Available in unique shapes and personalized with fun expressions such as: Sandy Feet & Salty Kisses, our new beach themed coasters make great favors for beach and nautical events. You can personalize these cork coasters by adding two lines of text such as your names and event date. Made of natural cork, select from palm leaf shaped coasters, flip flop coasters, pineapple coasters or anchor coasters to coordinate with the theme of your event. With very low minimum requirements for customization, these coasters make great favors for intimate weddings and bridal showers as well as larger events.
The pineapple, a symbol of welcome, friendship and hospitality makes a beautiful theme for Hawaiian or beach weddings. In addition to our Pineapple Wedding Invitations, we just added 2 new beach barware favors featuring the pineapple in an elegant gold color. Matching these favors, we also have pineapple place card holders and a pineapple shaped favor box.
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.
Vintage and beach go together like lace and burlap. Each pretty on their own, once combined the romantic effect is intoxicating!
The beach, so fresh and natural, has a timelessness that makes it a perfect backdrop for details inspired by another era. Delicate glass table decorations bring a light quality to earthier elements, like rustic flowers or greenery. Choosing a symbol like pineapple marries the tropical and the vintage and can be used as a logo that uniquely, but subtly, brands your wedding. Whether stamped onto favor bags, printed onto invitations or echoed in the groom’s boutonniere, the pineapple shape is a modern twist on a vintage classic!

You may not think of yourself as a DIY genius. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t create awesome DIY favors for a wedding or other party.
Candied pineapple is an impressive – and easy! – DIY favor idea. A fruit that is practically synonymous with paradise, pineapple is an especially good match for a beach event. Having a tropical-themed bridal shower or party? Or a beach wedding in a tropical location like Hawaii? Start with a recipe like this one from Martha Stewart. You can even use canned pineapple if fresh is out of season or unavailable.
Personalized treat bags (pictured below) are simple to create. The designs coordinate with our beach wedding invitations but can easily be adapted for a beach bridal shower or beach baby shower. The one below uses our Pineapple Wedding Invitations design – a fun way to continue the tropical theme.
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.
Fill clear glass jars with brightly-colored candies and coordinate the label color with your wedding palette. The envelope seals pictured below are a match for our Pineapple Beach Wedding Invitations – an adorable way to bring a little tropical charm to your special day!
We love the tropical feel of pineapple wedding decor. Whether you are having a beach wedding in Hawaii, California or Rhode Island, infusing your wedding with touches of pineapple adds a bit of paradise to your special day!
It’s a fruit that makes a pretty bold statement, so our advice is to keep it simple. Carry your pineapple theme by choosing cheery yellow bridesmaid dresses. Pineapple cocktails and other refreshments are always a hit. Of course, it’s hard to beat the natural beauty of a pineapple as a centerpiece or as part of your table settings.
