When I was planning my own wedding, I remember one of the most challenging pieces was putting together our wedding invitations. Where to get them? How to word them? What kind of paper to use? Include colors or keep it simple? What is invitation etiquette? The choices seemed limitless and I had no clue where to start. I knew I wanted wedding invitations that reflected me and my husband as a couple, but I wasn’t sure how to achieve that. Since beginning my career in the wedding industry, I’ve developed quite a wanderlust for dreamy wedding invitations, and now planning out an invitation suite is so fun to me! So recently when Basic Invite reached out to me about featuring one of their wedding invitations on my blog, I was intrigued and excited. I had never heard of Basic Invite before, and I was curious to learn about what they offer since I know what a struggle planning an invitation suite can be for brides. After going through the design and ordering process myself, my honest opinion is that Basic Invite is a great option for brides! I really enjoyed creating this invitation suite online (I’ve always loved the name Mary Claire so it was fun to design something for this fictional bride of mine), personalizing it to my taste and vision for these images, and as a bonus it came to my doorstep so quickly!
So in my quest to explore their site and the customization features, what I personally came to love about the selection at Basic Invite is autonomy you get in the design process. You truly get to pick almost everything! Font colors (there are 180 options), paper type, font style… so many choices. Plus, they’ll even print addresses on envelopes for you (which are peel and seal), which is a huge time saver and hand saver. I remember the marathon process we had for addressing our wedding invitations and I can attest that having addresses printed would have been fabulous! As I perused their website to design the suite for this post (I went with a romantic, spring garden wedding theme!), and found that the products can really be tweaked to come out just how you want it. Also — I have to add — they have a little chat thing that pops up while you’re designing and I actually used it multiple times to ask questions. They were super helpful and fast in their responses.
As far as designs go, they have beautiful classic wedding invitations that just need your specific wedding details and then you’re ready to roll! I also really love that they allow you to order a printed sample of their invitation so you can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before you place the final order. Another nice feature I enjoyed is that each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. So if you need save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, or wedding programs, you can find each of those in the same design. They even matching thank you cards!
Finally, with how plans can change so much these days, you might also love this little piece of info: they also offer free wedding websites, too. Their websites are completely customizable, mobile friendly, and easy to use. Apparently they even offer a map feature with directions for your guests, which is pretty cool for the vision learners out there — aka, me. 🙂 I think my favorite feature about the websites is that you can have the same design on your website that you used on your wedding invitations, which makes the whole experience really seamless and beautiful for your guests!
