I was inspired to write this post because of the above fantastic sandy toes and salty kisses beach wedding invitations set found on Lemon Leaf Prints. What a fun beach or destination wedding theme!
The verse is so cute: “Sandy toes and salty kisses, please join us as we become Mr. and Mrs”. There are a variety of variations on the verse as well. The verse looks great on the above rustic wooden beach sign and palm leaves wedding invitations and save the date postcards (the wedding invitation is seen on the right and the front of the save the date postcard is on the left). This sandy toes and salty kisses mr and mrs beach wedding invitation and save the date postcard is a great choice for a beach wedding or a tropical destination wedding.
This particular version of the invitation set features a rustic weathered multi-colored painted wood beach sign with beach symbols such as dolphins, starfish and seashells. The bright colors bring to mind gorgeous sunsets, Caribbean waters and tropical vegetation, all with a slightly retro feel. It is bright, fun and hints of happy times. The palm tree leaves are a nice added touch. You can just imagine seeing this sign outside a cabana located right on the beach.
There are so many wonderful reasons to have a tropical destination wedding, it is easy to see why it is becoming a popular choice for couples. Who can resist the thought of an exotic locale with beautiful weather, sandy beaches and tropical drinks to share with friends and family, especially when it comes with a lot less stress than a traditional wedding at home.
Surprisingly, destination weddings are very affordable, since many all inclusive resorts offer free wedding packages and have complimentary wedding planners ready to help with all the details, from the ceremony to the wedding cake. Just keep in mind, destination weddings tend to be smaller than those held at home. Not everyone will be able to make it.
So, if you’ve always dreamed of a huge wedding, an away wedding may not be for you. However, if a more intimate event is what you’re looking for, this could be perfect, and you can always have a post-wedding reception celebration party when you get back. In fact, you could use this invitation as your post-wedding reception only invitation as well. In this case, the verse would say: “Sandy toes, salty kisses, we just became Mr. and Mrs”. You would then list the wedding particulars, along with details about the beach themed reception party to help you celebrate.
If you are planning to have a destination wedding, save the date announcements are a good idea. Make sure to send out the save the dates very early, since some guests will want to start saving and reserve the time off work.
