“Two Fish in Love” Beach Wedding Inspiration

Declare “Out of all the fish in the sea, you’re the one for me!” with a playful and romantic fish-themed beach wedding. Carry the “two fish in love” theme on your invitations and in little decorative details, like a cake topper and adorable fish place card holders. Aqua paper lanterns, a wave-patterned cake, your best gals dressed up in flattering shades of blue – these can all complement the fish motif, while accenting the gorgeous natural color palette of the beach.

Art Deco Beach Wedding Colors: Teal, Blue, Orange & Yellow

This beach wedding color palette is inspired by the Art Deco architecture of Florida’s South Beach. The rich colors and intricate patterns of this 1930s visual art style is a great match for a beach wedding with a vintage feel. Incorporate teal and blue into your bridesmaids dresses and table settings, while making oranges and yellows the key colors of your floral design. Tall, structural table centerpieces echoing the height and shape of palm trees coordinate well with this Gatsby-esque look. Our Deco Palm Trees Wedding Invitations, pictured below, invite your guests to a celebration full of style and glamour!

Personalize Your Beach Wedding with Envelope Seals

One simple way to personalize your wedding and stay within budget is to use envelope seals to label a variety of your items – from invitations to favors to thank you cards – with your own personal “branding.”  Creating a wedding logo or monogram not only helps to coordinate the look of your event, it is also a great way to add your own style touches to your wedding’s smallest details.

Printed on glossy white paper, our round Pineapple Envelope Seals, pictured below, measure 1.5 inches and are the perfect size for invitations and thank you cards. These seals can also be used to customize and label favor boxes and bags, whether glass containers, kraft paper bags or colorful boxes.

Chevron & Palm Tree Beach Wedding Inspiration

A chevron pattern is a stylish design choice for a beach or nautical wedding. We added a tropical twist in our chevron & palm tree beach wedding mood board below. Use a chevron pattern on your invitations and smaller decor elements, like bouquet ribbons and drink straws.  Balance the tropical feel of palm tree-shaped centerpieces and favor boxes by including more traditional choices for your flowers and bridesmaids dresses. Tropical drinks using lime and pineapple would coordinate well with these colors while offering your guests a delicious way to beat the heat!

3 Ways to Dress Up Your Wedding Invitations

We offer many options for dressing up our beach wedding invitations from adding belly bands, ribbons and envelope seals, to incorporating layering and pocket folders.  Below we present just three ways you could easily bring your own personal style to your wedding stationery.

Using our Nautical Themed Anchor Wedding Invitations design, this first example incorporates layering with a pocket envelope to add structure. This is a very practical option as it easily holds your reply cards and any other enclosure cards (i.e., reception details, hotel information, registry or wedding websites, etc.) all in one neat package.  Also shown is the outside of the invitation envelope decorated with a belly band and ribbon and sealed with a coordinating envelope seal.

Adding return address labels and personalized mailing labels provide additional opportunities to customize the look.

Coral Beach Wedding Inspiration Board

We love coral for a beach wedding – both the animal and the color. That’s right: animal!  The fact that coral resembles a plant or a type of rock, but is actually alive only adds to it’s mystery and magic.

Use the color for flower girl dresses and in your beach wedding floral design. It pairs beautifully with white, light pink and many blues, especially aqua. Incorporate the shape of coral in your   table centerpieces, place card holders and even jewelry to add a bit of underwater splendor to your special day.

Beach Wedding Colors: Aqua, Baby Blue & Orange

This color palette is inspired by one of life’s simple pleasures: a sunrise.  As full of promise as a couple in love, a sunrise reminds us of new beginnings. As part of your beach wedding decor, these colors will beautifully highlight your surroundings.  Aqua and baby blue are a lovely choice for beach wedding invitations and bridesmaids dresses.  A splash of orange in the bridal bouquets and throughout the floral design adds a bit of sunshine without being too over-powering.

This color combination is a great match for our Seagulls Beach Wedding Invitations.  Can’t you just hear the sound of the gulls mixed with the gentle lapping of the waves?
