As you know, we're pretty big fans of paper here at Bridal Musings.
As a couple, there's nothing quite like the excitement of stamping your wedding invitations and sending them off in the post (no going back now!). And as a guest there's something so special about the weight of the paper landing in your post box, and a sneak peak of what your friends or loved-ones have in store for their big day.
So, when we were asked to team up with Basic Invite to share some wedding invitation inspiration, and chat a little about the endless options they have for your big day stationery, we were more than eager.
A quick browse through their site, and we reckon you'll be just as smitten with their gorgeous paper goods as we are!
What strikes you when you first look at the Basic Invite website is simply the selection on offer.
They have a wealth of designs for every kind of wedding – think the Black Tie Collection for an elegant affair, sweet kraft paper designs for something a little more rustic, preppy stripes for a spring wedding or photo invites for a truly customised look.
Basic Invite is also one of the only invitation creation sites that offers you almost unlimited colour options across their collection.
Pretty exciting right?
That means, no matter which design you fall in love with, you'll be able to adapt it to suit the look and palette of your big day. With over 160 different colour options, you can tweak every last detail from background tones to font colours and instantly see the results.
I played around with different hues on this beautiful botanical invitation, and lets just say, it gets SO ADDICTIVE! (And I considered myself quite the artist when I was finished!).
I really have never seen an online stationery source that can create such a bespoke look, so effortlessly. It's very cool!
And they don't just keep the kaleidoscope to the invitations.
Basic Invite offer 40 different colours for envelopes, so you can really tailor the look of your wedding stationery from the moment it lands in the postbox.
Oh and FYI, Basic Invite's envelopes are peel and seal, so they can be quickly and securely closed. And take it from someone who knows, if you've ever licked 60 envelopes in a row, it's not the most pleasant wedding task – give me a cake tasting any day!
I love that Basic Invite pride themselves on paper quality (as someone who appreciates a good card stock!).
Basic Invite allow you to order printed samples of your custom invitations so you can see, (and feel) exactly how they will print before you bulk order.
And when it comes to your wedding needs, Basic Invite offers more than just invitations.
Each of their designs is part of a wedding set (they have over 200 to choose from!), which means it comes with a matching Save the Date, RSVP cards, wedding menus, ceremony programs and Thank You cards. (They've also got the coolest bridal shower stationery too!)
So, once you find a design you love, (and have played around to find the perfect colours to suit your day) you can order your entire suite, and have all your paper needs sorted, in one go.
There's nothing you appreciate more when wedding planning than convenience!
Oh and be sure to look out for their pocket invitations too, for a chic way to assemble all your wedding invite, information and RSVP cards together.
A Few Of Our Favourite Invitation Sets
So, now that we've told you about some of our favourite features of the Basic Invite service, we figured we'd share some of our favourite invitation sets in their collection too.
It was hard to choose but here are just a few of the prettiest picks from the site!
So many different styles! Oh I love the warm yellow hues of the last one, but those botanical invitations are really unusual (maybe I'd combine the two!) Which are your favourites? Don't forget to pin them!
