Who doesn’t love the sound of waves crashing and the serene, ocean-deep beauty of the beach?
If you’re a self-proclaimed “beach baby”, you might even take your love to the next level by planning a beachside wedding, or wedding with a distinctly coastal theme.
Can you picture it? Getting married right there on the beach, perhaps at sunset, with the ocean waves as nature’s background music.
Having the vast blue sea and clear sky as the backdrop as your feet melt into the sand while declaring your vows can indeed be a memorable and rewarding experience.
Even if you don’t have your wedding on the beach per se, you can carry the beach theme through your ceremony and reception decor.
This could mean something as simple as an outdoor ceremony, with coastal decor and colours supporting your reception space.
So if you’ve decided coastal romance is the way to go for your upcoming nuptials, read on!
Table Art’s table linen hire experts love bringing visions to life, and this week, we’re sharing ways to bring the beach to your reception venue.
Sea-inspired colour palette
The easiest way to bring the beach to your wedding, regardless of its location, is in the colour scheme.
Think teal and ivory, crisp white and tan, or tangerine and peach to create a soft, romantic, and distinctly coastal theme.
These colour palettes instantly invoke feelings of serenity, as guests mistake your wedding for a luxurious beach somewhere in the Maldives!
A great tip if you’re seeking inspiration is to check out online blogs on people’s actual beach houses – the decor here can be an endless source of inspo!
Want to stray slightly from the norm? Consider crisp whites with splashes of pastel or striking tones like navy and coral.
Table linen hire for beach wedding
Combine natural, earthy decor with woven linens to create the ultimate textured table setting.
Have gorgeous tables you prefer to show off? Add structure through the centre of the table with a runner, leaving the majority of the surface exposed.
Our table linen hire picks include:
- White weave for that timeless, crisp look
- Whisper weave for textured, natural beauty
- Seafoam weave – how could we not pick it with that name?!
- Navy or Denim for a slightly more decadent coastal theme
- Apple Stripe for the perfect summer soiree
Boho wedding theme
There’s a reason boho is constantly a recurring wedding theme – this timeless look is perfect for the laid-back luxe bride, and won’t be going out of style anytime soon!
Take your guests on a journey to a chic, calm, and serene setting through a beach-boho theme. This clean and laid-back theme is simple yet very personalised.
Think fishtail braids, an abundance of pampas grass, and white rattan furniture to create that glam yet relaxed boho beach theme.
Inject a splash of colour through table linen and bright florals.

Mellow candlelight and lanterns
Carry that romantic, relaxed, and happy vibe through the night with candles and lanterns that impact your event’s overall ambiance.
Mellow lighting helps set the scene for a wedding that transitions from day to evening, while candles and lanterns add warmth to the wedding reception.

Mediterranean colour palettes
The vibrant, warm, and ocean-inspired Mediterranean coloured beach wedding best represent the colours of the sea.
Mix and match the Mediterranean colour palettes with strikingly moody table linen that offers a spin on the typical blues and greens.
The simple yet elegant rustic colour palette will transport your guests to a yacht setting sail off the Greek Islands!

- Emerald velvet brings the jewel tones of the sea to your event
- Navy helps inject a little bit of “nautical” to your wedding! Check out our new Royale velvet napkins, navy weave or denim weave linens!
- Teal Chevron is bright, playful, and stylish
Go back to basics and choose crisp white as the basic for your luxe beach wedding.
This theme is great for two important reasons:
- White is timeless; this stylish trend will never date!
- White is the perfect blank canvas to add touches of colour – and which colours you add is totally up to you. Best of all, any colour you choose will go with white!
Perhaps you want to go super chic and simple, choosing white table linens, baby’s breath floral arrangements, and a pop of colour through gold-dipped cutlery or velvet napkins.
