In 2020, I married the love of my life in a small ceremony covered with succulents and burlap. Maybe not the best combination when you imagine it – but the final look was perfect. Everything went smoothly – except for the invitations. I had to order invitations from three different places thanks to mess-ups that they couldn’t fix in time for the wedding. While I absolutely loved the invitations, in the end, try a trusted business to buy from the first time (not the third).
Your bridal shower is the best “tester” for a quality invite print before purchasing your wedding invitations – assuming you have enough prep time. Let’s cover some of my favorites I recommend and love:

I found the cutest and BEST floral bridal shower invitations template at Basic Invite that is absolutely perfect for a springtime wedding shower – because planning is key! The watercolor shades are just *chef’s kiss* and print exactly as pictured. Of course, this isn’t the ONLY one I found…
If you’re more of a minimalist or love the classic look, but still love the floral vibe, this one is for you! With a light style background floral layout and a script font that is elegant to a tee, it’s a definite fan fave.
Last, but not least, the bridal bunch with peonies. Personally, I’m a fan of brunches. I love getting my events done in the morning with delicious breakfast foods and having the rest of the day to recoup.
And, an honorable mention: The Partea Bridal Shower Invitation. I found this unique invitation bridal shower style to be super fun! Plus, who doesn’t like a tea party?
I strongly believe that the invitation services I ordered when planning my wedding were not ready to deliver what they promised. I ordered from Etsy, which ended up with the incorrect date – twice. And another small shop on Facebook that missed our deadline. Finally, I ordered from a trusted service and sent out our invitations.
To avoid dealing with problems like I did, I always recommend checking their reviews and results. Check out their Instagram page to view real-life prints or check out their Pinterest and see if they’re actually active on socials (vs. just being a stand-still site).
I will always only recommend brands I trust, and Basic Invite is no exception. I like and support Basic Invite thanks to their unlimited color options with instant previews (so you’re not left guessing) and the ability to customize what you want. You’re also able to order a printed sample of your actual invitation before you place your order, ensuring it’s up to your standards. Plus, you have the option of foil in gold, silver, and rose gold (flat or raised) on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off with the coupon code: 15FF51
I love these! The colors are beautiful. I’ve been married for 14 years, we just celebrated our anniversary two days ago. So this was before all the pretty invitations, Pinterest and cool things lol. Some days I’m like we just need to get remarried so I can plan a big pretty party. 😂
