As a bride to be, we know you have a lot on your plate. There are so many decisions to make, options to choose from, and only so much time to get it all done! So, where do you begin? After you’ve set a date, venue, and reserved your top vendors, like photography, your next item on the to do list is wedding invitations. Your wedding invitations are the first impression guests will receive about your wedding day. These invitations inform guests of more than just when and where your wedding is happening. They also indicate the style of your wedding, appropriate attire, and overall feel. It can be overwhelming knowing just where to begin when it comes to creating the perfect invitation suite. That’s why we have teamed up with Basic Invite to share some wedding invitation ideas and inspiration with you!
Your first decision when it comes to choosing your wedding invitations is to pick a style. Do you prefer modern or traditional? Do you want to include photos or just an elegant font? What fits the style of your wedding? Recently, floral wedding invitations have become increasingly popular, and we are all for it. Not only can you tie in the wedding colors of your day with Basic Invite’s 180 completely customizable colors, the card can be exactly how you want it, down to the smallest detail. Once you have customized every color and detail of your wedding invitation to your liking, you can preview it instantly online.
When talking about first impressions, the true first impression of a wedding invitation is the envelope! Don’t let your invitation blend in with a pile of bills and mail. Pick a color that ties into your wedding day. You can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes for your invitation suite from Basic Invite. Not to mention, I will love using that pop of color for your invitation flatlay in your wedding photos!
Once you have customized your invitations to your liking, it’s time to order a sample to see it in person. While the internet is amazing, we all know it’s not the same as feeling and seeing something in your own hands. Before you place your full order, you can order a sample invitation to make sure everything is just as you want it. Take it from me, be sure to have someone else look over your invitations to check for details, spelling, and ensure everything is accurate.
After you’ve ordered your wedding invitations, it’s time to set up your wedding website! Basic Invite provides beautiful, free wedding websites that are convenient for sharing details and match your wedding invitations! This is a great place to share photos from your gorgeous engagement session, a little bit about your story, and wedding details with your guests. Not only that, your wedding website is a great place to collect and track your RSVPs from guests.
