Beach Themed Wedding - Seating Card Ideas


Beach Themed Weddings are one of my absolutely favorite themes of all time.  I want to get into the details and start a series on beach themed weddings.  Today, I have to share these cute ideas for seating chart ideas.  I found so many different ways to do the seating cards for your wedding.  I wish I had seen some of these ideas when I got married 10 months ago.  Surprisingly, I had the most trouble with the seating cards..... trying to find a cute COST EFFECTIVE way to to do the seating card table that fit in with my overall theme.  I hope you all can use some of these for inspiration.  Feel free to leave a comment on what you did or plan on doing for your wedding.  Hopefully, I will have some DIY projects to share with you all soon! Happy wedding planning! 

 Seashell Beach Themed Wedding -Seating Card

 This is a pretty and elegant way to arrange your seating cards.  These are regular classic bivalve seashells (they are the most commonly seen).  All you need to do is create a small hole in the very tip of the seashell to pull your ribbon threw to secure the actual seating card.  Simple and beautiful!



I absolutely love this idea and surprisingly I have never seen it done.  Its so simple but so creative.  Just make sure to have your names all facing an outward direction so people can fast and easily identify their seating card or seating bottle.  Love this! The names can be handwritten as well for a more romantic and shipwrecked feel. Amazon has some very inexpensive bottles you can use to create this beach themed wedding seating card.

Lets Sail Away! - Paper Boat Beach Themed Wedding Seating Card

 Is this not the CUTEST thing you have ever seen.  They are little paper sail boats with printed guests names on the front end of the boat! Just like a real boat would have its name on the front.  It features accompanying flags with the table number as well.  They are hung up by clothes pins attached to small ropes, which gives it even more of a beach/nautical feel.  How cute.... if you can make a paper boat you can make this! Video Instructions below!!!

 Starfish Beach Themed Wedding Seating Card

These star fish are imbedded in sand with an accompanying seating card attached to them with ribbon.  Simple, Easy, Beautiful.  One of my husband's friends got married and this was the method they used... it was really cute!

Compass Beach Themed Wedding Seating "Card"

For the Bride where money is NOT A PROBLEM..... these seating compasses are absolutely gorgeous.  They also act as a fabulous wedding favor.  A little piece of round card is placed with each guests name.  I have also seen these engraved, but this was at a very very small wedding.  Now that would be a keepsake.  This wins points for originality!

 Sand Dollar Beach Themed Wedding -Seating Cards

Sand dollars are one of my favorite beach "items."  I am from a beach city and we were always looking for a whole sand dollar on the beach if we could find it when we were little.  These also act as a great keepsake for your guests.  And you can also hand-write these for a more personal feel!
