GUYS! In the past few years my goal as a photographer has been to perfect the ‘flat lay’. What’s a flat lay you ask? It’s one of those super pretty pictures of your wedding invitations, your bouquet, and maybe your rings — from above. They’ve become a staple in every photographers portfolio, and they are one of those HUGE trends that Pintrest is telling you is a “MUST HAVE” for your big day. But to get the perfect shot on my end, the details on your end really need to shine,
The details are always my favourite to photograph because they really set the tone for the whole day. Choosing the perfect stationary set for your invitation definitely makes those details stand out. I recently came across a fun new site that offers so many customizations and a million different options that will help set the tone and theme for your wedding (unlike some of the sites out there!). www.basicinvite.com is pretty rad and you should totally check them out. I’ve become a huge fan and would love to photograph their sets more often! They offer 900+ wedding invites, and the Wedding Invitation Sets include save the dates, wedding invitations, menus, programs, and even matching thank you cards! Honestly they’ve thought of everything including the best wedding website. I remember when I got married I wished I utilized one of theses; it would have been so much easier than trying to organize my wedding Facebook page *face palm*. Its such a great way to manage RSVP’s, mailing addresses and the perfect way to share updated info (insert Rona here…) Having everything all in one place just seems so brilliant and the fact that its totally customizable is pretty awesome too.
Here is some amazing information about Basic Invite:
Free Wedding Websites – Their wedding websites are completely customizable! They’re mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images, and a convenient map with directions for your guests.

Almost Unlimited Colours – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited colour options with instant previews online.
