This morning I wanted to share some of the invitation designs from Basic Invite. Basic Invite is more than your average wedding invitation provider. What makes them so special that we couldn’t wait to share their services with you? From practically unlimited colour coordination options for every detail of your invitation plus a range of custom design capabilities, real hard-copy pure view samples, pretty Bridal Shower Invitations to choose from , to matching sets for RSVP, Save the date , Thank-You cards and more, customers using Basic Invite are treated to personalization choices galore!
With over 160 colour coordination options and 100 different font types, Basic Invite offers more customization flexibility and options than any other online stationary company on the market. Their website proudly boasts that “No one offers a wider array of instantly pre-viewable colour customization options than Basic Invite.” There are even over 40 colour options for envelopes to make sure your guests get a hint of the wedding theme from the moment they open their mailbox. (And thank you to the designers at Basic Invite for creating peel-and-seal envelopes so that our wedding planners and brides can avoid paper cuts from having to lick hundreds of envelopes!)
Even the paper options can be tailored from their standard luxe 120lb matte paper to shimmer cardstock or double-thick paper styles. What’s more? They even allow us the ability to order a real working sample of invitations that we create online so that we can see exactly how everything will look printed out and put our hands on the actual paper quality before placing a large order. No more guessing whether the colours are just right or if the layout prints perfectly! Once customers get their invitations and envelopes designed to suit their look perfectly, they can choose from over 200 stationary sets that include coordinating RSVP cards, Save the date, wedding invitations, wedding menus, wedding programs and matching thank you cards.
Our readers know how much we love to explore colour coordination, and the products services at Basic Invite are giving us so many options to play with that we can’t wait to share some of our ideas for every season with you:

Pretty Wedding Invitations for Spring Wedding
Or, if you prefer a pop of colour for your spring wedding, try a pink palette instead. Mimic the spring blooms in blush and rose colours in your text colours, or add a bit of cream-coloured lace embellishment and gold foiling to give the whole look an feminine antique look. We love the look of the perfectly-matched pink envelopes to the bride’s peony bouquet!

Pretty Wedding Invitations for Summer Wedding
Saying “I do” in the summer? Bring in the colours of the ocean with a nautical navy palette. Keeping it traditional with a clean black-and-white scheme on the invitation itself, punch up the colour in the envelope with a patterned blue envelope liner (Yes, even the LINER of the envelope can be customized!) and a royal blue Thank You card. Little blue sailboats will be charming atop menus and place cards tied on clean white napkins with little blue striped ribbons!

Pretty Wedding Invitations for Autumn Weddings
An autumn wedding gives couples free range to play with all the colours of the turning leaves! We love the way burgundy and blush pink look with raspberry and cranberry, all offset with a touch of warm gold. The “Elegant Kraft Wedding Invitation” pre-made design looks perfect tucked in a natural earthtone pocket envelope, and all you have to do is enter your own event information! This simple, elegant suite provide a perfect landscape to colourful floral arrangements, ensuring that your tablescapes and bouquets are the star décor of the occasion.
