I’m going to sound totally cliche saying this… but as a photographer I find details beautiful! Whether it’s a brides hand squeezing her dad’s tux during the father/daughter dance or a vase full of fresh flowers on a reception table…. I LOVE DETAILS! But i’m not the only one….
Images of wedding decor are easily the most Pinned and searched images by engaged couples JUST LIKE YOU! So when I photograph a wedding… I want to make sure I capture each and every one of those details that you’ve been working on for months!
So I make sure my timeline allows just the right amount of time for me to style my couples’ rings, flowers, ribbons, fabric swatches, and anything else that inspired their day! This makes my photographer heart so incredibly happy! What can I say… I like pretty things! #sorrynotsorry
But one of my VERY favorite details to photograph that is often left out is the invitation!
I love looking at the wording, the fonts, the colors, the texture, and the style that the couple has chosen to be the first representation of their day to everyone they know! So when Basic Invite invited me to partner with them, I knew it would be the perfect fit! Because not only are their products amazing… but they are giving my brides a discount! (Keep scrolling for some sample images and a discount code at the end!)
As a former bride and a current photographer, I’ll be the first to say that every detail of your day matters! It should say something! It should encompass who you are as a couple! And Basic Invite is the PERFECT place to find that!
I’m glad you asked! :)
My Day, My Way
One reason I love Basic Invite is because not only do they have over 900 Invitation sets… but their invitations are completely customizable. But not just the wording and fonts! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that gives their customers almost UNLIMITED COLOR OPTIONS with Instant Previews Online. And again, not just the font is custom colored, EVERY SINGLE ELEMENT of the design is customizable! Even the envelopes! Still not sure!?! Take advantage of their custom sample service! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their ACTUAL INVITATION! That way everything looks exactly how you want it— down to even the tiniest detail.

When’s the last time you opened up a wedding invitation and said “Wow!” Because if you order anything from Basic Invite that will certainly be the response but the following invitations REALLY caught my eye! BUT REALLY… You don’t want to miss this…
These are wooden invitations, ya’ll. Like REAL CHERRY WOOD! One Rustic, Elegant, Whimsical day coming RIGHT UP!
Or these save-the dates… THEY ARE CLEAR! You guys… nothing shouts elegance quite like this invitation!
Flowers are one of the main elements of most weddings. Flowers have the ability to brighten any room or venue and have the power to take a room from ordinary to extraordinary. Particular flowers convey particular emotions! One type of flower that has been showing up for many of my weddings is the sunflower! Sunflowers are the perfect summer flower and have always been a favorite among many brides.
The bright yellow petals are sunny and cheerful, while the dark centers add a touch of drama. And while sunflowers are the perfect complement to a rustic, country-themed wedding when they're skillfully paired with other flowers and greenery, they can also take on a much more formal look when paired with some cream colored stock blossoms!
But there are more ways to incorporate flowers into your wedding celebration than the traditional way! And one of those is through your invitations! These Bridal Shower Invitations Sunflower are the perfect way to tie together your wedding day with all the celebrations beforehand! Not to mention the matching Wedding Invitations! Their matching sets are the perfect way to string your bridal experience together from bridal shower to thank you card.
So, while they’re website doesn’t have an actual big, red easy button that we can push… it does make things as simple as possible! Basic Invite knows that Brides have a lot on their plate…. that’s why they offer products like these all-in-one send and seal wedding invitations. The RSVP can be easily detached and sent PLUS guest addresses are printed right on the front so envelopes aren’t needed! (WOOT, WOOT!)
However if the invitation you choose does require an envelope… don’t worry! You can use Basic Invite’s free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get FREE ENVELOPE PRINTING! (Can I get an Amen!?!?!)
One last thing…
When ordering your products, plan for a little extra shipping time (7-11 days). When my samples arrived they were packaged extremely well and looked PERFECT! Plus it came with a brochure that showed different color and foil options so you can see them side by side!
