If you’re already part of my Facebook wedding shopping group, you’ll know that I love learning about and sharing about wedding-related companies to help you plan your wedding day. Basic Invite is a high-end but affordable online wedding invites company that also specializes in custom wedding websites!
Basic Invite allows you to order a printed sample of your invitations so you can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before you have to place your final order. Honestly, this is super important! My husband, Robbie, and I didn’t choose a company that provided this service and after receiving our invites, I felt that they were a bit smaller than I had hoped. It’s hard to imagine what it will actually look and feel like until you have it in your hand.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can choose from over 180 different color and foil options! You can even change the color of each element on a card that way the card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. Basic Invite says, “This is what sets us apart from any other online stationery company and is our biggest draw.” When creating our own wedding invites, I found that the other invitation companies had extremely limiting options. You have to love everything about a specific design because there are no options to customize it. Or maybe you love a wedding invite design but can’t find anything to match! Each of Basic Invite’s wedding invitations are part of a set. They have all the wedding stationery you need, like save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards! This really helps to pull your entire look together and is great for those dreamy flat lay detail images that your photographer will capture on your wedding day. The little details really do matter!
They have gone above and beyond with their extra services like their free address collection service, seal & send wedding invitations, over 40 different colors of envelopes, free printables, and free wedding websites. Their wedding websites are completely customizable too! They’re mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images, and a convenient map with directions for your guests. And just like their matching templates for your set of wedding invitations, they also have a design suite to match your wedding invitations.
When I asked what their seal and send wedding invitations were, Basic Invite said, “Our seal and send wedding invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send is our newest collection and brides are LOVING them. Currently, we offer them in over 30 designs including our ever-popular foil options, and, like our other products, they are customizable. What’s special about our Seal & Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple and easy.”
I love that Basic Invite is keeping up with new trends, offering easier ways for brides and grooms to organize their invites, and allowing their customers to fully customize their products. This allows brides like you to get exactly what you want instead of settling for something else.
