Choosing The Perfect Wedding Invitation Suite


When you first get engaged and start planning your wedding, you’re likely to already have an idea about what flowers you want and what your dress will look like. Invitations, on the other hand, typically aren’t top of mind, but they do play an important role in your wedding! Other than serving their obvious purpose of informing your guests of the event, your invitation suite is the first impression they will have of your big day by giving them a glimpse of the style or theme you’re going for. (No pressure!) Furthermore, choosing the perfect save-the-dates and invitations that match your style and the theme of your wedding can make for the most stunning detail shots when paired next to your rings and florals. I absolutely love when my brides bring a copy of their invitations to photograph!

Invitations sure have changed a lot in recent years, and there are more options than ever. Still looking for the perfect invitations? Allow me to introduce a fabulous option! Basic Invite is your one-stop shop for all things invitations, announcements, thank you cards, and more! Seriously – they have everything! Vintage, modern, classic, rustic, pink, blue, green, silver, gold… Basic Invite is one of the few websites out there that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. I have personally ordered from them and was really impressed, not only by how easy it was to navigate their website and find exactly what I was looking for, but also by how much control I had over the final product. They even allow you to customize your envelopes with over 40 different color options for the perfect first impression right out of your mailbox.

Once you find the perfect style, you’re set – literally! Basic Invite has over 800 wedding invitation sets. You can find everything from save-the-dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and matching thank you cards! They even have matching bridal shower and rehearsal dinner invitations for a completely consistent look from start to finish!

Wait, rehearsal dinner invitations…? Yes! Make sure to give all of your out of town guests a formal rehearsal dinner invitation as it follows proper wedding etiquette. Plus, sending a formal invitation ahead of time will give your guests an advanced notice as opposed to calling them a few days ahead of time. Rehearsal invites are also great because it clarifies who is invited to the rehearsal dinner rather than assuming your VIP guests know to show. Invite your closest family and friends plus your wedding party to celebrate the night before! Having a rehearsal dinner party gives both sides of the wedding party a chance to mingle and get comfortable with one another. That way everyone involved in the wedding can become acquainted under less nerve-wracking circumstances, and you can get a head-start on your wedding celebrations!
