Setting the tone for your wedding day | Meet Basic Invite


Details, details, details… they can seem endless when planning a wedding.  But not to be underestimated. From the florals to the cake, color scheme to reception décor details set the tone and mood for your wedding day.  And non-more important than your stationery suite.  It’s your guest’s first introduction to your wedding theme. 

So how do you nail your invite and accompanying stationery?  I want to offer a few tips along with introducing all of you to a new favorite paper goods company – Basic Invite.  While Basic Invite offers stationery for almost all of life’s special occasions, they specialize in wedding invites and accompanying stationery. 


First… Set a tone/pick a theme 

Your stationery will be the first introduction your guests have to your wedding.  When they open you’re your invite, it should instantly convey what your wedding is all about.  Sure, it also needs to include the pertinent information (date, time, place) but you want your guests to have a little sneak peek into what you have planned for them.  A small, intimate backyard wedding and tent reception should feel different than a black-tie affair in a swanky downtown loft.  So, once you’ve nailed the theme, you’ll love browsing Basic Invite's almost 900 different designs to find the perfect fit for you! 

Second… Time to Customize and Personalize 

Once you have your design, that speaks to the overall tone of the day, now it’s time to bring in the smaller details.  Each design contains almost unlimited possibilities to customize your card.  Change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options and see the results instantly.  But wait... there's more.  Basic Invite allows you to change fonts, card shape and paper choice ensuring that you get exactly what you want – down to the smallest detail. 


Now... Keep it cohesive

Often our wedding day starts by photographing details we've asked the bride to provide for us.  And we LOVE it when our client's entire stationery suite looks seamless.  When the tone, theme and custom details are all carried through from the save-the-dates to the RSVPs, not only does it photograph beautifully, it tells a story.   Basic Invite has you covered with over 800 different wedding invitation sets.  They include everything from the invite and enclosure cards, wedding menus, programs and even thank yous.  You can even match your wedding website!!  Really, they have thought of everything!

You guys, the options are endless!  They've even recently rolled out a new clear collection, seal & send invitations, added rose gold to their foil line, and introduced foil place cards!  We had a blast spending some time on their website and customizing a few designs of our own.  One more amazing perk, Basic Invite allows you to order samples of your card before you even have to place your final order!

In full disclosure... this post was sponsored by Basic Invite though the opinions are our own.  We really are impressed!
