How much thought have you put into your wedding stationary?
As event planners here at Blue Wings Events, we believe that simple wedding invitations will set the tone for the entire experience for your guests before the special day. Choosing invitations that compliment your wedding while keeping in mind the season, location and concept is very important. We understand that you might love the summer rustic outdoor invite, but for your winter snowy black tie wedding it just doesn’t set the mood for your guests. Scroll through your Pinterest and Instagram and then do the same with the Basic Invite Website to see what connects, but remember you can customize your colors later with Basic Invite, giving you a cohesive look from start to finish.
Customizing your Invite Suite
We have learned through the years of planning weddings that utilizing a company like Basic Invite will make choosing a theme that matches your entire wedding simple! You can get a free wedding websites that will match with the theme of your stationary, along with customizing your save the dates, invitations, envelopes and don’t forget simple thank you cards. Another benefit of utilizing a stationary service such as Basic Invite, is they include over 40 different colors of envelopes and over 900 wedding invitation sets.
One thing we value as planners and you should too, is that before you commit to a specific package, they will send a sample of your chosen invitation so you can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before you place your final order. We also highly recommend that you order everything at once to ensure that all colors will be cohesive; however, Basic Invite also offers a date changing service in case you need to move the date of your wedding last minute.
Addressing your Invites
A bonus in using a service like Basic Invite is they will make addressing envelopes simple by allowing you to send in your invitees names and addresses through their free address collection service and address the envelopes for you. Or to make this simple process even simpler, consider the seal and send wedding invitations. The Seal and Sends are a nice option since the guests’ addresses are printed on the front of each invitation, so no envelope is necessary and the RSVP cards are included! Whichever option you chose, a be it simple wedding invitations or the seal and send wedding invitations all that will be left for you to do is to stamp and send out your ready to mail invitations!
While choosing stationary may be just one wedding planning detail of many, it allows for you as a couple to bookend your celebration by showing your guests what to expect before they arrive and thanking them at the end for attending.
