Style Sunday: Summer Series: Seashells
March 1, 2010 § Leave a comment
Last Sunday we focused on Beachy Casual and showed you some great ideas for a low-key and fun beach wedding, or themed party or event. This week we are stepping it up a notch to show you that a beach wedding doesn’t have to be casual. There are tons of items for a seashell theme and it can easily be dressed up or dressed down.
My favorite invitation for a seashell beach theme is definitely the TRU Invitation featured in the upper left corner. The shells on the invitation are absolutely gorgeous and it is a great invitation that will definitely set the tone for a more formal beach wedding. The invitation in the upper right, by Carlson Craft, is available in multiple colors. It is a little more casual and would definitely set the tone for a laid-back event.
To make it an authentic seashell theme I would definitely recommend these assorted seashell place card holders. I’d suggest using a tray filled with sand to nestle your seashell place card holders into…this would truly be an unexpected and great way to greet your guests.
For a more formal wedding use the seashell paper cut outs and the small silver shell place card holders.
Let your guests bring a bit of the beach home with them with the gel beach themed candles (shown in the upper left). It’s a great gift idea and every time your guest light heir candle they can remind themselves how much fun they had at your wedding.
I personally love these seashell candle tea lights…they would make excellent favors, but I think they would make even better table decor. Swap out the traditional tea lights around your center piece with these to add that something extra special.
You can also skip the fancy cake and serve cupcakes – cupcakes have always been a big hit at the weddings I have seen them at. The die cut cupcake wrappers feature seashells too!
Small shell soaps also make a nice favor, they come wrapped nicely in an aqua blue box – they just look so classy!
Don’t forget to thank you guests with personalized favor tags!
Kreative Idea: Skip the expensive floral arrangements for your centerpiece, instead find a fantastic vase, fill it it with sand, candles & shells.
