Beach Wedding Invitations That Set the Mood for a Seaside Celebration
Beach weddings are a fan favorite, promising stellar views and a whole lot of waterfront inspiration. Whether it's seaside, lakeside, portside, or bayside, there's plenty to showcase when it comes to a wedding venue on (or near) the water. If the surf's up for your nuptials, get guests ready to dive into the celebration with a stationery suite embracing the location. The following examples designed for coastal and tropical affairs channeled the themes of sand, sun, and fun. Island lovers and shoreline enthusiasts alike, get ready to meet your marine-invitation match.
As you'll see here, there are plenty of ways to incorporate beachy ideas into your wedding invitations. You can feature maps and illustrations of your beach wedding locale, decorate your paper goods with maritime motifs, or send out stationery with a beach-themed color palette or design (blues and wave prints are just the start). Work with unique details—like your envelopes or stamps—to really drive the theme home. Take this Savannah Rose FitzGerald invite, which displayed a painted portrait of the Hawaiian coast for one couple's cliffside event. Hawaii-inspired postage and packaging made it even more beautiful (and unforgettable).
No matter what your wedding's vibe is—elegant, whimsical, or nautical, to name a few—there's a beachy stationery suite to base your own invites off of. Ahead, see some of our favorite beach wedding invitation ideas. No matter how they represented the venues they were created for, they surely got guests excited about the celebration's location from the get-go.
