Gorgeous flowers and fruits in bright, vibrant colors are what make tropical locations so special. These gifts of nature are the inspiration for our latest beach wedding color combination: red, guava, tangerine and yellow. You can almost taste the summer sweetness of this delicious palette.
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!
Beach weddings run the gamut from casual to formal, as most venues can easily be dressed up or down to suit a couple’s style and vision. Glass bottles and jars, pretty flowers, shell-themed decor and a little imagination are all you need to create a relaxed beach wedding that feels unique. It’s the details that make all the difference, like the breezy seagull invitations and whimsical ocean-themed cookies included in our latest inspiration board below.

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.
Exotic flowers are the inspiration for our latest tropical beach wedding color palette. Wine, red and dusty rose are a striking combination that marries the romantic and the spiritual. Bridesmaids dresses using these colors would be breathtaking. Use a modern green-yellow like lime as an accent color for bouquet ribbons, groomsmen ties and table setting details. This energizing hue will brighten the palette while maintaining the elegance of the design. To achieve this invitation look, color customize our Tropical Flowers Wedding Invitations and add layering options.
Great wedding guest book alternatives, personalized signature posters make for modern and treasured keepsakes. Our colorful, yet elegant beach-themed, tropical and nautical designs would be an attractive addition to your home decor and a meaningful reminder of the love that surrounded you on your special day.

The hibiscus is Hawaii’s state flower and is strongly associated with this beloved island paradise. Whether your beach wedding is in Hawaii or Huntingon Beach, let the lushness of tropical flowers be the centerpiece. With deep pink flowers decorating the ceremony aisle, the reception tables and the cake, what more do you need? Other than a smiling bride and groom, that is.

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.

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.
