The Perfect Destination or Beach Wedding Invitation?

Yes, a wedding invitation in the form of a message in a bottle is the latest trend to hit wedding planning. Mysterious, fun, and very unique... a message in a bottle wedding invitation really sets the tone for a whimsical destination or simply beach or just beach-themed wedding.

.. But not Only

We love this idea because it takes a very traditional aspect of a wedding and flips it into one of intrigue and adventure. It creates a "moment" long before the wedding even takes place. From destination weddings to formal affairs, couples can engage their guests and leave them with the anticipation of what excitement is yet to come...
