I am absolutely SHOOK by Basic Invite. The quality is amazing, the variety is incredible, and the customer service is outstanding. I’m very picky with who I recommend as vendors to my couples as I only want the best for them. So, I’m overjoyed to heavily recommend this amazing company. I wanted to tell you about three fantastic options they have for Save the Dates!
This is the classic save the date that everyone knows and loves with a fresh twist. They are extremely customizable! They basically have unlimited colors (that you can instantly preview online), which is already a big deal and very different than other stationary companies. Ranging anywhere from the fads to the good-old classics, to trendy or traditional, they have a design for you that you can customize every single detail of. And I know, because they have over 900 wedding invitation sets. So, no matter what your style is, you’ll be able to find a perfect fit. And DUH, look at these amazing clear invitations (they come in frosted, too)! I can’t get over it.
I know what you’re thinking: ugh, Christie, doing save the dates is a lot of extra work. Not if you go through Basicinvite! They’ve made this CRAZY easy on busy brides and grooms because they understand you got a lot on your plate. They have a free address collection service! You can use their free collection service with just three, super simple steps: share a link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. FREE ENVELOPE PRINTING?! How did I not know of this place when I was getting married? This would have saved me so much time, y’all.
Let’s talk envelopes. You can go with classic white if you want, but you don’t have to! They have over 40 different colors of envelopes available! If you want to make a statement before your future wedding guests even open your invite, this is one of the fun ways to do it! Also, pro-tip: get the peel and seal so you don’t have to lick anything. Basicinvite.com kept that in mind and all of their invites are made to peel and seal and ready to go!
I personally LOVE this idea! If you want something unique, fresh, and different, this is a fantastic idea for you. Many of my brides have lots of family traveling in for their weddings and choose to send Save the Dates to all their guests several months before their formal invitations are sent out. Getting the word out early is never a bad idea (especially if travel needs to be planned), and making postcards is such a fun way to get your guests involved from the get-go!
Again, they have hundreds of designs to choose from, and they are all extremely customizable—your font choice, sizing, unlimited color, and more will have your guests surprised and excited. These postcards are dope.
I saved the best for last, guys. These are one of the best ways to let family and friends know your wedding date and keep it there for a while. It can be easy to toss an invite into the garbage by accident (I know I’ve done it), but it’s a lot harder when it’s on your fridge, garage door, office filing cabinet, etc., and you see it every single day. Plus, you know your grandma is going to keep that for life on her fridge. I wish I had known about these when I was planning my wedding–I would have swooped them up in a heartbeat!
Since you typically don’t have engagements done before sending out the save-the-dates, you don’t need a picture of the two of you if you don’t have it! They have beautiful designs that are already ready to go with a couple tweaks or two if you want them. But if you do happen to have your engagement pictures taken already, it’s easy to upload them into the design and do it that way!
They essentially look exactly like an invitation or regular save the date, but with a magnet on the back. It’s easy, pretty, and unique. What a way to stand out!
And just because I love bonus rounds, here’s a bonus reason I love Basic Invite:
FREE WEDDING WEBSITES.
Yes, folks. No crazy coding, no complicated features, no frustrations–it’s all quick, easy, customizable, and mobile friendly!
Having a wedding website is getting more and more important in this tech-age. Basic Invite knows this, and understands that a lot of people (especially myself—let’s be real) don’t really know how to create an amazing wedding website and honestly, don’t have the time to. It’s not hard or time consuming–simply upload all your wedding details, images, and even maps with directions for your guests that instantly puts everything at their fingertips. You can choose from 180 custom colors and design suites to match your wedding invitations, too! Consistency is always cool.
If I haven’t convinced you yet, take a look for yourself. You won’t be sorry. As always, I want to keep it simple, keep it real, and keep it you. Basic Invite allows you to do just that, and it’s a pleasure to send you over to them—I know you’ll be in good hands.
