I try not to trade in wedding regret. But if I had to pick one of my worst planning snafus? Making my own wedding invitations. It’s not that DIY wedding invitations can’t be done (Meg made her own and did not hate herself for it). It just turns out that I didn’t actually have any desire to DIY my wedding paper. I wanted options, and I couldn’t find them, so I went for the next best thing. (Note to self: Rubber cement in un-ventilated rooms makes for a rough time.) The good news is that wedding invitations have come miles and miles since I was wedding planning, and now you can get super customized wedding invitations for about half of what it cost me to make my own, and they look twice as good. And few companies give you as many of those customization options as Basic Invite. (Don’t let the name fool you. Their designs are anything but basic.) Here are just a few ways they make it easy to make your wedding invitations special without making you break a sweat:

Basic-Invite-Color-Change

Almost Unlimited Colors: Most wedding invitations you can buy online offer a few variations on color, but they’re usually pretty limited (option A, B, or C). Basic Invite offers over 180 different color options (not a typo, y’all) on pretty much every element of every invitation design, and they even let you preview the changes instantly. So, let’s say there’s an invitation design you really love, but you’d rather have blue flowers instead of pink and green text instead of black. Just click a button, select your preferred color, and the preview will update automatically right on your screen. So you have full control over the entire design, not just option A, B, or C.

Try Before You Buy: So it’s one thing to create custom wedding invitations online. But then you get your order in them mail and realize, whoops, that pink was a little bolder than you anticipated. Well, Basic Invite is one of the only wedding invitation websites that lets you order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly what you’re ordering, from color to paper quality, before you go drop a couple of Benjamins on them on your invites.
