Minimallie is all about creating a purposeful life of fewer, better things. Tiny spotlight is a new series in which I highlight something that's making our "tiny" life simpler, easier, or just plain better!
Wedding planning has commenced (again), people! I think I'm starting to realize why people usually get married before they have a baby..... they need to have time to plan the party! I want an affordable, DIY, creative, inspired, spectacular wedding, that takes little to no planning time. Is that too much to ask?!? But seriously, there's a lot to do, and not a lot (or any) time to do it.
So, I'm trying my best to keep everything about the wedding planning process simple. A little bit of creative DIY mixed with a bit of "the easy route". For example, invitations. I think I once dreamed of designing and dip-dyeing and packaging and bow-ing. And now I have the baby whispering in my ear like..."ain't nobody got time for that".
Clearly, when Basic Invite reached out about giving their invitations a try, I was thrilled. I've been wanting to try their stuff out for a long time. They have stunning, modern designs with almost unlimited color options, and I had heard great things about the quality, so I checked 'em out.
Here are some of my favorites from the wedding category:
So pretty, right? I love how their wedding invites can be part of a cute set (save the dates, enclosures, even menus to match).
I did want to add that little bit of "creative DIY", so I ended up having my invites custom designed by a friend of a friend. Luckily, Basic Invite also has a bunch of great "upload your own" invite options! I was able to find the perfect sizes for my cards, pick from the variety of beautiful paper options, and have them delivered in under 10 days. The color is rich, the cutting is perfect, and the envelopes are great (yay for quick 'n' easy peel and seal). I'm so glad I used the help and kept life simple on this one!
I wish I could share them with you all right now but I think I'll keep them under wraps for now and save that for another day :).
By the way, in case you're one of those "send your holiday cards on time" kind of people, right now Basic Invite is offering 30% off for holiday cards with code HOLI30. Get on it!
