A small note from Amanda: Please give a warm welcome to the stationery team at Basic Invite. One of the team members, Mackenzie reached out to me earlier in the year and after a good bit of back and forth we each compiled a concise guide of sorts for the other to use in their blog posts and to share with their readers! I couldn’t even begin to tell you that I know the slightest thing about stationery building, just like they wouldn’t try to explain the business of wedding photography. So we are giving you (our couples) the biggest benefit when it comes to gathering resources for your wedding: Professional Advice straight from the source.
On a personal note, I think their wedding websites are just darling and I love how user friendly they are. A Huge plus in my book.
