Beach Love Reception Ideas

Bring the beauty of the beach to your wedding celebration! Chic coastal textures and colors turn everyone into a beach lover! Extend nature’s picture-perfect backdrop of sun and sand to the indoors! Splashes of beige and blue bring out the bliss in a beach-themed wedding celebration. Shore up on inspiration for coastal chic by surfing through our beach wedding ideas.

Idea 1: Make waves with custom drinkware!

Customized drinkware is a trendy and cute favor option for your beach wedding celebration, whether at land or sea. The scallop shell design spreads the beach love, along with an inscription of the happy couple’s names and date of nuptials!

Idea 2: A coastal chic lighting idea

If your reception takes place in the evening, give your soiree a warm glow by hanging a cozy coastal canopy of bulb lights and paper lanterns. This romantic arrangement would look great over a dining table, entrance or dance floor.

Idea 3: Put your cake on center stage!

Decorate a special table to put your cake in the spotlight. A bright white tablecloth adds appeal to the beautiful Caribbean-blue ombre effect of this cake, and a cake topper with the couple's newly shared initial gives an extra touch of personality. Hang pretty paper lanterns to bring the outdoors in, and a well-placed pop of blue can make a "wow" impression!

Idea 4: Use real seashells to hold your place cards

They say you can hear the ocean through a seashell, so incorporate this place card idea to remind your guests of the music of the waves. These shells have a slit in them just large enough to slide in a place card or photo, and they bring an authentic touch of the ocean to your table.

Idea 5: Create a sun-kissed place-setting

Bring the beach to your table by featuring splashes of blue and beige! Beachy love plates evoke memories of walking down the shoreline, along with special little touches from the seaside, like sand dollar coasters and seashell place card holders.

Idea 6: Toast to more sunny days together!

These toasting glasses come all dressed up for an elegant beach wedding celebration. Their little satin bows are sandy white and blend beautifully with a coastal table spread.
