Creating a truly personalized experience for your wedding begins with paper and postage. Whether you’re looking for a rustic chic invitation suite, or a bohemian botanical save the date, truly personalized wedding stationery means you get to choose the colors, fonts, and design. I love Basic Invite because their website allows you almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you choose your design you can change the color of each element on the cards to more than 160 different color options. Your card will clearly reflect who you are and the theme you’re so excited to share with your guests.
After you have fun previewing all the gorgeous designs and colors, you’ll want to order a sample before you place that order for hundreds of invites. You can order a printed sample of your actual invitation with Basic Invite so you can see exactly how it will look and feel before moving forward with your order. Something I’d highly recommend so you don’t get any surprises.
I am in love with this vintage botanical floral invitation suite featuring poppies, violets, and magnolias! How gorgeous would this be for a summer garden wedding? You can literally change the colors of all of the flowers and details in this design (though I personally love how they look already), making it quite a fun experience!
Mark your calendar! These are the stationery milestones you should pencil in on your wedding timeline:
- 6 months prior to your wedding day you should have chosen your colors and ordered samples. You should also order save the dates about this time.
- 4 months prior to your wedding day you should have your wedding invitations ordered, as well as thank you cards and bridal shower invites.
- 2 months prior you should mail out your wedding invitations, and order menu cards and wedding programs.
Choosing postage can be just as fun when personalizing the whole look of your invitation suite. Besides what the USPS has on offer for wedding themed stamps you can also search sites like Etsy and ebay for beautiful vintage stamps that will give your envelopes a unique look. Speaking of envelopes, Basic Invite offers 40 different colors of peel and seal envelopes to coordinate your look effortlessly.
Basic Invite is one of the most interactive wedding stationery website’s I’ve seen and it takes a lot of the frustration out of stationery shopping because you can get exactly what you want with all the custom options. I wish I’d had options like this when I got married!
