After being in the wedding industry for over 8 years, I was there to witness the birth of many industry leading businesses that made wedding planning easier for both couples and wedding vendors.
Being a photographer and knowing about graphic design, I too dabbled in some invite designs and other graphics. To plainly put it, it’s hard to sit there and draft up a design from scratch. Especially when the design software requires you know hundreds of options to get your desired outcome.
Upon browsing through Basic Invite, I immediately fell in love with their interface. It was clean, elegant, and easy to navigate. If you choose the Wedding’s tab from the menu, it will display all of the wedding products available.
Before you get started on your invites, I would recommend you take advantage of Basic Invite’s free feature: Free Wedding Websites – which are totally customizable! They’re mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details, along with images, and a convenient map with directions for your guests. Keeping your guests updated online is a must, especially after the amount of postponements from the 2020/21 wedding seasons. You can even use their website design suite to match your wedding invites!
Once you’ve created your free wedding website, go on to designing your wedding invitations and save the date cards. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can adjust the littlest detail with their awesome design suite. Reminded me of a much simpler version of photoshop. Brace yourself for a few hours of designing, since we still have to choose the save the date cards, envelopes, collect addresses, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards!
Another feature I really loved was the free address collection service. Tracking down everyone is pretty time consuming in itself. You also want to make sure you get the correct address. Use the free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.
If you want to physically hold your invite before ordering 100+, you can order a printed sample of the invitation as well.
Basic invite is the perfect web tool to start off your wedding planning process. Set aside a couple of hours each week and you’ll have beautiful wedding invitations and save the date cards in no time, 5 business day delivery. Happy wedding planning!
