The Customized Stationery I Wish I Knew About Before Our Wedding


Everyone knows I love putting together a good party. From the planning to the custom details & decor, I live for it. The first step in setting the tone for your event: the invite.

Back when we were planning our wedding (5 years ago, AKA forever), I was disturbed at how hard it was to find our exact wedding colors on a decent looking invitation. Not only that, but on most of the sites we viewed, you could only stick with the designated colors, font, & wording on the sample. NO THANKS.

Enter Basic Invite.

What a breath of fresh air. Your one stop shop for marriage invitations, personalized engagement cards, & the BEST rehearsal dinner invitations. Remember how I struggled finding our wedding colors with a reasonable design? Basic Invite has almost unlimited color choices with an instant preview online. You can even order a custom sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print before you have to place your final order.

Something I’ve come to loathe about invites? Licking the envelopes. Blah. All Basic Invite envelopes are peel & seal. I will say it again for the people in the back, PEEL & SEAL. Quickly and securely close these babies up and get them on their way. Want to make your invitation stand out before it’s even opened? Pick one of their 40 different colors for envelopes to really make a statement.

One trend I feel like I missed out on was asking our bridal party to join us on the biggest day of our lives, in the most extra way possible. Personalized champagne glasses, mini bottles of booze, & a color coordinated card. Peep this cute arrangement!


The possibilities here are truly endless. A couple other things I feel I have to mention:

  • Basic Invite just released their line of clear invites. Think your favorite acrylic chairs & accessories, but in invitation form. CHIC. I’m already picturing one of their clear suites underneath a bed of pressed flowers or colorful confetti.
  • Continuity is key with any great event. Create a free wedding website with Basic Invite, completely customizable to match your wedding invitations.
  • Rose. Gold. Foil. Get it on your marriage invitations, place cards, engagement cards, or thank you’s.
  • Have I mentioned Basic Invite is a one stop shop? Grab your invitations & enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, & even matching thank you cards on their site.

Excuse me while I begin to plan our 10 year vow renewal just so I can get my hands on this gorgeous stationery.
