One of the most exciting parts for this design-minded girl (Breck) was dreaming up and creating all the pieces for my wedding, shower, and website. I’m pretty picky, so I knew exactly what I wanted, how I wanted it to look, and what it would take to get it designed. Using my graphic design skills, I whipped up a cohesive stationery set and website that made my heart swoon. It was a perfect addition to our special day and set the tone for each of our events before guests ever arrived.
Stationery suites and your wedding website are important because they’re the first taste of your shower or special day guests will encounter. It’s important that your designs match the formality and theme of your wedding – including all events from start to finish. For instance, if you’re having a black tie affair, it’s probably best to leave the burlap and mason jars off all your invites. Likewise, don’t use a font or design that looks too fancy for a casual, afternoon couples shower.
Now, I know not everyone is design savvy or paper obsessed, so that’s why we’ve teamed up with our friends at Basic Invite to help make what can be an overwhelming process a little easier for couples planning their wedding (and every event in between!) They’ve got a little bit of everything to help you plan parties, weddings, showers, and beyond. So let’s get started with a few of our FAVORITE picks from their website!
An important aspect of modern day weddings is a couple’s website. Guests love the ability to get online and check details wherever they are, and couples love the ease a website provides when tracking RSVPs, contact information, and showcasing their story and favorite memories. Basic Invite has an impressive collection of wedding websites with design suites that tie back to stationery sets offered on their website – perfect for a cohesive theme when planning your wedding “look!” Their mobile friendly websites will save couples time and money (did I mention it’s free??) with instant content uploads, attached resources like online maps to the venue, and tons of customization options.
Once your website is done, it’s time to send out save the dates and shower invitations with your website address attached. Basic Invite has bridal shower online invitations to suit every couple. Whether you want to upload your own design on their high-quality paper (with included peel-and-stick envelopes in tons of colors that include z-e-r-o licking… YES!) or will be choosing from their handcrafted selection of designs, there’s tons of great options. Basic Invite has almost unlimited colors, too, so no matter what your theme is, you’ll be able to carry it out throughout your website and stationery set and see it come together with instant previews on their site. We love the fun and flirty creations just as much as the airy, romantic invites, but most of all, love that you can easily create a stationery suite that flows seamlessly throughout your wedding.
There’s a lot going on during wedding planning, and we know that it can be overwhelming. That’s why you hire experts like our team to help you! Basic Invite is also doing their part to make wedding planning easier than ever with a million ways to reduce effort without cutting quality and style. Our brides LOVE ordering from Basic Invite because they offer custom samples to “try before you buy” and see your designs printed, as well as over 40 envelope colors, 900 invitation sets (that include everything from save-the-dates to thank you notes) and a free address collection service that requests guest addresses in just three simple steps: Share the link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.
Finally, if you’re like me and you’re a little too concerned about being one-of-a-kind, Basic Invite has new seal and send wedding invitations that are unique and creative. They’re an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! Guests addresses are printed on the front of each invite so you save extra envelopes and time when you receive and fold them, add postage, and send them out.
Are you obsessed yet? We are. Basic Invite is truly a favorite among our brides and we loved partnering with them to bring you the very best for your wedding day.
