Why a wedding invitation is an important part of your wedding photography
Today we are talking about the one detail that we believe makes the most impact stylistically in your wedding day photography. It also makes your photos feel super editorial! You guessed it: your wedding invitation. Here is some inspiration and tips for picking the perfect wedding invitation. We are also including a feature on Basic Invite, a unique and completely customizable wedding invitation option we love and why we know you will too!
The truth is, physical objects from your wedding day are touchpoints that make all the memories come alive. Your wedding invitation is one of those powerful touchpoints that we love to photograph. When combined with the moments of your day and your favourite people that define your day, we consider your wedding stationery to be that final piece that ties everything together perfectly!
Great wedding stationery should accomplish three things!
Think of your wedding invitation as the “nutshell” reflection of the look and feel of your wedding day. Your invitation is also the source of inspiration for all of your other printables! The key is you want all of your stationery pieces to be part of a cohesive whole: everything should match without being annoyingly matchy-matchy!
When you pause to think about all of the printables and touchpoints you and your guests will have, there are actually quite a few! From your engagement invitation to your wedding invitation and more, here’s a list of some of the most popular pieces:
Not all wedding stationery is made equal! And you probably want to avoid picking something that everyone has already seen. That’s why so many brides love getting their wedding stationery custom-made!
While we LOVE a gorgeous bespoke wedding invitation suite, they are not accessible to every bride. Every bride deserves her dream stationery that can be fully customized (okay, yes, as a designer I’m completely biased!). And that’s why we adore Basic Invite. Today we’re going to highlight why we love their fully customizable approach and designs so much!
