"My wedding invitations were perfect! Kept getting so many compliments on them and definitely loved the material and colors! Just what I had imagined! What you design is what you get!"
"Great quality - I used the same photo on the front and the back and really liked how that came out."
"Pretty much everything except the background can be customized on this and it's great! I was able to do it in my wedding colors and pick fonts and sizes that I like. It was quite a bit larger than I expected but great material!"
"I use the wedding invitation template that allows for a photo upload only-no pre-determined text for creating my framed 5x7 photos. I like the thicker paper on the 5x7 invitation vs. the weight of a 5x7 photo."
"These turned out really pretty and in great quality! Very quick delivery also! Shutterfly never disappoints."
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.
