    Wedding Invitations Unique As You

    November 28, 2017

    When we first heard about Basic Invite, we couldn’t help but smile at the thought of sharing a new stationery brand with all of our future brides and grooms to-be (seriously, these photos make us want to get married again – or at least send out a few invites)! And don’t let the name fool you because their website is anything but basic. It’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll be able to create a one-of-a-kind wedding invite for your special day, which is why we’re most excited to be writing this post! Basic Invite allows you to be your own designer at your own pace. Keep reading to find out more about their new clear invitations and guestbooks.

    Since we’ve already been through the wedding planning process, we know how stressful this time in your life can be. Trust us, we get it. It’s an emotional roller coaster that can sometimes leave us wondering why we put ourselves through it all?! Anything we can do to help make the process easier for our engaged couples, we’re totally in for.

    The Vintage Botanical Wedding Invitation


    The Rustic Wreath Wedding Invitation

    Pick a color, any color. Basic Invite allows their customers to choose from unlimited color options with instant online previews. You can order any design in your chosen wedding colors and fonts, and even pick from a wide variety of paper types. Now, don’t get too overwhelmed with the options! If you end up liking a few different styles, and can’t make a decision, they’ll let you order as many samples as you’d like. We highly recommend ordering proofs before placing your final order because your design could possibly not turn out the way you had envisioned…so this step is key.

    Clear Wedding Invites

    If you’re one of our trendy brides, this next invite is for you! It’s called the clear wedding invitation collection. Say what?! Basic Invite just launched their brand new line of clear vinyl stock invites that can be sent via a regular envelope, and no additional postage needed! They use a special white ink to make the card stand out, so we know it’ll be like nothing your guests have ever seen before. Needless to say, we were pretty impressed with these invites. They’re gorgeous and we predict we’ll be seeing more and more of this trend next year.


    Keepsake Guest Books

    Let’s talk about guest books for a second. Now a days, it seems like brides are veering away from the standard guest book for their big day. However, we still love the idea of a traditional, keepsake book where your wedding guests can leave sweet words and well wishes. These books are customizable, and have a ring hidden inside which allows them to lay perfectly flat for a smooth and convenient look. You’ll be thankful for years to come to have such a special gift.


    If you take away one thing from this post, we hope it’s that you stay true to your style. Make your big day as unique as you are, and don’t settle for something if you don’t like it! Everything will turn out perfectly because it was chosen by you.
