Wedding detail shots are quickly becoming my favorite thing to grab before the ceremony. You can add such a personal touch to these with the perfume you're wearing or your something borrowed and blues. Oh what i wouldn't give to redo all the wedding things. I got married in 2014 when country shabby chic mason jar pom pom weddings were trending in Pinterest. It was a DIY special for sure. I put together a collage of our cheesy engagement photos on shutterfly and called it a SAVE THE DATE CARD.
Basic Invite makes DIY-ing your Save the date cards simple with a variety of elegant and modern designs to choose from. 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. Your cards can be customized down to the last tiny detail. This is what sets them apart from any other online stationery company and why so many couples prefer them. Modern, minimal, timeless.. whatever you’re style goal is, it can be achieved using Basic Invites templates.
The coolest part about Basic Invite is that they give you the option of a free, completely customizable wedding website where you can upload photos, directions for guests, and specific wedding details all to match your wedding invites. I love this idea because It makes it easy to just send a link with all your info in one place, plus it looks so professional and such a cool thing to showcase your beautiful engagement images for those that you may not have physical addresses for or in case of lost invitations.
Speaking of addresses Basic Invite has a Free Address Collection Service where you can request the addresses of each guest through a social link or email and with this you can get free envelope printing which saves so much time in the wedding planning process, I would have killed for something like that back in 2014.
Basic Invite has a seal and send wedding invitation that is the newest hype with brides. They are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! Currently, they offer them in over 30 designs including the ever-popular foil options, and, like other products, they are customizable. The best part about Seal & Sends is that 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.
Each of the wedding invitation designs comes as a set, so that gives you the option to order matching Thankyou cards, Pro tip: order the Thankyou cards when you order your save the date cards, that way when you are exhausted after the honeymoon you will already have them on hand. They have everything you need for those detail shots even matching wedding menus and programs!
This may only be me but I love getting colorful packages in the mail, I immediately think its going to be something fun and exciting. You have over 40 different envelope color options so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. Basic Invite envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly, because the last thing you want to be focused on while planning your wedding or elopement is licking hundreds of yucky envelopes.
Unfortunately it is common for colors to look different on our screens than they print on paper, which is why I love that Basic Invite allows you to print a sample card to ensure that your colors and photos come out the way you expect them to before ordering a bunch of save the date cards that you hate.
There are the cutest save the date postcard designs on their site! What an ingenious way to send your announcement out! These are hassle free and seriously the coolest to save as a smaller keepsake in an album or scrapbook for your momma. With free guest address printing you cannot go wrong with these.
Let's just talk for one minute about these clear wedding invitations and save the date cards and how amazing they are. Who ever thought of making them transparent so that your photographer could change up the background and add new textures and colors behind it, is a creative genius and I want to meet them. Not to mention I have never received such an elegant, romantic, high profile feeling announcement in the mail and I will be astounded the day I do.
