MIM(E) – Sand Dollar Seating Cards

I'm a sucker for seating cards (in case you haven't noticed). They are a small detail that can make a big impact without crushing the budget. In my opinion, what makes a wedding truly memorable isn't how much the flower budget was or if the dinner was nine-courses or if Shakira performed the first dance (well, OK, that would be a highlight). It's the little touches that make folks go 'hmm, that's cool'.

Sand dollars
Case in point – for an elegant beach wedding, we had the wonderful Laura Hooper write on real sand dollars, which we then placed in a 'sand box'. It was an unexpected touch that had guests talking.

  1. I’m doing sand dollars too, what did you use to write on the sand dollars? That would be great info – the writing is beautiful, what a wonderful idea!

  2. They were a few inches across (like 5 I think?). I have another wedding this weekend and we’re tying the name cards with a ribbon through the little slit on the sand dollar, so that’s another option.
