It’s officially Engagement Season here! Well, if you haven’t already noticed from Social Media announcements, a large number of couples get engaged around he holidays! From Thanksgiving all the way through Valentines Day our email is flooded with couples planning their weddings. Something about being with family and cozying up by the fire just makes us all want to make it official. One of our favorite details during this time is seeing all of the special Save the Dates & Custom Wedding Invitations being sent out. Everyone loves getting something in the mail, especially when it’s not bills! There is just something about holding a tangible invitation in a digital world.
This favorite detail carries over on the wedding day as well. Of course our favorite part of the wedding day is the first look between our couples…but the second is shooting the details. We love seeing your stationery details and how it’s unique to each couple. I always start the day off shooting the stationery set, rings, shoes, gown & various other details. We love this moment to set the tone of the day and the mood of how we shoot. We try to incorporate these tones and details throughout the day to make everything cohesive. We have learned that this piece of your wedding not only sets the tone of the day letting your guests know the venue, date, and details but also the style. It sounds like a lot but it doesn’t have to be stressful. Basic Invite makes everything so easy and affordable! Not only do they have over 1000 Wedding Invitation Sets but they also offer Free Wedding Websites (which match your invitation set!!!) as well as Free Address Collection Services. Seriously…why didn’t they have this when I got married?! You just simply share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. How amazing is that?!?
We have had several couples choose Basic Invite & we have been so blessed to work with their amazing team. They literally make designing a beautiful set so easy! From high quality papers, Seal & Send, to Clear & Frosted or my personal favorite REAL WOOD invitations. What’s extra special about the Seal & Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design, instantly. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple, easy, and super trendy. I personally love that 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. They have something for EVERYONE. Please check them out and see what they can create for you! Just make sure and contact me for a special 20% discount code! We love to treat our couples with special rates.
