For the tables at your beach themed reception, there are a few things to think about. Tablecloth, centerpiece, favors, chairs decorations and place cards are the first and foremost you should be planning. These are the most important things at the table.
Reception Table Ideas-Tablecloth
When I think of the beach, I think simple. There’s no need to have anything printed or decorated on your tablecloths. The decorations on the table will be enough, you don’t want overkill. I would suggest a nice off white linen cloth like the one that can be found at Events Wholesale. This is a polyester cloth and comes in many colors if you don’t like the ivory idea. The price range is $12.00 to $36.00. A nice turquoise overlay top off the look perfectly. They also have satin tablecloth that run from $22.00 to $44.00 if preferred. This is a BBB listed business, has a low price guarantee and accepts many forms of payment including Pay pal. If ordering within the US, sipping is free, which is an amazing discount alone.
Wedding Reception Ideas-Chair Decorations
At the same site as above, there is also chair covers and sashes . All the same applies, with the shipping and availability of custom orders. To top off the beach look, and to coordinate with the table, a beautiful Mirror Organza Chair Sash would be great. These have a breezy look about them and also come in turquoise. These are $1.75 per piece. For the chair covers, they have chair covers for many types of chairs. The banquet chair covers are $5.95 a piece, and come in ivory to match your table cloth. They ask for five to seven days for delivery.
Beach Wedding-Centerpiece-Small Wedding
If it is a large reception, unless you have a lot of help, I would recommend a centerpiece that you can buy in bulk. There is a lovely beach themed centerpiece at Koyal wholesale. There are thirty five different styles of lovely sandcastle centerpieces . These range in price from $5.50 to $69.98. Mixing and matching of any of these are allowed. These are all handmade with real sand too! This business is listed under the BBB and accepts many forms of payment including pay pal. They ask for two weeks delivery time.
Beach Wedding Receptions-Place Cards
Probably the most unique place cards I found that one would buy in bulk for a larger wedding were at Etsy. These adorable place cards are starfish that attach to the top of each champagne glass. The cost is $100.00 for one hundred place cards. For personalized, add $.75 for names on the cards, and another $.25 each for numbers both in elegant script. The business is actually located close to me in Philadelphia, PA. They assemble all these handmade literally down the street from me in Drexel Hill, PA. So if you’re from the area, it is nice to work with a local company both to help the local economy and if there are any problems, its not like the company is located halfway around the world. You can choose either two to four day or six to eleven day shipping.
Beach Reception Ideas-Favors
At American Bridal I found adorable starfish candles in a glass case as wedding favors. The quantities run six plus, seventy two plus and one hundred and eighty plus. They run $1.55, $1.26 and $1.19 respectively. Shipping is free over $149.00, and they ask for three to four business days to ship. Check out the ordering page here.
Its not too hard or too expensive to pull together a beach themed wedding. You don’t have to be getting married on the beach to have a beach themed wedding either! If you are getting married in the cold months, take the chill off your guests with the warmth of your marriage and reception.
