Gatsby Save the Dates & Other Basic Invite Wedding Stationary Inspiration

You’ve just nailed down your wedding day date, had your first visionary meeting with your planner, and maybe you and your cute fiancé just finished getting your engagement pictures done. You know you’ll need to send out a ‘Save the Date’ to help your friends and family plan, yet you would prefer that they’re consistent with your wedding theme and the rest of your wedding stationery! 

 Basic Invite is a fantastic way to incorporate the stationery for your wedding with consistency from start to finish.  From ‘Save the Date’ and Invitation Suites… to wedding coasters, programs, and menus. You can even stay on your wedding theme with Basic Invite’s ‘Thank You’ cards, all from the comfort of your own home!


 Once you’ve picked out your stationery, you can include addresses, along with your return address printing for envelopes that match the font of your invitations.

And if you and your fiancé want to have a wedding website (which I highly recommend), Basic Invite offers free websites with your theme!  So after you order your stationery products, you can create your website with the same theme, giving your guests a taste of what is to come! 

 I had the pleasure of partnering with Basic Invite to get a feel of creating stationery within their system, and discovered so many beautiful designs and over 180 colors!  I’d encourage you to decide what your wedding theme and color are… or so many choices may become a little overwhelming!


 Customization was easy, but it can quickly become time-consuming (it’s fun to create!), so make sure that you budget yourself a good chunk of time when sitting down to get creative with your stationery.

One of my favorite collections is the Art Deco (check out there Gatsby Save The Dates)  below…Of course, I made the invite in my favorite color pink!




One of my favorite invites- I love the timeless look of this gorgeous invitation!



Paring with the design above, I took and made a custom wedding coaster to match! By the way, I picked my two favorite names to put on the coaster! 🙂 elegant-custom-wedding-coasters

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
