We talk about wedding invites a lot here. That’s because we think they’re one of the most important “first” wedding details your guests will see. They set the tone for your wedding. From the color to the font, your Save the Date and invitations are a chance to create your overall wedding aesthetic. But guess what? Just because you want gorgeous wedding invites doesn’t mean to you to spend a small fortune. Which is why we are big fans of Basic Invite.
Customizable (and Cost-Effective) Wedding Invitations
With prices starting at $0.99 (the average price for 200 invites is $1.53/each), their wedding invitation collection is significantly less expensive than other online options without sacrificing quality. In fact, they are one of the few websites that allow you to customize your invitation down to the smallest detail.
You can choose from over 180 different color options for every element of your invite, allowing you to match your save the date cards and invitation suite to your wedding theme or favorite colors. Once you decide on a design and envelope color (they have 40 options), you can order a personalized sample so you can see EXACTLY what your wedding invitation suite or Save the Dates will look like.
Build Your Complete Wedding Invitation Set
Each of the Basic Invite wedding invitations are part of a set, so you can match not only your Save the Dates and wedding invitations, but your enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and thank you cards. You’ll also want to take advantage of their free wedding websites, which consistently rank in our Top 5 choices for couples looking for an easy-to-use, mobile-friendly website to keep guests informed and manage RSVPs.
They also recently introduced their Seal & Send collection, which we are 100% obsessed with. These all-in-one invites include a tear-off RSVP postcard and the guest address printed right on the invite, which means no envelopes! Once you choose from one of their 30 customizable Seal & Send design options, all you have to do is fold your invite, add a sticker and postage, and you’re done!
Our Advice? Definitely Use their Free Address Collection and Guest Addressing
Hiring a calligrapher or addressing your wedding invites yourself takes time and money. Basic Invite makes it easy to collect and print your guest addresses with a few clicks. Simply share the custom link with your guests via e-mail or social media, and they’ll address your wedding envelopes with all your guests’ addresses in a beautiful font…for free.
