"I was extremely happy when I received our wedding invitations. This invitations were perfectly suited for our Vineyard wedding theme! They arrived quickly look like they appear online however much more beautiful in person. We were pleased with the quality of the invitations. I would definitely recommend these to anyone! I have received many compliments on these invitations. Thank you!"
"Ordered my wedding invitations and they came out beautiful! Just like any thing you can get from Shutterfly. I've been ordering from them for over a decade now and their work just amazes me. I had tried other invitation websites but this one was the easiest. Simply type in the information and it pops right onto the sample photo of the invitation. No guessing done here. Preview shows how it will look. Loved how you can just simply save your work and go back to it another day. The only downfall I had is with the packaging of everything my return labels got wrinkled and bent up since they were packaged with my RSVP cards. Other than that I am highly pleased I had choose Shutterfly for my wedding invitations!"
"Fast and easy. Quality is ok."
"Love the design, easy to customize, invite has a sturdy thickness to it, not flimsy at all. I would give 5 stars if I was able to customize the back of the invite, would be nice to be able to stick a picture or be able to write something."
"Our wedding invitations turned out perfect. They arrived so fast. I'm really glad we picked these!"
Purple is a popular choice for a wedding theme, and it’s easy to see why. The deep, luxurious color evokes passion and health. Its exuberance evokes a feeling of family and celebration, channeling wine, grapes and the finer things in life. Purple wedding invitations are the perfect complement to your purple-themed wedding. There are so many different hues of purple that you can find the right one to match the shade—or shades—you’ll use in your ceremony and reception. Shutterfly has an excellent selection of cards that you can personalize to perfection.
Flower choices for a purple-themed wedding can be fun. Examples are hydrangeas, tulips, sweet pea, king lisianthus, peonies, roses and calla lilies, or mix and match for the perfect combination. Once you decide which flowers you prefer, you’ll want to consider cost. Flowers generally make up about 10 percent of the overall wedding budget. Most ceremonies have flowers for the wedding party (bouquets for ladies and boutonnieres for the groomsman and ring bearer).
Flowers are also used to decorate the ceremony and reception spaces. The flower girl generally has loose petals in a basket, and sometimes the ushers and parents to wear boutonnieres as well, so as to distinguish them from the rest of the guests. Whether you purchase real or fake flowers will depend on the type you decide and how much you’re willing to spend. Silk flowers can often cost more than real ones, but you also don’t have to worry about them fading. You can also have a combination of real and fake flowers.
In addition to the invitations themselves, you will probably want to purchase purple address labels. This will help tie your theme together and will create a polished overall look. Creating a wedding guest list and sending out wedding announcements is a fun part of the wedding planning process. Keep an extra wedding invitation to place with other special memorabilia from this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
