Basic Invite – Cool Wedding Save-the-Dates and Other Great Features

For today’s Friday Five, I’m excited to share with you a wonderful wedding invitation company, Basic Invite. I got to play around to design these invitations and I can totally see how couples will be able to find what they need through Basic Invite. As a Seattle wedding photographer, I get to see a lot of different wedding invitations. Basic Invites provided me with my choice of a few samples so I could try out their products and I was quite impressed by how customizable their cards are. Today, I’m sharing 5 features that Basic Invites offers to help you with your wedding invitations!

Cool Wedding Save the Dates

They offer a large selection of  cool wedding Save the Dates to let your guests know about your wedding! You can designs custom ones with a photo of you and your boo. If you already know your design, it’s so easy to pick a Save the Date that coordinates with your wedding invitations.

All the colors

I remember when we were shopping for our own wedding invitations, it was hard to find invites with just the right color that matched our wedding look. At Basic Invite, they offer more than 180 different colors and over 40 different colored envelopes. I was super impressed that you could customize the color of just about anything – the font color, the design color, the background color. The options are endless!

Free Address Collection Service

In all the times that I’ve sent out a large number of cards to family and friends (like our wedding invites, or our annual holiday card), the part that takes the most time is collecting and checking all the addresses. It’s so much information to keep track of! Getting back a returned envelope is the worst feeling. Basic Invite provides a free feature where you can send your guests a link, they submit their address, and they offer free envelope printing.

Custom Samples

While most other wedding invitation companies offer you samples of general invites, Basic Invite offers you samples of your actual wedding invitation so you can see if the colors you choose in your own hands. You can feel the paper and see what’s that like, and how it goes with the envelope you chose. Ordering a large set of invites is a big commitment and investment and this really helps you complete your order with confidence.

Place Cards, Thank You Cards, Wedding Coasters

Basic Invites also has other paper stationery that you might need for your wedding day. The best part is that they can all coordinate and match. I love some of the unexpected things like wedding day coasters that will really awe your guests.
