Some of you might not know this but I absolutely love stationary and invitation suites. I use stationary to send out thank you cards to my clients and love taking photos of invitation suites. With that said I wanted to showcase some fun and modern invitations that keep to one of my favorite event idea: Beach themed.
Being born and raised on an island, I naturally gravitate to anything beach themed. I have partnered with Basic Invite to be able to share ideas for beach themed invitations. As much as I love the bright tropical color I wanted to showcase the new trend of pastel colors through their beach themed bridal shower invitations.
The trend for neutral and pastel colors is on the rise and kind of loving it. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers 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.
If you are not loving the neutral color trend and love bright colors for your event, no worries because Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. Having used other invitation websites this is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Talking about trends, clear/acrylic looking signs/invitations is probably one of my favorite trends right now. Too bad I got married before clear invitations were a thing because ours would have been the clear wedding invitations. Basic Invite’s modern floral design on their clear wedding invitation suite would have been absolute perfect for our beach themed wedding! They also have colorful envelopes that could have matched our bright tropical beach theme. But because the neutral, pastel color trends are in style now, you have the option to choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes, giving you a better chance of finding a neutral or pastel color you love.
So for any beach wedding planners, wedding destination couples, beach brides, or tropical lovers out there, Basic Invite will make it easy for you to stay consistent with your beach themed wedding. They have everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards to stay true to your beach wedding.
It gets better, not only can you design all your wedding event invitations and stationary but you can also make your wedding website. Basic Invite are offers free wedding websites that is customizable just like their wedding invitations! These wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, especially if you’re having a destination wedding, along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. You can choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite!
My love for stationary is real and couldn’t help but order some pretty stationary samples from Basic Invite after looking at their invitation suites. If you’re like me, I do not like to buy big a big bulk of stationary and loved the fact that I am capable of ordering my customized samples of each design of their stationary. I had so much fun designing them and changing their colors to fit my photography brand. I love this idea of sampling out the quality and color because colors look so different on your computer screen; and the paper quality always end up being thinner than expected. I was pleasantly surprised by how thick their signature matte paper were!
Lastly, I wanted to showcase my new business cards. As I have mentioned before, acrylic/clear trend is my new favorite trend so I couldn’t help myself and ordered a couple business cards that Basic Invite has to offer. My favorite is the frosted clear business cards which I think will set me apart and be a great conversation starter.
