As a wedding photographer I get to photograph many different wedding invitation suites. I also love to find value for my clients. That’s why I was so excited when Basic Invite reaches out to me to sample their invitation suites.
Basic Invites is a print and stationary company that specializes in print wedding invitations, announcements, and photo cards for various special events.
It was really fun being on the other side with of things during this process. Normally I’m the one photographing the invitations purchased by the bride and groom. It was really cool to see another part of the wedding planning process.
I really couldn’t believe how easy it was to order and customize my invitations and personalized thank you cards. I think the hardest part was choosing just one. They have almost unlimited colors to choose from and many gorgeous templates. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options. The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. Now if you aren’t in to all that customization their standard preset templates are a perfect option. They are beautiful, elegant, and they have over 900 options to choose from. You are sure to find some thing that you love. And the color doesn’t stop there! They actually have 40 different colors for their envelopes! That’s a big thing that I found other companies fall short at. With basic invites you’re sure to find an envelope and invitation suite that matches your personality and your wedding’s colors theme.
Another great service they offer that I wish I had the opportunity to try out is there free address Collections service. They save you the time and hassle of not only writing out your wedding guests address but also the time and hassle of collecting those addresses. You can either choose to send them the addresses you have gathered or send a link to your wedding guests and allow them to type in their address is. I know wedding planning is a lot of hard work. That’s why I was so excited to see this feature. I believe it will truly help bride and groom’s save time and focus on what really matters on their special day.
creating a wedding website can be hard, but not with basic invites. They are mobile friendly website are super easy to set up. And with 180 custom colors and design suites you can perfectly match your website to your invitation suites. I took just a brief few minutes to look through their design feature and I have to honestly say I wish designing my own website was this easy! The templates are gorgeous. You can put everything from details about your event to your personal story on there. They also have places where you can link your registries. But my favorite feature definitely Hass to be a gallery feature. You can display your beautiful engagement photos right on your very own website! As things become more and more digital I think it is so important for every couple to create their own custom wedding website. You never have to wait for your guests to RSVP when it’s as simple as an online link.
All in all I have to say basic invites it’s not your basic invitation company. Everything I’ve seen them do goes above and beyond my expectations. Even their packaging is fantastic! everything came in a sturdy envelope and was wrapped beautifully in a portfolio showing off a few of their other options. you can check out all their amazing products at https://www.basicinvite.com
I seriously cannot wait to photograph more of these invites!
