A Beach themed wedding is beautiful as they feel so romantic and the great thing about this theme is that it doesn't have to cost a fortune to create a stunning centerpiece. You could hire a florist or wedding decorator but you would be wasting your money as these ideas are very simple!
Just think of all the free beach items that you could use, and then replace afterwards. Pebbles, shells, driftwood and sea glass are all items that would easily be added into a centerpiece.
A nice easy beach idea is to use hurricane lamps, these you can pick up cheaply at consignment stores, thrift stores, wholesalers and don't forget to ask friends and family if they know someone that was married recently - they may just have a basement full of hurricane lamps!
With the hurricane lamps you can half fill with sand and pebbles and then have a pillar candle. You could also use shells and you can pick these up quite cheaply in craft stores - put a few shells in each centerpiece and you will find that one bag will go a long way.

The key when you are creating your beach theme is to keep the colors simple; pale lemons, blues, greens, pinks, and creams work really well.
Love the blue strip table runner in this picture as it reminds me of the old fashioned deck chairs. And the colors are perfect for a beach theme.
You can always use your beach wedding favors as your beach themed wedding centerpiece.
The favors may seem expensive for favors but when you think they are providing the decoration as well, then you are not spending anything on your centerpieces. In the end you will be making a saving.
Here are some great beach favors from My Wedding Favors that
would work really well as the table decorations. You could always
scatter some shells and pebbles on the tables if you felt that you
needed a bit more.
