Your wedding sounds really pretty. I love your colors and the lemondade idea. Could you put a pink stamp of the sand dollar on the right side of the invitation, or on the right on the kahki pocket fold, or maybe to seal the pocket fold?

I think it looks great.

have you considered switching the color scheme?

 i am sure you are using the pink as more of an accent to the khaki, but why not have pink invite with the tan or natural colored text?

 you keep the simpleness of your design while adding a significant "wow" factor.

i think embossing would be cool too, just time consuming, but if you’ve got the time, then have at it!

I like the idea of incorporating the sand dollar in your invitations.  Have you considered using a sand dollar charm, perhaps tied with a ribbon or raffia to the invitation?

I recommend this seller on eBay; I’ve gotten brass charms for favors from her – they’re cute for throwaway items and a bargain:

I think the colors and invitation look really pretty. To jazz it up, you might try changing the color of the font – you could have the names in pink, for example, to match. You could also add a monogram or design (ie, sand dollar) to the top, above all the text. And a ribbon tied around the whole thing or in one of the folds. I just ordered my invites from http://www.stephita.com. Take a look at their website for more ideas. Hope that helps!

Maybe you could take your stamp of the sand dollar, stamp it on hot pink paper, cut it out, and then use it as a charm.  You could tie it with hemp, to keep the coastal, beachy feel.

Alternatively, did you say you could make the stamp an embosser?  You could do the same effect with that.
