My first year of post-grad life has brought so many different types of "firsts." My first apartment, first time "officially" moving out of state (technically I moved in 2012 for college... but I officially did all of the "legal" things like updating my license, switching insurance, etc this year!), first post-grad/paid internship, and many, many more smaller firsts as well. One of the most exciting firsts was getting asked to be in a wedding for the first time! On April 1st, I'm so thrilled to be a bridesmaid in my sorority sister Perrin's wedding. She and her fiancé are a wonderful couple, and I couldn't be more happy for their future together, and honored to be apart of their wedding! Two other sorority sisters are in the bridal party as well, and a bunch of my college friends will be at the wedding, so all in all it should be a blast.
The bridal party is split between the Charlotte area and other parts of the country. Since I'm one of the bridesmaids who is local, I'm looking forward to attending the pre-wedding festivities as well as the actual wedding weekend itself! Perrin's maid of honor and mom have planned a lovely bridal shower for her for this month, and some of us bridesmaids wanted to see how we could help as well.
Around this same time, I was conveniently introduced to Basic Invite! They're a premiere online retailer for invitations and stationery, and sell just about any type of invitation or announcement card that you could think of! Seriously- you name an occasion, and there's something for it on Basic Invite. For brides-to-be specifically, they can help to make the wedding planning process easier with their huge selection of cheap save the dates and cute wedding invitations!
Perrin had already ordered her wedding invitations, but her MOH was in need of wedding shower invitations! Luckily Basic Invite also has so many unique bridal shower invitations, so I was able to work with her MOH to select invitations that were perfect for the shower. Navy is one of the central wedding colors, so we ultimately selected these fun striped invitations in navy and yellow. Basic Invite offers almost unlimited color options on all of their designs, and over 40 different colors of envelopes, so the customization options are just about endless!
If you're engaged yourself, or if you know a friend who is, be sure to share Basic Invite with them for all of their wedding event related invitation needs. There are designs to fit every wedding theme, and you'll definitely find something you love. Basic Invite also has lots of options for upcoming spring events like graduations, baptisms, bar mitzvahs and more.
