A New Discovery: Basic Invite
I've always been a sucker for wedding details. It's been one of my favorite things to photograph on a wedding day for some time now! There's something just so fun about dressing up the bride's details for the day and getting to use my creative juices. One thing in particular I always make sure to tell my brides is to pack a wedding invitation suite in their getting ready bag! But not only do I love the bridal details, I find every wedding unique in it's own way because the bride and groom bring their own stylistic touches to everything their guests see. From the flowers, to the seating chart to the table settings and invitations; they always show off a bit of the couple's personality. This is one of the reasons Basic Invite is a great option for several must-have items because they have so many options. They are full of not only invitations, but save the dates, wedding table place cards, wedding shower invitations, wedding programs and even guest books!
They offer a truly customizable experience. Select any invitation and you have the power to change any and every word on your invite. Want another font? Change it! Need to move the words over? Move 'em! Love eggplant purple? Swap out for a new color! With over 180 colors to choose from, you're bound to find the exact shade to match your wedding colors. What's awesome is it shows you a live preview all as if you're designing it in Photoshop yourself. But even better, once you created your perfect invite, you can order sample wedding invitations to get the feel of the real thing. My personal favorite is the 200 lb. double matte paper. It may be a little more pricey, but it's super sturdy and screams fancy! Another option is their raised ink or gold foil where you can actually feel the writing or design. Now that's elegant!
When I got married, it was such a hassle to collect all my guests addresses and then print every single person's name onto over 130 envelopes. Not to mention licking every one closed...yuck! Basic Invite has an address collection tool that sends out a friendly note to all your guests and they offer FREE envelope printing with peel and stick envelopes. Seriously, so awesome! Wish I knew about them sooner. And for those readers who aren't ready for a wedding or are far past that stage, there are still tons of options for everyone else: Holiday cards, baby announcements, all kinds of party invites, and even business stationary. Head over there today and check out what they have to offer. Right now, you can use the code 15FF51 to get 15% off anything you order. Enjoy creating your own unique card!
