Finding the Perfect Wedding Invitation

We are so excited to feature guest blogger BraKell from Basic Invite on the blog today, sharing with us great tips on finding the perfect wedding invitation!

Being engaged is such a fun and exciting time. Along with the excitement of getting everything ready for the big day comes the stress. There are just SO many decisions to be made! From your dress, the flowers, your colors, etc… it can get a bit overwhelming trying to get so many things planned at once. One of the first decisions to be made is one of the first things your guests will see in tie to your event- the invitations! The invite you choose is what will set the tone for the entire wedding day itself, so choosing something that reflects who you are as a couple is a must. It can be a lot of pressure finding the invite of your dreams, but sites like Basic Invite has had brides backs since 2008 serving up completely customizable stationery that will make your hunt for the perfect invite anything but stressful!

Customized Wedding Invitations

Your invite should obviously match the theme and color scheme of your wedding. Some sites don’t give you much to work with when it comes to their options of colors, but not Basic Invite! With over 160 different color options, customizing your invite has never been so fun or easy! This way, you can make sure your invite represents who you are as a couple personally, which will definitely impress your guest. Customize each element on your invite down to the tiniest detail and to make sure you love what you’ve created, you also get instant preview online!

Finding the Perfect Wedding Invitation

Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations! Being one of the few sites that allow colored envelopes, you can make sure your invite stands out even more to your guests by choosing from over 40 different colors. All of envelopes are also peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without having to lick each one!

Now that you've customized your invite and envelope to be fun and colorful, it’s time to place your order! It can be gut wrenching as you check out your online shopping cart, not exactly sure how your invite will appear in hand opposed to online. Can you imagine placing an order of 500 invites only to hate them once they arrive? Basic Invite wants to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your invite, which is why you can order a sample of your actual invitation before you ever have to place your order in bulk! This way you can make sure it’s perfect down to the tiniest detail, as well as the paper quality.

It's Wedding Wednesday! Today we are excited to bring you 5 cheap wedding dresses you will absolutely ADORE. Just wait.

So, you're planning a wedding, right? And you unfortunately aren't the daughter of the guy who invented duck tape so you don't have a bazillion dollars to spend on the perfect wedding dress. But of course, you still want to look and feel absolutely fabulous in your beautiful and modest wedding dress. Have no fear...the LatterDayBride collection at Gateway Bridal and Prom in Salt Lake City, Utah is home to the largest collection of modest wedding dresses in the world! Yes, that's right. The world. Big place. Anyway, that's not the best part. The best part is, they have over 60 dresses that are UNDER $600! And they are all gorgeous. Take these 4 for example...

The 'Peregrine', 'Leonora', 'Sophia', and 'Coretta' are just a few of the amazing choices for a budget wedding dress at LatterDayBride.

Today we are going to feature five of these beautiful yet unbelievably cheap wedding dresses!

First up, the 'Serrano.' This chiffon gown features a round pleated neckline with beaded sleeves, and comes with an adorable beaded belt at the natural waist. 'Serrano' comes in white or ivory and the sleeves and neckline can be completely customized! At under $500, this gown is an amazing steal.

Dress number 2 is the 'Austen' and is totally swoon-worthy. This simple modest wedding dress offers a soft flowy lace with a darling sweetheart neckline and a soft ribbon accent at the waist. An optional belt will give it a little pizzazz! Available in Porcelin. Did I mention this beauty is under $500? Well, it is. You're welcome.

Next up, one of my personal favs. The 'Dillinger' is 100% modest, yet it provides an option for the non-traditional bride. And it's 100% gorgeous too. Finally, the perfect knee length modest wedding gown. Complete with lace, a sweetheart neckline, an elbow length sleeve and a lovely lace scallop, this darling dress is a dream come true! Dillinger is available in white or ivory! And coming in under $400, it's a tough one to beat.

The lovely lace bodice, illusion sleeves, and the flattering v-neck blend seemlessly with the flowy chiffon skirt, making this a wedding gown for any season. The Leonora comes in under $500 and is available in white or ivory!

The Coretta is available in Dark Ivory/Silver, Ivory/Silver or White/Silver and comes in just under $400, which is absolutely crazy. And get this...it has pockets. I'm in love.

Salt Lake Temple Wedding

Lindsey and Andrew's Salt Lake Temple Wedding was abolute perfection. The fragrant late summer blooms and gorgeous weather were the perfect compliment for this LDS wedding! Lindsey was absolutely radiant in the 'Binetti' gown from the LatterDayBride collection at Gateway Bridal and Prom.

Their photographer, Breanna McKendrick Photography, says "There were nothing but smiles. When talking with Lindsey the week of her wedding, she seemed calmed, relax and just excited to get married.  (This was not the case for me a week before I got married, I was a roller coaster of emotions!). Andrew and Lindsey are pretty level headed and knew weather it rained or shined, they were getting married and that was the most important thing that was happening. Nothing in those final days before their wedding would stop that from happening and that fact along was going to make this day a perfect and beautiful day."
