How To: Customize Your Wedding Invite | Wedding Invitation Ideas

Designing your wedding invitation can be such a daunting task, especially when it seems like each one you receive is fancier than the last.

My advice? Start by selecting your wedding theme and colors, and create a mood board for your overall vibe. Next, check out plenty of invitation designs for inspiration.

When brainstorming wedding invitation ideas, Basic Invite is one of my go-to resources for clients and I am constantly impressed with what they have to offer. I encourage all of my couples to stay organized and calm throughout the entire wedding process, and designing your invitations and paper goods are an important aspect of that. 

One of the coolest things about Basic Invite is that they have 900 wedding invitation sets. Save the dates, invites, menus, programs, and even thank you cards. As overwhelming as it may seem, there is nothing worse than having too few options and feeling stuck and pressured to choose a design that you don’t fully love.

In addition to providing beautiful, customizable paper goods for your big day, Basic Invite offers free wedding websites that are mobile friendly and extremely intuitive. On them, you can upload all of your wedding details, images, maps and directions. As a plus, they also have 180 custom colors to choose from (amazing!) and a design suite that allows you to match your site to your invitations.

I love when couples match their wedding stationary to the overall vibe of their day, which is why I was thrilled with the items we received from Basic Invite for this Art Deco/Gatsby-inspired styled shoot I produced. Being able to customize the invitations and place cards to fit our theme, tablescaping, and color scheme was so crucial in pulling off the entire look.

Another great feature is getting custom samples. Pressing “purchase” on 150 invitations you haven’t seen or touched is scary - especially if they don’t turn out the way you’ve imagined. The good news? Basic Invite allows you to order a printed sample of your invitation to ensure the paper quality is up to your standards.

Basic Invite’s newest feature is their Seal & Send collection, an all-in-one wedding invitation with tear-off RSVP postcards included! Send & Seal will print your guest’s addresses right onto the invitation, no envelopes necessary. All you need to do is share a link with your guests, collect their addresses, and upload them into your design. Once you get your order just add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker. Don’t worry, the Send & Seal collection is just as customizable as their other sets.

As an added bonus, my clients + readers receive 20% off all orders with the promo code: weddingsbysabrina.
