Basic Invite :: Custom Wedding Invitation Company

When it comes to planning your wedding - the details are truly what will bring your vision together for you. After shooting hundreds of weddings over the past 8 years - I definitely have a few favorite moments of the day... with the time for details shots being one. I love seeing what couples chose to bring their wedding day together, and I always love styling the invitations. Believe it or not, these items will get misplaced over the years, but my job is to capture everything and preserve that detail forever!

So when Basic Invite asked if I wanted to use their creative wedding invitations in a styled shoot - I couldn't wait!

I asked my friend Anna with Rose Moss Designs to help with some loose florals for styling, and I am loving how classic and sophisticated all the white anemones and peonies look (and you already know I love Ivy)! 

The Quarry Venue in Knoxville was the perfect location to match the style of this set. Although we didn't get to shoot at The Quarry for these photos, it was the perfect venue for the style! If you haven't found your wedding venue, definitely go check out this unique and beautiful location! 

As one of the very few companies that is truly custom, they allow you to change any element of the design to over 180 different colors! You can easily change even the individual floral elements, and customize it for your wedding season and wedding colors. And with overy 40 different colors of envelopes, you can make your invitations stand out before they're even opened.

Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can create a custom collection of stationery matching your wedding vision in your marriage invites, corresponding insert cards, matching save-the-date cards, even a wedding website, ceremony programs, reception menu cards and table seating place cards! 

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.

All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. Or choose this envelope option above - where everything is easily folded into the envelope itself! 

They also just rolled out a new clear collection, added rose gold to the available foil line, and just introduced foil place cards!

Now you can plan your entire wedding stationery to correspond; From the Save-the-Date cards, invitation suite, wedding website, guest book, programs, place cards and menu cards! 

This company and the options available are truly amazing! I hope you'll go check them out and order a sample of your wedding suite to see it in person! The quality and paper used are top of the line, I know you'll love them too! 

If you go visit their website now, they have a free printable wedding planner available! 
Have fun customizing!
