Aqua blue waves, custom wine labels to use for a wedding. These rectangular labels are easy to customize because they are made with example text that is a template. What that means, if you are unfamiliar with using templates, is that the wording you see on this label is the place holder for you own personal text.
On the product page – when you click on this label – there are spaces where you will delete the text you see, and add your own. The label will appear sideways – sorry about that, but I can’t change it. The message (at the top) can stay the same, if you like it, but to make it more personal you may want to say something else. The names, wedding date and wine type will be printed at the bottom. Add your new (for the Bride) last name initial to the center and you are ready to order. (This label is 4.5 x 2.7 inches and we offer smaller labels too.)
Because it’s difficult to know exactly what everyone may be looking for, I try to make every part of the label easy to change. In this case the background can be removed or replaced with one of your own images, or another color. If the background is removed, the white text will disappear against the white background, so I’ve made a quick tutorial (below) to show you how to change the text color.
The text can be changed, and the background removed, right on the product page, but to change the text color you will need to click the orange “CUSTOMIZE IT” Button.
FIRST: Find each line of text and change the color one line at a time.
NEXT: Using the drop-down menu, choose any color shown on the color chart which will appear. OR if you have a hex code, add it in the little box at the bottom.
If you don’t like to do this sort of thing yourself, contact us for help. We always reply promptly and can have your labels ready to order right away.

The flower choices for a tropical wedding may be more expensive than most. If your wedding will take place in the tropics, it may be easier, and cheaper, to purchase exotic flowers at the destination.
The bird-of-paradise or colorful little plumeria flowers (also known as frangipani) you’d like to have in your bouquet or as decor may be more affordable on location, but I honestly don’t know. Usually locally grown, or in season flowers will be the most affordable to order for weddings.
I do know that you can have these flowers on your wedding stationery at an affordable price!
I’ve added a ♥ Floral Wedding Invitations page here at this blog to direct couples to the types of tropical flower stationery we currently offer.
What we don’t yet have is a good orchid design, but I am on the lookout for a beautiful orchid image to use as inspiration.

Create a cute set of hors d’oeuvre flags to use at a beach themed wedding shower by easily attaching them to toothpicks to be used in finger foods to decorate.
The Zazzle blog has just come out with their first “how to” post and it couldn’t be easier to decorate with unique stickers from our Sandpiper Wedding store. In the DIY Wedding Series you will find the info with great pictures to show you exactly how to use stickers. They use square ones like the one I have linked here, but you could choose any of the shapes to do the same thing.
First find stickers for a bridal shower or wedding shower with the theme of your choice. (We can make them especially for you if you can’t find what you need.) Add custom text, like in the example here, and then make your little flags. Of course stickers can be used in other ways, like decorating the invitation envelopes or shower prizes / gift bags.
As always, each design can be customized by you! Or ask us for help- using the link on any product page – or the contact area here – and we will respond promptly.
I came across this idea for planning a wedding seating arrangement on Pinterest. Using page markers in various colors to distinguish between family members, friends, co-workers and other groupings of people is a great idea!
Draw out the circles representing the number of tables you’ll be using at the reception and plan easily by moving the marked papers around.
You could do this before the invitations are sent and give each guest a table number card inside the invitation, or do it once all guests have replied.
Once you know exactly who will be attending, and which meal they have chosen you can fill up the tables accordingly. Then the menu selection information can be given to your caterer or chef.
