"Story time. I've had a shutterfly account for a couple years now. And during those years, I've moved a couple times as well. So I have a few addresses on account. I just recently ordered my most important thing from Shutterfly (so far) - my save the dates for my wedding! Everything seemed great, and I ordered them, excited to recieve them. The day of delivery came so I checked my package tracking info and I made a grim discovery... My Save the Dates got sent to my OLD address! I thought I had sent them to my current address, but no. I totally missed it. So I started freaking out. I called the Shutterfly Customer Service line and talked to the sweetest lady with the thickest southern accent I had ever heard. She was super nice and understanding, seeing to how important these were to me. She offered to send me a new shipment of my order free of charge, AND she even upgraded my shipping to faster shipping, as free of charge, because she understood how important these were to me. I received them a week later. I am SO grateful for her hospitality and willingness to help me. I've used Shutterfly before and never had a problem and everything has always been great but this was the first time I had to call customer service, and I had a great experience. Thank you so much Shutterfly!!"
"My save the dates came out wonderfully and were received so quickly! It was amazing!"
"I obviously used this format for our wedding save the dates. I was concerned the pictures were going to turn out blurry because the preview made it kind of look that but they turned out perfect and we couldn't be happier! We've received many compliments on how they turned out!"
"They look amazing and very neat. I couldn't ask for a better card"
"My save the dates came out absolutely gorgeous and I can't rave more about how amazing they are."
There are many factors that go into weddings. While the celebration may officially take place on a single night, in reality, you and your close friends and family can start celebrating long before the ceremony. The engagement party, bridal shower, and bachelor or bachelorette party are all a big part of your path to the altar. You can start your wedding celebrations in the best way possible by creating custom purple save the date cards and other stationery that helps get your wedding guests in the right mindset.
Focus on Stationery
When it comes to your invitations, announcements or save the dates, the stationery is important. When you design a card on Shutterfly, you get to choose specific design elements, use a designer you love and pick a color scheme that works with your wedding.
What customizable design elements does Shutterfly offer? You can choose to use special paper, such as photo paper, signature cardstock or pearl shimmer cardstock. The card size can also play a big role in how many pictures you can have on your card. You may be able to find save the dates as big as 6 by 8 or as small as 4 by 5.
Have you found a designer you love? You can get your wedding invitations, RSVP cards, enclosure cards, bridal shower invitations and any other stationery you may need from the same designer. Choose from designers such as the following:
Do you already have your wedding colors picked out? Make sure your save the dates complement the rest of the décor. Purple save the date cards, for example, may look good with a purple-themed fall wedding.
Create Personalized Gifts
No matter what part of the celebration you are on, you may want to give your guests and wedding party members special gifts to commemorate the occasion. You could get guests engraved cups, decorated candles or wedding-themed playing cards. Those in your wedding party may appreciate a flask, picture frame or wine bag.
