Confession… when I was planning my wedding 8-9 years ago…. the invitation process REALLY stressed me out… so much so that I didn’t even send out save the dates… AHH!!!
Can I make another confession…. I also got overwhelmed by the thank you notes… those also didn’t get sent out (and I totally purchased them AND wrote the actual thank you’s out… you do realize I LOATHE anything related to shipping right?!?!)
It’s been 8 years and finally admitting that makes me feel so much better. WHEW!
As we’re heading into another amazing wedding season — invitations and save the dates will soon get sent out… or maybe not – if you’re like me.. but hopefully so.. and I tell you, I REALLY wish there was a website out like Basic Invite when I was planning my wedding… Maybe I would have gotten some of those classic save the date magnets sent out!! Am I the only one who loves getting these when I’m a guest — they’re so easy to keep track of!
I wanted to order some custom samples from Basic Invite before recommending them for my peoples — and I wanted to give my honest feedback…
A few of my orders included…..
A drawn together save the date
A save the date magnet — this was definitely my favorite!!!!
And a few wedding invitations
rustic seal & send wedding invitation
classic floral wedding invitation
I’m honestly so pleased with EVERY piece that came in the mail… even some of the ‘material’ the pieces came in feel SO great… every piece feels rich and I totally trust that they’ll deliver on what’s promised — their customer service is so wonderful too!!!
