down by the seaside…

While many of us are heading off on our summer holidays to enjoy the sun and the sea, there are plenty of upcoming nuptials planned for the summer as well. If you’ve decided not to take any chances with the English summer and are planning a beach wedding abroad, why not take some inspiration with these quirky little nautical touches.

The star fish bottle stopper wedding favour is anything but tacky and is a charming way to bring in the seaside theme to a wedding and is echoed in the starfish place setting napkin ring. This personalised birch vase from Etsy can be inscribed with the couple’s initials and adds a rustic charm to each table – simply fill with flowers of your choice.

If you’re having the ceremony on the beach, especially if guests are staying over why not include baskets of flip flops or other beach essentials like beach towels for them. Other finishing touches include fun ‘gone to the beach’ signs, outdoor lanterns such as these gorgeous eco ones from Etsy and why not continue the seaside theme with beach stationery like the On the Beach range from Bunny Delicious.
