    everything is vinyl on the house so I don't believe zip ties will work.

    When I put pixels around our windows, I drilled holes into J-Channel from Home Depot. Then I use two x 1" pieces of velcro and stick the J-Channel to the brick! This stuff is great and maybe you can figure out a way to use it.

    I've had good luck with the command strips. I put some up last November and they are still there. The surface must be extremely clean ( should not be a problem with new windows). The only problems I had was when I tried to add a couple late November after the temps had dropped. They hold up in cold weather if applied in warm weather but don't like to stick when you apply them to an ice cold surface.

    I use a PVC Pipe Frame for my windows and have clips (painted to match) mounted on my shutters to hold the frames.

    Are the shutters the only support structure for the whole frame? Do you have any photos you could share? I find J channel 10x easier to drill than 1/2" PVC and I'm stuck in a similar situation where my windows are a white vinyl 1.25" edge (with the siding coming in behind that white edge). I'm really hesitant to drill into that white edge and I've wondered if the shutters can withstand the weight of a PVC frame. The more I think this through, the more I think J channel would work well because the longer side of the J could "rest against" the shutter's side, lay on the top edge, etc. The bay windows have no shutters so that'll complicate things for me for sure.
