Our Save The Date Cards

This is the very first post that I’ve written in regards to wedding planning. So I’m extremely excited to be sharing our Save the Date cards with y’all today!Β  Once Joey and I decided on our wedding date and location, I was ready to design our cards. I absolutely love receiving paper invites when it comes to special occasions. I guess I am just old school like that. I feel that with technology these days, paper invites aren’t a popular thing anymore because it’s much easier to send an invite through text or online. With that being said we knew that we wanted something more personable this is why we decided to order our Save the Dates from Basic Invite.

Designing Our Save the Dates

Basic Invite allows you to choose from 180 different color options when designing your cards. When it came to deciding on what type of design we wanted, we knew that we wanted to include at least one of our wedding colors. Our wedding colors are marsala, navy and gold, so I felt that the Foil Collection was absolutely perfect. We went with this collection because it allowed us to have the gold color we wanted for the writing. Once we picked out the design of the card from the foil collection, it was so easy to customize to our liking. I loved that while we were designing the cards we were able to view all the changes we were making as we went. We were very surprised with how easy it was to design the cards because we are not the most creative individuals. One of the great things about Basic Invite is that you are able to order a custom printed sample to see and feel the quality of the invites before you decide to place your final order. This is a big deal because I know that I would not want to spend a ton of money up front and not be happy with what I received.

In addition to designing our cards I was able to choose from over 40 different colors for the envelopes. One great feature that Basic Invite provides is their free address collection service. This service allows you to request addresses by simply sharing a link and then they are printed out on the envelopes (at no charge).Β  This was a huge time saver because we had over 200 cards to address. Another thing I loved about the envelopes is that they are peel and seal (so no licking required) which makes the process much quicker!

I am extremely pleased with our Save the Dates. I was so happy that the whole process was simple and easy. If you’re looking to design your Save the Dates I highly recommend using Basic Invite. You will not be disappointed!

    I have taken note that of all different types of insurance, health insurance is the most debatable because of the struggle between the insurance cover company’s duty to remain making money and the consumer’s need to have insurance policy. Insurance companies’ earnings on wellbeing plans are certainly low, therefore some firms struggle to earn profits. Thanks for the strategies you write about through this web site.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed
    up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point
    me in the direction of a good platform.

    I think everything said made a bunch of sense.
    However, consider this, what if you added a little content?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid, however suppose
    you added a post title to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Our Save The Date Cards is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab
    readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
