Elegant Beach Wedding Centerpieces

DIY Style File ~ blue-green shells & starfish centerpiece


Created by Christine for a Destination Bride

Beach themed weddings are really popular here in south Florida.  I just finished a wedding here for one of our destination brides who wanted an elegant look for her reception while still incorporating seashells.  She'd already purchased these large glass containers and it was up to me to do something other than the typical sand and seashell theme.  I decided to create something around her white starfish motif and added pearls for an elegant touch. 

This simple centerpiece consists of a vase ($10), glass beads in the wedding colors ($4), large shells and starfish ($3 ea.), pearls ($2 per spool), LED light under the beads for a pretty glow at night ($4).  Total cost: $30.

We added some small floral accents and candles around it to create the final201003270010 look.

We want to see your ideas!

We invite you to submit your do-it-yourself wedding and party projects to our DIY Style File. Share your creative ideas with other brides right here. We’re looking for centerpieces, decorations, gifts for your attendants, favors, fun food, lounging areas…anything you’ve designed or made on your own (or with a little help) that you think is cool, beautiful, fun, and would be enjoyed by other brides.  It can be something from your bridal shower, wedding, bachelorette, etc.  Send us a brief write up of what you did, how you did it, and how much it cost.  Include your digital photos of the finished product.  For all professional photos, we ask that you include the photographer’s name so that we can credit their work.  (Please do not include photos of people.)  Send your submissions to Christine at CTcelebrations@aol.com and be sure to put the words DIY Style File in your subject so it won’t get trashed in our junk mail. 

(Dreamday Celebrations reserves the right to accept or deny submissions based on content or any other factors of their discretion.)

Happy Planning!
