Tropical Destination Wedding Centerpieces

These are very simple yet elegant looking centerpieces. Looks like they are used here as decorations but would make great centerpieces for long rectangular tables.

I love the use of the beach bucket pails for centerpieces. Here, they placed a table number sign holder they created from a closepin to hold their table number. Love the chocolate and pink combination.

I love the use of flowers at the base of the hanging lantern. Use tropical flowers with our white hanging lanterns for a beautiful centerpiece idea.

Look at the mini beach pails or galvanized buckets on the right! You could do the same thing by putting sweets in the buckets and attaching a favor card. Line them up at the entrance of your event and use them as escort cards for guests. So cute!

What a cute idea for serving guests snacks! Plastic pails are embellised with a variety of shells and are filled with snacks. You could do something similar to this by using our white embossed beach pails (already with the beach theme on it) and fill several pails with candies and do your own beach theme candy buffet!

This is a beautiful way to add additional color to your tables. A round glass vase or candle holder filled with sand, starfish, sandollars and shells and an orange color votive in the center. The glass within a glass helps contain the flame. I love the blue tulle used to resemble water!

This is a neat way to utilize glass cylinder vases. Very popularly used with sand, shells and a single candle, you can also fill them with water. They've colored the water here with blue food coloring. For an evening wedding, I might even add a rose shaped floating candle or add some glass beads and floral lites!

Beach Wedding Centerpiece Idea

When our regional magazine holds bridal events, we like to show the latest bridal fashions and talk about the latest wedding trends. By far one of the most popular among our brides that attend our events are our inspiration tables. We know that brides are always on the look out for ideas that they can use in their wedding.

To the right is a picture of one of our theme tables, the Beach Wedding table which includes one of our pink theme beach wedding centerpiece kits. A 12" hurricane candle holder with sand, a white pillar candle, a variety of shells and starfish and a few silk flower heads to help give it a bit of color. We used white table cloths on 90" round tables with a beautiful blue mist organza overlay to give the feel of the blue ocean. We added some mini glass votives surrounded with sand and shells to add more candlelight and then scattered an assortment of shells on the tables. Each place setting included one of our shell place card holders and a sand dollar cookie favor for each guest.

Beach Chair Photo Frame Placecard Holders

I love how this couple used the beach chair photo holders by inserting their engagement photo and giving to guests as favors. These can also hold place cards for guests or simply use then to decorate your beach wedding reception tables. You can find these at our store here:
