I've got many reasons for adoring stationery. The paper's smooth texture invites you to hold it longer; the heavy weight says "You are quality, just like this notecard." Some pieces are so lovely, I've tacked them above my writing desk for inspiration. But most of all, I love the feeling of finding just the right collection, knowing the pretty pages will bring joy to my loved ones and extra sweetness to the messages I've tucked inside.
That's why it's okay to be choosy when looking for the right wedding invitation. You want something pretty and easy to work with, something that sets the tone for your wedding - without breaking the bank. Something that feels just as much a part of your wedding as your venue and flowers.
I recently discovered Basic Invite, an online-based invitation company that offers just that - hundreds of stylish, simple wedding invitations, all customizable, and each belonging to a stationery suite. So when you find your perfect invite at https://www.basicinvite.com, you can also order matching save the dates, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and customized thank you cards!
But what if an invite has the right artwork, but the wrong fonts or colors? Never fear! Basic Invite offers over 180 colors to customize your invitations - and over 40 colors for your envelopes! Just choose the exact shades and fonts you want, and order a free sample if you want to hold your invite before ordering a whole stack.
And speaking of envelopes, let's be honest - no one likes licking them and handwriting addresses 100 times. That's why Basic Invite's peel-and-stick envelopes allow you to print your guests' addresses directly onto the envelope. For. Free.
I know my environmentally conscious couples might be worried about envelopes and RSVP cards causing extra waste, so why not try a Seal & Send invitation? You get the same lovely impact of a traditional invitation, except these invites fold neatly into their own envelopes - and each RSVP card cleverly detaches from the invitation itself, with your return address already printed on the back. All you need to do is stick on the postage.
Want to provide guests with a digital RSVP option? Create a wedding website - for free! Basic Invite offers nearly 500 wedding-specific templates, so it's easy to find one that matches your invites. The templates are super simple to customize, mobile-friendly, and a great way for your guests to RSVP while keeping up with your wedding plans. Upload your engagement photos, wedding details, and a map with venue directions for your guests. You can even link your registries for those sweet, sweet gifts. (wink)
I am absolutely blown away by Basic Invite's fresh approach to a traditional wedding staple. As a stationery collector, I'm in love with their elegant designs. As a business owner, I'm impressed by their intuitive shopping experience. And as a wedding professional, I feel confident that these invites will make your wedding day not only simpler, but more beautiful.
