Beach Wedding Ideas: From A Sunny Ceremony To A Starfish Wedding Cake
We put some of our favorite beach wedding decor ideas together and they include lots of decor inspiration for the DIY bride and groom.
Beach Wedding Ceremony
At this pretty beach wedding ceremony, simple stools for wedding guests flank the wedding ceremony aisle decorated with coral fabric and colorful seashells.
At this Montauk, NY, wedding, garlands with clustered marigolds create a pretty ceremony backdrop, while tall leafy grasses in glass vases evoke the grass often found in dunes.
Don’t forget about the groom and the groomsmen. Leave it to Martha to find these two genius ideas for a beach wedding boutonniere: a cool Center Cut Fox Shell, and a starfish with a bit of grass.
Beach Wedding Centerpieces
We love a non-floral wedding centerpiece. Our Trapez Vases are part of this beach wedding tablescape with seashell terrarium centerpieces from Martha Stewart Weddings: “For an on-theme display, curate still lives of shells and coral on sand placed inside glass fishbowls and vases.”
Add other tropical and nautical decor elements to your beach wedding tablescapes like this raffia palm tree and coordinating raffia place mats. Instead of flowers, fill raffia baskets with local or tropical fruits.
Have your wedding guests find their way to their seats with wedding escort cards displayed on a bed of white mixed seashells; gilded stones, coral, and capiz shells add to this escort card table. Or, create a clever seating-card-in-a-bottle with sand in a glass bowl. (both from Martha Stewart Weddings)
Put the newlyweds in the ‘hot seat’ at the wedding reception: decorate their chairs with our starfish garland or a mix of colorful capiz shell garlands.
Beach Wedding Cake
Sea blue and green gum paste starfish cascade down this pretty wedding cake that is perfect for a beach wedding.
