The First Impression: Wedding Stationery from Basic Invite

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is the quiet time that I have when I first arrive to style details. Yep. You read that right. It's not necessarily the first dance or the first kiss that make me giddy. It's those calm, quiet moments while the bride is finishing hair and makeup where I style and shoot her precious details. 

Sitting down and carefully capturing the rings, the bouquet, the jewelry and the other special little items gives me time to really absorb what my couple is all about. Her choice of shoes. Her grandmother's bracelet. Her mom's veil. The wedding band that she picked out for herself. It all allows me to have a window into the bride's soul. I can feel what she is all about as I hold that heirloom bracelet. 

But the invitation suite... that is my favorite. It's the piece that tied her entire wedding day together. It's the first taste that her guests got of what this once-in-a-lifetime day was going to be like. Now here it is, on the wedding day, styled with her other accessories. Full circle. 

Invitation suites tell us so much about a wedding. They set the entire tone. And Basic Invite hits it out of the park when it comes to paper goods. Your wedding invitations and paper goods play such an important role in tying together your day in a pretty little bow. 


There are a lot of online wedding stationery companies that brides can turn to. However, unless you're using a custom stationery design studio, it feels like you're making compromises. But Basic Invite has a lot of things that set them apart and combat that problem! You no longer have to choose between a suite that fits your style and a suite that fits your colors and design. 

Personally, I love that you can order completely custom samples so you can see exactly how your suite will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place the final order. Think... you don't want to have 100 invitations that you decide that you don't love. 

And... if you know anything about me, you know I love color. Gimme all the colors. 
Basic Invite allows you to create your invitations in virtually 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. On top of that, there are over 40 different envelope colors available. WHAT!?!? Obsessed. 


They also have really precious keepsake wedding guest books, placecards, programs, bachelorette and bridal shower paper goods, menus and stickers. 

They also just launched their clear wedding invitations and TBH, I wish these had existed when I got married! They're so beautiful!
