Aside from photography (we’re obviously a little biased), stationery is one of the most important parts of your wedding. Without things like save the dates and invitations, it’s fair to say that your guests would be totally lost. Wedding stationery not only outlines all of the practical details of your day, it’s oftentimes the first glimpse that attendees will get of the occasion—which means they’re a great opportunity to express yourselves and convey the unique vibe of your wedding.

Now there are lots of online stationery companies out there, but Basic Invite is the one we repeatedly recommend to all of our couples. Basic Invite has all of your paper products covered—from wedding invitations and save the dates to announcements, menus, guest books, place cards and so much more (you can even build your wedding website on their site). And they don’t stop at weddings—you can design graduation, baby shower and birth announcements, holiday cards and more on Basic Invite. Fun fact: we actually designed our business cards with them way back when, and have been obsessed ever since, they’re that good. 

If you're a creative at heart, Basic Invite makes it super easy to design your own wedding invitations. They offer over 1,000 invitation options and nearly every element is customizable, for that personalized touch. Even better, there are over *180 color options* to choose from (you can also add foil for extra glitz), over 40 different peel-and-seal envelope colors, and you can instantly view previews online at any time. Once you’ve decided on your dream design, you can order a physical printed sample before you place your bulk order—which is kind of unheard of for online stationery sites. This means you’ll be able to hold an invite in your hand, and make sure the paper quality, colors, and print are all up to snuff before making your final decision, which is really cool! 

Depending on where you are in your planning process, you either know or are about to learn that collecting addresses for everyone on your guest list is a major headache. Thankfully, Basic Invite has an address capturing service that essentially lets you post a link to any of your social media so your invitees can submit their addresses themselves, saving you the trouble of having to send a million texts. All the addresses are stored on your Basic Invite account, so all you need to do is select them while designing your invites—it’s genius. 

Moral of the story: when it comes to wedding stationery, there’s no going wrong with Basic Invite. Right now, you can save 15% on your order with code “15FF51” at checkout, be sure to tell them that we sent you!
