The starfish couple is prominent on beach wedding paper. From save-the-date cards and invitations, to gift bags and favors, two starfish holding hands, or dancing on the shore, seem to be an image couples can’t resist.
The rehearsal dinner is sometimes as big an event as the wedding itself, or almost. Families gather, maybe for the first time, to celebrate with the bride and groom the night before the ceremony.
Custom rehearsal dinner invitations for the starfish couple lovers.

Although a line of RSVP text can be added to these invitations, some people prefer to include mailable reply cards. In that case, we have a whole collection of affordable, decorated and plain, RSVP cards. Some have menu list options, and some do not. All have paper selections to match the invitation paper you choose, and they come with white envelopes.
Most often you will find aqua blue, turquoise, taupe, tan colors on the bridesmaids and groomsmen at a beach wedding. Tropical colors are popular and easy to find when searching for everything from invitations to shower decor.
But for the more subtle bride, a neutral palette may be just what is needed, so our newest design line was created for a white wedding theme.
At one time white was THE wedding choice. White meant weddings. Now it’s all about color, and choosing a color theme as an express the personality of the bride and groom. Bright and bold tropical colors are all about fun and playfulness. Subtle tan and white could be a sign of a more reserved personality, or simply a more reserved wedding.
So I have these marvelous photos of starfish tucked into hydrangeas. One is a white “blushing bride” (that is the name of the hydrangea) bloom, and the other is light blue. I will write about the “Seaside Blue” design at a later time. But it is also a stunning choice for blue-themed weddings.
The stationery suite is new, with more items added all the time. Presently there are invitations, RSVP cards, paper napkins and stickers in the Seaside White Wedding Collection. New products will be added daily and by the time you read this, the set may be complete.
Weddings are personal. The closest people in our lives are asked to be present at the beginning of a new life. Make the wedding more personal and invite guests by name. As you can see on the folded wedding invitation above, a line has been added which will hold the name of the guest who will open the card. Each guest will, in this way, receive his or her personal invitation.
Choosing to mail wedding invitations in this fashion will impress guests, as it will probably be something they have not seen before. If the couple is willing to put in the time and effort of adding the names inside, the reward is that guests will feel special.
Tropical starfish on periwinkle blue invitations to a couple’s shower. Periwinkle is such a lovely color, and is totally appropriate for wedding stationery. I think the starfish design looks perfect on this purple-blue card.
Beach often contain typical aqua, turquoise, and beige colors which mimic the colors of the sea and sand. If you are tired of seeing typical and common invitations, you may love what we have to offer. The Pantone color(s) of the year (2016) are rose quartz (light pink) and serenity (looks like periwinkle to me!).
The Bayside wedding suite collection contains invitations and reply cards as well as many matching items.
The theme is “destination, beach” as are all of our wedding sets. The Bayside stationery design is an elegant champagne gold, gradient color with white starfish. Graphic “ribbons” hold the starfish in place while the text is printed over a white panel. The effect, on some of the paper, is that the ribbon is wrapped around the printed invitation and starfish, which creates a unique presentation.
Besides invitations and reply cards, this set contains two personalized wedding planner notebooks. One has a photo template, and both have lined paper inside to jot down plans, keep written thoughts when visiting wedding venues, or journal feelings leading up to the big day. Fill 80 pages of this spiral bound keepsake, with information to read on anniversaries as you celebrate the years together.
Also find shower invitations, stamps, stickers and labels in this collection. As always, please shoot us an e-mail and request any items you may need.
Tropical themed Christmas postage to mix and match with address labels.
Our popular starfish and holly design fits well on bright red stamps. “Love & Joy” is the holiday message beneath two white sea stars draped in green holly. The matching address labels have the same starfish image with white text.
Use the RSVP postage for Christmas party invitations. If you prefer a more beachy appearance, we have matching stamps and address labels in other themes, including beach sand and a wreath with starfish decorations.
