Do you know what I love maybe just as much as wedding garter heirlooms?? Paper. More specifically, I have a special place in my heart for wedding invitations. I love all of the little pieces that go into a wedding invitation suite, I love pretty envelope liners and colored envelopes, and I really love putting on stamps! As a wedding guest, I super love and appreciate getting wedding invitations in the mail. If you have sent me a wedding invitation or a card of any kind in the mail, the chances are high that I still have it!

It is just all too much, isn’t it!?
What I love about Basic Invite is that they don’t compromise on invitation design and quality AND they make the entire process of picking out affordable invitations and day-of-wedding paper goods so simple.
All online you can pick out the colors, the fonts and all of the little pieces that go into your wedding invitation, right down to the littlest detail, and then have a sample mailed to you. Yes, they will print out a sample of the wedding invitation that you designed and mail you a sample before you place your order. WOW!
Almost Unlimited Colors
Basic Invite is one of the few affordable wedding invitation design 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. And, then order a printed sample to touch and feel in person.
Having a printed sample is so important before placing your order for you wedding invitation. Basic Invite is one of the few websites will allow you order a printed sample of the actual invitation that you’ve designed so that you can see exactly how it will print. This is also important for testing the paper quality before you place your final order.
The printed sample from Basic Invite is such a big deal and an amazing bonus. I love being online (obviously!) but when I’m ordering paper or printed products, I really want to see it and feel it in my hands first. The fact that you can order a printed sample of your actual wedding invitation before your place your order is something amazing that Basic Invite offers.
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes
Nothing pops out in the mailbox liked a color envelope! I’m a sucker for a navy blue envelope with white fonts on the addressing!
Even better than color though is that all of their envelopes are peel and seal they can be quickly and securely closed. Your bridesmaids (or who ever you sucker into helping you stuff all of your wedding invitation suites!) will thank you!
Over 800 Wedding Invitation Sets
I’ve mentioned the term wedding invitation suite a few times now. Yes, when it comes to wedding invitations, they are often designed and sold as a suite or a set. A wedding invitation suite or set can really be anything that you want or need it to be. Set or suite just indicates a coordinated group of more than the wedding invitation itself.
A typical wedding invitation set might include a save the date invitation, an RSVP card and envelope, an enclosure with directions or travel information, rehearsal or day-after-the-wedding brunch information, and so much more.
With Basic Invite, all of their affordable wedding invitations are part of a suite or a set. Yes, you read that right! You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards all together as one set for each design. Oh, and don’t forget place cards and escort cards! There are so many little pieces that go into a wedding – it is comforting to know that you can get them all together in one spot and they will coordinate.
This is really great that Basic Invite offers wedding invitation sets, because the last thing you want is to commit to a design for your wedding invitations and then find out the week before your wedding that you also need menus and programs, and now you are having to start all over again, or trying to find something that sort of matches. You can have confidence that should you need extra paper goods for your wedding the coordinating details are available!
