5 DIY Decorations For Your Beach Wedding

Posted by The Original Runner Co. on Sunday, July 12th, 2015

During the summertime, many couples will take to the beach to say their vows. Although some couples may stay with the traditional wedding decor, others use the beach as inspiration for a theme. The beach is pretty much your personal shopping center for all things decorative. Instead of breaking the bank with beach-themed purchases, here are 8 do-it-yourself ways to make your wedding more beachy.

1. Sand and Seashell Centerpieces: This is an easy way to decorate your tables within the theme. Buy some fishbowl-shaped glasses, put some sand in the bottom, and walk the shore to pick up seashells to enhance the beachy essence of these pieces. You can even include a candle in each one to add some mood lighting to the venue.

2. Sand Dollar Seating Cards:  Sand dollars are relatively easy to find and absolutely beautiful. Search the beach for as many as you can find (or just buy them from a craft store – they are pretty cheap) and use a permanent marker to write your guests’ names and table assignments.

3. Frame Your Aisle: Again, search the beach for colorful shells or driftwood to line your aisle runner. We love when the edges of the runner are buried under the sand to give the whole reception a more natural feel!

4. Candy Rock Party Favors: These little buckets with candy rocks are too cute to pass up! Of course the crafty Martha Stewart came up with these fun favors. You can buy little pails at a nearby craft store (or even a dollar store if you check during the summertime), and candy rocks are also available for purchase online. These look super authentic and your guests will love the authenticity.

5.  Let Them Eat Cake with a Beachy Vibe:  Create an elegant beach themed dessert station by adding a few starfish, sand dollars and shell shaped serving dishes.
