One of the biggest challenges while wedding planning is going through ENDLESS websites and designs for your wedding invitations. Let’s be honest, it’s a tough task when there are tons of options out there for you to choose from. The process can be incredibly overwhelming so I wanted to give you the inside scoop on my favorite wedding invitation website – Basic Invite.
Basic Invite has gorgeous stationery you need for your day like; save the date templates, wedding invitations templates, envelopes, wedding menus, wedding programs, and thank you cards. Not only does it have stationery but a FREE wedding website. Seriously, Basic Invite has a ton for you to choose from but I love that their process isn’t super complicated like others. I have designed a lot of wedding invitations throughout the last 10 years of being in the industry and can honestly say that Basic Invite beats the rest.
Here are just a few things I absolutely love about Basic Invite:
Free Wedding Planner
As if Basic Invite isn’t incredible enough, they have a 100% free wedding planner for you to download and help with your entire planning process. You can download your copy HERE.
The websites are super user friendly and have tons of options. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images (bust out those engagement photos!), and a convenient map with directions for your guests. What’s even better is that you can match your website to the designs of your stationery so everything is cohesive.
Address Capturing Service
Along with your website, Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in your account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. Bye bye hand cramps!
I am a total sucker for enclosure cards and think they are great to include with your wedding invitations. Enclosure cards are not just limited to RSVP – you can include information for; directions, accommodations, reception/after-party details and your registry link. Adding your registry or Honeymoon fund information into enclosure cards is amazing because it is one of the #1 questions that guests will ask during your wedding planning process.
Almost Unlimited Colors
This is a GAME CHANGER. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it. I’m in love with the pumpkin and pine swatch colors.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. You can see the paper quality and how it will print in real life and make sure the card is perfect. When I received samples from them, the samples were sent in a gorgeous folder that broke down the whole ordering process with Basic Invite and had their entire color palette on one page so I can obsess again. Each page gave me a ton of information and I couldn’t get over how beautiful the sample book was!
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes
Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, you can match your envelope to your invitations and keep a cohesive look. All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely.
Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. If you’re someone who wants a luxury feel and look, foil is the way to go. It looks absolutely gorgeous in person.
