Wedding planning: you love it or you…tolerate it — preferably with a glass of rosé in hand. With every cake tasting (YAY) there’s another decision you have to make (boo). We’ve been there, and that’s why were determined to help you get more YAYs than boos out of wedding planning. Above all, it’s always best to include your partner — whether you make special date nights all about wedding planning OR you make date nights to take a breather from wedding planning! Because each step in the process is another step toward saying, “I do,” and that’s pretty darn exciting.
One of those first steps just happens to involve two of our favorite things: design and mail! Yep, it’s the wedding invitations. We’ve been personalizing a few of our favorite invitation suites via The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly and we gotta say, it’s literally the one-stop shop you need. Start with custom save-the-dates, all the way on through photo albums, gifts, and décor. If you want to create your own Pinterest-worthy wedding stationery but wouldn’t mind a few practical (and affordable) tools to help you out, The Wedding Shop is basically your dream come true.
Best of all, there are a range of styles and custom options to make your invitation suite stand out. We had fun designing a few of our own and can’t wait to show you just how beautiful the finished product turned out — let’s have a look!
Classic and Refined
The watercolor florals, the gold foil details…we simply adore Diamond Blossoms. We designed a save the date (that photo on our save the date is by Lilly Red Creative – this is a great chance to show off your engagement photos!), invitation, RSVP card, details enclosures and return and recipient envelope addresses…so long, hand cramps! All the addressing can be done right there while you’re creating your invites. Customize the envelope to match your wedding stationery so that all you have to do is stuff the envelopes and send. (And now, how about that date night??)
Bright, Bold and Fun
If you’re dreaming of a wedding filled with pops of color, unexpected details, and a casual atmosphere, Brushed Petals is where it’s at. LOVE the bold florals on this wedding invitation,response card and enclosure card!
Modern and Unique
Opulent Lines is making all of our agate dreams come true! Real foil-stamping might generally add a pretty penny to the final price, but The Wedding Shop has a variety of gorgeous ‘featured’ foil-stamped stationery that is totally affordable like this wedding invitation, response card and address label. Elevate the design, not the budget.
Chic and Contemporary
One of our favorite parts of the Ultramodern Brushstrokes design is the color however— should you need to change any aspect, The Wedding Shop has a Custom Color Palette tool which gives you the ability to customize your stationery perfectly to your wedding colors! (But hey, you can’t go wrong with blush, black, and gold, right?!). The Ultramodern Brushstrokes suite contains: invitation, RSVP card, enclosure card and address label – as well as a matching stamp!
You guys…may we present: Coastal Hues. We’re kind of drawn to watercolor inspiration (can you tell?), so we’re all about this design on this wedding invitation, response card and enclosure card. Coral motifs mixed with herringbone patterns? ALL. IN.
The best part about wedding stationery from The Wedding Shop is, of course, the quality. Do yourself a favor and order a free sample kit, shipped to you at no cost! You’ll be able to touch, feel, and witness first-hand the beauty of the designs, paper, and print techniques. Then head over to The Wedding Shop and call it a YAY! Rosé optional ;)
