These Martha's Vineyard Invitations are Perfect for your Island Wedding

Martha's Vineyard Wedding Invitations from Concertina Press - with map and free website card
When you think of Martha's Vineyard - what comes to mind? Warm summer ocean breezes? Gentle rolling hills and green fields surrounded by antique walls? Gorgeous red clay cliffs topped by the Aquinnah Lighthouse? Beautiful gingerbread-style houses in Oak Bluffs? Whatever your thoughts and memories are of the Vineyard, you want to share them with your guests at your wedding on Martha's Vineyard. What better way to set the tone than with these Martha's Vineyard Map wedding invites.

I created these invitations using a 100 year old driving map of the Island. Can you imagine driving around the scenic country roads back in the day? It's not too hard, given that Martha's Vineyard has done an amazing job of preserving the historic feel of the Island.

Since 2010 I've been creating nautical wedding invitations for New England weddings - starting when I lived in Woods Hole on Cape Cod, and even continuing now that I've moved South to sunny Florida!

If you're planning a wedding on Martha's Vineyard I invite you to take a look - you're sure to find something that's the perfect fit!

Ruth at Concertina Press was an incredible find. I found her work to be original, beautiful and of place. Having grown up on Martha's Vineyard and getting married there, I felt it was important to work with someone who had an authentic connection to the sea. Ruth was also incredible to work with: timely, professional, helpful, and invested. Ruth made me feel like my wedding was #1. She did an incredible job with our wedding invitations and wedding stationary for place cards, programs, etc. Out of the 70+ vendors I researched, she was the best. - Jamie & Ian

Looking for Yacht Club wedding invitations? Look no further than these Sailboat and Waves invitations!

Yacht Club Wedding Invitations for a Nautical Ceremony by Concertina Press
You know what I love about sailing? The quiet! When you're out on the water and all you can hear is the creak of the lines, the wind in the sails and the whoosh (splash?) of the waves...that's what inspired me to make these Yacht Club Wedding Invitations.

Each set comes with a double sided 5"x7" wedding invitation printed on luxury textured card stock, with your wording in a classic and traditional style on the front topped with a beautiful sailboat motif, and then on the back as a beautiful surprise there's a pretty royal and navy blue waves design. The 3.5"x5" RSVP features a regatta, or group of sailboats, and the free 2.5"x3.5"website card has another sailboat (or you can request an anchor or other design). I also have an optional larger insert card available where you can list weekend events or your rehearsal dinner.

I love sailing and also designing wedding invitations, so I'm happy to bring together two things I love! Here's a picture of me sailing on the Indian River in Florida:
So without further ado, here are some more photos of my new pretty Sailboat and Waves wedding invitation set that is perfect for your wedding at a yacht club or on a boat. These nautical wedding invitations are also great for a beach wedding or a wedding on Cape Cod. Also it's no coincidence that these nautical wedding invites match my Cape Cod save the dates in color and font! I wanted to create a classic looking set that matched that would be perfect for a wedding on the Cape (which was where I was married, too!).

Pretty Blue Crab Wedding Invitations Set the Tone for Your Summer Wedding by the Seashore

Blue Crab Wedding Invitations from Concertina Press
I designed these blue crab wedding invitations while thinking about warm summer days on Cape Cod, swimming along the inlets and dodging little blue crabs who lived in the reeds on the edge of the water. Blue crabs make me think of summertime, sunshine and salt air, and these Blue Crab Wedding Invites would be perfect for your beach wedding.

Each invite set comes with an invitation (you can customize the wording on this easily), an RSVP card and a website insert. Larger insert cards are also available if you want to share weekend event itineraries with your guests, or if you want to include accommodation information. Everything is tied together beautifully with aqua envelopes, and I can even address them for you!

"Ruth was absolutely fantastic to work with and I couldn't be happier with our invitations!! She combined a couple different designs for me and they turned out so so so beautifully! She was so great to work with-- responsive, knowledgeable, professional and so sweet and patient even when I was flakey! But the most important thing is how beautifully the invitations turned out-- the paper is beautiful and Ruth has such an eye for detail. Honestly, I knew that the invitations would be really pretty, but when the box came in the mail (before I expected it!), I was completely blown away. I keep sneaking back to the box to look at them! I can't wait to send them to my friends and family! - J&D"

Cape Cod Save the Dates in Sage Green and Blush Pink

Cape Cod Save the Dates Blush Pink and Sage Green by Concertina Press
I created these Cape Cod Save the Dates in a lovely new color combination for a customer whose wedding colors were sage green and blush pink. They came out beautifully and have a lovely rustic, delicate and romantic look. The envelopes have a slight shimmer to them adding an extra touch of elegance.

