Let's talk about your wedding invite's

We all know. at this point that planning a wedding is HARD. There are so many things to focus on, so much money is spent, and it is easy to get stuck in the stress whirlwind that comes with planning. One of the smaller yet most important items on that list is your invitation suite!

The first thing your guests see in relation to your wedding is USUALLY your save the date and/or formal invitation that is mailed over to them. This will list the date, your and your partner's names, location, etc. It's an important document that will likely live on their fridge until their wedding! The invitations will set the tone for your entire wedding being the first impression that your guests are getting. If you are planning a romantic garden party, you aren't going to use Save The Dates with red solo cups on them, ya know?

As a wedding photographer myself, the very first thing I do when I arrive at your wedding is gather all of your details and photograph them together! This list includes your rings, jewelry. perfume, shoes, annnnnnnnd your invites! This is one of my favorite parts of the day because I get to focus on being creative with what's given to me, and it so fun to see how everything ties together on the day of. The color of your font can match your bridesmaids dresses, you can have your city's skyline on the cover of your save the date, the water color details can match the live painter that you hire for your wedding.

I was lucky enough to partner up with Basic Invite in order to photographer and share some of their wedding invite template's and their save the date template's! I had SO much fun picking out a few samples and getting to customize pretty much every last detail. They are one of the fe online invitation stores that allows you to hand select from almost unlimited color options with accurate previews on your screen. You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options. The biggest thing that sets them apart from other companies is the fact that their cards are almost fully customizable while still being priced affordably. You are also welcome to order a customized sample prior to your full order, just to make sure you love every detail in person! You are also able to choose from 40 different envelope colors to match your invitations. The envelopes are huge time savers since they have a peel and stick method, rather than licking each envelope and praying you dont get a paper cut on your tongue.

The best part of using Basic Invite is the fact that each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. They have everything you could possibly need including save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards!
