Basic Invites :: Your One Stop Shop!


Sometimes finding the right paper products are one of the toughest parts for my clients. Figuring out what to choose/design for your big day is a bit overwhelming. There are literally thousands of options out there from DIY to etsy, to printables and custom options. From online sites to create your own, or other sites to pick from templates. There are some that come in sets, and some that are all sold separately. So. Many. Options. And I have to admit, I’m not always the BEST resource. So many of my clients hire me after they’ve made their invite decisions. So, I’m not always involved in the process. Which is fine, but means I just don’t always know about the latest and greatest. Phew that was a really honest thought. Hello world – I am not perfect and I do not know ALL things!


I recently discovered Basic Invite, which sounds… kinda basic haha but is really quite incredible! Their designs are so elegant and fit every couple’s different styles. They aren’t all flowery, or all modern. Which I know is hard when searching on Etsy. So many sellers have great work – but it only comes in one style. They literally have every theme imaginable. Their wedding invitation ideas are a great place to start even if you’re not sure what your wedding style might be yet. They have over 200 different designs to choose from. Scrolling through their options might be the first place that inspires you! I’ve showcased a few of my favorites here, but be sure to see them all on their site. Some of my favorite things about Basic Invite are that they have over 180 color options for each design (allowing you to customize practically every aspect making your invites very unique!), as well as 40 different envelope colors, AND all of their envelopes are PEEL & SEAL!!! This makes all the difference in the world when you’re mailing these bad boys out. Your tongue will thank you ;-) Finally, one of my favorite services they offer – you can order a sample of your exact invite! So you can see and hold in your hand exactly what your invites will look and feel like before you pull the trigger. Seriously, so awesome.


Not only do they have invitation sets, but they also have gorgeous save the date ideas – which is incredibly helpful when you’re far out in the planning process, you may not even have your exact concepts nailed down yet. Don’t worry! You’re not alone! Save the dates are a great way to showcase one of your engagement photos, and they have so many photo templates available, it’s hard to choose just one.

It doesn’t stop with just weddings though, they have gorgeous bridal shower invitations and Christmas Cards! Speaking of Christmas, they currently have a 30% code on their site for all Holiday cards – if you’re behind like me, you’ll probably want to jump on this deal before it’s over. Use HOLI30 to get 30% off your next order!




Be sure to check them out on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter to follow along with their latest inspirations!

  1. […] We’ve been fans of Basic Invite for some time now. If you haven’t heard of them, Basic Invite is a rad site that allows you to make semi custom wedding invitations seamlessly through their site. They have tons and tons of templates (over 900!) to fit any wedding style and you can customize pretty much everything.  Each template comes in a full set – invite, rsvp, menus, programs, even thank you cards. Their ordering process is crazy simple and super affordable. You can order a sample before pulling the trigger – which is a great way to test the quality and just a good feel for your invites before ordering them all. And now, they offer clear invites – that are STUNNING! […]
