If you’re looking for illustrated wedding invitations, you should definitely check out Basic Invite!
A few months ago I was emailed by an employee from Basic Invite asking if I would consider working with them to help brides find their illustrated wedding invitations. I hadn’t heard of Basic Invite beforehand, although that isn’t saying much since I’m not currently wedding planning! I was curious about them, though, because I definitely like to be able to recommend good vendors and companies to all of my brides as they plan (you can see more of my recs on the Details page of my website). I asked Basic Invite if they’d be willing to send me a sample of their illustrated wedding invitations, and they went a step further and allowed me to order not 1 but 6 samples through their website, as if I were shopping for invitations myself. It was an easy process to navigate through their website, and I was happy to see so many options for illustrated wedding invitations available. I mean there were hundreds! I picked the first 6 that really caught my eye, and had fun making them custom by choosing the design and color for the front and back of the invite, the type of paper they were printed on, and even the shape and color of the envelope. They honestly had every color you could imagine, and then different shades of that color on top of that! So step one–choosing, designing, and ordering samples–was a breeze. But how would they turn out in person? The package arrived at my house within a week and I opened it up immediately, excited to see how the illustrated wedding invitations looked. They were gorgeous!
I loved my choices and all the different papers I ordered were high quality. I don’t think you could find a better quality invitation suite with a company that makes the process so fun and easy anywhere else. So, I got back to the employee who had originally reached out to me and told her I would be happy to write a post for them. I really believe that their product would be one that my brides (you!), and any bride in the planning process (you too!), would be really happy with.
