Wedding Invitations and Matching Products Made by Zazzle Designers

Share This:

After the ring and the “I Do!” it’s time to begin the planning. Large or small, weddings are events that cause great stress and take massive amounts of time to coordinate. The invitations are usually an important part of that planning. The invitation, or more likely “save the date” cards, will be the first impression guests see. The paper is going to set the stage for the upcoming event.

The internet contains many, many places to find wedding invitations of all types. Some offer upscale foil or letterpress printing. Typography is big these days and unique lettering can add charm and interest. Invitations come in all shapes and sizes and at many price points. I dare say you can find paper in any theme imaginable. If your preference is plain and simple, minimalist, or black and white, you will find those too.

My stores, including Sandpiper Wedding, are run through Zazzle. I talk about this more on my About page. Many professional designers create wedding suites in association of Zazzle, and Zazzle offers specialty paper as beautiful as any found online.

I decided to write this blog post for those people who have never heard of Zazzle, or didn’t realize they offer wedding suites. Zazzle is known as the best place to find customizable designs. Combine custom options with beautiful designs and couples can create invitations or entire sets with their own wording. See the finished product on the screen before you buy.

Choosing Pictures for Wedding Stationery

Show Your Style
How do you go about choosing pictures for wedding stationery? Paper with templates, like I sell through Zazzle, make it simple to add an image. The designer has a place ready for your photos and all that is needed is for them to be uploaded.

Modern couples enjoy including a personal photo when announcing a wedding. With all the money spent on engagement photography, it’s no wonder. Save-the-date cards can contain a single or multi-photo template where various pictures of the couple can be included. Usually a typical shot has them posing in a field, in front of a barn, or on the beach, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. But unconventional photos, like the one in my intro picture, could be used to convey the couple’s unique personalities.

Invitations to the wedding ceremony can also have photo templates. And thank you cards are probably the most used when it comes to including a picture. The newlyweds can show off beautiful scenes from the wedding day while thanking guests for the gifts. These are opportunities to include gorgeous couple photos, whereas the cute photo could be saved for the marriage announcement.

A good photographer will know how to show off the qualities that make each couple unique. Be sure to convey the type of photos you will expect to be taken, and listen to suggestions made by the photographer. Eclectic, nontraditional, and more modern choices will make for a more personal statement.

Personal Postage Fun

Seahorse Postage for Weddings or ?
Making personal postage is fun and easy at the Zazzle.com site. Begin with a ready made stamp in your choice of theme / color / image, and add text or a photo to make it yours, or start from scratch. We have many custom stamps at Sandpiper Wedding.

A stamp with templates means you will replace whatever is in that template area with something else. This cute orange seahorse postage has a text template. The sample text is two names, and it was made with a wedding in mind. The seahorses represent the bride and groom so adding their names would be appropriate. But this template can hold any text that will fit the space.
Use it as summer party postage with “You’re Invited” in the template. Write out a special date, or say “thank you”. That is the beauty of finding a template to use.
A photo template means any picture / image / photo can take it’s place.

There are many postage stamps at Zazzle and if you don’t find what you want, consider making your own personal postage. Upload a favorite image to fit the desired size stamp. If text is needed, add it yourself in the customize area. All postage must be approved by the U.S. postal service but that usually only adds one day delay, unless it’s a weekend. Then you must wait until Monday.

Personalized Wine Labels With Scallop Shell Art

Large Wine Bottle Labels

Wedding wine labels can be used on favors at the reception and are usually added to bottles of specialty wine chosen by the couple. We create horizontal or vertical favor labels in large (4.5 x 2.7 inches) and small label (3.75 x 2 inches) sizes.

The one shown here is light blue with orange text to match the colors in the scallop shell artwork – which is an original design, and not clip art.  As you can see a custom message to the wedding guests can be added to the top, with the bride’s and groom’s names along with the date of the wedding (if you choose) below.  Use the template at the bottom to include the name of the wine or spirits inside.

Eight stickers per sheet for the smaller labels and four per sheet for the large size.  Bulk discounts begin at 2 sheets for the large and the smaller labels have a minimum order of 5 sheets, but also offer discounts for multiple orders.  View each type of label to learn more on the product pages.

As always, we are happy to make something special for you!

“Our Wedding Day” Program In Purple

Pretty Purple – Fold in Half Program

Purple is still a very popular choice of colors when it comes to weddings. Hence, I’ve made a purple, beach wedding program. In fact, purple can be seen everywhere as a modern fashion option for any occasion. Brides love to dress the attendants in lovely shades of purple and lavender which enhances her wedding dress in a nice contrast.
Purple flowers can include elegant orchids, beautiful roses, raunuculus, hydrangeas, poppies and calla lilies. All of which make stunning bouquets and centerpieces for the reception tables. Lavender and dark purple combined with green, pink, white, pale blue or red will look extraordinary. It’s one of those colors that will go with just about anything.
So the custom wedding program in purple is a logical choice for a wedding with a theme that includes the beach or tropics. At Sandpiper Wedding everything is very easy to customize and we are available to help make changes to suit your needs.

Announce the Rehearsal and Dinner After on Realistic Seashells

Share This:

Let a collection of pretty seashells be the backdrop for the rehearsal dinner invitation. This design has the wording on a white panel that is offset and to the side of the 5×7 inch, flat card. The font style is a combination of casual, handwritten script and broken print text in light blue. We’d be happy to change it for you, if it’s not your thing.
The seashells that cover the background of the stationery were collected along the beaches of Florida. Prominently displayed are the little, striped sea urchin, calico scallop with it’s dark pinkish purple splotches and a piece of a sand dollar.
The theme of beach shells goes well with any summertime event or beach destination wedding.
This invitation mentions the time of the rehearsal as well as the time of the dinner that will take place afterwards. Templates make it easy to personalize line by line, with the couple’s names at the bottom. Choose whichever paper type you prefer, or leave it at basic for the cheapest price. A minimum order of ten is required, and choose the amount needed by increments of 5 after that. Just type in the number of invitations required.
