Let’s talk INVITATIONS!!!! Invitations and wedding stationery set the stage for your wedding. It not only gives guests all the information they need, it also shows off the theme or vibe you envision for your special day. You can relay information such as dress code, addresses, times, ways to RSVP, and any other important information they may need to know and it’s way more personal than a wedding website (although those are great for reiterating the info on your invite!). Invitations are arguably one of the most important elements of your day!
But how do you find the perfect invitation suite? These days, most people order their wedding invitations online where you’ll pick the perfect design that is cohesive with your wedding colors or theme. Using a site like Basic Invite, you can find pre-designed options to make life super easy, including matching enclosure cards, like detail and RSVP cards. They have tons of opinions as far as themes, designs, colors, and envelopes. They also offer thank you cards, save the dates, menus, programs and other stationery options so you can have all your printed wedding day stationery match – which makes my photographer heart happy!
Basic Invite offers free wedding invitation samples so you can actually see and feel a few invitations before you even order your own! I know personally being Type A, I don’t always trust ordering things online because I can’t see or feel it, but knowing you can **customize** an invitation suite and see a sample before you place an order is such a huge relief to me. Paper comes in different textures and weights and this feature allows you to feel it firsthand. And since it’s not a generic sample with someone else’s information (like all the other invite places send), it’s a good way to catch any typos, which in my experience happens ALL THE TIME. This is a great way to make sure you’re 100% happy with your invitations before you commit to purchasing 100+ sets, there are no re-dos!
Another great perk – Basic Invite is one of the few invite websites that allows almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Did someone say COLOR?! 😍 Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, the invite is sure to be exactly how you want it! This is something I wish I had when I was getting married. If the traditional wedding invitations aren’t your thing, they have other options that include more unique features such as, acylic invites, and foil invites, which are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Couples can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. They also have over 40 different envelope colors to choose from, and they are peel and seal – no one likes licking envelopes! These features are HUGE if you are looking for a way to have a more custom suite, especially if you’re on a budget.
MY FAVORITE PART! Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows couples to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. They simply click the link, fill out their address and you’re DONE! No more text messages, facebook or IG messages hounding people for addresses. The addresses are stored in the couple’s account and can be selected during the design process. AND Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. A game changer if you ask me! Gone are the days of sitting at the kitchen table at 3am with a glass of wine hand writing 150 envelopes. Now you can enjoy your wine AND your free time 😉
But it doesn’t stop with wedding invites! Why not have your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and any other event invitations match too?!
