They may look like the real thing, but candy pebbles in small galvanized pails are a sweet and delightful favor for an outdoor wedding — a note lets guests know they are for eating.
Keepsake Seashell Seating Cards
Instead of numbers to assign guests their tables, use names of seashells. Each type of shell represents a different table. Arrange seating cards and shells on aqua fabric to give the impression of water. On each table, display a card with the shell’s name, or fill a bowl with those shells as a centerpiece.
Parasol Seating Card
These cheerfully colored umbrellas sporting seating assignments dot miniature sand dunes at the entrance to a beach-themed reception.
Shell Seating Card Holders
Perfect for a wedding by the ocean, these scallop shells clasp table designations as if bearing treasures from the sea. Guests pull out their cards to discover their table numbers, which are hidden behind the shells.
Dress tables with sculptural shells and coral-like pieces. Large conch and murex shells with cattleya orchids nestled in their openings and smaller marlin spike shells surround a vase filled with tiny shells and a pillar candle. Painted manzanita branches stand in for real coral.
These are great ideas to use for your upcoming beach themed wedding. Remember, you don’t always have to be at a beach location to have a beach theme.
