it, and make adjustments before making that final order.
It’s important that all of your stationery matches from the save the dates, wedding invitations/enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even thank you cards! Basic Invite offers over 200 elegant wedding invitation sets to choose from so it’s guaranteed that your stationery will match across the board.
They also offers free address printing. All you need to do is request your addresses by sharing a link and then they will take care of the printing!
I am truly fortunate to be a part of all of my client’s wedding day. This is such a special time in their lives and creating invitations is one of the first task to create when it’s officially time to notify and invite guests to the wedding. Wedding invitations can be an overwhelming process but Basic Invite takes out all the hard work so the only thing left to do is to allow your imagination run wild when creating your wedding invitation set!
