I am currently in the process of moving to Galveston island, so I’ve been crazy about all things beach lately! I’ve been wanting to get into destination weddings for a while now, and let’s face it – destination weddings to Dallas are not very popular! (I’ve also always wanted to live near the ocean, so there’s that too.) Given my obsession with all things seashells and sand lately, I thought it was a good idea to post about it! Here are my top ten favorite beach inspired decorations for beach weddings via Pinterest, although most (if not all) of them can be used for other events as well!

Some raffia, ribbon and a starfish make up this pretty but simple aisle accent.
This beautiful bridal bouquet incorporates seashells. Dig for seashells from the beach you’re getting married on to add a personal touch!
A round glass jar or vase, some sand, seashells and a decorative candle make a great table centerpiece – especially if the sand and shells come from the beach you got married on!
String seashells on twine, then attach to tables, chairs, overhands, walls or wind them around columns/posts. You can even add starfish, sand dollars and small pieces of driftwood!
Put a starfish in your hair! Just attach to a barrette. You can also and some twine with seashells and sand dollars hanging down from the starfish.
This gorgeous champagne glasses – covered in pearls, seashells and starfish – are perfect for the bride and groom!
This Save the Date gets across all the needed information to guests: the couples names, the date of their wedding, and what kind of wedding they will be having!
Add sea coral to your decor for more of that beach atmosphere.
Turn sand dollars into escort cards, place cards or even wedding favors!
Last but not least, the wedding cake! Use brown sugar for sand. Add real or fondant seashells, coral, sand dollars and starfish!
