Amazing Invites from Basic Invite

When my daughter got married last summer, I received an instant education about wedding invitations. I had no idea how many options there would be to choose from, and also how overwhelming it would be. We had some great wedding planners, but they weren’t much help when it came to invitations. I ended up using a company that was partnered with our reception site, but I wish that I had taken the time to look for a better option. If I had known about Basic Invite at that time, I totally would have used them!

Because I’m a designer myself, I have a great appreciation for beautiful typography, design work, and color. How wonderful that they do so much to customize the color choices! Ask any bride-to-be about her upcoming wedding and she will probably mention the color scheme. It’s kind of a big deal!

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.


There are also over 40 different colors of envelopes. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to envelopes so an invitation will stand out even before it is opened. The envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. After using a wet sponge to seal all of our invitations, I think that peel and seal sounds heavenly!

There is even a new type of design called Seal & Send Wedding Invitations for an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included. The guest's addresses are printed on the front of each invitation which means no envelope necessary. All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design, instantly. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple, easy, and super trendy.


The address collection feature is available for more than just the Seal and Send versions. Just use the free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.

You can also order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you place your final order. I’m glad I got to do that with my daughter’s invites and I personally would not use an invitation company unless they offered this service.


Basic Invite has over 1000 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.


I love that they offer free wedding websites. They are customizable to match your wedding invitations!
These wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite.
