Sweet Seaside Wedding

If I had to do it all over again, I might have chosen a beach wedding. There’s something so sweet about the smell of sea breezes and the cool tones that accompany a beach scene. Imagine your hair down, a flowing white dress, casual attire and the beauty of white sands and gorgeous blues and sea greens. Here’s my idea of an idyllic beach wedding.

Suite Dreams…

By guest blogger: Geeta Sachdeva

There’s something about receiving a wedding card in the mail that makes me open it right away.
And I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the one I got just yesterday. Ranging from sky to cobalt, not only did each piece have a different shade of blue, they also had different motifs. The invitation was adorned with a hibiscus flower, the response card had a star-fish on it, there was a sea shell on the reception card and a pair of baby-sized flip-flops attached to the directions card. In spite of varied colors and designs, the sea -n-sand element provided a unifying theme for their destination wedding. The result was a beautiful wedding suite that reflected their personality as a couple.

If you too would like to step away from tradition and customize your invitation then try to incorporate as much of your individual style as you can. Create one that does more than just inform guests about your special day. Express your story with something fun, unique and personal.

Did you know that all Wedding Paper Divas invitations come in the same matte finish and use the same (110 pound) cardstock? And since all enclosures are offered a la carte, you may choose components from different suites and still achieve an overall consistency.

So why not dream up a suite that’s all your own and leave your guests absolutely amazed?
