Basic Invite : Brides, Let's Talk Wedding Stationery!

Congratulations! He popped the question and you accepted, now it's time to plan that dream wedding and get those save the dates in the mail. 

In my opinion, wedding stationery is one of the most overlooked elements. Your wedding stationery tells your guests so much about your wedding day. They are the first glimpse your guests will see, so it's essential they align with your vision and aesthetic. 

That's why we're so excited to tell you about Basic Invite, a stationery company that has a card for almost every major life moment! They have an incredible selection of wedding invitations, save the dates, bridal shower cards, and thank you cards.

Basic Invite Wedding Invitations

Here are a couple of things that really set them apart from other companies:

Color Options: They have almost every color you could possibly imagine! Every element in your design can be customized in over 180 color options. Now you can implement your exact color palette! Styling tip: We love adding bits of color to simple designs, either through a silk ribbon or with some unique stamps.

Did I hear sample?!...Yes, you heard me right. You can see EXACTLY what your invitation will look like in print before you make the leap to purchase. Better yet, not only will it be a sample of the invitation but they'll customize it with your information. Umm...amazing! 

Envelopes: They have over 40 different envelope colors, that's unheard of! I'm not going to lie, I do a little happy dance everytime I check the mail and I find a pretty envelope in the mail. Envelope Tip: After selecting an invitation suite that fits your style and aesthetic reach out to a calligrapher to hand address your envelopes, it really adds that personal touch!  

Best For Last...Variety: They have over 200 wedding invitation sets! This includes everything from your save the date to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, programs and even thank you cards! Talk about a one stop shop!

Candelaria Designs Studio and Creative Process | Lubbock Wedding Florist

Hi Everyone!

First off, thank you for stopping by! This session was so much fun and such a great way to show our brides and fellow vendors our creative process and show some super cute pictures of our studio space. We usually start the week with some fun foraging, lots and lots of processing, and finally our favorite part, designing. Wedding weekends are SO much fun; you'll typically find us jamming out to our favorite songs while designing in the studio. 

Candelaria Designs has been such a labor of love, and I honestly couldn't have done it without the support and love from my sweet husband, Kirk, and my awesome design team; Carly, Judi, and Jenna! From the moment I fell in love with flowers, my husband has been such a source of encouragement and has literally taken my vision for the studio and made it a reality. I'm beyond ecstatic to share these awesome photos by Katie Rivera Photography with y'all, enjoy!

Well, Hello! | Lubbock Wedding Florist

Let's get this flower party started! Wow, I've been meaning to post for SO long, but something always seemed to get in the way. I've been so nervous to post since I've never really felt comfortable writing, but man does it feel good to start!

This year has been absolutely amazing, I never expected to meet so many wonderful vendors, brides, and most importantly friends. I'm so happy I made the leap a year ago, and even more blessed to have met so many wonderful people along the way. 

Here's a little more info on the face behind Candelaria Designs:

I'm Shayda Craddick-lover of flowers and all things pretty. I graduated with a degree in Oil and Gas, but fell madly in love with blooms while I was planning my own wedding. I decided to reach out to some amazing floral designers so two weeks before my wedding I went to Dallas, TX to learn from Alicia Rico from Bows and Arrows. Y'all if you haven't yet seen their work go check it out now, they're AMAZING!!! 

I'll be posting the beautiful film from our workshop very soon!
