Beach Save the Dates

Many engaged couples are having small, private beach weddings for the more intimate feel that you get as opposed to when having a ceremony at a more traditional venue. Beach weddings are often casual and are perfect for those that love the surf and sand between their toes and the ocean breeze on their face.

Since weddings that take place on beaches often require travel for your wedding guests, sending save the dates for your ocean-side wedding should be done as early as possible. This gives them time to make travel arrangements and reserve rooms at a resort or hotel. Beach weddings are the perfect event to use themed invitations featuring seaside related depictions such as shells, sand, ocean, surfboards, sunglasses, tropical fruit, sunsets/sunrises, and even sailboats.

Some couples aren't having their wedding on the beach, but had their engagement photos made ocean-side and plan to use them to send out photo save the dates. These templates serve as wonderful ideas to get a feel for what it would look like if you plan to use photos from the beach on your save the date cards, postcards, or magnets.
