Basic Invite | Casual Wedding Invitations


It’s that time of year again! Wedding season is in full swing and I am not only busy photographing weddings every weekend but I am currently planning for my own wedding next Spring!

The last 5 months have flown by but I have enjoyed every step of the way. From dress shopping, choosing florals, to my stationary and wedding website! It has all been such a fun journey.

If we are being honest, I was very nervous going into all of it. Its hard for me to make up my mind when it comes to the little details. There are so many options and SO many decisions to make. You look up invitations on Pinterest and before you know it every ad across your Instagram and Facebook is advertising a new company to buy from. Eeek! It got to a point where I was looking at wedding websites, buying domain names, talking on Etsy with custom stationary designers who were way out of my budget... It got overwhelming and the nerves started to set in fast. Is this how planning is for everyone? Is this how the entire year ahead of me is going to look? In the big picture, this was a very small portion of an entire wedding I needed to plan!


It wasn’t until I came across Basic Invite that my thoughts on planning changed. Basic Invite was not only a one-stop-shop for all my unique & casual invite needs,  but also provided free wedding websites too?! From save the dates, casual wedding invitations, websites, all the way down to placards… they had it all! I knew once I found them no more time was going to be wasted searching to piece all these small details together. Everything I would need for my wedding stationary + more, was doable from one company! 

I was most excited about being able to customize my colors. I didn’t have to worry about a design I liked not coordinating with my wedding colors… you have the ability to customize every color way in every design they offer. If you ask me, they are doing it right!  

A few other great features that really made my decision making so much easier was that I could coordinate my wedding stationary and website together. This was a huge plus for me because i really wanted everything to be coherent and match for the big day (+ their website template options are endless.) Almost unlimited colors, over 40 different colors of envelopes, over 900 wedding invitation sets, free address collection service, seal & send wedding invitations and lastly… custom samples with your names, photos, and colors (you can even sample your entire wedding suite)! Basic invite will send you samples so if you’re someone like me who loves to see the finished product in real life… this is for you!

There really is a little something for everyone from Basic Invite. If you want to give them a try for yourself make sure to use the code below…

I hope this helps you and your wedding planning as much as it has helped me and mine. The options are endless, the prices can’t be beat and the quality truly is beautiful.

As always, if you have any questions I am always here to chat…all things wedding, photography and everything in between!
