Wedding things

1. Cape coasters—great for gifts or centerpieces

Looking for a gift that’s fun, creative, and says “Cape Cod?” These unique ceramic coasters ($5.25 each) may do the trick. Created by Paint the Town, Inc., the 4- by 4-inch, cork-based coasters are customized with the name of a different Cape Cod town—or “Cape Cod” itself—in a sandy script. The coasters also feature the location’s latitude and longitude points, which can serve as a reminder of where all the fun was had. Available at Splash Stationers, 126 Route 6A, in Sandwich. For more information, call 774-413-8566, or visit

2. Send a thank-you and support a great cause!

These notecards from Smudge Ink ($14.25 for 10 cards and envelopes) are a colorful way to send wedding thank-you’s, while supporting a great local cause. Based in Charlestown, Smudge Ink is a company that designs custom invitations, announcements, and stationery. The company selects different organizations to support, and a portion of the sales of these notecards benefits We Can, a Harwichport non-profit that helps Cape Cod women who are going through challenging life transitions. The cards feature vibrant flowers—or other images—and are blank inside. For more information, visit

3. Wear this jacket to the reception—or on the ferry!

Deciding between donning formal or casual attire to a wedding on the beach or a rehearsal dinner, try a TRIMDIN reversible accessory jacket ($189) in one of five styles. Designed, cut, and sewn in the USA, the jackets are made of chenille and other lightweight fabrics, which make them great for any summer occasion. The Braintree-company’s name, TRIMDIN, addresses the coats’ other main feature: the jackets are “trimmed in” by a black lining, which completes the flattering and sophisticated look. The jackets come in several colors including pink, yellow, and light green, and are sold at Tale of the Cod in Chatham and Murray’s Toggery Shop in downtown Nantucket. For more information, visit
