"Got tons of compliments on our invitations. They were delivered fast, too!"
"I love ordering from Shutterfly. I always get quality items when I order."
"These turned out so beautiful. The card itself feels amazing, and the overall appearance is just stunning."
"Shutterfly went about and beyond when I made a mistake on my order! The invite also looked exactly as displayed when it arrived. I am a stickler for Customer Service and that alone will keep me coming back to Shutterfly time and time again."
"I love to make cards for family and friends. To bring back special memories from old photos lets them know you haven't forgotten those fun times. Shutterfly has helped bring joy to many we hold dear."
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.
