"I've gotten so many compliments on my invitations! I chose the blue with gold, and they came out beautifully. The default gold text is light, but still legible. I would go back and change the colors to match the main color like a darker blue. Also, just playing around with the different settings to see what you like is the best way to get what you want. I like how there was enough space to write whatever I'd like. I made the cursive a little bigger and darker, and came out wonderful. I would repurchase, but just customize some more. Beautiful invitations!!"
"I ordered for my daughters' wedding in December. I got them quickly and beautifully done. I ended up buying another set with matching enclosure cards for the reception. My daughter and I are very pleased with the quality and fast shipping."
"This product turned out beautiful for my wedding invitations. I would recommend them and Shutterfly to anyone planning a wedding or needing cards."
"These were for my wedding! When i got them i cried because they were exactly how they were online. So beautiful and the details were amazing! I could not be more happy with them! This experience was my first time using shutterfly and i am amazed. I even ordered more products from them! How could you not?!"
"I love how customizable these invitations are. Once ordered, they arrived quickly and perfect. Colors are just as the sample shows. Check this off the wedding list!"
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.
