When it comes to your wedding stationery, a lot of time is spent focusing on the perfect wedding invitation design. Every bride seems to want the perfect floral masterpiece placed in the exact right spot matched with the right font style and specific colors. And most designs are pretty, but maybe not exactly what you’re looking for. At last, the struggle is over because we have teamed up with Basic Invite who not only has more than 200 invitation designs, but unlimited customization options, meaning you can fall in love with your design by personalizing your favorite look!
Design is important - yes, but having the ability to change aspects of your design to mold it into the best invitation for you is even more important. Not to mention super exciting and a really fun process! So, what are some of the aspects to focus on when personalizing your online wedding invitation? Two things, font and paper. Basic Invite has tons of options for you in both departments and they have some insider information on how to mix and match.
With over 100 font choices and 5 different types of paper, Basic Invite has options for any style. From romantic and vintage to modern and monogrammed, there really is something for every bride.
Matching your design with your font can make or break your wedding invites. If you match a vintage look with a bubbly font as opposed to traditional calligraphy you may notice everything looks just a bit off. So, being sure to choose a suitable font for your design style is key! Thin, square, or sharp fonts look best with modern designs or art-deco styled invites. And cursive or calligraphy pairs best with text only designs and vintage or romantic looks.
Another component that can enhance your invite is the type of paper you choose. Basic Invite offers signature matte, smooth coated, premium shimmer, luxe velvet, and double thick matte. Each paper type offers its own style and plays an important part in the overall quality of your invites as a whole, but let’s break it down a bit so you can decide which paper type is best for you!
Their standard signature matte is their most popular paper type. This is a classic choice as it offers a sturdy invite that looks and feels very high quality. Their signature matte looks gorgeous in any color and prints designs in a clean and pristine matte finish. This is one of two default paper choices, which means you can order it at no additional cost - perfect for a bride on a budget! If you’re looking for an even heavier paper, upgrade to their double thick matte for a delicious cotton texture, beautiful for printing photo invites.
A second default option is their smooth coated paper which has a semi-gloss finish. This is perfect for producing vibrant colors that print rich and beautifully. Not to mention, it’s made with 50% recycled material for any of you environmentally conscious brides!
Basic Invite offers 2 more upgraded paper types. For a small additional cost, you can print your invites in premium shimmer or luxe velvet.
For an elegant and extra fancy look, they recommend choosing premium shimmer. This paper offers a tasteful pearl white shimmer which adds a subtle shine to your invitations. This is the perfect choice for your holiday cards, too!
Luxe velvet, the most mysterious and gasp-worthy paper is like nothing you’ve ever experienced in stationery. Its surface is soft to the touch with its suede-like silky, soft texture. If you want your guests to be treated to a velvety soft experience when they open their envelope, this is the card to choose!
Choose one of Basic Invite’s classy foil designs if mixing and matching is just too overwhelming for you. Their foil designs come in gold, silver, and rose gold. Any of these designs are elegant choices and can pair with any style of wedding. Pick from raised or flat foil for a bit of shine and sophistication.
