Nothing makes my heart beat a little bit faster than a military wedding: there’s something about the tradition and the well-deserved pomp and circumstance that makes my eyes water, and this winter wedding from one of our favorites, Jennifer Larsen, is proof of just that. Daria + Matt’s February wedding at West Point and Highlands Country Club are all of our favorite things rolling into one: romantic, elegant and eternally classic. From bold color palette and service dress, to the historic church and guest appearance of their sweet puppy, Daisy, we can’t stop swooning!Read More
If you're secretly dreaming of cozy sweaters and pumpkin season, this gorgeous wedding will certainly send you into overdrive! We're thrilled to share this epic day from the one and only, Jennifer Larsen Photography, and friends, we know you'll love it as much as we do! Ashley + Kyle's fall wedding at Basking Ridge Country Club was classic and sweet, with splashes of color and the prettiest fall decor. From the emerald green bridesmaid dresses and pumpkin escort cards, to the soft and romantic makeup and the blush-toned bouquets, every last detail was planned to perfection. Our favorite part though, is the way these two look at one another. When years of friendship turn into love, something magical happens!Read More
Wedding stationery is the often the very first introduction to your wedding day. Whether you believe it or not, your guests can tell so much about about your wedding just from opening the envelope (or if you're like us, before you even open the envelope). The world of wedding stationery is often intimidating, but it doesn't have to be.
We've partnered with Basic Invite to share wedding stationery for every style and budget and couple, and we promise you will not be disappointed. With hundreds (literally, hundreds) of options to customize every design - colors, fonts, shapes and envelopes) - you will absolutely find something that you love!
We had the opportunity to order, and receive, customized samples before writing this review, and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. For those of you that don't know, we're paper people. BIG TIME. Quality is king in our world, and we're obsessive about paper stocks, inks and design. We're those people who save every wedding invitation that arrives in our mailbox, and 100% know which weddings will be stunning simply because of the quality and care of put into their wedding suite. So when we say we viewed these samples with discerning eye, we mean it.
From the completely user-friendly site to the breath of selection, here are few of our favorite things about Basic Invite!
ONE | Custom Samples
You can order customized samples of every single design. Not just a digital proof with your information... a physical sample, on the paper of your choice, in colors you choose, with no limit to how many you want to see. Wedding stationery is an investment, and getting to see your design, in-person before buying? Priceless.
TWO | Selection
Save-the-dates, Bridal Shower Invitations, Wedding Invitations, Baby Showers, Birth Announcements, Holiday Cards... Basic Invite has something for every occasion, style and budget. Their wedding invitations alone have over 200 choices, and each has a coordinating set of menus, programs and thank-you cards. The most time consuming part of it all is narrowing down your favorites!
THREE | Colors + Papers
Basic Invite proudly offers over 180 colors to choose from, including gold and silver foil, with unlimited combinations available. And not only are the colors options incredible, but the quality of the color is impeccable. Even dark backgrounds (navy, dark grey + black) printed beautifully. In your sample pack, you receive a swatch of each paper stock available (including the Luxe Velvet, which is as incredible as it sounds), as well as color chart to compare with other wedding items you may have already purchased!
