With summer right around the corner, we immediately start thinking of destination weddings, namely beach weddings! We wanted to share many of the ways we have designed seaside save the dates, invitations, or accessories for beachy weddings. The above save the date doesn’t feature obvious seaside touches, but a nod to a sandy beach in the coloring, and a natural seagrass string ties a note to guests.

For this seaside affair, a simple shell motif is paired with a flourishy touch to add some formality to it. The palette features a sand and water vibe. For the menu, we switched up the shell motif for the dinner menus and used a sand dollar illustration.

Not all beachside fetes have to include “shells”… A save the date for a wedding in Santa Barbara, CA features a watercolor illustration of palm trees and coastline.

Just making mention of a known beach location like Hawaii, can be the right design for a beachside wedding. Here, a vintage style illustration of surfers makes the printing perfectly on point.

The ocean notes continue throughout the rest of the wedding printing here… The dinner escort cards featured a mix of actual shells attached and displayed in bed of sand. Dinner menus are simple so that the real sanddollars are the stars, and for take home cake boxes, starfish faintly appear in the background.

For another Sea Island, GA wedding, guests received embroidered beach totes with a sand dollar design… Inside were take home beach towels also embroidered! And, cocktail hour drinks were adorned with stir sticks with tiny shells.
