"So happy with how our wedding invitations look. My fiance was worried the writing may be hard to read, because the background color is so dark, but that is not the case at all. Excellent quality!"
"Just a very nice way to celebrate our love! Beautiful invitation!"
"I liked this invite the best because I could edit and change the back of the invite to include more information. Some of the other templates didn't allow me to change/add info and only showed our initials which I was not a fan of. This one let me do essentially exactly what I wanted!"
"I absolutely love love this site!!! I ordered my save the dates and they were perfect!!! I ordered my wedding invitations and there was an error and before I flipped out I called them and they replaced them within 5 days without any problems. Thank you for being so awesome!!!"
"The product is shipped in a very timely manner and the price is good!! I am always satisfied with shutterfly."
A wedding of simple elegance is the perfect way to say “I do” in a classic manner. With a little forethought and attention to detail, you can create a stunningly elegant affair that will leave your guests in awe.
Set the tone for the event with classic white wedding invitations, which offer details to the event with a mix of strong fonts and flowing scripts. Add a bit of a personal touch by creating an invitation with a text overlay atop your favorite image of the two of you in black and white. This offers an intimate feel while maintaining elegant simplicity.
You cannot go wrong with black and white. While black was once considered taboo at a wedding, it has become a mainstay in modern times. Choose tailored black dresses for the bridesmaids to pair with a classic tux for the groomsmen. A bouquet -- or a single stem -- of simple white flowers such roses or lilies stands out nicely against the dress as the ladies walk down the aisle. For the bride, consider red roses to add a lovely splash of color without going overboard. Opt for a classic upswept ‘do or sleek coif to top off the look.
If you opt not to have the traditional processional and recessional scores played for the ceremony, choose a favorite classical piece instead. For the meal, use place settings atop a linen cloth, complete with linen napkins. If possible, have the meal served to guests to create a fine dining ambiance, with light music playing in the background. Create an elegant centerpiece with a tall, slender crystal vase housing a long stemmed flower. At the event’s end, offer favors that include of a piece (or small box) of gourmet chocolate.
Keep your vision streamlined from your white wedding thank you cards to your classic ‘do for the ultimate event oozing in simple elegance.
