I'm so happy to announce that I have partnered with Basic Invite to bring you gorgeous wedding invitations, save the dates, baby announcement, birthday party invites, holiday greeting cards and plenty more great stationary options. First off let's talk exclusive discounts and deals through Ashley Halas Photography, because let's be honest who doesn't love saving money. Not only can you use my code below any time to recieve free shipping and 20% off any purchase, but I also offer my clients 40% off through the holiday season on all holiday greeting card designs! How sweet is that? Basic Invites pricing is already competitive, couple that with my discounts and you are set!
Ok let's talk about the all the features, designs and customization options they offer..
Not only does Basic Invite supply a wide array of designs from casual to elegant, I love that they also have FREE mobile friendly Wedding and Birthday Party Websites to match your invitations! Everyone knows wedding websites are a valuable tool in the wedding planning process, with features such as address collection, digital rsvp's, maps, registry linking, and more. But did you ever consider how cool this option would be for a sweet 16? Your teen can share the details of their birthday party with their friends on their phones and upload photos for easy sharing both before and after the event. Plus, how hard is it to get a bunch of teenagers to rsvp to an event these days? With Basic Invites Birthday Party Websites collecting rsvp's and putting together that final head count is easier than ever. I think it's so cool they have over 40 Birthday Party Websites that cater to all ages and almost 400 of the Best Free Wedding Website options. All event websites are completely free and I found myself falling in love with the fact that they offer these free event websites with no restrictions whatsoever, unlike many other free event (wedding) websites, there's no paid features here. You get full access with no limitations right from the start with no ads cluttering up your site or making it look cheap. Plus every single event website has a matching invitation suite creating a seamless look both online and in person. When they say "truly customizable" they mean it! I think what really sets this online invitation site apart is that you can alter the color of every aspect of your designs and choose from over 180 color options with multiple shades and dozens of different font styles. You can truly customize your website and invitations to suit exactly what you envision.

On a tight budget? Most couples are as these days. How about all the paper waste that can happen with weddings? Well I have found that Basic Invite has a great solution to solve both problems while keeping class and style in mind with their Seal & Send Wedding Invitations. Simply choose from over 60 of their best-selling designs. What's extra special about these Seal & Sends is that your guest's addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary! All you have to do is share a link to collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design, instantly. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold up your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple, easy, and super trendy. Your guests receive both the invitation itself and a tear-away RSVP section at the bottom (that print with your return address included). What I like most is that these invitations are FSC certified and made with 50% recycled content. No envelopes means less waste and more time and money in your hands.
I love that the customization is truly endless with Basic Invite. Not only do they offer over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets but the color choices are practically unlimited, allowing you instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card with over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it - down to the littlest detail. If you're anything like me you want to make sure the choices you made online look as good as you think they will in-person. So you may want to considering taking advantage of their printed samples, you can order a printed sample of the actual invitation you designed so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order. As a photographer I'm a huge fan of color envelopes when putting together a flat lay, and with over 40 envelope color choices you can really create a dynamic look to your invitation suite, cherry on top? All their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Want to hear about another cool option available through Basic Invite? Clear or frosted invitations! That's right they're clear vinyl (plastic) or frosted printed invitations for a seriously unique twist on your wedding or shower invitations. "Paper" is treated with a scratch resistant coating and can be paired with over 40 different envelope colors. Talk about leading the way on a new trend!
With wedding season right around the corner, bridal shower and bachelorette season is upon us. I'm currently looking forward to my best friend's wedding this October and as a bridesmaid it has been super fun helping to put together her shower! Scrolling through Basic Invites Bridal Shower Invitation designs I noticed so many fun ideas I wanted to be sure to mention. You'll see in an coming up blog post highlighting her event which design we ultimately chose to fit her bridal shower theme, but I can't share that just yet as obviously it's a surprise. However I came across some fun designs you may want to check out for this fall are listed and linked below.
