Ok, we have to do some real talk here. I had NO idea how hard it was to pick (or create) wedding invitations until I got married! No joke, Austin and I had our first fight over how many wedding invitations we were going to need, and what they should look like... Not our proudest moment! That doesn't even begin to talk about choosing what photo we would use!
1. Their COLORS!!! They have almost unlimited colors! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options. The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. Plus, you can even customize your envelope color (and they're peel and seal-your tongue will thank you later, and they offer FREE envelope printing from their address collecting service).
I hopped on their website and ordered some samples, and I LOVE the colors!
2. The Wedding Website option! Basic Invite allows users to create their own wedding website. Just like their invites, their wedding websites are completely customizable! They're mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images, and a convenient map with directions for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors, and a design suite to match your wedding invitations! Basic Invite was ranked one of the top wedding websites because it is SO EASY TO USE, not to mention it's free!
3. The SETS! Each of the wedding invitations is part of a set, so you don't have to worry about anything else. They have all the wedding stationery you need, from save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, to matching thank you cards! Their thank you card design is the best! Trust me, the last thing you want to think about after the wedding is designing your thank you cards, only to wait two weeks for them to arrive and then having to hand sign each card. You won't regret using a Basic Invite Thank You card.
4. Last but not least, their seal and send wedding invitations! These are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! Currently, they are offered in over 30 designs including foil options, and, like other products, they are customizable. What's special about the Seal & Sends is that guest's addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple and easy.
Now, you all know I'm a little bit of a critic, so this is my favorite feature. You can order custom samples! Having just one of each option helps so much! Being able to pick while the invite is in your hand is literally the best thing ever. I ordered some samples, just to test different qualities, and let me tell you, I was impressed. I didn't love the clear ones as much as I thought I would, but loved the idea of pairing them with a brightly colored envelope for that pop of color that I love! I really did think these were great quality and well priced. I would highly recommend using Basic Invite, and wished I had used them for my wedding!
