Custom Color Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are so important, since they are first detail your guests see that will set the tone and build anticipation for your event. All the finer points of the invitation — the colors, wording, and design elements — not only tell your guests the essential information of the date and location, but also provide the most clues about your wedding style, dress code, and level of formality.

With so many important details riding on this piece, it only makes sense that many couples want their wedding invitations to be highly customized. If you want this level of control over the design, (I know I did!) Basic Invite is an amazing resource for everything you need for your custom wedding invitations. They also have  all the other pieces of wedding stationery you’ll need, like save-the-dates, enclosure cards, bridal shower invites, printed place cardsand thank you notes!

Obsessed with the details? You’ll Want Custom Wedding Invitations!

Wedding planning is full of overwhelming choices, but when you know exactly what you want, it can make it even tougher! When I got married, I had a clear vision of what I wanted for invitations, but I couldn’t find an invitation set that had the right combination of the colors, design, and wording I was seeking, and custom options were prohibitively expensive! Well, thank goodness Basic Invite exists now! You can pick from 180 beautiful colors in each of the design elements. You can adjust wording and preview all these elements right online in their customizer. So, if you’re particular about the details like I was, you’ll love the control you’ll have!

Trendy Wedding Invitations

Basic Invite also offers envelopes in coordinating colors, and all of the top finishes like metallic foil, rose gold, and photo styles. I’m especially a huge fan of the clear wedding invitation style (it’s such a chic look!) and Basic Invite has a beautiful selection of them!

See Your Wedding Invitations Before You Buy

Even after getting the perfect level of customization on your screen — if you’re like me — you’ll want to make sure the invite you’ve created online is exactly what you will see in person. Basic Invite offers custom samples so that you can feel the paper, see the colors, check the text, and make sure you love everything before you commit to printing your whole order.

Today’s wedding dress of the day, is not only a lovely ball gown style wedding dress, it also comes with a story of a good deed.  As you may have heard, bridal retailer Alfred Angelo Bridal unexpectedly closed their doors  this week, leaving many brides and wedding parties in a terrible predicament because many are still without their dresses.  David’s Bridal, however, has stepped up (as have many other local bridal boutiques) by offering assistance to anyone who has a verified purchase with Alfred Angelo, who is now worried about receiving their gowns.  See here for more details on the David’s Bridal offer to Alfred Angelo customers!

White by Vera Wang – Exclusive to  David’s Bridal

Now, the Alfred Angelo offer doesn’t apply to online purchases (but if you are searching for a wedding dress to buy online you can buy from David’s Bridal and be confident that the order will arrive!) David’s Bridal has always partnered with the top names in designer bridal, like Vera Wang, whose White by Vera Wang Bridal Collection is simply beautiful! Have a look!  We particularly love this voluminous tulle bridal gown in that collection – Style VW351339 – which, along with David’s Bridal assistance to brides left without gowns, is a lovely option to try for any bride. That is why it’s our wedding dress of the day! It features a beautiful  sweetheart strapless neckline, and hand-draped tulle details.
