Wedding planning is special, but it can also be quite stressful. We’ve heard time and again that deciding on, and inviting guests is one of the top stressors. There are no general, one-size-fits-all answers to help with this; each family must draw their own conclusions. However, two ways you can facilitate this process are: discerning your wedding priorities, and investing in a fun, hassle-free way to set the tone for your wedding.
In order to help you, we put on our bridal detective shoes, and went through the full experience at Basic Invite. Here is what we loved:
Free address collection and addressed envelopes!
As a bride who self-addressed each invitation, I can’t tell you how valuable this is! Once you input your addresses, the envelopes arrive on your doorstep with the addresses already beautifully inscribed… for free!
While browsing the site, we couldn’t help but fall in love with a wedding invitation unlike any other we’ve encountered – seal and send invitations. The old-fashioned concept behind these invitations resonates with our sentimental hearts! The R.S.V.P. card, directions, invitation- everything- magically fit in one attractive, compact invitation.
There are so many color options- down to small variations in hue- with Basic Invite. Even the envelopes come in 40 different colors! Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. Your wedding colors are sure to be represented in their vast selection! Futhermore, when you browse items, the website will show you all the coordinating options that will compliment your choice- from envelope bands to unique favors such as personalized coasters.
Free, matching wedding websites
We love how Basic Invite helps you create such a cohesive first impression for your guests! They offer free wedding websites that you can customize to match your invitations! Your paper suite, and website are the first impressions your guests will have of your wedding, and Basic Invite provides all the tools you need for a cohesive, accurate expression of your wedding.
We ordered a range of products to see exactly how their products rate in person- they did not disappoint! The paper is beautifully weighted, high quality, and their colors are true-to-life. One item we simply had to see in person was their sailing themed save the dates. If you didn’t already know, Persuasion Photography is partially named for Jane Austen’s “Persuasion,” which involves many coastal and nautical themes. We simply had to find indulge in our nerdier side, and play with the idea of what the characters’ wedding would look like in modern day, and we thoroughly believe their celebration would involve nautical homage and sailing into the sunset. Their sailing themed save the date fits our visions perfectly! (To see more of this romantic, seaside cliff session that we featured on the card, click here).
In conclusion, we loved the whole experience that Basic Invite has to offer, and feel that they are a great tool for a well-curated, fun, stress free vendor to add to your wedding team.
