Choose a Design that Speaks to You.
I don’t think anyone wishes for a cookie-cutter wedding, or cookie-cutter wedding stationery for that matter. So, first things first, pick a design you love! Shutterfly‘s array of design options can be customized the way YOU want, to bring your vision to life. Whether you’re having an intimate backyard affair or an elegant seaside affair, the options are endless.
Utilize Shutterfly’s Custom Color Palette tool on specific designs (indicated by the color wheel on site) to customize your stationery further and match the hues you’ve selected for your Big Day.

Personalize with Photos
My husband and I loved utilizing our engagement photos for our save-the-dates. It’s such a fun way to personalize and share those memories with friends and family before the wedding! Shutterfly’s Wedding Save-The-Dates also have a coordinating, customizable back of card design, at no extra charge. Don’t you love it when the bonus touches are free?

Get Fancy with Foil
The easiest way to take your wedding stationery to the next level? Layer on the foil, my friends! Sure, faux foil can look lovely, but real foil is très chic and brings an elegant touch to your stationery.
