A beach is the perfect backdrop for a romantic wedding and reception. With plenty of sunshine, water and sand, your beach only needs some unique décor to make it outstanding. Consider these unique ideas for beach wedding décor when planning your romantic beach wedding.
Abalone shells are a wonderful decorative accent for a beach wedding, and feature a gorgeous mother-of-pearl coating on the inside. They can be placed on tables, filled with a little sand, and then used to hold candles. When turned upside down, they make such a great container that they can also be used to hold tiny flower arrangements for each guest.**Driftwood** Driftwood is a beautiful and natural accessory that can be used many different ways for beach wedding décor. Brides can glue tealight candles to larger “branches” of driftwood for an elegant candle display, and bundles of driftwood can be tied with raffia and placed as table centrepieces. Include a few colorful flowers and you’ve got a gorgeous centrepiece that works very well for a beach wedding. **Umbrellas** Umbrellas can make an ordinary beach wedding into an extraordinary affair. Large umbrellas can be purchased or rented to provide shade for guests as the couple says their vows. Colorful drink umbrellas can also be used to decorate tables and dress up foods in a tropical beach wedding. **Large Garden Poles** Garden polls with hooks normally designed to hold planters can double as lantern or hanging candle holders at a beach wedding. They’re great as aisle markers that the bride will walk through as she meets her future husband at the altar. Although they traditionally come in black, they can be painted in the bride’s wedding colors easily. **Messages in a Bottle** Few things are more romantic than a message in a bottle, and they make fantastic beach wedding décor. They can be used as table décor, and with careful construction, can even be used as place cards for each guest. Beach weddings are beautiful and memorable, and with the right décor, can be breathtaking. Consider these décor elements for your beach wedding, and let your creativity and imagination run wild.
