Basic Invite was introduced to me by one of my 2020 couples because they used them for their invitations; however, upon further investigation, I discovered that they also offer save the date ideas to couples, which are fully customizable and offer tons of ways to make them your own!
Whether you’re looking for something elegant with pretty scripted font or something bold and beautiful, Basic Invite has tons of options when it comes to save the date ideas. Most of my couples do their engagement photos through them, so they tend to gravitate toward using save the dates that have a spot where you can use a photo. But if you prefer a simpler look or you didn’t get your engagement photos taken, there are also options that don’t include a spot for photos. If you’re super artistic or are a designer, you can always upload your own design too 😉
There’s something so neat about a save the date magnet. Your guests get to put them up on their fridge right away rather than losing track of their save the date in their pile of mail…which ultimately leads to them texting you asking “hey what day was your wedding again?” Yikes. Been there, done that. Basic Invite has cheap save the date magnet options which I absolutely love.
When my husband and I were planning our wedding, I feel like I was always looking for ways to be unique and not your “typical bride”. There’s something so unique about sending your wedding save the dates as post cards. Basic Invite offers wedding save the date post cards if you’re looking for something a little more fun and different.
If you aren’t sure what save the date cards you like after designing a few options, order them as samples! Basic Invite offers 5 free customized cards from by using the code 5freesamples in your shopping cart before you checkout! This is amazing because you can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before you have to place your final order.
Here are a few of the samples I ordered.
This one had a silver foil-stamped text across the image!
Absolutely love this trend of the “transparent” save the date or invitation! Major heart eyes.
