The Shine Difference

Built on a foundation of classic design and quality materials, Shine Wedding Invitations was launched in 2008 as a response to the need for elegant and timeless wedding invitations. Our designs are simple, clean, and modern, yet stand the test of time. We respect trends, but we don't rely on them. Our goal is for you to be able to look back at your wedding invitations in 10, 20, or even 30 years and still be thrilled with the design.

Timeless Style

Clean, simple, and elegant design that stands the test of time.

Clean, simple and elegant is our motto. Your invite will look fresh this year, yet still classic 10 years down the line.
Fine Paper

The finest papers available paired with high quality, exquisite printing.

Choose between our signature shimmer and luxe matte cardstocks, both available in white and ivory, with matte stocks also available in breathtaking double thick.
Complete Suites

From start to finish, everything you need for a cohesive look is right here.

Save the dates, menus, programs, place cards, and table numbers ensure a perfectly branded look for your event.

Truly Exclusive

We design in-house, so you'll work with the actual creators of our designs.

Rather than work with a third party, like sites that purchase designs, you'll work directly with our designers.
Real Design

Leave the typographically complex layouts to an actual designer, not online software.

Our unique layouts and fonts require the human touch. We rely on our talented designers, not limiting online software.
Boutique Service

Your day is important, and we believe you deserve only the best treatment.

Our friendly designers are available for questions, advice, and anything else you might need before and during proofing.
