A wedding overlooking an ocean is a dream for every couple. But many a times, as a beach may not be close-by they may not be able to host the wedding on a beach. Due to convenience or budget issues, beach weddings are not easy to have. But if you are lucky to have your wedding on a beach, here's something for you. Beach-themed wedding centerpieces, it is.
Beach weddings are always exciting, both for the couple and for the guests. It's a time to knock off those shoes and get into your cozy slippers and attend the vows. One actually does not need to focus too much on the decorations as the picturesque atmosphere around is supportive enough.
Paper and lightweight materials cannot last for long due to the breeze, and so they get ducked off the list immediately. But there are a few centerpieces that can sustain the weather and go with the beach theme.
Obviously they need to be covered and protected from the wind. To give it a more realistic look, add a few shells around the castle. A cute figurine of the bride and bridegroom on top of the castle will complete the look.
Another idea is to place a protected candle in a wreath and decorate the wreath with shells, colorful flowers, etc. Floating candles surrounded by petals is also a great choice, especially if the wedding or reception is in the evening, but you have to cover them around to keep them burning and not blown off by the wind.
To create a Hawaiian look, place fake or real palm trees. You could put bottles of wine in between the flowers or candles or small fish bowls can replace the bottles of wine. Adding a fish tank if feasible is also catchy. You could also keep flowers floating in a bowl as they look really beautiful.
Add some creativity to these ideas and impress the invitees with something completely unique which your friends could adopt for their wedding too.
