Ok, I'm new here and just by reading post upon post - I've gotten lots of great ideas to mull over.


For now though, I'm really wanting to add a witty one-liner beachy quote to my STD's. I'm ordering the large magnets (the ones with the palm tree on the right, the ocean and beach in the forefront) from vistaprint because I've always had good luck with them for business cards, etc., not to mention they are truly affordable!


This is what I have on my STD so far:


It's A Shore Thing -

Please Save The Date!!

So I wanted to plug in that one liner where the asterisk is, but I'm not having any luck finding anything that conveys a fun and casual event. Maybe I shouldn't use the "It's A Shore Thing," but I thought it was really cute...My 17year old thinks it's corny, but also said it's totally me, um thanks kiddo - gotta love teenagers!


At any rate, I think I've been looking too hard and trying to come up with something so hard that I'm drawing a blank. I figured I'd turn to the experts!:)


Any help would be greatly appreciated - have a great night all!

I struggled a bit in conveying our casual/fun mood, too.


Ultimately, I addressed it via a dress code suggestion: Shoes optional, hawaiian prints encouraged.


That doesn't quite work in your case, but would something about packing bags work? Like: pack your party shoes, beach attire and best wishes?


I'm rambling. I clearly need more coffee.

Becks - I like your dress code wording - AWESOME!:) It's going in my notes for the invites and it does give me another direction to think about...Thank you!


Danielle - She's beginning to like it and is now trying to help with this wording issue. At least she's on board (no pun intended here - really) and I have another brain working on it!


Thanks for your help - it's greatly appreciated!

also, what about something like:


"must wave your invitation, but please send us a postcard" ?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
