Anchors away, anchored in love, dropping anchor together – whatever the metaphor, we love a nautical theme for a beach wedding! From bottle openers and treat bags to bookmarks and candle holders, we can’t get enough nautical wedding favors emblazoned with adorable anchors. Go glamorous with sparkly candle holders or more rustic with muslin drawstring bags. Either way, your guests will love taking home a little maritime momento!
A starfish theme is a fun, whimsical choice when designing a beach, tropical or destination wedding. This mysterious sea creature – simultaneously earthy and divine – has an elegance that will keep your beach themed wedding decor from becoming too theatrical.
A simple place card holder like the one pictured below feels sophisticated, but joyful. Incorporate the theme with charming starfish wedding favors like bottle stoppers and openers. These items, made of metal with chrome or copper finish, feel substantial and impressive. Your guests will be delighted to take home a lovely beach-themed momento that they will use for years to come!
Send your guests home with a bit of the great outdoors by making DIY wedding favors using fresh herbs. These nature-themed gifts make great beach wedding favors. We used mini white French-style pitchers and planted marjoram and chives (pictured below). But, you could use any frequently-used cooking herb, such as fragrant rosemary or thyme. Personalize these favors with custom labels and favor tags. We have a wide variety of beach-themed designs to use on nautical wedding favors and tropical wedding favors, like the hibiscus flower “thank you” label and tag below.
Luggage tags make great favors, especially for an out-of-town occasion. The silver-finish airplane and cruise ship tags pictured below are particularly appropriate as destination wedding favors. Either would be a treat for your guests to receive and a fun way to remember the good times they had celebrating your union.
Luggage tag favors like the brightly-colored flip flop pictured below would work well for a beach wedding or bridal shower. And the anchor would be an attractive addition to any nautical-themed table setting.
Whichever travel-themed favor you choose, your guests will appreciate the humor and practicality of this charming keepsake.
Planning a beach wedding or beach bridal shower? These brightly-colored Surfboard Keychain Bottle Opener favors are a great choice your guests will love.

Or, create your own mini-beach presentation – like we did below – with the surfboards nestled sweetly in the sand.
You may not think of yourself as a DIY genius. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t create awesome DIY favors for a wedding or other party.
Candied pineapple is an impressive – and easy! – DIY favor idea. A fruit that is practically synonymous with paradise, pineapple is an especially good match for a beach event. Having a tropical-themed bridal shower or party? Or a beach wedding in a tropical location like Hawaii? Start with a recipe like this one from Martha Stewart. You can even use canned pineapple if fresh is out of season or unavailable.
Personalized treat bags (pictured below) are simple to create. The designs coordinate with our beach wedding invitations but can easily be adapted for a beach bridal shower or beach baby shower. The one below uses our Pineapple Wedding Invitations design – a fun way to continue the tropical theme.

Express the spirit of love throughout your beach wedding with heart and love-themed favors. A heart-shaped key bottle opener favor makes an adorable keepsake for your guests and comes individually wrapped in a clear topped deluxe black box finished with a white organza bow and a thank you tag. A cupcake favor box is a sweet container for a sweet treat. These charming boxes also make great beach bridal shower favors. For a more rustic or vintage look, a burlap bag that declares “Love is Sweet” is a perfect way to present delicious candies or sweet-smelling soaps.
Spell out the reason for your big day with vintage inspired faux aged favor boxes. They will create a beautiful display whether stacked together at a favor table or as part of each guests place setting. One letter of the word “LOVE” is printed on each of the four sides in an elegant black script.
Be assured, whichever beach wedding favors you choose, a gift from the heart is sure to bring smiles.
A rustic love bird motif is a great match for the easy, lighthearted feel of a beach wedding. The bird-themed favor boxes and bags below add whimsy to your beach wedding decor. The bird-cage packaging for the elegant heart-shaped bottle opener favor will have your guests swooning with delight! And it’s hard to beat the charm of a vintage bird-cage design on white muslin bags filled with delicate candies or other treats.
One simple way to personalize your wedding and stay within budget is to use envelope seals to label a variety of your items – from invitations to favors to thank you cards – with your own personal “branding.” Creating a wedding logo or monogram not only helps to coordinate the look of your event, it is also a great way to add your own style touches to your wedding’s smallest details.
Printed on glossy white paper, our round Pineapple Envelope Seals, pictured below, measure 1.5 inches and are the perfect size for invitations and thank you cards. These seals can also be used to customize and label favor boxes and bags, whether glass containers, kraft paper bags or colorful boxes.
Fill clear glass jars with brightly-colored candies and coordinate the label color with your wedding palette. The envelope seals pictured below are a match for our Pineapple Beach Wedding Invitations – an adorable way to bring a little tropical charm to your special day!
