Yesterday I shared that I am partnering with Basic Invite this month to help prepare couples for their weddings this year with their custom invitation suites. But Basic Invite doesn’t stop at just invitation suites. They recently launched their custom wedding guestbook and I am here for it!
During the planning process, I find that my couples struggle to decide what type of guestbook they are going to have at their wedding. They want their guestbooks to be meaningful yet something they can display in their home for the years to come. Too often when I bring up the topic during our consultations, all my clients can seem to remember are the white pillow topped guestbooks they signed as children when attending traditional church wedding ceremonies in the 90’s and early 20’s. Fortunately Basic Invite has this wonderful option I can share with them.
The Cover –
Wedding details matter because they help tell the story of YOU. Is your story one of matching design elements amongst all of the pieces with font styling, art, and color palette? Or is your story filled with images of your beautiful love story? Fortunately, Basic Invite has never-ending design options just like their invitation suites so you are sure to find a custom wedding guestbook that tells the story of you.
For the couples that love matching design elements, I love that you can create a guestbook cover that matches your invitation selection. The design process is the same as when you are creating your wedding invitations, so font styles and color palette changes allow you to create a truly custom wedding piece. Just imagine how chic your wedding detail images are going to look!
But for the couples, like myself and my husband, that just LOVED their engagement pictures, you can select a photo cover instead. They offer full photo covers or partial photo covers, depending on your style. One of my favorite reasons to choose a photo cover is that they usually blend in nicely on the coffee table so you can display it in your home for all to see.
The Pages –
I am a hoarder of sentimental items. I have saved almost every card I have been given since I can remember. Wedding cards are one of my favorite sentimental items because your loved ones share advice, blessings, and prayers for your future that melt your heart every time you read them. The downside to cards though, is that you don’t get to read them as often due to their storage location (i.e. a box in the attic).
So, for those of you who enjoy reading the advice, blessings, and prayers of loved ones often, the inside pages of Basic Invite’s custom wedding guestbooks are the perfect solution for you. Traditional guestbook page are filled with single line that remind you of your elementary school days of practicing cursive handwriting, which gives very little space for your guests to write something meaningful. Basic Invite has designed the perfect text boxes in their custom wedding guestbooks that provide an ample amount of space for those quick and long guest sentiments.
Overall, the details in your wedding day should have meaning. What better way to do that than to design a custom wedding guestbook?
