I’m having a beach themed wedding, color is aqua (turquoise), I’m trying to incorporate the beach to every aspect of the wedding, we are using lots of shells! My FH is building a section of boardwalk for our outside ceremony. The tables are not going to be numbered, they are going to be names of NJ seashore towns (we are from NJ, and met at Ocean City.)
Who has had a beach themed wedding, and do you have any suggestions? Like place cards…I’m totally stressing over. I saw the shells used for the card holder, but I’m looking for something alittle more unique. I also heard of a couple who had water bottles, don’t know if I am a fan of that idea.

What about some mini clear bottles with each guests names on, in or tied to the bottle. You could then use the bottle’s as a way of saying “thank you” by putting a thank you note (a message in a bottle) inside the bottle.
You could also use the bottle to fill it with candy or something decorative as a “wedding favor”.

go to mybeachfavors.com and they have sooo many ideas for guest favors and some of them also double as place cards. I’m using little frames with shells on them 🙂
For my centerpieces I’m having a glass plate with some sand spread over it with a few shells and then three glass vases with pebbles in the bottom, a submerged orchid and a floating candle on top.
Our cake is a simple white three tiered cake with turquoise ribbon seperating the tiers and a few starfish and shells on it.

My daughter’s is at the beach and her colors being used are turquoise,ivory and silver.
Place cards are ivory beach chairs with umbrellas attached and are being set up in a tray full of sand.
Table numbers are sand cast shells on stands and the actual table number will be glued to the centers (after I paint the numbers turquoise).
Just finished wrapping her shower favors (bamboo coasters) in handmade beige paper with tiny starfish on the Thank You cards.
Even tho her wedding is at the beach,we’re only using a few beachy touches.

I loved this DIY idea about river rocks from the DIY thread, curtousy of justmarried ( river rocks ). I know you said you wanted something more unique than sea shell place card holders, but maybe you could write the names of couples on the shells directing them to their tables?

I’m so glad I ran across this. I just saw a beach theme centerpiece yesterday and though “How pretty”. I couldn’t find that exact picture again, but I found something similar The first picture I saw actually used orchids (much more tropical in my opinion)

We’re also doing a beach theme but staying away from tropical. Our colors are navy, lt. blue and tan with ivory (neutral) and silver (accents). I incorporated starfish on candles and for favors, I was inspored by Mrs. Corn and did glass Christmas balls filled with sand from the beach at which we will hold our reception. I really like the idea of incorporating sand, flowers, candle light and other organic elements into a beach wedding.
Our escort cards are not really beachy, we’re just planning on using blue cards and hanging them on ribbon. Maybe I’ll stamp a starfish or something on as a way to determine who is eating what but that would be a addition for practicality.
