My goodness, spring is just right around the corner. It’s been 70 degrees a few days here and totally tricked me into thinking it had already arrived. With spring, comes the start of wedding season- which I’m so very excited about. These days and months leading up to the wedding are filled with planning alllllll the details from big to small- the ones that will make your day everything you’ve ever dreamed of. One of the hardest things I’ve found about wedding planning is that there are SOO many decisions. From food choices and first dance songs, and bouquet colors to theme details, it can all be so overwhelming and I’m sure you can relate.
Anything to relieve you of just a little bit of stress, right?! Well, meet Basic Invite– a customizable paper goods company that offers a card for any occasion you can imagine. Of course, they offer wedding invites, but also offer cards for birthdays, bachelorette parties, save the dates, and baby showers and the like. I’m such a sucker for the tiny little details and being able to take full control over the design process, which is why I’m so thrilled to partner with Basic Invite, because they truly do it all, and make the design process almost too easy for making personalized wedding invitations. Today, I’ll introduce you to their brand while sharing some tips from my own wedding planning experience, to help make this step in the planning process a liiiiiitle easier for you.
First things first, come up with and know your wedding day theme and make sure your fiancé is on board.
For us, we’re going with a simple yet classy theme full of gold, eucalyptus and fresh cream-colored florals. The first thing Cam said when I asked him what he wanted the invites to look like was, verbatim, “None of that flowery shit”. Okay, yes dear, no flowers it was. Once you know your theme and generally how you want to carry that through with your décor and details, the invite design will come so easily. And Basic Invite helps with that so much. Classy, yet simple, with none of that flowery shit, they got it. A black tie affair with the fanciest of gold and crystal, no doubt. And even all the way from rustic shic to botanical garden- they truly have something for every couple, and more than 800 invite suites to be exact. I’m sure you’ll find that there are even TOO many cute designs to choose from that you’ll have a hard time picking. And remember, although these designs are templates, they are 100% completely customizable, from the font and text color, to the wording and text placement, you can adjust just about anything.
Once you’ve selected a design template, or at least narrowed it down to a few (good luck with that!), time to get carried away with the customizing!
I spent SO long playing with every pretty color combination of their 180 color choices and changing all the little elements of the invite. The possibilities are pretty much endless, and allow you to get exactly the feel you’re looking for in the invite suite. To me, this is what sets Basic Invite far above the rest. Most other invite companies allow you to choose from a couple different color variants of a design template, but don’t offer complete customization like these guys do. Total game changer in matching your color pallet nearly exactly! Not only can you customize the entire template, but you also have 40 colors to choose from for their peal-n-seal envelopes, and even have the option for FREE address printing on them. I always give Cam the dirty job of licking the envelopes, but with these, not a complaint from him! And, no sore hand from having to write out allll the addresses. WIN-WIN. Not only that, but with your invite order, you also get a free completely customizable wedding website with the ability to accept and track the wedding website RSVPs. WIN X3 in my book!
And lastly, have fun with it!
Play around. Check out the raised gold foil, laser-cut edges and all the floral designs. Go big or go home. Make these invites totally YOU and set the mood for the best day of your life. You only get this day once, and it’s going to be perfect. Basic Invite is along for the ride in making your wedding day planning stress free. Go check out their website, play around, and you’ll see what I mean. I’m sure you’ll be just as smitten with all their classic wedding invitations as I am.
