Hello, and welcome to the LM Blog! I'm Lyka Mak, and my husband Ken and I are a photography boutique based in Oakland, California. We hope you grab some coffee (or a boba, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, and getting a little peek into our life.
As a recent bride and a wedding photographer, I know how overwhelming planning a wedding can be. You have to schedule your dress appointments, meet up with your planner, go for food tasting, create your website, write and send your invitations and the list goes on. One of the most stressful things with wedding planning is actually keeping up family and friends’ home address and sending the invitations.
I was able to try Basic Invites and let me tell you that it’s so convenient! Basic Invites uses a free address collection service to request addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.
Another great thing about them is the free and completely customizable websites for wedding. I love the fact that we live in a modern tech life now that everyone owns a phone. Even my late grandma had a phone! Having a website for your wedding is a must. Basic Invites has a mobile friendly templates are easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your engagement photos, bridal party photos, wedding details, etc. Life will be easier for your guests to navigate your three day event with different locations. There are 180 colors, and a design suite to perfectly match your wedding invitations!
My favorite is the Seal & Send Wedding Invitations, it includes a tear-off RSVP piece! I love that clean and modern look and a good foil! The printing even has fully customizable foil options to set your invitation apart from all of the others. The guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! All you have to do is use their address collecting service and upload them onto your design. Once they make the invitations and send them to you, all you have to do is add postage, fold your and secure them with a sticker!
