Message in a Bottle as your Beach Wedding Invitation

HansonEllis was one of the websites where I found some useful ideas in choosing my beach wedding favors, and also for my unique wedding invitations. Useful banners to be clicked at the left side of my site, to see all interesting items in this website especially for Beach Weddings.

Originally, I wanted to send an "Invitation in a bottle" but we thought that we were gonna have problems of sending them to our guests. I found this fabulous and unique way of inviting our guests. However, I had to find other ideas and I came up with this one, still very unique though. If you are planning your beach wedding, why not sending your invitation in a bottle as you can see below.

Casually invite guests to your destination wedding or tropical theme event with our starfish bottle invitations. Each clear glass bottle is filled with fine coral sand, assorted miniature seashells, and is adorned with a real starfish. Create your own message inside the glass bottle or let them do it for you. Their custom invitation is printed on an ivory linen paper and is attached to a oil paper with earthy cedar leaves. For a personal touch, have the bride and groom's names and event date laser engraved on the bottle. If you are mailing these glass bottles out, add our white corrugated box along with our seashell RSVP card (optional). All bottles come corked.

bottle size: 7"H x 1-3/4" in diameter

A clever way was discovered to send a special message to the other side of the world by means of “A message in a bottle”. They have recreated this unique piece that will send forth your special message to your guest. Use it as a beach wedding invitation or setting for the guest at your special event. These glass bottles are filled with fine sand and real mini seashells. Add a message made of natural oil paper with cedar leaves to these glass bottles as an invitation or a thank you note to your guest (optional). If you are mailing these bottles as an invitation, get our white corrugated mailing box (optional) and our elegant RSVP card. Each beach invitation bottle is firmly corked and is adorned with a raffia ribbon.

glass bottle: 7"H x 1-3/4" in diameterMessage Bottles have long been associated as a romantic gesture, a concept dating far back through the centuries to days gone by. Nowadays with increasing popularity of beach theme weddings and exotic locations, Message Bottle invitations make great way of inviting your guests using a traditional concept with a modern but contemporary flair.

Choosing Beach Wedding Favors for a Fairy Tale Wedding


Every couple wishes to have a one of kind favors that would provide their guests with a
feeling of awe, a lasting impression of its uniqueness, so you must give some personal touches unto them (please see my personalized wedding favors I've had decided myself for my beach wedding). Wedding favors should be charming and unique as possibly as you can do, not necessarily complicated ones which you end up spending a lot of money in choosing the right one for you. Should be simple, yet elegant, leaving your guests feeling as special as you and your betrothed feel on this very special day. This can create an experience for your guest long after your wedding is over. Unique favors are more than just a souvenir, it is their memory about your wedding. So, it is needed to choose the unique and special wedding favor for you guest.

When selecting favors for your wedding, the only true criterion is the taste and budget of the bride and groom or the wedding planner. Gifts are today an expression of the bride’s taste and sensibilities, and should be considered as such when making the item selection. History and tradition have their place, but ultimately the bride should decide on what’s best for her, and come to the most unique expression of her creativity based on her own preferences.

Every person is different, a unique individual, with unique tastes and opinion and of course with different budget. Every couple will want to have the best wedding because the memories will last forever. However, it is not quiet simple to having the perfect wedding. If you were to ask any couple who have gone through the experience, most of them will testify that preparation for a wedding is both exciting and nerve-wrecking. However, with a little planning, getting all those preparation, from the theme, location the perfect date to the personality wedding favors ready to go can be a pleasant and satisfying experience.

FAVORS TO BE GIVEN AWAY

Unique, ocean scented candles with an array of pretty sea shells "floating" within them, are bound to create a conversation piece amongst your guests. This candle's scent will transport everyone to a romantic beach somewhere along the Greek coastline, where music plays and the breeze dances playfully to the rhythm. You can include with this beautifully aromatic gift fine heart confetti almonds with delicious chocolate centers for your guests' enjoyment.



