Your earliest chance to set the tone of your wedding is in the stationery you send. The save-the-dates and invitations are usually the initial glimpse of your wedding style that your guests see, so you want to make a powerful first impression. If you’re looking for chic, cool wedding invitations or customized bridal shower invitations to fit your unique personality, Basic Invite has you covered. (Don’t let the name fool you; they’re anything but basic.)
Basic Invite offers a bunch of unique features that you won’t find with other online wedding stationers, including “almost unlimited colors” and custom samples. They are one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options for each invitation and instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card so you can get your piece exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. You can also order printed samples of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print (no guessing on color) and feel the paper quality before you place your order.
All of their invitations are part of a set, so you can have your whole stationery suite in a coordinating design if you choose. They offer more than 200 sets from which to choose. The option to have your invitations, programs, menus, and thank you cards all bear a similar look can save you a headache down the line; it eliminates the need to make more choices when you’re already up to your ears in planning decisions!
They also have everything you need for your wedding day, including personalized guest books and table placecards. If I could go back a few years and do my wedding all over again, I would definitely get a guestbook. I chose to forgo one in favor of custom blank cards on which guests were asked to write messages to us. A whopping total of 2 guests wrote us messages! I can’t help but wish we had more messages from guests on that day. I would have loved to have a personalized guestbook there. Don’t even get me started on my placecards. I slaved over them, writing the names in calligraphy in the days leading up to my wedding…like I had nothing else to do! In hindsight, ordering escort cards would have been so much easier (and time-saving).
You can also take advantage of their free address collection service to request your guests’ addresses. Share a link, let guests submit their address, and get free envelope printing, courtesy of Basic Invite. It’s included in the invitation suites.
