Our wedding planning is in full swing and there is so much to do to get ready for our Fall wedding. Some of the big decisions for our wedding have already been made, such as locking in “the date” and venue. We have even chosen the wedding color pallet and the overall theme, the look and feel for how we want to style our big day.
Deciding on your save the dates and wedding invitations can be overwhelming, or at least it was for me. I’ve teamed up with Basic Invite to showcase their wedding invitation templates and how easy it is to create a beautiful invitation for your wedding or any events you are planning in the future.
Here’s a quick tip, before you start the invitation process sit down and decide on your wedding colors. What will be your primary color? Build around that shade to determine other colors that you want to bring into your big day. I knew that I wanted a shade of blue to be my primary wedding color on my pallet. Once I determined the exact shade, I then added other colors that complemented the shade of blue I chose.
After you have your colors narrowed down it will help you in the invitation selection process. A huge selling point when shopping with Basic Invite is that they are one of the few websites that allow customers almost unlimited color options. Instantly preview your cards with over 180 different color options. The expansive color options on Basic Invite sets the online stationery company apart from others.
Custom Samples and Envelopes
After creating your perfect invitation, customers have the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation. This gives you the opportunity to touch and visually see the invitations paper quality before placing your final order.
Branch out from the traditional white envelope and consider using your color pallet to select colorful envelopes that will enhance your custom invitations. I decided to choose from over 40 different envelope colors to customize my save the date, bridal shower and wedding day invites. Each envelope is unique in that they are completely “peel and seal”, so the envelopes can be closed quickly and easily.
Over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets
Each wedding invitation is part of a complete set. From save the dates to wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards – Basic Invite has you covered for your big day!
We decided to add wedding name cards to our set because we will have assigned tables for our guests at the reception. Place cards can help with communication on the big day and help direct your guests to where they need to go after the ceremony. This helps your wedding coordinator and takes all of the guesswork out of deciding where to sit for your wedding guests. We are also utilizing the wedding guest name cards to help with anyone who might have dietary restrictions.

Seal and Send Wedding Invitations
I think Stevie Wonder’s song “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” comes to mind when working with Basic Invite‘s wedding invitation services. They offer a seal and send wedding invitation option that is an all-in-one wedding invitation – including a tear-off RSVP postcard!
The Seal and Send is the newest service that has been added to their collection and brides are LOVING it. Currently, there are over 30 designs, including the ever-popular foil options, and, like other products, they are customizable. A unique feature to the Seal and Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation, making the envelope obsolete. You simply share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design. When you receive your custom order all you have to do is…
- add postage
- fold your invites
- and secure them with a sticker!
