Deciding upon Stationery for your Wedding is Important

Details like wedding rings, engagement ring, other jewelry she’ll be wearing, gown, shoes, bouquet, and the family heirlooms (think something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue) like a bride’s grandmother’s handkerchief or ring – something that bride will wear or carry with her walking down the aisle.  And let’s not forget the invitation suite. I’ll have my bride have all of the details ready in the Bridal suite where she is getting ready, as that’s the first thing I photograph when I arrive on a wedding day. (Read more about how to prepare for my arrival here!)

It’s a big deal!

Picking wedding invitations is a big deal.  You want them to capture the color/theme of your wedding and also your personality.  Do you want them to be simple or extravagant, casual or formal, a suite or a single invite?  The great thing about getting married these days is that you get to choose what you want to do.  These days, there really aren’t any rules, so do what makes sense for you two!

Recently I found an invitation company that I love called Basic Invite.  I’ll list the reasons why I love it below. I was fortunate enough to design my own invitation on their website, and y’all, it is SO easy! I selected one of their all in one invite.  It folds into the invitation but has everything in one foldable invite, including the reply card!! I just loved it! I was really impressed with the texture of the one I ordered. It was like velvet to the touch and found myself touching it over and over again while photographing it.


And bonus, when you are done, you can create a website for your wedding that matches your invitation suite! My heart be still! It’s so exciting to get the exact look and feel that matches your invites!!

I am SO excited to introduce you to their brand today while listing the reasons why below. A quick disclosure before we get started: this post was sponsored by Basic Invite, though opinions are my own–Basic Invite really is that good!

Side note: Basic Invite also just recently launched a clear collection, added rose gold to their foil collection and introduced foil place cards… my heart!!

If you are looking for a quick and easy one-stop-shop for all of your wedding paper goods, Basic Invite is the place to go!


Reasons why I love this company and what they provide:

Almost Unlimited Colors

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes

Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets

Each of our wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!

Free Address Collection Service

Seal & Send Wedding Invitations (my new favorites)

Our Seal & Send Wedding Invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send lin is our newest collection and brides and LOVING them! Currently, we offer them in over 30 designs including our ever-popular foil options and like our other products are customizable. What’s extra special about our Seal & Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design, instantly. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple, easy, and super trendy.
