Starfish Wedding Invitations

Starfish are a lovely ocean symbol and a great theme to carry throughout your beach wedding. From place card holders to bottle opener favors to personalized wine glasses and beyond, you can’t go wrong incorporating the starfish shape into your wedding design.

The starfish wedding invitations featured below are one of several stationery suites we have created to feature this charming ocean creature, also known as a sea star. The romantic, two starfish design is subtle and elegant. It can be used to easily customize your beach wedding invitations, menu cards, personalized fans, address labels, thank you cards and more.

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.

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.

Casual Beach Wedding Inspiration

Beach weddings run the gamut from casual to formal, as most venues can easily be dressed up or down to suit a couple’s style and vision. Glass bottles and jars, pretty flowers, shell-themed decor and a little imagination are all you need to create a relaxed beach wedding that feels unique. It’s the details that make all the difference, like the breezy seagull invitations and whimsical ocean-themed cookies included in our latest inspiration board below.

Beach Scene Wedding Inspiration

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.
