Beautiful Marine Life Wedding Invitations Featuring Octopus, Cuttlefish and Squid

Beautiful Marine Life Wedding Invitations Featuring Octopus from Concertina Press
If you love the ocean as much as I do, you probably love all the interesting creatures that live below the waves. Yes there are the beautiful Sea Turtles and Seahorses but I'm talking about the more unusual ones - you know, the Octopus, Cuttlefish and Squid! The Cephalopods! 

These clever creatures can live at great depths or even walk on land, in the case of terrestrial octopus. Many of them have camouflage skin and the many colors and patterns they come in make them a beautiful addition to your under the sea wedding invitations!

You can find all of these for sale on my nautical wedding invitation site, Concertina Press - feel free to contact me with any questions, or check out the pricing and samples available below:

Shark Wedding Invitations for your Under the Sea Wedding

Shark Wedding Invitations from Concertina Press are perfect for aquarium weddings
Are you having an under the sea themed wedding? These shark wedding invitations are the perfect way to let your guests know about your unforgettable event! They feature a blue shark, orange sea anemones and red coral - all of the beautifully vibrant colors you expect to see at the aquarium. Each set includes an invitation, RSVP card and optional additional information card with matching envelopes.

These shark invitations are a great fit for scuba diving fanatics or marine biologists, too! I used to work at the scientific library at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA which is where I first became acquainted with these beautiful antique illustrations that I use to create my one of a kind nautical wedding invitations for Concertina Press.

Nautical Compass Wedding Programs

Nautical Compass Wedding Programs from Concertina Press
These beautiful nautical compass wedding programs go perfectly with my popular Navy Compass Wedding Invitations. I designed them from an antique wood carving of a nautical compass rose that sailors would use when navigating the sea.

Contact me if you are interested in these pretty programs for your nautical wedding and have questions, or you can order them straight from my site.

I love all the extreme detail of each point on the compass, as well as the nautical abbreviations for referring to the wind speed and direction. For example "S.S.W." means "South by South West" (and I bet you thought that was just a music festival in Austin!).
These have a flexible design and I can change the wording to accommodate your ceremony at no additional cost.

Cape Cod Town Table Numbers for Wedding, Rehearsal Dinner or Party

Cape Cod Town Name Table Number from Concertina Press
 If you're having your wedding on Cape Cod, a really cute alternative to regular table numbers is to name each table after a town on the Cape. I designed these two styles of Cape Cod table numbers to match my classic Cape Cod Wedding Invitation - but they would be great for rehearsal dinners or parties with seated dinners. Each one has a heart over the town so that your diners can learn a little bit about Cape geography. I also have matching Cape Cod place cards too! The table cards are professionally printed on heavy lightly textured card stock and I hand-layer them to be double-thickness, and they are double sided, so they're visible from both sides.

Cape Cod Guest Book Alternative with Map - Now in Bigger Sizes!

Alternative Cape Cod Guest Book Poster from Concertina Press
I've been thrilled at the response I'm getting on my Cape Cod Alternative Guest Book Poster! The thing I love about it is that it's so nice to walk by a piece of beautiful framed art in your house and look at all the loving messages written by your friends and family. If you're having a bad day, how could it not get better after reading the sweet messages left by grandma, or your best friend. Plus, you can customize it with a little heart over the town where you're getting married! These posters make a great Cape Cod wedding gift for couples getting, too.

When I first unveiled the design I only offered an 11"x14" size, but in response to requests from couples getting married all over the cape I now offer larger sizes of 16"x20" and 18"x24". You can get a relative sense of the size in this mockup below:
Cape Cod Alternative Guestbook Sizes
Here's where you can find it in my shop: Cape Cod Alternative Guest Book Poster

I have these recommendations for what size to order:

11x14 - up to 100 guests
16x20 - 100-200 guests
18x24 - 200-300 guests (contact me for larger sizes)

Not all of your guests will sign the picture (usually only one member of a couple or family will, for instance) so the best thing might be to pick the size that will look best in your house, if you're having a hard time choosing between two sizes.

I used to work as a Custom Framer, and so as a result I made sure to pick common poster frame sizes so you can have some options when it comes to framing (custom framing isn't cheap! framing a poster this size would cost $XXX) and you can hopefully find an off-the shelf frame that will look great. Here are some nice ones I found on Amazon, if you don't live near a craft store that carries larger frames:

Another great way to upgrade your finished poster is to buy a higher-quality sheet of glass (I actually recommend Acrylic for 16"x20" and larger, which looks like glass but won't shatter if you drop it) for $30-$50 at your local frame shop (they'll probably try to talk you into custom framing...) or online. Look for glass or acrylic that "blocks UV rays".
