In Lafayette, wedding invitations come in many different styles and colors with numerous categories to choose from. Your invitations should give guests an idea of what to look forward to. Palm Trees, tropical fish, and sand are all things synonymous with the Caribbean and a "destination" wedding invitation is one that properly depicts these symbols.
The numerous options one has when designing their wedding invitations are close to infinate when you consider all the different colors, shapes, and textures of the cards. A destination wedding invitation will typically show images of fish traveling in groups or a beautiful ocean horizon.

For example there is a type of paper with pieces of sand embedded into it that add a characteristic seldom seen other than at the beach.
