10 BEACH WEDDING THEME INVITATIONS TO LOVE


Beach wedding theme invitations can be hard to love. If there aren’t starfish in every corner, there will be too much blue and yellow. There can also be that blurring between Tropicana, nautical, even under the sea. Where’s the line?
We think that the key to Beach Wedding Themed Invitations is maintaining that relaxed tone you want for your wedding. Let those lines blur and don’t be afraid to stick to your guns on the things that you really, really like. If that means that there has to be star fish and swathes of blue, then make sure they’re done well. We’ve found a couple that find the perfect balance, although we’ve also found some beach themed things that made us want to cringe.

TOP 10 BEACH WEDDING INVITATION IDEAS

1. WATERCOLOUR OCEAN

Watercolour done well can be quite subtle. Here, the standard blue is lost in the stroke variation and brush tip that fills in the texture of the paper. We like the idea of a silver foil press, even a curling wave typeface if you can’t let that traditional beach theme go.

2. ABSTRACT WATERCOLOUR

This is another example of subtle watercolour. We think the effect of the colour, shape and typeface is relaxed but chic. Contrasted by something to make this green-blue stand out, the colour scheme could easily carry over into the wedding day itself.

3. SIMPLE OR STYLISED WAVES

Okay, this isn’t strictly beach themed. Or Tropicana. Or nautical. Still, we think this is appropriate for a beach themed wedding because of the repeated round shape that might be a wave. Or, in a different colour it might be any number of things, which is a nice way to keep things understated.

4. FEATURED ARTIST: TROPICANA

These are all colour and maybe a little Tropicana but why not? We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: we love Camilla Frances! With a bold serif typeface in a contrasting colour, the wedding invitations can be hung up as art, not just on the fridge.

5. NAUTICAL

A common trap with nautical is that blue and white sailor stripe. This invitation set has escaped by playing by using soft colours and simple nautical symbols.

6. UNDER THE SEA

Under the sea can often be quite busy. This under the sea wedding invitation uses all the symbols, with an understated blue that doesn’t overwhelm those essential wedding details.

7. THE COASTAL SCAPE

This coastal scape could easily have gone wrong: another colour scale and it would look too much like an over filtered Instagram post. As it is, the muted colours of this image are perfect. The circle in the middle is a good way to bring text out of the image.

8. BY THE SEA SIDE

Show where you’re getting married with an image of the place. To avoid the sun bleached photograph, be inspired by this invitation and try an illustration.

9. PATTERNED

We stumbled across this one and started to wonder why we hadn’t thought of a seaside inspired invitation that uses bright colours and gives room for a fun font. We especially love the pale grey dots of sea spray around the edges.

10. ELEGANT AND SIMPLE WAVES

Here is an idea for an elegant Beach Wedding Theme Invitation to Love. After some hunting around, we founf something relatively simple and effective that creates an elegant feel.
