Back to basics with Basic Invite

December 11, 2020

You’ve got the ring, you’ve got the venue. You’ve got the guest list and the photographer (hopefully me!), but now you need your paper goods… How else are you going to get the word out about the marriage of the century!? How else will you remember those friends and family who came to share in that party!? That’s where one of my favorite vendors comes in.

I have been recommending Basic Invite for some time now. I have always been so in love with all of their products and the ease of their ordering process.

One of my favorite things about Basic Invite is their wedding invitation cards options. With over 180 different color options to choose from, you will not walk away unsatisfied. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows couples to choose from one of the widest varieties of colors. In fact, you can customize every aspect of your wedding invitation and see those changes instantaneously. The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the last detail! 

I get it though, sometimes having too many options can actually be overwhelming… That is why Basic Invite offers an easy to navigate drop down system that helps you refine what you’re looking for. They even have a drop down that narrows by theme, you can look for specific styles from vintage to beach- all the way to fairytale! 

One thing I have learned over the last 10 years as a wedding photographer is that plans change! Things change and ideas about what you want can change too! Basic Invite doesn’t make you stick to your first choice as an end all be all. They let you order custom samples of your printed invitations to make sure they’re exactly what you want.

Basic Invite has got you completely covered when it comes to invitations! But they do so much more. They can even help you create a custom wedding guest book where you can customize your guest book to reflect your unique style and love. 

There are more options than I can list from colors to fonts to layout, but I absolutely adore the idea of using a photo for the cover. Why not grab your favorite shot from your engagement session with me to be the first thing your guests see when they arrive! 

Beyond providing you with a gorgeous custom wedding guest book option or wedding invitation cards , they’re your one stop shop. You can even create your own wedding website where your guests can access all the details about your big day. With a mobile friendly app, you can share photos and even maps to help your guests get where they need to be. 

I know getting all these details down can be a huge task, which is why I want to share one more amazing thing from Basic Invite that could be so valuable to my clients. They just rolled out this new product called Seal & Send Wedding Invitations. What sets these invitations apart is that they’re all-in-one invitations with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! They currently offer these in 30+ designs which like their other products, are fully customizable. The best part about these, is that the 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! 

I could go on and on about Basic Invite and why I think my couples should stop by there first for all their wedding needs, but really the proof is in the pudding as they say. So go check them out for yourself and let me know what you think! 

I’ve dropped the links to their website and socials below… while you’re there, tell them I said hi!
