Are you looking to create one of our Premium invitations? For a fun look into our Premium Invitations, you can check out our video HERE as well as the awesome features that we have.

We'll provide the instructions to do that below! But first, let's talk about our Premium invitations, what they look like, and what features they include.

All of our invitations are labeled as "Free" or "Premium" in the gallery. 

All of our Premium offerings allow you to create an invitation with a beautiful, fully customized design, as well as receive/manage RSVPs and use host tools like polls and what to bring lists. The experience will also be ad-free for your guests. 

Once in the gallery, select a "Premium" invitation of your choice by clicking it once. From there, you will be able to select your design elements. 

The design page is where you will pick your desired design elements like your envelope color, stamp and liner, as well as adding your own branding! Click the labeled tabs on the left side of the page to choose from your different options. When you're all done, click the green "Continue" button on the top right corner to be taken to your invitation's details page.

Let's take a look at the design page below:

The edit page is where you will input your event details such as event title, date, time, location and host contact info. 

a. Required Fields: You must enter the event title, event type, host name, and event date/time.
b. Non-required fields: You are not required to enter a phone number, location name, or address on your invitation.
c. Hosting Tools: You may add a Photo or Text Insert card to your invitation to provide additional information for guests (i.e. "No gifts." "Park in the back", etc.) You may also create a Poll or a What to bring list to engage your guests even further.
d. Invitation: You may click directly onto your invitation to edit text, change fonts, and font colors.


On the edit page, you will also see "Additional Options" where you can adjust your RSVP Style, enable or disable the gifting option, or add a donation widget through Evite Donations, powered by Pledgeling. After you've entered your event details and have adjusted the "Additional Options", click the green "Continue" button to proceed. (You may also preview your invitation as guests will see it, or save it as a draft to come back to later.
