Pop of Color: Fuchsia Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are often full of color and we love color!  If you want to spice up your wedding day decor in an oh-so tropical way, then consider a happy shade of fuchsia!  The pretty pink/purple tone goes great with gold, silver, even orange at a destination wedding and we’ve selected a few of our favorite ideas for you!

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. When it comes to wedding planning, taking the guesswork out of ordering is essential, especially when ordering online.

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.

Then when the invitation suite is designed, select from one of 40 different colored envelopes and you’re ready to share with the world that you’re getting married! Shopping for your wedding invitations online has never been easier (or prettier)!

Unique Wedding Rentals: Rentivist


Every so often we like to share a cool new product, trendsetting service, or fun find for our destination wedding friends and couples and today we bring you Rentivist! They came on the scene not too long ago and we recently had the pleasure of seeing their products come to life firsthand. Needless to say, we were sold.

But what is it? Rentivist is a new concept – a website that connects couples with cool stuff they want to rent – from folks who have excess inventory or available unique and different products ready to ship to you! It’s essentially an online marketplace where oodles of event companies can display their wares and you select what you display on your big day. The rental companies pay to participate so you as the bride or groom never get charged (no transaction fees, markups, or commissions).
