"Shutterfly cards are my favorite!"
"Very happy with number of pictures and amount of text I was able to put on the card"
"i LIKE HOW YOU CAN PERSONALIZE THESE CARDS ."
"The black bordered style card works especially well when the picture is a silhouette shot. Mine was a tree at sunset."
"I make a new card every year to give out to my Siblings and close friends for THIER birthdays. Every year they are so excited to see what the "new card" is going to show them. Having a personal Birthday card to give out is so much fore personal than buying one at a store. Love this tradition. Quality of printing is great."
If you are thinking that black is an unusual choice for bridal shower invitations, think again. The classic color provides the perfect backdrop for all sorts of color combinations and evokes an elegant feel that many brides embrace. At Shutterfly, we love the classic look of black and white together, but we also have created options that include metallics, pastels and other combos.
You can set the tone for the party by designing affordable bridal shower invitations that perfectly match the personality of the bride. And just because the background hue is stark doesn’t mean the whole invitation has to be that way. There are endless design directions you might go.
Black as a color just cries out to be embellished with a complementary hue. Depending on the wedding color scheme or just the whim of the shower host, black can be paired with other shades to create all kinds of elegant looks. Check out these options:
In the past, bridal showers have been all about celebrating the upcoming wedding with the bride. Attendees were all female, and the bridesmaids did all the planning and hosting. Recently, though, the trend has been for the groom to attend the celebration as well, and some of the guests are men. In fact, many couples choose to host their own bridal shower. They present the event as more of a party, some with backyard barbecues and others with pool parties.
