"It was a very nice bridal shower invitation"
"The blurred edge helped cover up the fact that the top of someone's hair was missing from the frame!"
"THEY DELIVER A PERFECT MESSAGE FOR THE RECIPIENT. ALWAYS IMPRESSED. I HAVE MADE THESE OVER THE YEARS AND THEY ARE ALWAYS APPRECIATED. NICE QUALITY PAPER."
"I make these cards to send monthly to the elderly/homebound/college/military folks that are listed in our church's weekly publication. I want to share Jesus' love for us all by sending these "cards of joy" and to let people know that I'm thinking of and praying for them and their struggles in life. Thank you for helping me to show His Love."
"The card stock was high quality. They arrived promptly. Most impressive of all, the staff was extremely helpful by phone as I made an adjustment to my order. I am very pleased."
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.
No matter which of these options you choose, you still will need invitations for the guests. Fortunately, all of our classic bridal shower invitations are fully customizable, so you can tailor the message to convey just the type of event you have planned.
