If your wedding will be on the beach, but your reception will be indoors, you can still carry a beautiful beach theme. This is also great for brides who don’t live near the beach (or don’t want to do a destination wedding) but still want a beach-y ceremony and reception. Here are 7 great ideas to bring the beach to an indoor reception.
1. Starfish Decorations
Find them at your local craft store, attach ribbons or raffia, and hang on the backs of your chairs for a beautiful beach feel.
2. Sand and Candles
Fill containers with sand and place tea light candles inside for a beautiful way to decorate your tabletops.
3. Seashell Wedding Favors
Use beautiful seashell wedding favors that work as place card holders.
4. Message in a Bottle
Use small bottles and place messages in the inside! This is a great thing to have at each setting to thank guests for coming.
5. Starfish Napkin Ring
You can create a napkin ring from virtually anything by gluing a decoration onto ribbon that will be tied around the napkin. Starfish, seashells and other fun items work well for a beach-style wedding.
6. Bouquet Wrapped in Rope
This is a very beautiful beach-themed idea for your bouquet. Have rope wrapped around the stems of the flowers and attach decorations like seashells.
7. Beautiful Blue Waters
You can create pretty blue waters for candleholders by using food coloring in the water. This is perfect if you plan to use blue as one of your wedding colors.
