FANTASTIC em! :)Review by Kara
My fiance and I want a simple but prettydestination ceremony and celebration this fall...September 2015. And we wanted that feeling to be reflected in our invitations. I was super excited when I came across these invitations because I was beginning to think that what we had in mind didn't exist. Then...I found exactly what we wanted at Basic Invite. And...they have such a terrific design tool online so you can "customize" your invitations any way/color/style that you desire (you can even eliminate areas/spaces to change up the look of it while keeping the general feeling of it's original design!) We had fun designing our Simply Formal Invitation just the way we wanted...all the way down to the smallest detail in the fonts and colors. I felt the pricing was a little high though, especially since we are having such a small wedding that we only needed the minimum that made them almost $5 each (yikes) but...Basic Invite automatically gave us an online coupon code for a slight discount, which pretty much covered the shipping it wasn't too bad. The shipping was SUPER fast and our invites arrived on our front porch within a week! And they look EXACTLY like they appeared! We LOVE 'em...and can't wait to send them out to our family and best friends soon.
p.s. Basic Invite also included a handful of complementary extra invitations as well just in that was very nice and unexpected. Thanks Basic Invite...I will recommend you highly :)

..simple and elegant...looks perfect :)Review by Kara
My fiance and I are wanting a very small and simple, yet stylish wedding and everyone knows that the invitation sets the tone of the entire affair....The Simply Formal wedding invitation is perfect for that. After combing LOTS of websites, we found it on the Basic Invite website and this style seemed to pop right off the page. We tweaked it a little bit with the fonts, sizing and border (SUPER cool tools btw) and we designed our custom invitation. I ordered a sample just to see what it will look like in person and held in my hands and it is absolutely stunning....and looks JUST like it's picture on the website! We love it! We will be ordering more very soon for our intimate wedding in a few months. THANK YOU Basic made this exciting time even more exciting and fun!

everything I wanted...and more :)Review by Kara
My fiance and I are still tweaking our final details for our "destination/semi-private elopement" in Sept 2015 and we aren't sure how many guests we are inviting to our we only ordered a sample of The Simple Formal invitation just to see what our guests will receive and how it will look in person.
First, I absolutely LOVE having the ability to "customize" the invitation with just a stroke of a key on my computer...from color to style to font to text....I designed it just the way I wanted it to look. I think that was the MOST fun for me to get creative with how our names and information will appear (we may order again with NEW information on it!) Secondly, the prices are super affordable and... it arrived in my mailbox within a week!
We totally LOVE how it turned out and the look and feel of it is PERFECT! Whether we order 10 or more...we will be happy with them and Basic Invite!
Thank you for such a FANTASTIC website!

Great, Affordable InvitationReview by Jessica
I ordered one invitation to see if I would like how it turned out and I was very impressed. I ordered the shimmer, and I think it was definitely worth the upgrade. It makes the invitation very high quality while still being a very reasonable price. I had a very hard time finding an invitation I liked, and once I found this I was so relieved. I would definitely recommend ordering the color booklet to pick out your colors, and you get samples of the paper types. Overall, I'm super happy with this invitation! Posted on 9/2/2014
GoodReview by Mandi
The print was very small and somewhat hard to read. Other than that I think they are great. The size of the invitations on the computer was some what misleading to their actual size but all and all I am happy with them. Posted on 9/2/2014
