Happy weekend! We're only a couple weeks away from being able to say 365 days until our wedding!! This past year of engagement has flown by, but it has also made the planning process so much easier and care free since we have so much time to nail down the details. One thing I was so excited to start looking into was our paper goods - save the dates, invitations, menus, etc. As I was looking at different vendors I found myself either having to stay within the box in terms of their "collections" or either needing to go completely custom. I then received an email from Basic Invite wanting to collaborate and it was the perfect mix of already built templates and customization!
What I loved most about Basic Invite was that I could order custom samples of anything and see exactly what I was getting without having to commit to a full order. Kollin and I designed from a few templates, put our personal touches on them and ordered the samples to see them in person! It was so surreal seeing them in front of us and thinking about people receiving them next year.
We stuck to the save the dates for most of the samples we ordered given that we will start there, but also included an invitation, some envelope options and even thank you cards.
We loved their foil options, the almost unlimited color options for envelopes and the option to preview your design in real time. One of their new collections is called the clear collection! I thought it was so unique that I had to order a sample and see it for myself. While we probably won't be using this for our actual save the dates, we definitely want to incorporate it into some paper good at the wedding - maybe menus?!
One of the best parts about this service is how fast the samples were made and shipped out to us. We designed, ordered and received everything within a week! Obviously, a full order could take some time longer, but everything was so fast and we were so happy working with the Basic Invite team! Planning a wedding can be so stressful and Basic Invite creates an easy, tangible process for their customers that was so helpful to us in making decisions for paper goods. I can't wait to keep collaborating with them and show you all the final save the dates later this year!
Be sure to check out their site for any other paper good needs you have like a birthday party, baby/bridal shower, stationery or even their free wedding website service! Use code "15FF51" for 15% off your order!
Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!
