Beach-Themed Wedding Ideas

Some brides dream of a beach-themed wedding and plan their destination wedding to make this dream come true. But not everyone can jet off to exotic sunny beaches and blue waters.

The venue for a beach-themed wedding day

Unlikely as it may seem, we found a local beach in the Cotswolds with golden sands and blue waters and together with a team of creatives we whipped up this beautiful beach-themed wedding decor just for you.

A huge thank you to Joseph Dart Photography for these gorgeous, gorgeous images. Joseph is one seriously talented photographer and one I love working with.

Tables don’t only have to have numbers – names work beautifully too. Don’t you just love a wonky candle? Every time I use a taper dinner candle there are always a few that are unruly and go their own way.

Table Plan for a Beach themed wedding
A very ordinary picnic table and benches are dressed ready for a banquet. Continuing the beach /ocean-themed decor we used a green ombre chiffon fabric to create a table runner and added foliage, candelabras, seashells, and conch shells creating a wedding favour with mini messages in a bottle filled with sweets. And you have to have a coordinating table plan for your guests.
