Wedding invitations were one of the things I had the hardest time with. You can read more about my experience here. It’s probably my least favorite thing of my wedding when I look back. I rushed it and found something super last minute and just ran with it. They were ok, but they weren’t super creative or amazing.
The original website I ordered my invitations from is no longer in business… cue Basic Invite. Basic Invite makes wedding invites easy and allows you to have stunning invites that will make your guests pumped for your wedding in no time AND stay in budget.
5 Reasons Basic Invite Is The Best
1. Almost Unlimited Colors
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail! This makes it so easy to completely align your theme and color scheme to your invitations.
2. Custom Samples
This might be the coolest feature, they actually allow you to order a printed sample of your actual invitation, so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place their final order. That’s AMAZING! No guessing, or seeing samples kind of like yours but not exactly. This leaves nothing to the imagination…which is exactly what you want!
3. Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes
They are just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to envelopes so that they can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. Wow! This would have definitely elevated our invitations. I would have definitely opted for something other than white.
All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal, so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. I can not tell you how big of a benefit this! My tongue literally went numb sealing envelopes!
4. Over 800 Wedding Invitation Sets
Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!
5. Free Address Collection Service
Use Basic Invite’s free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. If you are opting out of calligraphy due to budgeting, this will definitely save you time and give your invitations and more professional look than handwriting.
If I were to do it all over again, I would for sure get these clear acrylic invitations. I showed them to Jared and he said ” Why didn’t we get those? They’re so cool!” They make such an impact and are unlike anything I’ve ever seen and are surprisingly affordable!
If you are a bride, I highly recommend checking out Basic Invite and use code 15FF51 for 15% off your purchase. You’ll thank me for helping you stay in budget! (I’m not making a commission off of this, just thought I’d help you save a penny!)
