The look of modern typography adds to the casual elegance of the palm trees wedding invitation in sepia tones. A deep gray-brown solid background is paired with light gray text. Combining various rustic and tall printed fonts brings the date of the event to the forefront.

For a full view of the palm trees used on the front, flip the card over to see the image in light blue.

Scenic beach images make wonderful backgrounds to custom text. I use these free, public domain images often in my designs. Usually only a portion of the photo is needed, or I change the color / transparency. Creating something unique is what I work hard to accomplish. Now that I live in Florida again, I can even use my own photography for beach-themed designs.

The beautiful blue-green water just hitting the shore adds color to the top of the front of this card. Because the color is so perfect for a beach wedding, I chose to fill the reverse side with the same color. It appears that the back is simply an image of ocean water.

Big Names and Starfish Invitation

These affordable wedding invitations will absolutely stun the invitee. Specialty paper, such as “champagne shimmer” is a favorite of buyers. The edges of the paper need not be boring either. Paper cuts include notched corners, bracket shape, rounded corners and scalloped.

These new designs will be getting some matching stationery, but in the mean time please contact me for specific items. We have RSVP cards, custom postage and address labels to work with, and they can all be designed to match anything in our Sandpiper Wedding store.

If fun lettering is not really your thing, perhaps a photo invitation is more your style?

Add a personal message inside the card over a background image of palm trees by the beach.

The sample message inside is only a suggestion, and can be replaced with your choice of wording. In fact, this card can be used to thank more than guests.

One idea is to replace the photo of the newlyweds with one of the flower girl, and use it to say thanks to her. Wouldn’t she love to have her picture on the front of a card!

Front of Invitation

Palm trees are one of the most recognizable images associated with the tropics. There is a surprisingly large variety of palm trees and not all are tall and swaying.

Back of Invitation

Palm trees are often added to tropical landscapes and often grow wild in tropical locations. Tall, stately palms add immeasurable interest to a tropical yard. See photos at HGTV where tall palms bring life to a yard.

Those of us living in the tropics can also have potted palms, or smaller specimens included in a garden setting. The Parlor Palm has no real trunk, just long feathery leaves. Depending on the type, palm leaves can be bright green or silver gray. The fronds, or leaves, can be feathery and soft-looking, or stiff and pointed.

If you’ve ever watched hurricane footage, or been in a hurricane, you’ve no doubt witnessed how well palm trees withstand very high winds. While tall oak trees with long branches can be broken or totally unearthed, the palm tree simply bends and sways in the high winds. The fronds may blow off, but the tree remains. Rarely does a palm tree fall in high winds.

Spring Beach Wedding Thoughts

Custom Favor Stickers

A beach wedding in spring could be wonderful for couples who prefer alone time. Spring is right around the corner, and any couples who have a wedding day looming are very busy putting the finishing touches on their plans. Springtime is a fabulous time of year to tie the knot, whether on a beach or some place else. The heat of summer has not arrived in many spots, so the couple can expect a comfortable day (fingers crossed). Dark and bright colored clothing may be more appropriate in spring than summer for just that reason.

Beaches in spring can be interesting places. With colder water temperatures, crowds are fewer, and storms can churn up the water depositing some interesting sea life along the coastline. Any couples who like long, quiet walks along the shore searching for seashells would love that!

Also, family vacations are not in full swing because the kids are still in school (unless you choose to marry during a spring break time). Picture yourself lost on a deserted island as you celebrate being Mr. and Mrs. in a honeymoon bungalow.
