Stunning Wedding Invitation and Save the Date Ideas to Set Your Wedding Apart

Wedding planning is undeniably stressful. When I planned my wedding a few years ago, the hardest part was the sheer number of choices that we had to make. From tablecloths to table settings to music and cake toppers, it was a lot. It got very overwhelming very fast, and I really relied on systems that were simple and streamlined.

Things to Consider When Choosing Save the Dates:

Time says to send local save-the-dates cards six to eight months prior to the big day, and nine months to a year for destination weddings.

Guest List

Once someone receives a save the date, consider them invited to your wedding. Make sure to review your guest list with your partner and venue (some have guest requirements or limits) prior to sending out save-the-dates.


Save-the-date’s are your guests first “introduction” to your wedding. It’s vibe, formality, and style can all be conveyed with just a save the date. With Basic Invite, choosing save-the-dates that fit your aesthetic is easy!

Things to Consider When Choosing Wedding Invitations


According to, wedding invitations should be sent eight weeks before a local wedding.

Destination Wedding Details advises sending out destination wedding invites two to three months before walking down the aisle.


Until I planned my own wedding, I had no idea how many different ways there are to write a wedding invitation. There are different ways to write the time, the date, reception details, etc.

This article from Emily Post breaks down the different ways to word it all!


Basic Invite keeps custom wedding stationary fresh and simple. Wedding invitations should match the style of the save the date cards.

And you can change the color of each element, which is a detail that will set your invitations apart. Foil cards are also available in gold, silver, or rose gold (flat or raised) for an elevated touch.

Their invitations and save-the-date cards are perfect for introducing your guest to your wedding’s atmosphere and formality.

Basic Invite also has a wide variety of envelope colors to choose from (40+). They securely close with the peel and seal method.

Once you’ve chosen your invitation or save the date, you can order samples straight to your door. One of my least favorite parts of online shopping is not being able to feel the item. With Basic Invite samples you can actually hold your invitation in your hand. This lets you feel the weight of the paper, look at the colors in different lights, or even put it up on your fridge to stare at for a few days before making a decision.

Something that sets Basic Invite apart is the convenience of their address capturing service. Simply send their link to friends through social media to request their address. Then, the addresses are all neatly compiled into your Basic Invite account for you to access during the design process. The best part is that their address printing is completely free on card orders!
