Sample messages & wording ideas
    We normally print the message on parchment paper for that rustic Caribbean treasure-map look. But we can print on other paper stock on request. Just ask!
    Here are some examples of messages we've designed and printed for clients, as well as wording ideas you may want to borrow from. We don't set any fixed limit how many lines or characters you can use in your message. Just so we can make it fit on 5.5 by 8.5 inch paper (half of a standard letter-size sheet) we can print it for you! It's also no problem to incorporate a graphic into your message. Choose our standard "Palm Tree" design or submit your own graphic or photo.
    Optional response card is printed on stiff parchment card stock and rolled with the message scroll. Flattened out, it mails as a postcard. Fonts, paper stocks and ink colors can all be coordinated so response card matches the message.
    Click on samples to see larger version.
The only limit is your imagination when it comes to writing and designing your invitation. 5.5 by 8.5 inch paper rolls into a scroll to fit into the bottle.

Dear God,
We felt so blessed when you

We thank you for keeping us together
when the Atlantic Ocean separated us.
We pray that you will continue to
show us the way to sustain our bond
now that we are ONE!
Your children,
Nicole & Derrick

Please save the date and plan to join us for our wedding
at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 7, 2010
in Pacific Grove, California, located along
the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.

We realize that asking our family and friends
to travel to California poses some challenges,
but we are hoping that by giving everyone plenty
of notice, it will be easier to plan a wonderful
and romantic vacation around our wedding.

Formal invitations will follow later in the year.
In the meantime, please see our wedding day web
page at for helpful travel,
accommodation and Bay Area attraction information.
Our website will also contain information about the
weekend festivities we are planning for our guests.

If there are any further details that you need or
any questions that we can answer, please let us know.
The Monterey/Carmel area is a top vacation destination,
so we encourage you to book your transportation
and accommodations as soon as possible.

We hope to see each of you next September and look
forward to sharing an enjoyable and relaxing
weekend celebration together.

With love, Bethani and Jeff
