Celebrating Your Engagement + Custom Engagement Party Invitations from Basic Invite

I remember it like it was yesterday...the excitement and wonder, the shock and surprise, the congratulations from our closest family and friends...we were ENGAGED!  At that moment, life couldn't get any sweeter! 14 years later and I still remember this time in our lives! The feeling of knowing that you are with the person you love more than anyone else in this world, the person who understands you the best, the person who stays up late with you every night to binge watch your favorite shows and then brings you coffee in your favorite mug with just the right amount of cream the very next morning. That person you have been doing life with just asked you to do it FOREVER!

What a fun and awesome time for a newly engaged couple! Naturally, couples want to  celebrate their engagement with their closest family and friends. They want to let the world know their new identity as an engaged couple (shout it from the rooftops so to speak), all while sharing a drink and some good food! It is time to celebrate their engagement with an ENGAGEMENT PARTY! 

These days there are no shortage of ideas and themes for engagement parties. From black tie affairs to laid-back backyard BBQ's, couples are planning some pretty awesome engagement parties! And who doesn't love a party that celebrates two people in love?!?!

Since an engagement party is a celebration of the couple and who they are as one, it makes sense that the engagement invitations they select should be customized to showcase their style and tastes. That is why I am so excited to share Basic Invite with you all today!

A few tips for creating engagement party invites...

1. Be sure to include the who, what, where, and when details on your engagement party invites

2. Don’t invite someone you don’t plan on inviting to the wedding!

3. Consider the type or theme of the engagement party you want to have, and then select a design for your engagement party invitations that showcases that particular theme. The folks over at Basic Invite offer a truly customized experience when creating your invitations which makes it easy for you and your significant other to create something with the colors and style that express who you are as a couple!

4. Many couples who create Engagement Invitations through Basic Invite also create a complete wedding invitation suite as well. Knowing this, it makes sense to select and customize an engagement party invitation that compliments the theme and style of your wedding invitations. Engagement invitations also are a great way for my couples to familiarize themselves with Basic Invite so that they are pros by the time they design their wedding invitations. 


Basic invite is truly a one stop shop for  creating everything from engagement party invitations, to save-the-dates, to custom wedding invitations, place cards, menus, the list goes on and on!
