As a wedding photographer one of my favorite parts of my job is when I get to photograph all of the wedding day details. There is just something so refreshing about designing the perfect flat lay that is unique to every bride and groom and being able to tie their color scheme and important little wedding items all together. Every wedding is so different and all of their little details really get my creative juices flowing because it is up to me to make sure that I am representing the couple perfectly in all of their final images based on the overall vibe they wanted their wedding to have.

Personally I believe that setting the scene for your wedding day starts with your save the dates. If you think about it, your save the dates are the first wedding detail that your guests are going to see from you. If they are poorly done, or give off a certain vibe that does not match your wedding day inspiration, that sets a standard in their minds for how your wedding day will be. BUT this does not mean that your save the dates have to be some crazy expensive, fine art stationary if that is not the look you are going for.

Save the dates (and all wedding details for that matter) should be on brand with who you are as a couple, and nothing else. And this is where Basic Invite comes in.

BasicInvite.com has everything you need to create all of the wedding stationary of your dreams. From traditional save the dates wedding, to save the date magnets cheap, and save the date postcards they literally can do it all. Plus they can totally be on brand to whatever kind of wedding aesthetic you have in mind. Even western vibes for all my fellow country girls out there.

But not only that, they also offer free wedding websites that are completely customizable and mobile friendly. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, images, and a map with directions to your venue for your guests. There are up to 180 colors to choose from as well as a design suite to match your wedding invitations! So if you are a little design OCD like I am, then this is perfect for you.

Basic Invite is also one of the few websites that allows their customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You are able to change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options and not to mention the card can be designed exactly how you want it even down to the tiniest details. Their customers also have the ability to order a printed sample of their invite so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order - which is pretty much unheard of and seriously good customer service.

If you love color then you will love Basic Invite because their envelopes are just as creative as their invitations! You can choose from over 40 different envelope colors so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened, ultimately setting an amazing standard for your wedding day if I do say so myself. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and easily for your convenience.

Basic Invite has over 900 wedding invitation sets to choose from. Each wedding invite is part of a set, and they have all the wedding stationery you need, such as save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards so that your entire wedding process from start to finish is a true representation of you and your wedding brand.

One of the coolest features in my opinion is their free address collection service. This allows you to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. No more late nights hand writing all of those names down. Phew!

And finally Basic Invite has a new feature that has been a total hit - the seal and send wedding invites. These are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included. They are currently offering them in over 30 designs including the super trendy foil options which are also totally customizable.

The Seal & Sends are unique because your guests addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! The only thing you have to do is share a link on social media or via email, collect your guests addresses, and upload them onto your design. Then, once you get your order in the mail you just have to add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker. It's seriously so simple (and fun!)

This company is a true definition of professionalism, excellent customer service and stunning products. You are sure to be satisfied with all that they have to offer no matter the occasion and have fun while creating beautiful, timeless stationary for your special day.

Make sure to check out Basic Invite on all of their social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
