"This item was very useful as I did not want an invitation or a save the date. So the wording on this card worked perfect."
"It's a wedding invite, it's pretty"
"This invitation matches our wedding venue and was perfectly priced! Love it."
"Couldn't have been happier I went with the gold over the pinky/rose gold one & went with the pearl shimmer finish! Absolutely stunning and elegant!!"
"I used this for my wedding invitations and it came out great! The paper has a pearly gloss and the card stock used was of good weight and quality. I chose the gold envelope and it made it look so elegant. I am very happy with my choices! I received a lot of compliments and a lot of my friends are sure to check out Shutterfly from now on!"
Your wedding day will probably be one of the most important days of your life, but the act of planning the wedding is a lot of work. Luckily, you and your spouse-to-be can work together to choose a theme and plan a ceremony and reception you will both love.
Before deciding on a wedding theme, decide on your venue. Not all themes will work with every venue. If you decide to get married near an old barn, a big city theme probably won’t fit well. On the other hand, cowboy boots and hats would look out of place if you decide to have your ceremony at a fancy event center.
If you decide you want to incorporate your wedding theme into your attire, be sure to think about your fashion sense first. A princess-themed ceremony sounds elegant, but if you don’t like to feel stuffed into a poufy dress for hours on end, you probably won’t enjoy yourself very much.
How did you and your partner meet? What do you both love? What colors do you both enjoy? Think about the things you have in common and find ways to incorporate it into your décor, attire, or even your food. If you can’t agree on a theme, maybe you can find a way to use both. Some couples are mixing superheroes with elegance by having the men wear superhero shirts under their tuxes or creating cakes that are half superhero and half elegant white fondant. The possibilities are endless.
You can even incorporate your theme into your wedding invitations. Shutterfly sells fully customizable foil wedding invitations that allow you to choose colors, fonts, wording and pictures. Use an engagement picture of you both dressed in themed attire, choose colors that match your décor or find another unique way to display your theme. If you're unsure of when to take your engagement photos, they should be taken 1-2 months of getting engaged.
