Basic Invite

Wedding days are crazy busy. I ask my clients to put aside any details they'd like photographed so I can get them done without having to run around to every member of the wedding party like a scavenger hunt. Don't get me wrong, I love a good scavenger hunt, but there's probably something better going on that I could be photographing. One detail that many couples forget is a copy of their invitation. Look at these pretty paper products from Basic Invite! Why would they not be included in the detail shots?!

The details are important because they reflect you. They mean something to you. You spent time picking them out, or searching for them, or making them, or maybe someone in your family several years ago put them aside for safekeeping with the hope they could pass them on to you before they even knew you. Now obviously, the invitations can't be passed down. At the very least, the year has to be changed. So why not take that opportunity to create something unique?

When it comes to creating a wedding invitation online, I got you. Check out Basic Invite's huge variety of designs, colors, and materials, where you can easily create something beautiful and true to your style. I loved playing around on their site! If you see a design you like but doesn't match your color scheme, you can change all of the colors! You have over 180 color options! Oh and the fonts too! What?! Still having trouble seeing these in your wedding plan? You can create a preview by changing the type to your information! Oh man, it's starting to feel real right? Those are your names. On a creative wedding invitation. Still need to see it in your hands? Yeah ok, no problem. Order some samples! Order different paper types (may I suggest the luxe velvet?) and multiple designs! Getting these samples in the mail was way more exciting than I thought it would be, I mean they're not personal for me, I'm already married.
