Wedding Invitation Ideas!

Wedding Invitation Ideas

Y’all know how much I love to photograph a great wedding invitation suite.  Details are my jam!  Today, I’m sharing some of my favorites with you.  You won’t be disappointed in all of your choices of Wedding Invitation Ideas with Basic Invite.

 Each of Basic Invite’s wedding invitations is part of a set, and you have 900 sets to choose from.  They have all the wedding stationery you need, like save the dates, engagement invitations, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards!

Wedding Invitation Ideas

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options.  The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. This is what sets them apart from any other online stationery company and is a huge draw.

They are as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different envelope colors so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened.

Seal and Send Invitations

All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and easily.  Their seal and send wedding invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included!   The Seal & Send is their newest collection and brides are LOVING them. Currently, they offer them in over 30 designs including the popular foil options, and, like their other products, they are customizable. What’s special about these Seal & Sends is that your guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design.  Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker!   Simple and easy.

Two of my favorite features of Basic Invite are their Free Wedding Websites and the ability to print free Custom Samples!  Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their invitation so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order.  This is a valuable feature, trust me on that!

 Their wedding websites are completely customizable too! They’re mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images, and a convenient map with directions for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors, and a design suite to match your wedding invitations!

Engagement Invitation Ideas

For y’all who will be having a fabulous Engagement Party,   They have you covered there too.  A frequently asked question is when to have your engagement party.   If you are having an especially long engagement, engagement parties are held between one and three months after your engagement.  They’ve also been traditionally held one year prior to your Wedding date.  In some cases, that could be in the same date range.

Y’all, I hope this information has been helpful.  In full disclosure this post from Basic Invite is sponsored.  I have received small compensation for featuring their invitations.  However, you should also know that I would not feature anything that I personally didn’t love and enjoy. I love photographing details and helping you remember everything about your Magical day.

I cannot wait to talk to y’all about your Wedding Day!   Click right here and let’s chat!

Many hugs to you all!
