As a wedding photographer, creating beautiful flat lay photos are a big part of my job. A flat lay is a styled image without people in the photo – for weddings it's the couples details that showcase the wedding colors and their accessories. Flat lays are a nice way to bring together your details, help define the mood and to help set the story of your wedding day all in one photo. They are the gorgeous photos that you see on Instagram and Pinterest that show off all of the wedding details. To create a stunning flat lay, one of the most important pieces of the details to include are your invitation suites. Over the countless weddings I have photographed, I've come across quite a few different styles of wedding stationary - and one of my favorite to date has come from the company Basic Invite.
Basic Invite is a company that specializes in online stationery. They offer a wide range of options for customers to customize their invitations and cards, making them stand out from other companies in the industry. wedding name place cards ideas,
One of the most notable features of Basic Invite is their almost unlimited color options. With over 180 colors to choose from, customers can select a design and then change the color of each element on the card, ensuring that the final product is exactly how they want it. This level of customization is not something that is offered by many other online stationery companies. I took it upon myself to design a few invitations on Basic Invite's easy to navigate website so that I could see what my couples go through when creating their invites, and I found it to be SO easy and user friendly. I loved all of the color options and how customizable is.
Another unique feature of Basic Invite is their custom sample option. Customers can order a printed sample of their actual invitation before placing their final order. This allows them to see the paper quality and how the card will look in real life, ensuring that the final product is perfect.
