With a beautiful beach setting as your main decor, keep the beach themed touches simple – like starfish boutonnieres and palm tree bottle opener favors. A signature cocktail that coordinates with your wedding colors is a festive and playful touch.

Palm trees swaying in the breeze. White sand beneath your feet. Waves crashing on the shore. String lights shining brightly against a dark sky.
This idyllic beach scene is the inspiration behind our latest mood board. At this wedding, the beauty of the beach is the central decor. A palm tree curls forward to make a ceremony arch. The bride’s yellow flowers look just picked. The cocktails are blue like the ocean. Palm fronds knit together to become a table runner. The glow from the lights turns everything dreamy. Your love is there. Your family is there. Your friends are there. The perfect day.

Vintage and beach go together like lace and burlap. Each pretty on their own, once combined the romantic effect is intoxicating!
The beach, so fresh and natural, has a timelessness that makes it a perfect backdrop for details inspired by another era. Delicate glass table decorations bring a light quality to earthier elements, like rustic flowers or greenery. Choosing a symbol like pineapple marries the tropical and the vintage and can be used as a logo that uniquely, but subtly, brands your wedding. Whether stamped onto favor bags, printed onto invitations or echoed in the groom’s boutonniere, the pineapple shape is a modern twist on a vintage classic!

Ocean botanicals are the inspiration behind our latest beach wedding mood board. Shades of teal and green evoke lush underwater gardens and the seaweed that washes up on the shore, alongside the starfish, sand dollars and seashells. These colors pair well with neutrals like white or beige, but can also hold their own against brighter hues like yellow. Leave the pastels behind and embrace the gorgeous mystery of the ocean. Create a beach or tropical-themed wedding that celebrates the gifts of the ocean!
