Basic Invite - Customizable & Vintage Wedding Invitations for You

While preparing for your wedding can seem like a monumental undertaking at times, one area that can be done in a simple and fun fashion is that of creating and sending out your wedding invitations. With so many options out there, it is great to have a company you can trust in Basic Invite, our newest sponsor.

While this post is brought to you by Basic Invite, you should know that we have gone through the process end-to-end of customizing several invitations, placing an order, and seeing the quality of these invites first hand. We even took some neat photos to share with you here. It is with this knowledge that we are able to highly recommend Basic Invite for your wedding stationary needs.

Of course, you are now likely wondering how purchasing custom invitations through Basic Invite would work for you, and what they offer that other services do not. It’s a valid thought, and one we’d like to answer for you now:

customizable wedding invitations

What immediately drew us into ordering wedding invitations through Basic Invite was the easy-to-use customization feature that enables virtually unlimited color palettes that can be applied to an assortment of card elements such as the text, background, and pre-designed graphics. The level of detail is actually quite astonishing in this area!

It is this flexibility in the color and ability to adapt the great starting designs to meet your specific needs that is appealing, and the system itself is simple to use so you don't need to feel like you need a graphic design background (like we have ourselves) to use it :)

The wedding invitation options that you have are substantial, and they are broken out into different classifications to make finding what you have in mind easy. Filtering based on theme, for example, allows you to narrow down your options in ways that will suit your aesthetic. For us, we were immediately lured by the vintage, typography, and modern categories as these play into our personal tastes.

Another great option is to incorporate photos into some of the invitation templates. This is a perfect way to utilize engagement photos you've had taken and to help your guests get into the mindset that...you're getting married!!!

wedding invitation sets & Envelopes

If you are looking for something a little more elaborate, Basic Invite's 800+ wedding invite sets provide the perfect option to put together save-the-dates, wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards all in one place.

While we may often think of these things being separate from one another, as the time they are sent out can be quite spaced out from one another, the reality is that having all of these items produced at one time makes for a simpler solution so you don't have to sweat any of these things as you get close to, and past, your wedding day.

You can, of course, order different types of stationary products at different times as well - and finding your way back to the set you originally used is as simple as reviewing the past order you placed in your account.

Regardless of whether you are just ordering wedding invitations, or a wedding invitation set, it is great to realize that these come with envelopes already. True to form, envelopes themselves have a lot of color customization options, with over 40 different colors to choose from.

Having held these invites in our own hands, we are pleased to let you know that the quality is top notch. Even our custom invite with a photo we took of ourself looks great - a very accurate representation of our image, and no noticeable grain that you might have from a lesser vendor.

extra perks of basic invite

Basic Invite is an excellent source for ordering wedding invitations with ease, and their brand is designed with you in mind in other areas where it offers free resources for you to utilize.

During the step-by-step process of ordering invitations, you will come to notice the free address collection service that you can leverage to more easily get addresses from your prospective guests and have this synced to your account, and printed (at no additional cost) on the envelopes already. This is a huge time saving feature, and one we would have really loved to have taken advantage of back when we were planning for our own wedding had we known about it.

Another great free feature is Basic Invite's wedding websites, which allow you to customize web pages to detail your wedding event, add photos, and provide a map with directions for your guests to quickly reference. Just set it up and send it out via email or through social media!

best features

Ultimately, the best value provided by Basic Invite is it's apparent desire to make people happy in the way they know how - by providing an excellent resource for wedding invitations and other aspects of the wedding planning process.

Unlike many websites out there offering similar services, one of the key features that helps Basic Invite to standout to us is the ability to order one off custom samples. This means you don't need to feel tied down to ordering a large quantity of invites until you are 100% sure it is right for you. As consumers ourselves (you know...people who buy things), it's this sort of simple practice that wins us over again and again, and even more when backed by high quality products such as these.

Aside from this, the overall site layout and easy to comprehend user interface makes actually putting together your custom invite and ordering simple. This is an area that could have easily ended up being something that made this process more challenging, but it's design is very user friendly and ready for you to start putting to good use yourself. We're happy to report that even if you don't feel like doing it yourself, and want to pass the project on to your mom to take care of, she shouldn't have any trouble!! :)


Basic Invite comes with our seal of approval. Having ordered, seen, and felt their wedding invitation samples that we custom created in our hand has made us believers that this is a product with a lot of potential to be useful to anyone looking for wedding invites (and invite sets) themselves.
