The Best Beach Wedding Décor Ideas

Your wedding is an important day, and it should be just that – yours. There are many fantastic ways to add unique touches to your dream beach wedding.

As a popular and memorable beach wedding destination, seen so many beautiful seaside wedding ceremonies and receptions over the years. Now, we’re sharing some of our favorite beach wedding décor, inspired by real Palmetto Dunes weddings!

Bouquets

A cute idea for a beach wedding is to include a starfish in your bridal bouquet! Small starfish are always an option too, or skip the flowers entirely and make your bouquet out of seashells. You’ll save money and your beautiful seashell bouquet will last forever.

The Cake

Don’t you just love this elegant cake covered in edible shells? There are lots of ways to incorporate a coastal theme into your wedding cake. Try an adorable beach-themed cake topper, fondant beach chairs, or blue ombré icing.

Table Centerpieces

Muted tones with bright pops of color and natural accents are the perfect fit for a seaside celebration centerpiece! We love the idea of incorporating different textures and colors into reception centerpieces for a multifaceted look. The great thing about beach-themed centerpieces is that they make affordable and easy DIY projects. Look for grass, driftwood, seashells, and beach glass.

Shoe Sign

For a casual beach wedding, encourage guests to go barefoot! Let them know shoes are optional with a cute homemade chalkboard sign. Providing flip-flops is always a nice added touch!

Reception and Ceremony Seating Decor

Burlap or raffia are great for beach wedding décor – particularly when paired with a bright pop of color like the green ribbon shown below. Use starfish or seashells to decorate chairs, or go for a more nautical theme with rope, stripes and buoys.

The Aisle

Make your sandy ceremony aisle stand out with something you normally wouldn’t find on the beach, but is still natural and elegant. These flower petals look beautiful, and won’t cause the bride to trip!

Ceremony Arch

Take advantage of that warm ocean breeze and think whimsical for your ceremony arch. Capture the easy-breezy vibe of your surroundings by using a lightweight white fabric, and palm leaves!

“Just Married” Bicycle Flag

The best way to get around Palmetto Dunes is by bicycle, so forget the tin cans tied to a car bumper and hop onto a bicycle built-for-two! For an added touch, add a pennant reading “Just Married!”

This is one beach-themed wedding décor idea we love, but have yet to see at Palmetto Dunes… maybe you could be the first!
