“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” We are certainly in the middle of the Christmas season, and enjoying all that comes along with it, but that’s not what I’m referring to! I’m also not talking about ski season, no matter what my husband may say… No, I am talking about ENGAGEMENT SEASON! As a photographer and huge fan of marriage in general, this is one of my favorite times of the year! It is so fun seeing couples take the first big step in their journies together by getting engaged! I remember it fondly, as it was just two years ago for my husband and me. There is nothing quite like the season of life where you get to call each other Fiance and celebrating the holidays as an engaged couple!
One of my favorite memories from this season of life was our engagement party! We had a big group of our closest friends come together to celebrate us and kick of the season of engagement. It was so fun! While we invited our friends with an online invitation, I have recently been absolutely obsessed with these shabby and chic engagement invites from Basic Invite. There is something so nostalgic and wonderful about getting a piece of mail, something that is often lost in this day and age. They have so many different varieties of these invitation that can fit your personal style, the style of your engagement party, and more! You can even set the tone by using some of your future wedding colors, if you’re way ahead of the game and have those picked out like I did!
One of my personal favorite engagement invitations is the Simple Outline Foil Engagement Party Invitation. As a photographer, I love how you can include one of your beautiful engagement photos and show everyone your lovely faces! I also love how you can select your foil color on the invitation to give it your own personal touch. If you know me, you know I’m all about the rose gold!
Basic Invite as a whole offers so many different things, invitations and beyond! They are one of the few websites that offer almost unlimited color options and instant previews on their website! They also have 40 envelope colors and will send you a custom printed sample of your invitation before you order, so that you can make sure you are getting the perfect invitation. Need a wedding website? They’ve got that covered too! Basic Invite is an awesome place to host your wedding website to make sure all of your guests are on the same page for your engagement party, wedding and beyond!