GUESTS PLACING CARDS

Should you desire to present unique and unusual placing cards for your guest tables, an assortment of real jewels from the sea with potpourri in a jewel beaded organza bag may be the perfect complement to your ceremony. You can simply attach your guest's name and table number to the organza ribbon. It makes an elegant piece that will be an eye-catching addition to any wedding table decor.




TABLE CENTERPIECE

Of course, no formal event is complete without the perfect table centerpiece. Every great centerpiece deserves a solid supporting act. Imagine a Heart-Shaped Gold Wire Basket adorning the tables of your guests. Imagine further this elegant piece accompanied with silver or gold burlap bags filled with heavenly, aromatic potpourri and matching color organza bows. Each guest could select a bag of their choosing for a pretty scented keepsake as an aromatic reminder of your perfect wedding.


You have the power to create the most perfect and elegant wedding celebration --- a romantic, fairytale wedding.

Tips To Have A Unique Beach Wedding Reception


What a wonderful feeling to have had experienced, a very different from the traditional reception at a catering establishments or hotels, and what an undeniable appeal to have had a soft and breezy feel of a beach wedding reception. Here are some tips to help you capture that magical wedding ambiance in the atmosphere, so it doesn't feel like just a get-together or a family reunion at the beach. I generally compiled all the tips for a beach wedding reception, not just concentrating in one place.

Creating the Beach Wedding Setting

Probably one of the most important investments you will make is to rent an open canopy under which all of your tables will fit comfortably. It defines the location of your reception as guests approach, it is a necessity for your elderly guests, and it will be your refuge when you need to get out of the sun for awhile. Unless it's going to rain, an open-sided canopy is your best bet. The gentle ocean breeze will be enjoyed by all, and your guests will have full visibility of their beautiful surroundings while, of course, they'll be provided with shade. You can turn this canopy into a bridal oasis simply by wrapping generous amounts of white tulle around the posts and draping it around the top frame. Adorn the tulle with string pearls or with flowers and ribbons of your coordinated wedding colors. If you're wedding will continue into the night, wrap white Christmas lights around it for a romantic glow. Use lantern style candles on the tables, so they'll stay lit in spite of the ocean breeze.

Beach Theme Color Selection and Seating

Think of the beach, and you think light and airy. Soft pastel colors and bright white that naturally blend with the surroundings are best. Lighter colors will not retain heat like darker colors do and are easier on the eye in the bright sunlight. Round tables are nice for the beach. No sharp corners to worry about. Here's a clever tip if you want assigned seating for your guests. Make a "message in the bottle". Take a small clear glass bottle (a lot of dollar stores carry them), fill them almost full with beach sand and write the table number your guests will be seated at on a square piece of white paper. Roll it into a scroll, write the guests name on the outside of the scroll, and stick it in the bottle. Display them on a small table with beach sand spread on top. Another idea is to write their name and table number on a white clam shell. Attach a little bow to it, and you're done! Please be sure to use a special pen with a glittery sheen and a coordinating color of your wedding. Attention to details is what separates your event from an average one into an extraordinary one that people will remember.

Beach Reception Centerpieces and Favors

Centerpieces can be creative too. Apart from a traditional floral arrangement, you can adorn each table with a "wedding style" beach pail. Fill it up with a rolled up beach towel in your coordinating color. Add a bottle of spring water and make a personalized label for it on your computer. Drop in a bottle of sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses. Guests will love to take this home, and it will be a great conversation piece. Looking for something easier, how about an Aloe Vera plant? It's the best sunburn remedy around. Top off the soil with some beach sand, wrap the pot from the bottom up with material or decorative paper, tie a ribbon around it, and you're done. If you want a traditional floral piece, add a touch of blue food coloring to the water. Wedding favors? Try a sand dollar or shell ornament. Use a glitter glue pen to decorate your shell by accenting its natural characteristics. Add pearls or beads, and glue a looped piece of ribbon to the back of the shell so it can be hung on a doorknob or Christmas tree. Another idea is to buy candles - the ones that are about three inches high by three inches wide. Roll them in glue, then roll them in the sand. These are so easy to make, and they are beautiful. Glue on some shells if you want.

