Michigan Wedding Photographers | Pro tip! The best place for wedding invites

 

I hope wedding planning is coming along super smoothly and you marking things off your to do list left and right. Venue- Check, Photographer and Videographer -Check (hopefully we’ve filled that spot for you!), Flowers-Check and so on. As you check off each of your large vendors I’m sure you feel a sense of relief, I know I did when I was planning my wedding.

Once I started to check off the big things I found myself focusing on the smaller things. Cake, place cards, decor. One area I felt truly overwhelmed with my wedding invites. I tried going into local print shops but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Either they were outdated or  I couldn’t customize them to my liking. Then I tried it DIY route. Since I have a background in digital art I tried making them myself (ugh! This was a nightmare!). I tried ordering samples of online vendors but I couldn’t get something that was custom to show me how our names and info fit. I was struggling hard!

Long story short my experince was poor and while I did get invites that I was happy with I wish I would have known about Basic Invite. Its like Basic Invite took all my woes and made a brand just for me (I am guessing I’m not the only bride who had these issues).

Things I love about Basic Invite-

  1. Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. Umm forreal where was this when I was planning?! You can start your own sample Marriage Invite
  2. Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost 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. AND  envelopes to match.  Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with our invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes so you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. I don’t know about you but for me choosing the outside was just as important as choosing what went in it.
  3. Over 800 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set (SUPER EASY RIGHT?!). You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards! AND they just rolled out their new floral wedding invitation, clear collection, added rose gold to our foil line, and introduced foil place cards! 
  4. Free Address Collection Service AND Wedding websites! – Okay so this might be the best part of Basic Invite. They have a feature that allows you to ask for addresses AND they will print them on the  envelope for you. FOR FREE!  Did I just save you a couple hours of writing address, yes I did. You’re welcome. Also, don’t forget about their custom wedding websites with RSVP!

I hope you guys enjoyed this pro tip, Happy planning!
