Beach Wedding Centerpieces are really easy to do and don’t have to cost very much. It lends itself to more casual wedding, whether your beach wedding theme is on the beach or far away. Here are some of my favorite wedding centerpiece ideas:
- Lanterns of varying heights in the center of the table. You can find these at Craft stores or online. Have candles inside each one for an evening wedding, and for a personal touch, tie a photo of the bride and groom can be tied to each handle with ribbon, raffia or thin nautical rope.
Wide, shallow bowls with beach glass, shells or sand at the bottom and filled with water and floating candles is a elegant beach wedding centerpiece and very simple to do. Gardenias or jasmine floating on top adds a soft touch.
For a more nautical wedding centerpiece, get a boat or lighthouse at your local hobby or craft store. (they can be found very cheap unpainted, and then you paint them yourself). Create the centerpiece by arranging sand, shells and beach glass on a plate or mirror. Place the small craft boat or lighthouse in the center, each one could also have the table numbers on them to make it easy for guests to find their table in a creative way.
Large and small clear glass vases filled with shells and a candle on top. Some of the smaller vases filled with your wedding flowers is a softer and romantic look, as some beach wedding centerpieces can be too plain or harsh without flowers included.
Fun beach wedding centerpieces can be colored, metal sand pails. Use candles and fun items you’d see on the beach like shovels, balls and shells. Other fun wedding centerpieces for the beach would be to get real fish for each table. The bowls can even have fish friendly plants on top. Be sure to use this idea responsibly by giving the fish as gifts to one guest per table or friends.
It really is fun to have a beach theme wedding. Beach wedding centerpieces are the keys to bringing your theme together at your reception. It is a cheap wedding idea yet also can be elegant and personalized to your taste and the formality of your wedding.
