You’ve just got engaged! Woohoo. And before all the hard planning begins you should celebrate with all your friends and family, that means an engagement party. This is the perfect time to introduce both sides of the family to one another.

Engagement invitations are a great way to start familiarising yourselves with Basic Invite so that you’re a pro by the time you design your wedding invitations. Creating engagement party invitations helps to get an idea of what colors, themes, and design styles you might like for your wedding invitations. Be sure to include the who, what, where, and when details on your engagement party invites and don’t invite someone you don’t plan on inviting to the wedding!

So how can you use Basic Invite to plan your wedding? Well aside from elegant wedding invites you can make wedding websites and other invitations. Everything is super easy to use and all in one place. You can also customise your invites to the max to make them truly personal.

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Over 800 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of our wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!

Keepsake Guest Books – Perfectly personalized wedding guest books are the perfect addition to your wedding day stationery. These customizable guest books have a ring hidden inside which allows them to lay perfectly flat for a classy and convenient look. With sophisticated designed pages it’s the perfect opportunity for your wedding guests to leave sweet words and well wishes.

Free Wedding Websites – Our all new wedding websites are completely customizable just like our wedding invitations! These wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is super convenient for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite!

Saying Thank You – after the big day you can use the site to say thank you too! Exceptionally useful when you get back from your honeymoon and you simply log in and create some pretty thank you cards to send to everyone.

Basic Invite takes all the stress out of choosing and designing invites, whether that’s engagement, wedding or even a baby shower! From what to include on a wedding invitation to the little details such as cute monogrammed stickers to put on the envelopes. They have also just released their foil invites which would be top of my list if I were planning. Hope you enjoy looking through the site and create something beautiful.
