Basic Invite

Wedding season is just around the corner. You may be planning a  Stock the Bar Party, a  Bridal Shower or your  Bachelorette Party, whatever event you are planning  Basic Invite has you covered!  

*I was compensated by Basic Invite, but all opinions are my own.

When I was planning my dream wedding, I was fortunate enough to have an uncle in the printing company and was able to get all of my paper essentials from him as a wedding gift! I know, how lucky was I - I was able to completely design the paper products as I wanted and it saved me a fortune because we all know how expensive those essential paper products can be! However, if you don't have those resources at your disposal Basic Invite would be a great option for you! Although they have a wide range of different special occasions you can buy invitations for (Baby Showers, Graduations, Thank you cards, etc) my main focus today is going to be their wedding section; probably because I miss everything about planning my wedding and I want to relive the entire planning and the actual day all over again!

Basic Invite has multiple categories within the wedding section, you can pretty much find whatever type of paper product for any part of your wedding there. They have wedding invitations, wedding enclosure cards, save the dates, wedding day accessories, programs, menu cards and bridal shower invites! It really is a one stop place to get all of your wedding paper goods! 

Basic Invite is one of the very few online companies that provides their customers with unlimited color options and instant preview online. This was one of my favorite parts of the website because not being able to see what the final product would look like before is not an option for me. I played around with making a mock up save the date and loved that I could edit the fonts and colors. Below the mock up were matching items that would go with my save the date; I really liked that because I didn't have to search the entire site to find a matching menu card or a matching RSVP card.




If you have family members like me and the weight of the paper is a very important part of the paper products, it can sometimes be very difficult to order online. My uncle who did my printing for me, lived about 2 hours away so it wasn't like I could just run over there feel the paper and pick it right away. I had to go to other stationary stores and feel the paper and see if they had anything like that and when they didn't I had them mail me samples of the paper. Basic Invite will do the same thing; you can request a sample with your design on it at a cost of $2.99. This is such a great tool that Basic Invite has because when ordering things online it is so hard to know exactly what the feel and weight of the paper will be and how your design will look on that style of paper.

Another problem you may have remembered for me during my wedding planning process were the wedding invitations envelopes. I was so worried about my invitations looking so plain jane and everything being white on white, but luckily I was able to find some navy envelopes. This is something you don't have to worry about with Basic Invite..they have over 40 different colors to choose from and it will add a unique touch to your wedding invitations!

I hope that when I get married that anything that can be made easier for me happens! I know I would be one of those potential bridezillas. Lol. Because what bride doesn't want everything for her wedding to be perfect! I love the fact that Basic Invite lets you customize your invites and also get a sample of them. How awesome is that!
