Basic Invite: Why Fall (DIY) Brides and Planners Need to Know Them

July 29, 2019 Denver, CO, USA

Ever since I was a kid, I have always been fascinated with letters, stationeries and the like that I still am keeping a plastic container full of them at our house in the Philippines. Most of the time, I just bought them for the sake of having them in my collection as they look so nice and pretty! And some I have used to write my loved ones and friends a handwritten letter. And by the time we reach the age for getting married, I also stored all of the wedding invites that I got from my friends. So imagine how the part of coming up with our own wedding invitation made me extra giddy three years ago!

As you may have noticed, I haven't shared anything about our very intimate wedding here on my blog. Aside from my husband is not really into social media (and it will be hard not to post pictures of him given this topic), I was thinking maybe I can do that when we get married in the Philippines eventually. By then  I can share more of my experience as a bride planning her wedding! But despite the fact of having a small and DIY ceremony here in Colorado, I had a great time researching and creating our own wedding invitations! The only thing I think is that time, given that we need the materials with limited time and budget and me still not into online shopping, I only find few options for us. It would really have been awesome if I had stumbled upon an online brand such as Basic Invite that will cater to this wedding need and so much more!

Basic Invite is a US brand that focus on providing custom invitation needs. They offer cards for occasions such as birthday parties, anniversaries, baby showers, graduations, but most of their products are geared towards wedding needs. You can browse on a lot of designs and and customize as much detail and style as you want. These can be for your pre-wedding and wedding day supplies such as invitations, cards, stickers, as well as other accessories you might desire for your occasion. They even offer free wedding information websites that I'm pretty sure brides would love. I'm thinking it would be nice to have one if ever my husband and I will get married again!

Also, I have a great news! If you or you know someone that are looking for fall bridal shower invitations, I'm sure that Basic Invite's fall in love bridal shower invitations can make the occasion more remarkable. As per the other products, you can customize the material, shape and colors and you can even coordinate your thank you cards for seamless planning. And there is no minimum or maximum for number of orders so you don't have to worry about wasting your budget, too!

Here is a list of things that you would love about Basic Invite and why brides and bridal committees should consider them if they are planning a wedding related occasion soon (especially this fall). I got this information from their team and once you check their website, you would definitely fall in love with their products like me.

"Free Wedding Websites -  Our all-new wedding websites are completely customizable just like our wedding invitations! These wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite!

Almost Unlimited Colors - 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. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples - 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.

Seal & Send Wedding Invitations - Our Seal & Send Wedding Invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send lin is our newest collection and brides and LOVING them! Currently, we offer them in over 30 designs including our ever-popular foil options and like our other products are customizable. What's extra special about our Seal & Sends is that guest's addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design, instantly. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple, easy, and super trendy."

Hope this post will help with your wedding planning needs. Please do let me know if you avail them! Right now, I am checking their line of business cards if I can find something that will suit my new blog (details on that soon!). Have a great day to all!

Hi Fashion Seekers! How are you all doing? I know that it's been a while since I published my last blog post as there are a lot of things that I list as my goals for 2019 and I feel like I still can't decide on some of them (one of them is regarding if I will move to a WordPress hosting). Anyway, I will not bore you with those and I will try to keep you updated with regards to any changes if ever!

Going back to the reason of writing this post: I got featured in 's Fashion Magazine! They reach out to me few weeks ago and upon checking their website, I agreed to do the feature. I was surprised and honored at the same time with the article they wrote about me (thanks again, DressLikeMe Team!) and it makes me feel that even though I have small following right now, there are still people that appreciate what I do or contribute as a blogger. So if you are also like me we will never measure to big names in the blogging world, we just need to do our best and keep sharing our ideas through our blog and social media. You will never know, that one post can make someone's day. Here is the link of their feature of me if you are interested: . Please let me know what your thought on it by commenting below! is a website that collates the ongoing sales from different brands and make it easy for you to shop online. If you love sale items like me, I'm pretty sure you will like what their website offers. You can search by type apparel type, what's trending, and the products goes from clothes, shoes, bag and other accessories. The items are on the mid to high end prices, but you will never know if you stumble in a good deal (or if you shop on those brands/stores already) so feel free to check them out! You can also get inspirations from their magazine that features trends, styling tips and actual outfit posts from fashion bloggers and influencers.
