Basic Invite is an online store to meet all your save the date needs, save the date postcard needs and more. With over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets, they’ve got you covered. One thing I love about Basic Invite is how easy it is to customize your wedding invitations to your needs. Whether you are picking out a template or uploading your design, they have a ton of ways to modify and change your invitations to look just how you want!

As somebody who loves a good detail shot from a wedding day, I went ahead and tested out the website myself by ordering an invitation set. One amazing thing about this site is Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their invitation. This was great for me as a photographer, because I only needed one set for photos. For a couple getting married, however, it’s so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order.

With Basic Invite, figuring out everything you need for your save the dates is pretty darn easy. When I was ordering I was a little unsure of what all I needed to make a full set. I’m the kind of person who gets overwhelmed by a big menu, to give you an idea of my troubles. Scroll a little down and I was able to see more items within the same color scheme/set as well as photo examples of what would go well with my Basic Invite save the dates!
