One of the main reasons I’ve found a lot of couples wish to have an engagement session with a professional photographer is to have beautiful visuals for their Save the Date announcement. I think it’s a great way to bond with your photographer and have great imagery from a notable chapter in your lives as a couple as well, but I also agree with the notion of it being fun for such an announcement. Keeping it classy is very important when it comes to design options and Basic Invite is a great way to do just that!
I tested out three different formats and three different layouts with Tiffany and Ed’s engagement session.
Please note: we were paid a small fee in exchange for our post about Basic Invite. All the opinions in the post are ours and we bring you genuine content with real information, photos and thoughts. Always.
I was giddy when my prints arrived…and it wasn’t even my wedding! They arrived in a beautiful light grey envelope with tie closure (very elegant!).
I love how hassle free postcards are. There’s a little bit of novelty to them too. Can you remember a time you received a postcard and it put a genuine smile on your face?! I can. If you’re on a budget it’s a great option too – stamps cost less to mail them. Some benefits of Basic Invite’s postcard options are that you add a photos to the back of the card as well as insert your return address.
If you want a near-guarantee your guests are going to hang your save the date up in their home a magnet’s the way to go. Basic Invite’s magnets are thin enough to mail with one postage stamp and strong enough to stick to your fridge. They come with envelopes for mailing as well.
If you’re going for a more classic look perhaps choose a card with a front and back. I love the option to put a pattern on the back of the card. You’re able to pick a pattern then customize its color. I chose a pale yellow to match Ed’s engagement session shirt color. A grey envelope was included in my options and I love that the light grey compliments the image as well.
Below are two screenshots I took as I was designing the products. Here’s some things I loved about it:
