Top 31 Beach Theme Wedding Centerpieces Ideas


Summer is a great time for a beach-themed wedding, even if you don’t live anywhere near the ocean! It’s even more fitting if the couple is going to a tropical location for their honeymoon as the wedding’s theme will help excite them and allow their friends and family to share in the fun vacationing atmosphere. These wedding centerpieces feature starfish, coral, tropical flowers, sand, and seashells for beautiful, tasteful table décor.

Coral Centerpieces

Coral is a natural form of artwork with its unique shapes and colors. You don’t need to style it or embellish it; simply pair it with complementary candles, flowers, or seashells. You can even print individual place settings for each table to match the featured coral centerpiece.

Starfish Centerpieces

Starfish are the most interesting shells to look at. Draw your guests’ attention with these distinctive creatures against a backdrop of sand, seaweed, or coral. Starfish and colored sand centerpieces will look especially tropical. When you get back from the honeymoon, you can even use these wedding centerpieces to decorate your home and remind you of your most special of days.

Seashell Arrangements

Why not gather all the sea elements together complete the scenery? Consider placing seashells, coral, and starfish in display bowls with a swimming fish or two to really enliven the tables! You can combine the fish into a larger aquarium later or send the bowls home with guests who might want them.

Argh, matey! Celebrate the treasure of your love with undersea treasure chests. Worn or new, chest decorations will be an intriguing addition to your tables. Adorn them with pearls, shells, and seaweed or flowers. But keep them closed to maintain the mystery! Consider placing favors inside the centerpieces and allowing guests to unlock them when the time is right.

Driftwood Centerpieces

Use driftwood for more rustic or authentic beach décor. Place it by itself for a stark appearance or arrange it with flowers, shells, and candles for balanced centerpiece idea. You can make your own driftwood by stripping the bark off a branch and soaking it in saltwater.

Sand and Pebble Centerpieces

Sand and pebbles make the perfect base for your beach-themed table centerpiece. Fill a tray or jar with sand or pebbles on the bottom and then create your beach scene on top using shells, driftwood, or flowers. Or you can make colored sand or pebbles the main attraction of your centerpiece. Simply fill decorative vases or Mason jars with colored layers of pebbles and sand. Gift the display to guests or place them around your home afterward.

Burlap Centerpieces

Like driftwood, burlap is an ideal rustic addition to balance your more ornamental or colorful elements. Wrap your decorative pieces with bits of burlap and mesh or use burlap as your “sand” base for a cleaner display.
