I’m excited to introduce you to one of my favorite wedding brands…Basic Invite! I’ve been lucky enough to be a Basic Invite partner for almost two years now. I love to share their brand with my clients, and it’s the first place I recommend for holiday cards, cheap wedding invitations, and wedding placecards.

In this review, I’ll share my favorite aspects of Basic Invite and their wedding invitations and services. I hope it’s helpful if you are looking for affordable, beautiful and unique invitations for your wedding day (along with some other amazing free services you don’t want to miss)!

The Unique Options

A few months ago, I purchased one of Basic Invitations invitation samples for this styled shoot (images shared throughout this post). These clear invitations were the perfect mix of edgy and modern. Not going to lie, styling clear invitations was quite a challenge! But it was incredibly fun, and I love how unique these images turned out!

Basic Invite has (almost) unlimited colors for any element on an invitation, making them truly customizable. They also have over forty different envelope colors! This type of design freedom gives couples the chance to match their invitation suites to their wedding theme and color palette.

They also now offer a new and very unique type of invitation called “seal and send”—an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The best part is it has the guest’s addresses already printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary. I love how easy they make it!!

Free (Helpful) Services

Basic Invite offers more than just invitations! As a new bride-to-be myself, I’ve started to realize just how helpful services like this are!! Basic Invite offers:

  • Free Address Collection Service: With this tool, you can request addresses from your guests in a super simple way. All you have to do is share a link with guests, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing!
  • Free Wedding Websites: Like their invitations, their websites are fully customizable AND you can get a design that matches your wedding invitation suite.

Did I mention they are FREE?

"Shannon was so fun to work with! She helped capture our engagement event and was even accommodating when we had to change days due to bad weather. She had some sneak peek pictures to us by that night and pictures within days! On top of professionalism, she was such a sweetheart and pleasure to work with, thanks again Shannon!"

"Shannon is a phenomenal photographer who captured the most beautiful moments from our wedding week. Her energy, enthusiasm, and positivity put everyone at ease. The photos are stunning -- when I look at them, I don't just see how the wedding looked, but I remember how it felt. She is magic behind the camera. I am so, so glad we chose her to be the person to capture our wedding day.
