Brown combined with neutrals is as modern a color palette for a beach wedding as you are likely to find. It feels unfussy and natural like a cluster of seashells lying in the sand. It’s easy to unify the look of your wedding using this color combination. Bridesmaid dresses of different lengths and styles look coordinated in varying neutral shades. A rustic table decorated with sand-colored objects – like burlap, starfish and seashells – is an elegant homage to the simple beauty of the seashore.
Ahoy matey! Anchor-themed beach wedding invitations are sure to get your guests in a maritime mood. Elegant, yet whimsical, the designs will set imaginations sailing as your friends and family prepare to launch you and your spouse-to-be into wedded life. These nautical wedding invitations will also set the tone for the celebration of a marriage destined for adventure.
Personalizing Your Beach Wedding Invitations
The wedding invitations below can be customized to suit your taste and style. Choosing to incorporate layering cards, envelope liners or pocket folders can really dress up the look of this stationery. The invitation designs are also strong enough to stand on their own without much adornment. Whichever look you choose, the same design can be used for place cards, table signs and favor tags to personalize nautical wedding favors and other elements of your wedding decor.
Palm trees swaying in the breeze. White sand beneath your feet. Waves crashing on the shore. String lights shining brightly against a dark sky.
This idyllic beach scene is the inspiration behind our latest mood board. At this wedding, the beauty of the beach is the central decor. A palm tree curls forward to make a ceremony arch. The bride’s yellow flowers look just picked. The cocktails are blue like the ocean. Palm fronds knit together to become a table runner. The glow from the lights turns everything dreamy. Your love is there. Your family is there. Your friends are there. The perfect day.

There are so many choices to make when planning your beach wedding. Among them is how you would like to let your guests know where to sit at the reception. Below are a few options:
Use Escort Cards: Escort cards are usually arranged – in alphabetical order – at the reception entrance with the guest’s name and table number. These are used to “escort” the guest to his or her table. Flat cards laid out on a table – with or without an envelope – is one display option, as pictured below in one of our most popular designs: Two Starfish Place Cards.
On our site, escort cards are entirely customize-able. One option is to write the guest’s name on the outside of the envelope. In that case, the assigned table number is usually written on the card inside. Cards laid out without an envelope often include both the guest’s name and the table number. Flat cards can also be displayed in beach place card holders.
Tent cards are another popular way to go (see photo below). The wording on escort cards can be changed to suit your style. You can have a line printed on the cards where guests’ names and table numbers can be written in. You also have the option to include an “M” at the beginning of the name line for guests to finish – filling in Ms., Mrs., Mr. or Mr. & Mrs. Some people prefer to leave out the “M.”
les are getting creative with how they are displaying escort cards at their wedding. Instead of lining them up on a table, they pin the cards onto a clothesline or attach them to an object, like a piece of fruit or to wedding favors, like these white starfish. The only limit is your imagination.
Use Place cards: Place cards usually include guests’ names and are placed at the table itself, at a specific table setting. Place cards are most often used when there are assigned seats – not just assigned tables. Many couples opt for tent cards or use place card holders like the Pewter Sea Shell Place Card Holders pictured below.
Escort cards are also sometimes used as place cards when guests place them at a specific place setting to reserve a particular seat at their assigned table. Our beach-themed place cards are also customize-able, allowing you to choose whether you would like to have a name line printed or an “M” included.
These personalized fans for a beach wedding are hard workers! They do triple-duty as fans, wedding favors and thank you messages. Emblazoned with adorable beach-themed designs, they can be customized with any message. Adorn these fans with festive ribbon and place one on each guest’s chair or place setting. Or, arrange them on a table for your guests to pick up as they arrive. These same designs are also available as personalized wedding program fans, a fun way to keep your guests informed of event details while helping them stay cool in the sun!
Visions of seashells dancing in our heads inspired our latest beach wedding mood board. Muted pastel green, lavender and pink promise a wedding that feels like a piece of coastal heaven. A light seafoam green is a dreamy color for bridesmaid dresses. Lavender and pink accents in the floral design and as part of a tablescape add a touch of subtle femininity.
