Decorated with seashells, anchors and sea life, the folded notes are perfect for thanking members of a beach wedding party.

The Key Largo Wedding Welcome Bag

Share This:

Key Largo, Florida Wedding Welcome Bag
These wedding welcome, paper bags for guests have been specifically made with a Key Largo wedding in mind. These are white bags with blue and brown starfish couple and custom text templates on both sides. I have not made the destination text customizable because there is a map of Florida on the back with a big red star over the Key Largo location. The map cannot easily be removed by the customer. Please ask if you would like a bag like this with your Florida wedding location “starred”.


Starfish are popular with couples, but we also have a nautical anchor bag design. It has the same map on the back. This one however also has a place for the name of the location / venue at the top on the reverse.

So where is Key Largo? It is the northern most key in the string of Florida keys. It is known for it’s large underwater reef at the John Pennecamp Reef State Park. There is boating, snorkeling and diving in this large body of water that is protected by the state.
As in all of the keys, the sunsets will be magnificent. The water will be clear and gorgeous and the beaches lovely. It’s a fabulous place to plan a beach wedding. Simply google “Key Largo Weddings” and see what is available.

Zazzle sells nice, quality wrapping paper on a roll. You will even have a choice of sizes and paper types. Choose from matte, glossy, linen and tyvek. The matte paper is the cheapest, with a soft surface. Glossy paper is ideal for paper like the type here, with photos. Linen is an upscale, cross-hatch type paper and Tyvek is rip resistant, and also the most expensive. Each roll is 30 inches wide and comes in lengths from six feet to sixty feet long, so it’s easy to have enough to wrap presents! Continue reading Christmas Gift Wrap With Personal Photo Templates

Navy and Tan Nautical Wedding Paper

Share This:

striped nautical wedding paperA new design in blue and tan, with a nautical theme, for a wedding taking place near (or on) the water. A navy blue anchor replaces the ampersand in this modern wording set up. The first names of the bride and groom are dark, printed font and the remaining text is easy to read script. Horizontal stripes on the background are partially covered by a white, oval overlay which holds the custom text. The tree lines of text at the top says, “with happy hearts full of love we invite you to share in the happy union of” and it can be customized with your own invitation text. The names of the parents can take this area if they are paying for the wedding. Or better yet, e-mail us your wording preferences and we’ll create one for you. Being a brand new design in our Sandpiper Wedding store, the set is small, with two matching reply cards only at the present time. But more items will soon fill the Nautical Navy design line. Can’t wait? Request something and we’ll make it right away. The same goes for any of our wedding suites.

Decorating With Shells For a Beach Wedding Reception

Share This:


Whether your wedding reception is on the beach in Hawaii, or you marry in Kansas City, a tropical ambiance can be achieved by choosing the right decor.  Seashells mean oceans and sand and tropical sunsets, and using seashells in some form for everything from magnificent centerpiece arrangements to just a few candles.  (View a beautiful centerpiece on this page at Andrea Lauren Interiors).

Even a few seashells or starfish scattered around the tables can make for an interesting addition.   Small, natural seashells, purchased in bulk are not expensive.  Look for commonly found shells in various sizes.  They can be purchased online or possibly Continue reading Decorating With Shells For a Beach Wedding Reception
