Every client I work with wants something unique for their wedding day that represents who they are. I think it’s so important to make sure that your day represents the two of you! This can take shape in a lot of different details from flowers to cake flavors but one of my favorite ways is with stationery. Your save the dates and invitations are the first things guests see about your upcoming wedding; you want to wow them from the start! To help you find the best way to showcase who you are as a couple, we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite brands, Basic Invite, to share how you can create all the personalized items to fit your wedding perfectly.
Designing your wedding stationery is pretty fun but one thing that isn’t fun is collecting all those addresses. Instead of sending emails or texts to all your loved ones, Basic Invite offers an easy 3-step process with their Free Address Collection Service to do it for you! Basically you share a link with loved ones, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. Umm, yes please! How easy is that?!
Another question that I always get asked is “Do we NEED a wedding website?” I always suggest it to couples so they can put all the information for the wedding in one place. Trust me, people will have a million questions for you and it’s nice to respond with, “Oh, that’s a great question, it’s on our wedding website at….” Wedding websites can also help save you some money by not needing to print RSVP cards with your invites, just send them to your site. Wedding websites on Basic Invite are free and are completely customizable. The wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can even instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. They have over 180 custom colors to choose from and designs to match your invitations.
Lastly, another great service that they offer is their Seal & Send Wedding Invitation Line. To keep the process super simple and easy, it’s an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send line is their newest collection and couple’s are LOVING them! You can pick from over 30 designs including their ever-popular foil options. And like their other products, they are also customizable. What’s extra special about their Seal & Sends is that the 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 instantly upload them onto your design. Once you receive your order simply add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker. Simple, easy, and super trendy.
