Wedding Planning Tips – Wedding Invitations

Updated: Jun 8, 2022

I recently had someone share this Basic Invite website with me and after remembering what I went through with my own wedding I decided I had to share with all of you as well.

For my wedding I remember searching through those huge invitation books and trying to find the perfect invitation for my wedding and not being impressed enough with any of them to validate their high costs.  So being an artist I figured I would just customize and create my own.   Sounded easy, but it turned into the biggest pain in my butt!   I love creating in Photoshop so I actually enjoyed the design process and didn’t mind spending hours getting it just right.  But trying to find good paper to print on, and printing and putting them together myself made me want to rip my hair out!  Which is why I love this wedding invitations website so much!

They make it so easy to customize your own invitations, no expensive design software or art background necessary.  And they do all the printing and processing for you and a very affordable price.  They even use peal and stick envelopes (in over 40 different colors), because trust me, you don’t want to have to lick 100…or even 10 envelopes, yuck!  They have really gorgeous and unique designs and I love that you can get a matching save the dates, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching wedding websites, so everything flows together beautifully.   Oh, and one of the best parts- they will send you a sample of your design so you can feel the paper and make sure everything looks just like you want it, in your hands, before you place your order.  If only they were around when I was planning my wedding 10 yrs ago, it would have saved me so much time and money!

With their permission here are a few pictures I wanted to share of some of my favorite designs they feature.
