Having a beach wedding gives you an endless list of possibilities to turn your wedding invitations into pieces of art that guests will want to hold on to forever.
Wedding invitations are a lot more than sources of information where the ceremony and reception will take place. They're an introduction to the event that is to come, an exciting preview of what is to be expected for the grand day.
Of course, you want your invitations to stand out from all the rest. It seems like nowadays there is a protocol set on how invitations should be made, making them ordinary and predictable for guests.
But these extraordinary trends are here to make a statement and show you that protocols are made to be broken and outshined.
1. Excite your guests with the hotel information
Traditional weddings in the bride or groom's hometown tend to be predictable. With a world that is becoming increasingly interested in discovering new horizons and destinations, spark your guests' interest by crafting an exciting invitation mentioning fun amenities and activities that will take place during the wedding festivities.
Everyone loves an insight into the amenities that the hotel has to offer. Be sure to mention how your hotel has a spa, golf course and is family-friendly, without sacrificing luxury.
2. Choose the design according to the destination
If your friends and family know that you're having a beach wedding, then surprise them with a creative design by personalizing the invitations to the destination. Like an amazing Mayan design if your wedding is taking place in the Riviera Maya.
You can even include a fun treasure hunt. Grand Velas Riviera Maya is the perfect place to set as the treasure to be found.
3. Include a list of fun activities that can be found in the location
Make your wedding invitations part of the holiday briefing by including extraordinary activities that the location has to offer.
If you're hosting your wedding in Riviera Nayarit, it is an excellent idea to include nearby attractions in the area, such as the Marieta Islands and a day of surfing in Sayulita.
4. Synchronize your invitation color scheme with that of your wedding
Before you send out the invitations it's pivotal that you have the theme and color scheme that will be used throughout your wedding. From the flower bouquet to the decorations.
Your invitations are part of your wedding event and as such, they should be carefully designed to suit your theme and color scheme.
5. Be Daring
We've all seen traditional wedding invitations with the habitual information: the name of the couple, the parents, place, and date of the event. Don't be afraid to add a little extra. Be daring, witty and extravagant.
There's something exciting about wedding invitations, so make the message exciting as well. You can tell an analogy, a joke or a riddle.
Let your creativity flow.
