Unusual beach wedding color palettes are the inspiration for our latest mood board. We love the way purple and teal really pop when combined with the more neutral elements of a beach wedding, like sand, shells and starfish. Just looking at this inspiration board makes us want to celebrate!

Beach Wedding Favors

Seashells, sea horses, coral, sand dollars, starfish, palm trees, anchors, tropical flowers – there are so many wonderful images to play with when you are designing your dream beach wedding. Whatever images you choose, include them in big and small ways throughout your wedding design. Beach themed wedding favors, including wine bottle stoppers and openers make beloved keepsakes. Beach coasters are another great choice due to their nearly universal appeal across the wedding guest spectrum, from friends to co-workers to family members. Though not pictured here, nautical wedding favors and starfish wedding favors are very appealing and popular. Whatever beach-related symbols or themes you choose, just keep in mind that when it comes to wedding design, it’s all in the details!

Nautical Beach Wedding Inspiration

This nautical beach wedding has glamour and style to spare! Sailor-themed bridesmaids dresses look sharp with red bouquets tied with striped ribbon. The groom and his men are the definition of handsome in navy anchor-patterned ties and suspenders. Using classic colors makes it possible to go big with the details, like an overgrown floral centerpiece and blinged-out candle holders like the sparkly anchor-themed ones pictured below.

Beach Wedding Enclosure Cards: Etiquette, Wording & Sizing

From reception location and dress code to travel information and additional event details, wedding enclosure cards convey important information to your guests, while maintaining an uncluttered look for your invitations. Beach Front Occasions offers three sizes, all with 100% customize-able wording.

Our mini card is 2″ x 3.5″ like a standard business card and is most often used for:

RSVP Instructions: Wedding invitations often include a reply card with a self-addressed stamped envelope. But, with more and more wedding information being housed on personalized websites, many clients opt to include an enclosure card with instructions to RSVP on a website or to an email address.

Gift Registry: According to Martha Stewart, it is never OK to include your gift registry information with your invitations. Etiquette rules have loosened up around this issue. While it might be not be appropriate information for the invitation itself, many people include a small enclosure card with the registry information. Another option is to include it on your wedding website only. Donation information in lieu of gifts would also be appropriate to include on a separate card.

Website: Including your wedding website on your invitation is perfectly acceptable, etiquette-wise. If your invitations are getting too cluttered, a small enclosure card is good choice.

Attire: If the wedding dress code is easily conveyed in a few words (i.e. “Black Tie”) it is fine to include it on the invitation itself. For attire suggestions that are more involved (i.e., “Wear attire for a cool summer evening” or “Reception takes place on sand, please avoid heels”) it is best to include a separate card.

The next size up we offer is 3.5″ x 5″ and is most often used for:

Reception Information: If your wedding reception is being hosted at a different location than the ceremony, proper etiquette says to include this information on a separate card.

Directions: If you are including a card with directions to the wedding site, the venue address should only appear here and not on the invitation as well.

Hotel & Travel Information: For your out of town guests, or for a destination wedding, you might want to include a card with information about area hotels. Streamline the wording by referring guests to your website for more information.

Additional Events: If there are additional events planned, such as a rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch, a medium-sized enclosure card should be included as a separate invitation. It is especially important to include it separately if not all guests are invited.

Finally, our largest enclosure card size is 4.25″ x 5″ and is most often used for directions, hotel and travel information.

All of our enclosure cards are beautifully decorated with the designs from our beach wedding invitations to maintain a unified and elegantly coordinated look.

Nautical Wedding Favors

Anchors away, anchored in love, dropping anchor together – whatever the metaphor, we love a nautical theme for a beach wedding! From bottle openers and treat bags to bookmarks and candle holders, we can’t get enough nautical wedding favors emblazoned with adorable anchors. Go glamorous with sparkly candle holders or more rustic with muslin drawstring bags. Either way, your guests will love taking home a little maritime momento!

Pink Seashell & Coral Beach Wedding Inspiration

Soft, warm coastal light is the inspiration for this seashell and coral beach wedding board. With a shade as girly as pink, bridesmaid dresses in a simple shape look chic. Color can unify beach-themed details – like shells, starfish and coral. Silver and chrome accents, like the lantern centerpieces and “love” bottle opener favors pictured below, reflect light and add shimmer to match the glow of the happy couple.
