Having a wedding theme means planning your wedding around something you love, your favorite color or maybe even the location of your wedding. Beach wedding centerpiece ideas can help to finish off your beach wedding theme.

Beach weddings allow you to be creative with the planning. In general, think nautical for ideas. All things related to the beach, sailing and the ocean fair game for centerpiece ideas.

Make sure your centerpieces fit in with the overall theme and color choices of your wedding and your reception location. Make note of colors at your reception location as well as the d├ęcor and use that as your starting point for all of your reception decoration planning.

Look online and in antique or vintage nautical stores for ideas and supplies. You would be surprised what you might find if you take a few days to stroll through a beach or harbor town.

If you are having a destination wedding, planning your centerpieces may be a little more challenging for you. Work with the wedding planner at your resort for ideas. They will be able to tell you what flowers and other items are available. They are also a valuable resource to bounce ideas off of and to lend a hand in pulling it all together.
