- Ensure that you carry the theme through to your cake and sweet treats e.g. with coral or shell decorations.
- Ask your florist to recommend flowers and foliage most commonly found in coastal locations to make the look really authentic.
- Create a ‘fishing net’ or a hessian table runner.
- Use layered coloured table linen in shades of blue.
- Fill clear glass tealight holders with sand before putting the candle in.
- Use blue coloured glassware, for example, for the water tumblers to inject a pop of blue into each place setting.
- Include twigs that are reminiscent of coral or vertical floating seaweed, into your centrepieces.
- Remove the handle of a child's bucket - spray with aerosol adhesive - cover with sand. Place upside down on your table - the perfect sandcastle centrepiece!
- Fill Kilner jars with seasalt and place the tealight candle on top. Decorate the top of the jar with twine or raffia and shells.
- Leave your guests a ‘mini’ message in a bottle as their wedding favour
- Stack fish bowls of different sizes and fill with water in different shades of blue. Place floating candles in the top bowl
- Make seaside inspired cookies as guests favours and beautifully package them in cellophane bags.
- Place beach pebbles in the bottom of your glass vase centrepieces. These can be collected from the beach or purchased from specialist outlets.
- Fill the bottom of clear hurricane lamps with shells once you've stood the pillar candle inside.
- Make hessian chair ties, gathered at the centre with a starfish shell.
- Ask your guests to write you a wish on a large pebble and display in a clear glass hurricane vase. Keep forever to remind you of your big day.
- Ask your florist to incorporate shells into your bouquet.
- Create a ‘LOVE’ sign of over-sized letters adorned with shells.
- Provide your female guests with comfy flip flops for the evening festivities, regardless of whether or not you are by the sea!
- Finish your cake with soft brown sugar to represent sand!
