Ideas for Perfect Beach Wedding Invitations

Another great beach wedding idea is to make your own really cool beach wedding invitations.

Your wedding invitations are really important because it’s the first impression, it sets the scene for your beach wedding and sets the scene for your big day.

So you want to get it off on the right foot, get people into the right mood. And a great way to do that is with the right beach wedding invitation.

A couple of great examples; if you’re crafty, you could literally make your own wedding invitations. Just get a bit of card, maybe simulate sand with some texture, or just get some glue and some nice fine white sand and stick it on there. Then stick on a few sea shells for a border and you’ve got a fantastic, beach theme wedding invitation.

You don’t need to do a lot, you just need a feeling of the sea. It gives that special effect to it.

Another idea you could do, you could make a postcard of either your wedding destination, or your ideal wedding destination if you’re not going to make it there.

Print out a nice glossy photo of a beach paradise, perhaps if you’re really lucky and you’re near the beach already, you could go down to the beach and write out your names or your initials in the sand. Or perhaps ‘You’re Invited’, in the sand. An excellent example of this can be found at Sandwriting by the sea, who’ll write your message in the sand for you. This will again give you the right feel as a postcard, and when you give it to your guests, they’ll know exactly what’s coming up for your day!

Or another great idea, if you’re feeling really creative, is to have a message in a bottle invitation. Write the invitation on some aged looking paper, (see tips on making aged paper), roll it up, and stick it in little bottles for each of your guests. Obviously this could end up being quite an expensive option, so perhaps this is good if you’re only having a small ceremony.

This is also a great idea for beach wedding placeholders for the actual wedding.

Another great idea related to the postcard idea, is to make your RSVP slips like a postcard back to you. This makes it much easier so that when it comes time to count all the RSVP’s, you won’t be sitting there opening envelopes all the time, and it makes it easier for the guests to back to you, which makes it more likely they will. It’s just better for everyone all round!

So beach wedding invitations are a fantastic way to kick start the mood of your wedding before it’s even started. It’s certainly one of the best beach wedding ideas!
