    From that, I would not guess that it’s a beach wedding.  The invitations are nice, but if you’re trying to get across a feel of your wedding, these fall short. 

    For what it’s worth, though, you can do whatever you want!  I’m just pointing out that invitations generally explain the circumstances of the event so people would know how to dress.  Looking at those invitations, I’d probably wear a cocktail dress and be way overdressed for a beach wedding!

    OP, it definitely doesn’t portray a ‘beachy’ feel, but if it’s what you and your Fiance want, go for it.

    Would Fiance compromise and make red an accent color instead of the main color? Or add in other colors like a tan, oranges, etc – sort of a sunset feel?

    I would have LOL’d if Fiance picked colors based on a sport team, but he’s not a big sports guy.

    The first few pictures could be a beach wedding (something very sleek, modern) but the last one is definitely not.  Could you keep the black and white on the invites and then do a red-orange envelope or envelope liner?  Something like this, but with sunset colors:

     

    If you could do something modern like this on the beach, I think it could work:

    Oh, and while the black on black in your photos looks really cool, old people will have a lot of trouble reading that.  Just something to remember if you have older folks in your guest list.  Wink

    I think that’s a great compromise!  “Miami” is a good way to think of things- glam and modern but still beachy.
