Is a Beach Wedding Invitation Different from Normal?

Aug 18, 2007
A beach wedding is certainly full of fun. In a beach wedding, it will be a lot less formal. Both of the couple and also the guests may walk on the beach with their bare foot. The sea and the blue sky certainly form an extremely beautiful picture. The sound of waves from the sea is the most perfect wedding music. The guests can also dress causally. They do not need to put a tie or formal dress on. This is why beach weddings become more and more popular.

As a beach wedding should be less formal than other form of weddings, one may ask if the wedding invitation should also be less formal, or somehow causal. In fact there is no definite answer about this question. Even if a beach wedding is planned, a formal invitation can also be chosen. However, it may render more fun if a more informal invitation is chosen.

One simple idea of a less formal invitation for a beach wedding is to put some seashell patterns on the wedding card. Embossing will certainly a perfect choice. What is good about embossing is that the guests can "feel" the seashell patterns by their hand. Alternatively, you can print images of seashells on the card.

If you would like to have even more fun and meaning for your beach wedding invitation. You can put real seashell into the wedding invitation. The easiest way is to put a seashell in each envelope. You can also treat the invitation as a sculpture such that the invitation itself is a seashell made from plaster.

The idea of a plaster seashell as a wedding invitation should be very interesting. However, such a sculpture will render difficulties in sending the invitation. You will need to prepare for a higher mailing cost.

If you find this idea of seashell sculpture is too difficult for you to handle, you may try an easier idea. You can put a little bit of sand into the wedding invitation. The most convenient way is to stick a layer of sand on the invitation card such that every guest will know there will be a beach wedding without reading the details of the wedding.

Besides sticking a layer of sand on the wedding card, a very tiny bottle of sand may also work. You can treat the bottle of sand as a entry ticket and the guests have to bring the bottles in order to attend the wedding ceremony and reception. What is good about this idea tiny bottles is that you can get a three dimensional wedding invitation and at the same time it is not too difficult to send them out.

A third idea, and it may be the easiest way to make the wedding invitation, is to draw a cartoon of the beach you are going to have the wedding reception. A beach wedding is meant to be funny and joyful and it is totally alright to have a wedding invitation with funny cartoons on it. If you are good at drawing, you can even draw the cartoon yourself. This will make the wedding card even more meaningful.

Apart from the invitation, the same cartoon drawing can be printed as tickets for the "permission" for the guests to walk on the beach with their bare foot. This can make more fun out both of the wedding invitation and the wedding reception.

If you do not want the invitation to be a cartoon wedding card, you can try to take a photo of the beach you are going to have the wedding reception. Then you can print the photo onto the wedding invitation. A black and white photo will be extremely perfect for the invitation. This black and white photo delivers a sense of romance to guests.

You can also work as the models in the photo. It can be a photo depicting the idea that you two are walking on the beach. It can be also something like a snapshot, depicting a happy moment of both of you on the beach.

Indeed there are a lot more beach wedding idea online. You can just let your imagination fly and you can get the most creative idea, if not the craziest, for you beach wedding invitation.