Typically these save the dates are available in navy blue but if you're interested in customizing them to fit your color scheme, don't hesitate to contact me

I designed these save the dates using a digitally restored antique map of Cape Cod, where I lived for 11 years before  moving down to Florida to be closer to family.They are printed on a thick lightly textured card stock similar to watercolor paper. These save the dates can be customized with a tiny heart over the town you're getting married in on the Cape, and you can add a photo of yourselves to the back, too!

You can also purchase samples of the Navy blue version and see pricing online here:

Cape Cod Wedding Invitations for a Wedding at Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster

Cape Cod Wedding Invitation from Concertina Press
I designed these Cape Cod Wedding Invitations to be beautiful, timeless, and classic, in a navy blue and white color scheme (other colors also available). Not everyone knows what Cape Cod looks like though, so I digitally restored a beautiful 125 year old antique map of the iconic arm-shaped peninsula  and you can put a little heart over the town where you're getting married. This is especially helpful to your guests who might not realize that "Cape Cod" isn't just a town, but is an entire county with many small towns.

These Cape Cod Wedding invitations feature an antique map of the Cape, an optional guest information card (great if you're having  a weekend of events like Friday welcome party and Sunday Brunch) and a very flexible RSVP card. I can accommodate all kinds of RSVP customizations including lines for each attendee, a line for "number of guests", rehearsal dinner RSVPs or anything else. The wording pictured above is fun nautical wording but you can also stick with the more traditional "accepts with pleasure" or "declines with regret".
Nobska Lighthouse Falmouth MA
Cape Cod is a beautiful place to be married, and I would know because I was married in Falmouth! My husband and I were married on 7-7-7 and enjoyed a beautiful beachside ceremony at The Knob. We lived on the Cape year round for 7 years - now we live in Florida near my parents, but we love to go back to the Cape to visit! I also love working with couples getting married on Cape Cod because it  is so close to my heart and brings back so many good memories.
The Knob Falmouth MA
This little outcropping of rock called "The Knob" is a hidden gem in Falmouth - a lovely place to walk your dog or take a little hike out to see the sunset.

These Pretty Sea Creature Blank Cards Double as Nautical Decor

Orange Octopus Gift blank greeting card from Concertina Press

When I am creating my nautical wedding invitation sets using restored antique illustrations I often come across beautiful images that I think would look great framed. I turned the sea creatures you see here into pretty blank greeting cards that you can frame or send to a friend. They would make beautiful wall art! I suggest getting a set of three - put the frames stacked vertically or horizontally and make your own sea creature collection. These aquatic notecards would also make a great gift for a SCUBA diver or fisherman.

Martha's Vineyard Save the Dates with Map and Cute Tiny Heart

Martha's Vineyard Save the Dates from Concertina Press
Oh the Vineyard! What a beautiful place to be married. I remember when I lived in Woods Hole, just across Vineyard Sound, we'd take the ferry deep in the winter when it got dark at 4 o'clock and visit Offshore Ale in Oak Bluffs and enjoy oysters and stout. In the fall my friends and I would go over with our bikes and ride the coast, admiring the beautiful houses and stopping for coffees at Mocha Motts. I can smell that soft salty breeze right now! I live in Florida now to be closer to my folks, but I still love to go up North and visit.

I created these Martha's Vineyard save the dates from a beautiful 100-year-old touring map of the Island. The navy blue map has the names of all of the towns, and you can move the heart over the town where you're getting married at no extra charge. You can also upgrade to double-sided printing and feature a beautiful photo of you on the back, or add addressing in a matching font. (Photo credit: Stacey Hedman)

I would love to work with you to create gorgeous save the dates for your wedding on Martha's Vineyard - for more information and pricing on these save the dates you can visit:

You can also contact me! I'm happy to work with you to change the color to match your wedding, at no additional cost.