Entertainment

Add a little pizzazz to your wedding party by adorning the groomsmen with "cool" sunglasses and the bridesmaid with beautiful sun hats and sarongs. Set up a Tiki Bar. Have a volleyball game set up and have beach balls for the kids. If you can, arrange to have a lifeguard stand nearby and stand a couple of surf boards up in the sand. These will serve as props for great pictures.

Seaside Wedding Food and Drinks

Your menu can be whatever you want it to be, but do add some touches from the sea to keep your theme flowing. Include shrimp, stuffed clams, and fried calamari with your hors d'ourves. If serving a pasta dish, use the shell shaped pasta or have stuffed shells. Your main course should include at least one seafood choice; lobster tails, sea bass, etc.All drinks can be served with a little paper umbrella in them. Order a "Tequila Sunrise". Want a unique cake? Locate a bakery that specializes in special order cakes and have them make you a sand castle.

Seaside Theme Music Ideas

Whether you have a band, a DJ, or a boom box, make sure to include at least some beach style music. Anything by the Beach Boys, "Summer Wind" by Frank Sinatra, "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters, "Summer Nights" from Grease. And sure to be a favorite, "Beach Baby" by First Class.!!! That song will surely stir up a lot of nostalgia. Add some diversity with some steel drum selections or a little bit of reggae.

Safety Tips

An important investment that's well worth the money … hire your own lifeguard. Attach a color-coordinated bracelet around the wrists of your younger guests and relax knowing that they are being supervised at all times when down in the surf. It will provide your guests with extra peace of mind as well, and they will really appreciate it.

Remember that when you choose a theme wedding, accentuate the theme! Your effort will be noticed and will be remembered long after your wedding day. Your guests will leave with something to talk about. And you, the bride and groom will have created a beach wedding that you will treasure for the rest of your lives. Memories so unique and special; memories which reflect the celebration of your beautiful shared love.

Part IV: My Wedding Reception By The Beach


It was almost 7pm already when we finished our Photo Shoots, very good timing to have the party started but never all our guests was feeling hungry as they were served with canapes and cocktails while we were having our photo shoots, right after my husband and I went straight to our room to change our clothes. He just took off his top and left the white long shirts on, while I totally had a new look for the whole evening.

It was a very lovely evening though! When I first came down to see what it was like, oh my God - beautiful arrangements of small plates with desserts, and the resort staffs welcomed us with cocktails to start. However, some of our guests were already seated waiting for us and wondering what was going to happen next aside from eating right in front of the sea. Nice romantic music were playing, we heard some birds singing and the sea waves splashing by the shore. It was on it's low tide at that moment, so we had all the space for us, for that event! AMAZING!!

While I was on my way to stand next to my husband, I heard people started shouting and clapping their hands, while there were drums playing and ladies singing. When I turned my head towards their direction, I realized it was the "Sega Dancers" - the local entertainers, which they normally offer to wedding receptions. We didn't know what it was, we just booked it for the night, at least to give entertainment to our guests. Here they are, guys were playing their improvised instruments, while the ladies were dancing.



They were gorgeous!, and after playing a few minutes they all stopped and taking us to dance with them! That was funny really and look at us dancing!



Haayyy, we all a bit tired when they finished, and it lasted for about 1 and half hours!! Dinner were served, we had a barbeque as weel, loads of choices to eat plus desserts, etc..




While we were eating, there were "Trio" came to give us romantic love songs. Look at my father, he stood up to entertain us too..lol, and funny really because most of us were dancing while they were singing.




Everybody really enjoyed, and it was absolutely such a fantastic experience. An experience that never be forgotten by everyone who witnessed and experienced themselves. IT WAS ONE OF A KIND... In fact, we finished at almost 1'oclock the following morning! We had some rain showers too, a blessings for a new beginning.
