5 Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Stationery Powered by Basic Invite

 Are you a recently engaged bride planning your wedding this year? Are you dreaming of your big southern wedding as a Black Southern Belle bride? Today we are providing you some inspiration for your Southern nuptials.

Stationery is one of the most important pieces to a wedding for a Southern bride. There are so many things to consider and pieces to include. From custom wedding invitations  to save the date postcards  and even wedding reception guest books   and not to mention the  bridal shower invitation   your world will revolve around paper for your wedding. 

When you are looking for stationery here are some tips and tricks to make your experience easier:

1)Color Options – When you first start planning your wedding, you may or may not have your color scheme picked out. You can use choosing your stationery as a great way to decide and finalize your selection. When choosing a stationery provider, make sure they have plenty of options to match your style especially in case you change it as the planning process continues or have different colors for the various events surrounding your wedding. Check out this link to get the inspiration to pick out your colors and if you are Navy/White bride like I was here is one of my favorites.

Navy/White is my favorite combination and this addition of Blush is sheer perfection!

2)Option to have Custom Samples –  The last thing you want to do is not truly love your stationery, especially after you spend time picking out the colors, shape, size and font and many more decisions.  When you are picking out your stationery you must get a true custom sample.

5)Free Address Collection Service –  When planning a wedding, one of the most tedious processes is collecting addresses. Between your family, your groom’s family, friends, co-workers, it can be a difficult task. Be sure to use a tool to make that process easier and also make sure it connects directly with your stationery company. Trust me that you want the invites to be a seamless process. Not just the beautiful looks of the stationery but also the logistics of getting them to your guests, read more about making this process easier from Basic Invite.

    I appreciate the tips you gave on picking out wedding stationary, first knowing what colors you want, and then the details like what envelope and any additives you want to add to the invite. My fiance and I are starting to plan out what invites we want. We’ll start from the beginning and decide on what colors we want and go from there.
