So you're planning your wedding,
and time has come to finally sit down and start thinking about your invites, your paper needs and even a website to keep your family and friends up to date on all things wedding related. There are SO many different invite places that you could go to, but i wanted to talk about one specific company today- Basic Invite.
While pursuing the internet and doing a little bit of research for a few of my 2021 brides, i always like to keep an updated list of vendors for them to look through to make their planning slightly easier. If you know me, you know how much i love paper goods. I think i’m still one of the few millennials who still sends out thank you cards after receiving gifts. So i stumbled upon Basic Invite, and goodness gracious, i think i’m in love. Here’s why:
When you’re starting to look for wedding invitations, you have to ensure you’re getting exactly what you want. There is no compromising on your invites, they have to reflect you as a couple and keep the theme of what your wedding will be on your big day. Whether that means dusty blues and silvers or forest greens and golds, whatever the case may be.
While looking into Basic Invite, I was blown away when I found out exactly what they offered to their wedding clients.
Not only do they offer a variety of different types of wedding invitations, but it’s all in the details people! They have over 900 different types of wedding invitation sets, you read that right- 900. Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set, which includes: save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding day menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards. But let’s not forget what these babies come in, the envelopes! Not only are your invites and sets customizable, but they also offer over 40 different colors of envelopes just to top it off! Such an easy way to make your invitations really stand out before even opening them.
After you’ve finally set a final guest list, and you have exactly how many invites you’re sending, which...in most cases is usually a lot. Normally, that would sound a little scary, hand addressing all of those beautiful invites. But fear not, Basic Invite not only can collect the addresses for you via social media link, they also do free envelope printing. No more hand writing each and every name, address and return info! All of that is taken care of for you, for FREE!
So let’s say you’ve sent out your invites and now you’re looking for a way to keep your friends and family up to date on what’s going on with the wedding and all of the fine details they want to know. Basic Invite also has a free wedding website you to take advantage of. They are totally customizable and mobile friendly! Now everyone can keep up with your wedding just by a quick look at their phone. With their free wedding website, you can upload all of your wedding day details, any photos you want to include, and even a map so your guests can conveniently plan the best way to get to your wedding. And before you even ask, YES you can match your website to your invites to keep everything streamlined and perfect!
So after finding all of this out, they are definitely at the top of my vendor list for my clients who need any paper goods for their weddings. They offer so many customizable options and they make the process simple. There is no second guessing what you order or if the colors will be the same online as they are in person or if they’ll be the quality you expect.
They offer so many customizable options for their products, it’s almost totally impossible not to find something you don’t love. When i was going through helping a client pick out her samples, we found a handful that we loved and had to narrow it down to her absolute favorite. There are so many options for you to go through and if you find one you like, Basic Invite also offers the ability to order a printed sample of your invitation so you can see the cards paper quality, and how it will look printed before you place your final order. Which totally solves any hesitation of ordering, you are able to see exactly what you’re sending!
All in all, the experience i had while browsing their website and inventory was amazing. I ordered samples to have to i was able to offer examples to my clients. The service was quick and simple, i didn’t have to second guess anything at all and the color/paper quality was top notch! I highly recommend them if you are needing to order and wedding paper goods! Check them out!
