We’ll be going over some table setting themes that will steal the show at your reception and maybe even inspire some of your other wedding details.
1} Tropical Paradise
For a wedding theme that captures that bright-colored island paradise feeling, a bold tropical table setting is the way to go. You can take this style down a more sophisticated and minimal route, or go all-out eclectic with contrasting colors and motifs. Mix and match colors and textures with vibrant flowers and plants to bring this fresh and fun style to life.

2} Elegant White
Nothing says “chic” like a sophisticated white tablescape. This décor theme pops against the blue ocean and sandy beach and creates a look of pure elegance. The best part of this style is that you can add in any accent colors you’d like for a unique show-stopping look that your guests will love.
Color palette: White, cream, steel gold, and light blue-gray.

With bohemian wedding styles being so popular lately, going for a bohemian-themed beach wedding seems only natural.

Just Remember, It’s All in the Details

Incorporating some of the elements we talked about above will go a long way in creating a look that seems straight off the pages of a magazine.
