Sea in a Bowl
The sand, the sea, and all its creatures can give you one of the easiest centerpiece ideas to use for your destination beach wedding.

Obviously, you can make these, but you might find it more helpful to have them created for you professionally. Not only will the professionally created castles save you time, they will also save you a lot of frustration just before your wedding starts. You may even want to have these sand castles created in miniature form. This will allow you to turn these beautiful centerpiece ideas for your destination beach wedding into wedding favors to send home with your guests.
