I‘m so excited to share a new-to-me resource for all the brides reading along! I have stumbled across a new and amazing online site that offers elegant wedding guest books and online wedding invitations (and much much more!). I have to admit, back when we got married (10 years ago!) there weren’t a lot of options to do this all online, and the options that did exist weren’t nearly as customizable– I would have LOVED to be able to get our wedding invitations online at a site like this!!!
Basic Invite has a fully online platform (that is mobile friendly too) that is super easy to use and allows you to see your edits as you make them. You can edit basically everything…colors, fonts, design, and much more. One of the biggest benefits of Basic Invite is that everything can be edited exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. This is one of the things that sets them from any other online stationery company I have seen! There are so many style options to meet every single couple’s wedding and style preferences.
I also ordered some sample invitationsso that I could get a first hand view of the quality, and from the presentation of the whole package to the invitation itself, I was blown away! The whole process is made to be so simple and easy, from choosing, customizing, ordering, and opening. The paper is thick and soft, and the colors printed beautifully! Here are a few photos I took from the sample invitation I ordered!
As a couple considering using them for your wedding invites, you can also order a sample of your exact invitation to make sure it looks exactly how you want before you commit to ordering a whole bunch of them. I would definitely take advantage of this as a bride!
Another awesome feature is that for couples who are low on time, you can also have Basic Invite address your wedding invitations! They provide you with an easy way to collect address (with just a link to share to those you want addresses for), and then they can easily be uploaded and added to your invitations!
One last thing that I loved about Basic Invite is that they also provide their clients with free wedding websites to use to communicate all the extra details to their guests. They are beautiful and easy to use, and such a great extra bonus!
If I was planning my wedding now, I would be all over this as a way to get your invitations taken care of beautifully, conveniently, and easily! You can find more at their beautiful website with all the options here: https://www.basicinvite.com
Here are some absolute favorites of mine from their site!

You're in the right place! As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business! I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).
