Wedding Planning: Casual Invitations or Black Tie?

 


Hello loves! I’ve been such a busy bee wedding planning lately and I’m so excited to share the progress I’ve made! I had no idea how much went into planning a wedding and I’m happy to say that David and I have finished a lot! Most recently, we’ve chosen our wedding invitations! I worked with Basic Invite to create gorgeous wedding invite samples for us to choose from and I’m so excited to share the process with you and a few perks of using Basic Invite!

Choosing the Look and Theme

We wanted something that would match the kind of wedding we were having. Basic Invite has more casual invitations as well as elegant black tie invitations. For our wedding, we knew we wanted something understated and elegant, so their black tie options were perfect!

However, several of the invites in their casual collection could be dressed up or down just with foil and font changes! They have over 900 wedding invitation sets to choose from that include save the dates, menus, programs etc. so you have a cohesive look! The invites I’m considering in the photo above can be totally customized to fit how casual your wedding is. Your invitations really need to give attendees a little peek into your wedding. It sets the scene so to speak!

Match Wedding Colors

Basic Invite has loads of colors to choose from for your invites. Our colors are simple- gold, navy, cream, and champagne. Naturally, I loved the gold foil you can add to the invites! You can even match envelopes to your colors which is really tempting. Whatever your chosen colors are, double check that your invites match up with them. Take advantage of being able to order custom samples of invites before putting in your final order!

Free Wedding Website to Match Invites

I haven’t started on our wedding website yet but Basic Invite offers totally customizable wedding websites that match your invitations. You can choose from 180 custom colors and upload all your wedding details along with photos and a map with directions for your guests. This weekend I’m going to get started on designing ours but I still need to firmly decide on the invitations we’re sending! I can’t decide they’re all so pretty!

Free Address Collection Service

I thought this was the coolest thing ever! You get a customized link to send to people that directs them to fill out their address and Basic Invite stores all of that info for you. When it comes time to send invites, they’ll print all the addresses on the envelopes for free! Boom! How easy is that?

They also offer Seal and Send casual invitations that include a tear off RSVP card attached to the wedding invite. All you have to do is choose your design, collect addresses, upload them onto your design, and then Basic Invite prints them and sends them to you to add postage.

Whatever invitations you decide you love for your wedding, I definitely recommend Basic Invite! I’m really excited to place my order and get this ball rolling. It’s starting to feel really real! Special thanks to Basic Invite for sponsoring this post!
