For a beach lover, like myself, a beach wedding is something that many people dream of having. As a bride and groom you have to be really flexible if you have your beach wedding outside as you can never plan what the weather will be. However, you can still create a truly inspiring beach themed wedding indoors by using sand, shells and soft colors to give you that beach feel. For this week's wedding Wednesday I have put together a great beach themed wedding that you can host on the beach or where ever your venue may be.

With a beach theme being a popular one, you can find a great selection of save-the-dates and invitations with a beach inspiration. An easy way to show that beach inspirations but still keeping the invitation classic is by using a single shell, sand dollar or starfish accent to accompany the invitation. If you plan early enough you can also order stamps with a beach theme. These invitations are by
The Green Kangaroo.
You can take that same shell, starfish or sand dollar you use on your invitation and incorporate it into your place cards, table numbers and aisle decorations. Incorporating the shells as the place cards can also serve as a creative favor that your guests can take home with theme. You can find the sand dollars place cards on the blog Wedding Moo and the starfish place cards on Project Wedding. Even if your ceremony does not take place on the beach you can create beach themed decorations to hang down the aisle at your church. A simple DIY table numbers craft with small shells like the one below from Style Me Pretty is also a great way to incorporate your beach theme into your big day.
During the ceremony the bride and groom can incorporate a knot ceremony where they tie a fisherman's knot which is the strongest knot. It is a great symbol and is an adorable ceremony to include as the rope will actually break before the knot can come undone and as the pressure builds the knot just gets stronger. (awe!)
And of course your can't forget about a beach themed cake. White chocolate shells and brown sugar sand can transform a basic wedding cake into a fantastic beach theme. This one was found on The Knot.
How would you incorporate a beach theme into your big day? I love the beach themed wedding cake with all the edible elements. You can find all of these beach themed inspirations and more on my Pinterest page @PreppyPlanner.
