Sand Dollar Wedding
The sand dollar is one of the popular beach shells to collect. White sand dollars make pretty, understated wedding stationery, with two together to represent the couple.
The two images you see here link to the same collection. The sand dollar theme is carried over to RSVP cards and other products a couple may need.

The first two designs come from the Sandpiper Wedding store, and the collections below come from other designers at the Zazzle site.

The collection below is by Invitation Republic. The design combines lace, burlap and sand dollars for a pretty set of wedding stationery.
Two starfish make this cute “starfish couple” engagement party invitation the perfect choice for a beach-loving couple.
The engagement party is given for the couple as soon as possible after the engagement is announced. It can be given by either of the parents or families, or both families can go in together on the celebration plans.
But wait… this is a custom card… the text can be changed by the customer and used for a wedding shower also – see wording example below. What’s the difference between an engagement party and wedding shower? Not much. It’s all in what you make it. Rules are not hard and fast when it comes to celebrating young love. (Or even older love for that matter!)
The Engagement party can be an informal gathering of friends and family who want to congratulate the couple (and see the ring). It can be the first occasion where everyone hears about the wedding plans, if there are any made at that early time. The two families can get to know each other and make plans of their own to celebrate the happy occasion.
This is when the wedding shower, or bridal shower, can be talked about. The bride and groom can let their wishes be known and share a little about their plans for the ceremony.
An engagement party is one of the most exciting parties thrown for the couple before the wedding. It’s a beginning to a new phase of life for the couple. There is magic in the air as two loving families unite behind two people who have been special to them always.
A new main focus of mine for the 2017 wedding season is more beautiful tropical flowers on products. This new orange and pink hibiscus design was first added to a wedding menu template. The floral graphic turned out so well, that I went ahead and made a black and white and transparent image.
Two different Hawaiian flowers were used for this background image. Three flowers together make a pretty divider for the menu. The black and white flowers were added to the back of the men.
One of the hibiscus bags is meant for the “Mothers” of the bride and groom. The other is meant for bridesmaids and other members of the bridal party.
The Bridesmaids deserve some thanks, not only because of all the money they have spent to make your special day perfect, but because they are your best friends.
Whether the wedding will be large and expensive, or casual and simple, a lot goes into the planning. Most wedding traditions simply must apply, and being appreciative to the ones who contributed to your happiness should be high on the planning list.
Not every bride will throw a Bridesmaids’ party, and giving out gifts is fine, but why not have fun with a luncheon, elegant tea party, or night at the local bar?
WHO TO INVITE? Even if the bridal party is not large, friends and family members (women only) can be invited to an event celebrating the bridesmaids.
Also the “bridesmaids” title can include every member of the bridal party, and that means the Maid / Matron of Honor, Junior Bridesmaids and Flower Girls. Of course the young people would not attend a night out on the town. If that’s the plan, they give them a gift at another time.
Everyone will have fun at such an event and it will give the girls a chance to get to know each other better.
Want to include the guys? Why not organize a barbecue, beach party, or something everyone will enjoy together, and send out “Celebrate the Wedding Party” invitations?
This round wedding menu template, in neutral black and white, works for just about any wedding reception theme. Add three monogram initials to the center. If this is used for a wedding the initials are added as follows: The center letter is the last name of the married couple, or the groom’s last name. The bride’s initial goes to the left, and the groom’s initial to the right.
However there are many ways to create a monogram. In this design, the middle initial, which is larger than the other two, can be used to create two initial with an ampersand (and sign) in between. In this way the Bride and Groom can use their first name initials to create the monogram.
If the initials look too large, scroll up the page and click “customize”. Then you will see a page that looks like the one below. Don’t let it scare you… find the letters, over on the right hand side and click that box.
Next, go down to the bottom left and hit the minus sign to make them smaller. When you are happy with the look, click “done” at the top of the page and you’ll go back to the original product page.
I will be happy to do this for you, or help with any part of the design and text placement. But sometimes, with a little help, the customer can complete the design on their own.
