Brides, how many times have you had a color you were interested in for invites or something similar and you were left without anything remotely close to what you originally wanted?

Behold, Basic Invite! Basic Invite is one of the few sites out there that allows its customers virtually unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design for your wedding invites (or bridal shower or bachelorette!) you can change the color of each element on the card to over 160 different colors. By having all these options, you can make sure the card is exactly what you want it down to the tiniest detail. Most typical stationery companies don’t allow these options, making Basic Invite unique in nature.

Also, not only can you choose dozens of color options, at Basic Invite you can also order a printed sample of your actual invite so you can see how it looks in hand. These wedding invitation samples are gorgeous! There are classic invites, traditional, modern and everything in between. The unexpected colors like teal, brown and lavender are amazing. I love the gray one with what looks like pink pearls sweeping over the top. So lovely! When you’re designing your wedding cards, Basic Invite has thought of everything, with custom directions, RSVP, accommodations, ceremony and registry cards.

How about these save the dates too?  The one with the fireflies is sheer perfection. All of the different photo options are incredible too. You can even create Save the Date magnets, perfect to make sure guests remember your big day is coming up.


The bridal shower invites are to die for too. Don’t even get me started with this bridal shower one. Tres chic!

Basic Invite doesn’t forget the details either. They have over 40 different colors of envelopes! Couples can choose a color that stands out in their guests’ mail piles, making them bright and eye-catching. Best of all, the envelopes are all peel-and-seal, so they can be quickly and securely closed without that gross aftertaste from licking.

With priority shipping, Basic Invite promises your order within five business days. Choose the “Getting Started” tab for an easy, step-by-step run through of everything you’ll need to know for getting your perfect invites. Couples are reminded of what to do six months, four months and two months prior.


Basic Invite even has a blog where photographers guest write and provide plenty of gorgeous images. You can find out more here.

After you’re all good and married, revisit Basic Invite for your custom thank you notes. You can even design birth announcements, baby showers or even birthdays. Stick around and check out their free printables. There was a Valentine’s chocolate wrapper full of cute little X’s and O’s and these adorable little retro flags. There’s also plenty of bunting, cocktail stirrers and even a watercolor calendar!

Right now, Basic Invite is running a special, 15 percent off everything with code 15FF51.
