Wedding Invitation Packages

BOMB Wedding Invitation Package resources for >>>today’s<<< brides!

Does it get any more gorgeous than this?! Basic Invite asked me to check out their resources to see if I thought they were worthy of offering to my brides. Spoiler Alert: I checked out their Wedding Invitation Packages and not only was I blown away by the gorgeousness of their packages, but I also found that they do websites. (bonus: AND mama-to-be stationary and websites, too!! Which, if you know me, you know I’m obsessed with all things wedding and new baby!!)

I’m pretty much in love with this company.

TIP: Make sure you read to the very end because while I was browsing their website, I found something that is a GAME CHANGER!!!!

What I’m raving (and ranting a little) about in this post:

Wedding Invitation Packages

Creating A Wedding Website

Thank You Cards

(All from Basic Invite)

Their Websites:

Website perks I love
•The Social Media links at the bottom that encourage guests to follow along
•The websites are customizable and mobile friendly (YASSSS!)
•Speaking of customizable- something I SUPER LOVE is that the colors they offer are virtually endless. Thank goodness! This is a game changer.
(Check out their template library– they have over 500 styles!!)

What I think would make the website experience even better:
•An “undo” button. While I was customizing my website, I changed a color and messed up the gorgeous color pallet they predefined. It took me a minute to figure out which color was originally in there so I could undo what I did.
•It seems a tad slow. Albeit, I am admittedly impatient… 🙂

Their Stationary:

Stationary perks I love:
•The “nudge” arrows that allow me to move over the text just a hair, while staying on the same X-Axis
•The ability to ADD TEXT! When I was creating my own cards, I remember feeling so frustrated that I could not add a personal message about not bringing kids to our reception. (So I had to make my own in Photoshop and it sucked. I wish this company would have been a thing back then!)
•The color options- again, they’re virtually limitless.
•Text font choices!!! There are so many gorgeous fonts to choose from, and I loveeeee that
•Seeing my design as I edit. The live view as I’m working and changing things really helps me see exactly how my design will look.
•Free CUSTOM samples. YAASSSSSSSSS!!!!! Usually free samples leave me with questions because I really didn’t do anything but get the standard thing they send to everyone. This company allows me to design my card, and then ships it to me so I can feel it. LOVE this.

What I think would make the experience better:
•Again… An “undo” button. Since everything is so customizable, I need to be able to undo something when I mess up.
•An option to save my color pallet so that I could align my stationary colors with my website colors.

GAME CHANGER!!!!

You guyssss!!!!

What is this, you ask?? It’s a no-envelope-needed, customizable tear-off RSVP invitation.

Send & Seal Wedding Invitations:

What’s that mean?
It’s an all-in-one wedding invitation suite.
Your guests don’t have to do ANYTHING to RSVP because you’re providing them with a customized RSVP post card! They literally tear off their response, and stick it in the mail. (BEST!) This might be my favorite. Best yet: These cards are customizable as well, AND you can order a free (customized) sample.

I was wondering how my brides would input all their guests addresses, HOPING they’d have the option to upload an excel sheet.
YEP!! Easy as pie. And if you don’t already have a spreadsheet, they provide you with a template. Check it out!

Thank You Cards

Last, but certainly not least, Basic Invite also offers Thank You Cards for your wedding guests!! And just as you’d wish, these are also customizable AND you guessed it: you can create a card and order a free sample.

Gorgeous designs…

Some more information about their products:

Free Wedding Websites

You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options. The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. This is what sets us apart from any other online stationery company and is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples

Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their invitation so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order.

Seal & Send Wedding Invitations (Rocheal’s Favorite!!!)

Our seal and send wedding invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send is our newest collection and brides and LOVING them. Currently, we offer them in over 30 designs including our ever-popular foil options, and, like our other products, they are customizable.
