Orange County | Huntington Beach | Engagements + Weddings » Rustic Wedding Save the Dates with Basic Invite

2007 was a big year for me. After all the years of photographing weddings that had taken me all over the U.S., I was officially a bride-to-be. For the first time, I was going to experience wedding planning from beginning to end, just like my brides and grooms. It was exciting, and being well-versed in the wedding industry, I had an idea of where I wanted to start.

Engagement photos and Save-the-Dates! I mean, how could I not start there!? I couldn’t wait! I had photographed enough wedding invitation sets to know that I wanted to make the best, first impression when it came to planning our wedding. We opted for a simple reception in our favorite Italian restaurant…we decided to go with a rustic look with some boho touches. When it came time to choose our invitations, we decided to start with some rustic wedding save the dates. Instead of going the traditional route of invitation design, we took the more modern approach and did everything online. Simply put, the experience was easy, fun and so efficient!

Fast forward to 2019 and there are so many online options for our couples today! Which brings me to tell you about this awesome custom invitation company called Basic Invite! They have everything that you need to celebrate all milestones in life, from save-the-dates, weddings, birth announcements, parties, and holidays – invitations, stationery, coasters, personalized websites, and other great accessories!

With my bride days long behind me, these days, I am always on the lookout for the cutest and unique holiday cards and party invitations (mom life and all that). I am IN LOVE with all their different designs and one of the coolest things that Basic Invite offers is the address collection service, which makes life so much easier! Basic Invite is totally worth checking out, below are a few things that are pretty awesome!

Over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail.

Custom Samples – Customers have the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Seal & Send Wedding Invitations – Seal & Send Wedding Invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! What’s extra special about the Seal & Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary!
