Tell a story with photo template table number cards. Beach themed table seating that contains lots of personalization. The couple will choose to share different photos for each card and add up to 3 lines of text to explain the picture. White sand dollars (on both sides) have templates for the table number.
Each card can contain the same photo, but adding different photos makes them more unique and personal. Variety will give guests something to talk about. When they realize that each table card tells a different short story, they can mingle and check out the other table cards in the room.
The couple will have to decide what they want to share. Make it interesting by adding some fun, and maybe funny, photos. Wedding guests will love this little insight into your life together before marriage!
Other examples of what to share:
*Where you met
*How he (or she) proposed
*Day trips & vacation photos
*Time spent relaxing at the beach (works well with a beach themed wedding!)
*Favorite things – like a special pet / eating ice cream together
*Favorite local haunts
*Pictures from the wedding shower
*Photos with your kids (if either has some from another marriage)
Each couple will have their own special moments collected from the months or years leading up to the wedding day. Collecting photos for table number cards can be a fun activity to do together, and one the groom may not mind helping with! Split the number of tables between each of you and come up with your own favorite photos to use. It may even be helpful to ask for outside help from the bridesmaids and groomsmen if you can’t decide which photos are most interesting.
Where I live, in the northeastern United States, Spring still seems far away. These spring green bridal shower invitations were created from a photo I took of my own “Limelight” hydrangea flowers. Now the plants are buried in a couple feet of frozen snow. But the paper, and Spring Green stationery set, is a reminder of the beauty of summer, and I know that I’ll be digging in the garden one day.
I enjoy making beach themed wedding stationery, because I love the tropics and the water. Realistically, I never make it to the beach these days. So I divide my creative work between a few niches. One relates to beaches, seashells and nature found in Florida and other tropical locations.
My other niche is garden related and the BlueHyd store is full of pictures of hydrangea flowers. I love growing this perennial because it’s easy to care for. But best of all is the fact that the blooms last for such a long time. Even as they dry out and die, they are interesting and lovely.
The camera is in my hands a lot in the summer months. Capturing the beauty of a New England summer is essential because it is so fleeting. I photograph everything throughout June, July and August. From flowering shrubs to green beans and caterpillars, I capture the essence of the warm season as often as I can. Flowers are a favorite though, and when they are as beautiful as the elongated, light green “limelight” hydrangea flowers, I can’t resist. I use the best pictures to create wedding stationery, cards and posters. Usually the best images are posted on my Hydrangeas Blue gardening blog.
