I’ve never done a product review before, but I was asked by Basic Invite to blog about their wedding invitations. I didn’t want to just share the talking points sent to me, and I wanted to use my own images, not just images they sent. Why? Because if I’m going to share something with you guys, I want to touch the product. I want to know what the paper feels like and see the quality of the items I’m sharing. It’s important to me that the resources I provide for my couples are resources I would use myself.
Here are all the things I love about Basic Invite.
There really is a lot to love about Basic Invite. My favorite feature though, is their custom samples. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to order a printed sample of the actual invite before you place your final order. You can feel the paper quality, check out the colors and see exactly how it will print. Did I mention they have real wood invites? I had to see these, and they did NOT disappoint!
All the Colors!
You’ve already invested time and money into your wedding day, and Basic Invite has tons of unique colors for their fonts, envelopes and text so you can match any color scheme. You can choose from over 40 different envelope colors so that your wedding invitations will stand out before your guests even open them! Envelopes are also peel and seal, so putting invites together is quick and easy. If you’ve never sent out a massive amount of invites, let me tell you that their peel and stick seals are GENIUS and I wish I had that when I was sending out 137 wedding invitations. Yes, 137 invites, not guests. We had a big wedding. This will save your life.
Ok, I’m exaggerating a bit on the life saving, but either way, this feature is awesome!
900 Different Options
Yes, you read that right! Basic Invite has over 900 options for wedding invitation sets. All of the invitations have a matching set to tie the theme together. Your invite can match your Save the Dates, Reply Cards, Directions, Menus, Programs and even Thank You’s! I love a good matching suite, and with so many items that can compliment your wedding theme, colors and vibes, you really can’t go wrong.
Lastly, your wedding website is FREE with Basic Invite. Their websites can be customized to match your unique wedding invitations AND they are mobile friendly! Because let’s be honest, we’re always glued to our phones, so a mobile friendly site is a good one. You’ll be able to share all the details with your guests on a wedding website from your favorite engagement photos to a map with directions. This makes it super convenient for your guests and it doesn’t take a lot of time to set up either.
