When you’re dreaming of your wedding day, I can’t imagine you think of the hours you’ll spend picking out the small details before your big day is even close. No matter what your order is in terms of picking your venue, color scheme, photographer (hi, how can we help you?!), planner, band/DJ, etc., you will have to decide on your date. In our opinion, it can be pretty smooth sailing after this big task.

Save the Date

That’s where comes into play to help so many couples! Our biggest pain point while planning our own wedding was weeding through the options to find the save the date that felt right, matched our vision, and of course didn’t break the bank! The Basic Invite Save the Date Template page is so easy to use to filter by exactly what you need, with over 1,000 options! You can even upload your own custom design and have Basic Invite take care of the printing! Let’s also mention the free address printing after using their simple address collection tool.

One of our favorite trends in invitation suites right now is the all-in-one wedding invitation. These include not only your formal wedding invitation but also an RSVP card that can be detached and returned. No envelope necessary! Think of all the time you’ll get back to do fun things like bugging your fiancé for the 800th time to see if they’ve looked at the five different shades of blush you are thinking of for your bridesmaids dresses. In reality, it saves the most time for your guests. These all-in-one invitations make RSVPing on time so much easier! Don’t forget to add return postage for extra ease on your guests.

Wedding Websites

If Save the Dates are a daunting task, start with your FREE wedding website. Their wedding websites are completely customizable, mobile friendly and easy to use. Upload all of your wedding details, along with your favorite images of you and your fiancé, and a map with easy directions for your guests. Having your wedding website set up with every little detail for your guests will help field so many questions they might have along the way! Did we also mention your wedding website can match your wedding invitations?! We don’t know about you but we are such visual people. Seeing a cohesive look through an entire wedding is something we love to see.
