Hosting a princess theme baby shower? Planning a baby shower, just like any other event, starts with the invitations. Your invitation sets the tone for your event. Is your baby shower going to be formal or casual? Is it going to be elegant or simple? Finding the perfect baby shower invitation is a must for me (and most likely any host). It has to have all the needed details for the party; more importantly, it should match the party’s theme.
When hosting an event, I tend to gravitate towards printed invitations because they give your event an extra special touch. Plus, it is a really great memorabilia for the celebrant to keep, in your case, the mom-to-be. Yes, maybe online invitations are so much more convenient and sometimes free; but they also limit you on what you can put on the invitations. I don’t know about you, but being limited on what I can and cannot put and change on an invitation is one of my frustrations. Which is why today, I will be sharing fully-customizable princess theme baby shower invitations (and so much more) from Basic Invite & a gift at the end.

Basic Invite’s Princess Theme Baby Shower Invitations
Basic Invite offers A LOT of amazing invitation designs, including their really adorable princess theme baby shower invitations. Each invitation has their own unique quality which will suit everyone’s taste. If I’m going to host a princess theme baby shower, I’d probably choose the one with the castle. You can also check out their site for other baby shower invitations for girls.
Fully Customizable Invitations
Basic Invite offers invitations that are fully customizable. You can absolutely customize every little detail in your invitations. Their editor allows you to change everything in the invitation to your heart’s desire; from text position, font face & size, down to the littlest details. You can even change the colors of all the graphics & illustrations in your invitation; and you can choose from over 180 different color options. You can even add text if you feel like you need more details in your invitation; and just drag & drop to rearrange the text to your liking.
What’s even more cool is that you can instantly preview the changes you make as you do them so you can see right away if the color, font, or text alignment that you chose would work. There are also different design options for you to choose from for the back of your invitation; my favorite is the timeline option.
Depending on your chosen invitation, you’ll be asked to select your invitation’s foil type. Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose if you want a flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil invitations.
Just like their invitations, Basic Invite allows you to customize your envelopes as well so you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. You can choose the format you want the address printed on the invitation. If you want the invitation to match your color motif, you can choose from over 40 different color options. My favorite part is the custom envelope liner options they let you choose from. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order. How awesome is that?
Address Capturing Service
Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. They also offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
The Thoughtful Details
Basic Invite really did pay attention to all the details of the ordering process and makes ordering seamless to their customers. Here are some notable things that will make ordering smooth and easy for you:
- They give you the option to save your progress so if you accidentally click on exit (which I sometimes do), you’re covered and won’t have to start all over again.
- They let you review your order on different steps during the check out process so you can make sure that everything’s correct in your order.
- They give you an option to have someone from Basic Invite review your order for an additional price, which adds 2 business days to your order’s processing, to make sure that you didn’t miss anything. Of course, the fastest option would be making sure that you have reviewed everything which you can specify during the check out process.
- Once your order is placed, they will give you one more chance to edit or review your order before it gets processed.
- And since your progress is saved to your account, you can go back and re-order them anytime you need to. You don’t have to re-create the exact same thing all over again.
Tip: If you have the extra budget to spend, go for the Luxe Velvet paper. It’s so luxuriously soft! I am obsessed with how it feels!
