Ordering Your Destination Wedding Invitations Online


Today we’re sharing with you some wonderful destination wedding invitation ideas from our friends at Basic Invite. If you’re sending out a save the date or wedding invitation, chances are you’re doing some research online. But did you know you can order online too? Just like that, your paper invitations are printed and delivered right to your door, in almost unlimited colors (and oodles of designs) to choose from!


But how do you know you’ll like your selection? With such a big wedding decision in front of you, it’s important to understand what you’re getting. That’s why Basic Invite has created custom samples for couples! You can actually order a printed sample of your specific invitation so you can touch and feel exactly how it will look for your guests, right down to the paper quality.

Then it just comes down to color and design. At Basic Invite, with over 200 wedding invitation sets to choose from, we know you’ll find a favorite that’s just right for your at-home or destination I do! But colors can be a bit trickier. We know you’ll want to match that shade of blush perfectly or tie in the color of the linens to the look, so color options are also key. Luckily, Basic Invite has almost unlimited color options to choose from (and preview online). Simply select the design of your choosing and change the color of each element on the card to any one of their 160 options. This not only allows for picture-perfect color matching, but it takes a preexisting design and makes it all your own. Because no matter your wedding budget, style, theme, or location, we know what’s important is making it personal to the two of you.

Wedding Slim Down Tips + Tricks

wedding dietbridal weight loss

Looking to slim down before the big day or just feel better for your honeymoon?  Today we’ve got a few great ways (and one great resource) to looking and feeling your best before and during your destination wedding and honeymoon!  Enter The Wellness Experience.  The Wellness Experience was built by holistic health educator Nicole Carter to offer classes that help people make significant health upgrades through diet and holistic practices. Courses are offered live, in groups and in personal coaching format and are also available as online e-courses that you can complete at your convenience to help you reach your weight loss and wellness goals.  So we asked Nicole Carter of The Wellness Experience what her best advice is for feeling great come wedding day and we learned a lot!

JF: How long should a bride plan for her weight loss program (before buying that dress!)?
TWE: Brides wanting to lose more than 20lbs should allow for 6 weeks minimum, for over 30lbs at least 8 weeks.

JF: What are some cornerstones to keep in mind when selecting a program?  How do you know what’s right for you?
TWE: When selecting a weight loss program, consider whether it’s realistic or not for you. Is the program sustainable long term? Or are you dying to get back to your old habits? Does the program offer health benefits other than weight loss?

JF: Can you share with us secrets to slimming down in a healthful way right before the big day?
TWE: I do have a few tips that I’ll share with you for some quick results before the big day. First of all cut out dairy products right away. This will reduce bloating and give your tummy a flatter look within a couple of days. Also try moving your dinner time up a couple of hours earlier, and focus on hydration in the later portion of the day. Lastly, eliminate calories from beverages and drink only natural waters such as watermelon or mint waters from my detox program.

JF: What’s a wellness workshop?

TWE: A wellness workshop refers to a class that involves some learning and some hands on work in a topic that gives you some knowledge or skill to help improve your level of health and wellness such as medicinal foods, probiotic cooking or essential oils workshop.

JF: How do you detox safely and what are the results?

TWE: If you’re looking to do a detox program, the best thing to do this safely is to focus on your body’s natural processes. For example drinking teas and eating foods that help your liver to detoxify your blood, and performing skin care detoxification regimens that help the skin to breath and release toxins. You might now always see or feel a difference from the detox but often times the results yield clearer skin, more energy and better digestion for examples.

JF: Your favorite tip or trick to slimming down?

TWE: My favorite slim down trick is to practice intermittent fasting 1-2 times per week and to spend my mornings massively hydrating with herbal teas, lemon water and Kombucha. This really works well especially when combined with the whole six week slim down program.

Thanks so much to Nicole and The Wellness Experience for sharing her expertise with us!  Love these ideas!  For more information, check out The Wellness Experience for help meeting your wedding weight loss goals.
