Wedding Thank You Cards by Basic Invite for those hearing Wedding Bells

I am not going to lie. I have a secret Wedding Pinterest board that I regularly pin stuff in for, you know, inspiration when he puts a ring on it. Also, aside from stationery and cool eye shadow looks, a great majority of photos I have saved on Instagram are composed of wedding dresses and themed wedding parties. Of course, more than ten years ago I shared on this blog a dress that took my breath away I swore I would wear something similar to my wedding. I am sharing the photo here again so we can collectively gasp in awe.


SO. BEAUTIFUL.

Now we will not  be hearing wedding bells any time soon, but as a future hands-on bride-to-be I already (mostly) know my non-negotiables, like the invites and wedding thank you cards. The invite is very important as I believe it sets the tone for the rest of the wedding. I mean, I don't have anything against couples that exclusively invite guests through a Facebook Event, but as a stationery enthusiast I would absolutely say no to not having paper invites, printed on beautiful paper with names and details in beautiful cursive.

In the same way that the invite sets the tone for the wedding, the thank you cards sent to guests after the wedding will serve as a nice footnote for the event and rehashes the beautiful memories of a, hopefully, lovely night.

I have considered designing my own wedding suite from scratch, but I think letting other people help will save me a lot of time and turmoil. In this case, help comes in the form of a website, through Basic Invite.

Basic Invite is a website that allows customers complete customization power in designing their own invites. As opposed to other designing suites giving limited choices, Basic Invite actually gives their clients almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once they have selected a design, they can change the color of each element on the card to over 180(!!!) different color options so they can make sure the card is exactly how they want it down to the most minute detail.


Basic Invite is also one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a proofing copy --- a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order for multiple copies.


Customers can also choose from over 40 different colors for their [peel and seal] envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out before it even is opened.


Now here's an important feature that will save you a lot of time: Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Additionally, Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.

I have started foiling recently using my MINC Machine and I am in love with every output I have come up with so far. With Basic Invite, foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

For those who are still looking around, Basic Invite has free printables so you can try before you buy!

Ugh I want to get married and start designing my own invites, but until then, I guess I will be sticking with birthday cards for the time being. Hee.
