The Invitations

It took me a while to find the perfect place to order our invitations from. I knew what I wanted, and it seemed like every site offered some, but not all of what I was looking for. I had a vision of what I wanted them to look like, and luckily, all my fiancé requested was thick card stock.

I found Basic Invite after feeling completely defeated. It’s amazing what Google can do!!

Basic Invite offers custom samples, something other sites don’t. That was really important to me and my fiancé because I wanted to see what OUR invitations would look like when they were printed.

The invitation shopping process can be a bit intimidating because there are tons of different styles, templates, envelopes, prices, and colors to choose from. Some of the sites I visited weren’t as organized as Basic Invite, and it made it a bit difficult to navigate in my opinion. Basic Invite has over 200 wedding invitation sets, which include RSVP cards, name cards, thank you’s and everything else you might want to match your invitations. They also offer almost unlimited colors…something I found really awesome!

We decided to go with something simple, yet elegant and classic. I made sure I chose the thicker card stock to please the fiancé too! I was pleased with the pricing and all the different options I had. They have some really unique wedding invitations to choose from, including real wood invitations, clear invites, and rose gold foil!

The editing process was quick and painless. They offer a free address collection service to make your job a bit easier, but I already had everyone’s addresses handy from sending out our Save The Date’s. They give you a custom link to send your guests, and they fill out their info so you don’t have to…if I would have known, I would have opted that route because it would have saved me so much time!!

One thing I really wanted was our guest addresses and names to be printed on the envelopes. Believe it or not, some sites charge you for this service, and it’s not cheap. Luckily, Basic Invite includes it! You can customize your envelopes down to the color, and they have 40 for you to choose from!

I opted to have one of their designers take a look at our final design just to make sure everything lined up, and I didn’t spell anything wrong! The service cost me $20, but it gave me the piece of mind that the final product would be centered and look the way I wanted. The designer was quick, and very thorough. She explained everything, and sent me a proof to sign off on. That whole process took about a day, but it can take a few days from what I’ve read.

I grabbed some of their new wedding stickers to seal out envelopes because I thought they added a nice touch! All the envelopes are peel and seal too, which was a total time saver for me!

They don’t just offer invitations and stationary. You can shop tons of accessories and even keepsake guest books!

I’m so happy with the way they turned out, and I’ve already had a handful of guests tell me how much they love them! Our RSVP’s are rolling in, and I’m so glad I was able to get my dream invitations from Basic Invite!

I would highly recommend Basic Invite for any and all stationary needs. I know I will be ordering our thank you’s from them once I get some of our wedding pictures back!
