Beginning Your Vintage Happily Ever After with Basic Invite

Photos by Marjorie Magazine and Basic Invite

A new decade will bring about new exciting adventures for two of our very own here at Marjorie. By the fall of 2020, we will see our Style Editor Sabrina and Founder Paris tying the knot to their dearly beloveds! We wish them both a joyous new year as they now celebrate their engagements and start looking ahead to their lovely futures.

For all the planning that will ensue, one of the most endearing parts of a wedding that shouldn’t be compromised in both style and quality is that of invitations, be it engagement or the wedding itself. Already set on dates and venues, Paris has turned her attentions to Basic Invite to help tackle her Big Moment with beautiful stationery! Going online for her  invites allows for quick searches and easy editing, getting straight to the designs that suit her vision for one of the biggest days in her life. Let’s see what exactly it is about Basic Invite that Paris loves, as she chooses between 4 of her favorite designs from their vertical engagement party invites!


Black Tie Foil

“Something very simple but very elegant that caught my eye was the Black Tie suite. When all else fails, classic components is key. There’s nothing I love better than monograms to add a touch of grandeur, but make it less formal and more yourself with the right colors and fonts that speak to you. For extra pop, I switched out the rose gold foiling with classic gold and a gave the invitation a ticket-cut shape.”

Pretty Peacocks

“As the date is set for 2020, it only makes sense that it should be celebrated in opulent, roaring-twenties style! Deco is definitely going to be a component of the decor, so why not give guests a sneak peak of the frenzy to come! This original set was on a purple paper, so I switched out the color for a rich navy. Just like that, Basic Invite lets the designer choose and experiment right on the spot, with 180 custom color options!”

Deco Frame Foil

“Very formal but eye-catching. I feel like this is an actual poster to a Vaudeville show, or even resembling an old postage stamp. The Deco Frame suite gets you excited about the event you’ve just been invited to, and with so many fonts at your disposal, make what information that matters pop with clear, bold styles and in contrasting colors. Yes, almost every option given in a set can be personalized!”

Snapshot Foil

“This particular design has me feeling romantic sentiments. The photo is a big part of this invitation– you can beautifully show your love with your favorite memory of you and your fiance’! Even if one photo doesn’t do you both justice, there’s plenty of room to expand on your love story with complimentary wedding websites through Basic!”
