2011 Summer Wedding DIY: Beach Theme Ideas

These hot new beach trends are kind of making me wish I didn’t have such an aversion for the feeling of gritty sand between my toes. Kind of.

I love the look of white and blues, it’s a very Cape Cod vibe that works for beach weddings. I will admit, these Steve Madden Westii Raffia heels are what got me thinking about a beach wedding in the first place. They’d look adorable with a white sun dress and a cute raffia fan.

If you could gather your guests and wedding party to an all white coordinated event, with blue and tan accents, how Hearst Castle- esque would that be?! In planning my own wedding I’ve heard stories about how the Hearst family would throw these big elegant parties with coordinating furniture and outfits. These color theme would look awesome with wedding tents and seashell accents. Think

Throw in a little blue and white chair decorations and sailor boat table decor and your party has a full nautical look. And I love the cuteness of a matching beach couple cake topper!

And I’ve been seeing driftwood accents all over my bridal magazines and websites. I’m tempted to find a reason to incorporate these driftwood garlands and driftwood accent pieces into my home decor.

I know, I’m not a true Californian if I can’t stand the feel of sand on my feet. But these decorations really make me want to plan an all white shindig at the beach just for fun. What do you think?

Grapewood Wedding Centerpieces & Ghostwood Centerpiece Ideas

While manzanita branches and manzanita tree centerpieces have been classic wedding spotlight pieces for some time now, 2011 will see the emergence of grapewood wedding centerpieces and driftwood centerpieces.   Seaside residents may have a leg up on this new decor idea but now all of us can enjoy the beauty of grapewood wedding decor. Koyal Wholesale carries beautiful wholesale grapewood branches and driftwood branches online. View the gallery of image ideas below for ways to incorporate grapewood or driftwood branches into your wedding decor. Combine with hanging crystals to create a gorgeous tablecard centerpiece. Hang silk flower balls, pomanders or moss balls from the edges of the grapewood to add beautiful bursts of color. Use stunning crystal votive candleholders and hanging votives to add a lighting element to your driftwood centerpiece.

California driftwood is also known as Ghostwood.
