Beach Scene Marriage Announcement and Newlywed Reception Stationery

beach wedding
Announcement and Invitation – Click image to view
This marriage announcement and reception party invitation card combines elements that scream B E A C H ! The background image is a huge palm tree hanging over a pristine tropical beach. A calm ocean, which is the perfect color of aquamarine blue, shines on the horizon.

The font style is a combination of script and printed text, in dark blue and coral pink, hence adding to the tropical vibe. The names and party title stand out, and all text is set over a transparent white panel. Square paper was chosen for this card and the shape cannot be changed. I want the pink conch shell in the corner to remain visible as part of the design, and changing the size may remove it.

There are many text template lines which make it simple to add information about the private wedding ceremony and where it took place. This gives friends and family insight into the marriage with an opportunity to party it up with the newlywed couple.

To complete this unique beach wedding card, another coastal image was added to the reverse. Invitees will practically feel the warmth of the sun, and tropical breezes blow, while they read this invitation!

In addition to this new invitation design, we offer many other card choices with similar wording, for the same type of celebration. Some have photo templates, while others do not. To view many designs we offer, please CLICK HERE which will take you to the “reception only” collection.

Our Tropical Address Christmas Labels, Stickers and Seals

Our starfish and ocean scene address labels are best sellers, but we also offer Christmas labels with a tropical theme. (This one works for every season!)

Starfish Couple Return Address

Sorry if you don’t really want to think about the holidays, but this is a simple and inexpensive purchase, and it will add panache to your end of year outgoing mail. In only a few months we will begin to celebrate the Christmas season. It comes earlier each year, and can’t be ignored.

The labels come in three sizes. One is a large shipping label, but the other two can be used as return address. Skinny labels are quite popular, but the medium size labels may work better for those who have a longer address, such as a condo or apartment number. Use four lines, if needed, and don’t let the text get too close to the edge. As is true for almost every product at Zazzle, there is a “bleed line” where the edge can get cut off.

Looking for something rather non-traditional? Use round and square address stickers to use as envelope seals. Include a Christmas message, as in the round sticker below. All text, including the curved wording at the top and bottom, is easy to change. Or delete it if you prefer no message.

The labels come in three sizes and the stickers offer more options. Each product page gives a good description of what is available. Just click on any of the products above. Or visit our TROPICAL ADDRESS LABELS collection, or our HOLIDAY ADDRESS LABELS collection.

Blank Wedding Paper With a Beach Background

I believe that the easiest way to create beautiful wedding stationery is to use template invitations. But often couples prefer to print their own invitations, or wedding programs. For this they will need some nice blank wedding paper.

Print Your Own Invitations

The invitation paper offered at Zazzle has many upgrade options and is perfect for anyone looking for pretty paper. In this post I will show you some blank wedding paper I offer with a beach background. Inviting, turquoise blue, crystal clear water and smooth beach sand makes a most beautiful backdrop for text.

Double Sided Paper

Seafoam green water and a large section of beach is the photography image on this paper. Size 5×7, with specialty paper options, this stationery features the same image on both sides, just like the others above.

The paper below has a more exciting element as the photographer has captured crashing waves at the shoreline. Distinct blue, white and brown colors will be the backdrop for your invitation wording.

By the way, I will be happy to add your invitation text to any of these designs. The cost of each will jump slightly. Please contact me for more information.

Periwinkle Blue Couple’s Shower Invitations

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 10.18.37 AM
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!).

I’ll admit that periwinkle has long been a favorite color of mine. I love the idea of using it to make some new wedding stationery for those planning a tropical destination wedding event. Continue reading Periwinkle Blue Couple’s Shower Invitations

Photo Announcement For the Bride and Groom

Save Our Date!
Our new, modern, gray and silver photo wedding announcement is decorated with pineapples. The cute, quatrefoil frame holds a horizontal (landscape) view of the engaged couple. This neutral palette is printed on magnetic invitation paper, so guests can post it on the fridge, on in the office cube, or any metal surface, as a reminder of the big day.

This card is standard postcard size (4.25 x 5.6 in.), and can easily be changed to the 5×7 inch size. No envelopes come with this magnetic card, but we have a matching one if you’d like (see below). It makes a lovely set without spending a ton of money.

We have ceremony invitations and other items to match the gray, pineapple theme. Please view the set here.
