@TeeBee25:  i agree with you!! i dont have any photos, though. im getting married on the beach in April but i dont like the typical beach theme. i am sticking with light pastels and soft touches (pearls, light decor). I may add sand to some things but that’s really it. I like the “less is more” when doing a beach wedding because the view beats everything IMO!

Yep, that sounds like exactly what I had in mind! We even had driftwood escort cards, haha. I hadn’t ever seen those before. Here’s a few pics from our wedding. We made almost everything ourselves.

@terpalum10:  I love the last photo of you two!  The rope knots are a really unique touch.

 

 

@TeeBee25:  It sounds like you’re looking for a more natural feel for the decor?  Driftwood and succulents would be look good as centerpieces, or you could use cloche jars with succulents and sand.  Natural colored burlap for tablerunners would look nice.  A driftwood arch for the ceremony?  Just a little inspiration for you 🙂

@CatyLady:  Thank you! It was delicious.

 

@Goofball:  Thanks! Ooh I LOVE that arch. So pretty!

 

@TeeBee25:  Thanks! We got ours on clearance from One Kings Lane – it was originally supposed to be vase filler I think.

@TeeBee25:  Do you live near a lake or the ocean where you can collect it from?  Here you can find it on the shores of the lake.  Maybe make your own like this blogger did?   http://www.craftiments.com/2012/06/diy-driftwood-tutorial.html

You could also try posting a wanted ad on your local Freecycle.org board or put the word out to everybody you know.  Never know if someone has a stash they’d be willing to donate to the cause or is going on vacation to a beach location and would bring you back a couple of pieces!  I asked people I knew to buy any milk glass they came across for less than 50 cents at garage sales/thrift stores.  A lot of people were excited to be able to help us out with finding things for the wedding (and most refused to let us reimburse them because it was only $1 or $2).

This is exactly the vibe we are going for as well, neutrals with some seaside touches. Here are my inspiration pictures:

@TeeBee25:  Here are a few I think are pretty that are beachy but no so in your face type beachy (if that makes sense)

I love this mix of succulents with the driftwood
