Selecting your wedding stationery is an exciting time because it means you've set a date and have your venue booked; now it's time to invite those guests! First things first, you'll want to choose a style that fits YOU and the vision for your Big Day. Next, layer on the luxe. It's the little details that count, which is why we love the custom designs from The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly so much. Keep reading for our tips on how to make your invitations shine for your dream wedding!

Get Glam with Foil.

There's no better way to make your wedding stationery shine than with real foil layered on your personalized design. The Wedding Shop has a wide variety of styles that pair beautifully with foil in gold, rose gold and silver to match your custom selected colors across all pieces—from your invitations to the RSVP to enclosure cards—taking your entire suite to the next level. You can also use the custom color palette on select designs to take your personalization even further, allowing you to match your stationery with your wedding colors.

The Ultramodern Brushstrokes design (shown here) is one of our favorites with foil layered atop pretty watercolor and hand-lettered names to boot.

Save Time, In Style.

The Wedding Shop's custom address labels and addressing service for both recipient and return address are both stylish and time saving—the best. perk. ever. when you have a million other wedding to dos. Take it from this veteran Bride, it's a life saver. Simply select your design, customize, pop in your address list and when your envelopes arrive, they're already done. No addressing marathons, hand cramps or cringing when you mess up. All you need to do is stuff those pretty envelopes and send away!

Creating a Beautiful Experience.

The Wedding Shop's cohesive designs allow you to create a beautiful experience for your guests. The Opulent Lines design (shown here) looks absolutely stunning with real foil and it boasts the loveliest envelope liners—another way to crank up the volume on your invitation suite. Incorporate a matching RSVP and an enclosure card so your guests are equipped with all of the necessary info. Not only will your guests notice these little details, but they'll make for a pretty suite for your photographer to style and capture, too.

Fancy Up Your Photos

Foil isn't the only way to make those invites glow. Attention-grabbing glitter options are available, too and look stunning layered on engagement photos. For example, the Sparkling Moment design (shown below) beautifully frames your photo with a halo of glitter and will delight your guests as they open the envelope, without a mess!
