"Really happy with the quality and customer service. Excited to put my invitations together and send them out soon to my guests."
"I customized the colors of this invitation and it came out BETTER than I anticipated. It's a wonderful thick invitation and all the matching products make the selection EASY. I truly love how these invitations came out for our theme Enchanted Forest, they're straight out of Disney movie."
"Shutterfly cards turn out beautiful. I create a LOT of them and can honestly say I have never been disappointed in the outcome. My latest cards were the flat type, but the folded ones come out equally beautiful. I usually choose the pearl finish. I love the way it gives a dreamy look. But if you want a sharper look, then choose the alternate option. The cards are like mini pieces of personalized artwork and I am always pleased to send them to my friends and family. In my opinion, they show more thought and are more special because they have been lovingly created."
"These came out even better than I could have imagined. They are perfect! Instead of putting our picture on the back we put our initials and an & in place of where the picture would have been and it looks great. Could not be happier!"
"I use Shutterfly all of the time, prints, calendars, photo books and invitations. I have never been disappointed."
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.
