Coastal wedding styling tips from our table linen hire team

Thinking about a beach-inspired wedding?

There’s a clear distinction between a tropical themed party and a carefully curated and designed coastal style.

The most obvious is that each piece of furniture, each bit of decor, and every shade of colour plays its role, without being overbearing. Instead, they all work together to create a symbiotic flow and connection. 

So while your mind might instantly wander to inflatable palm trees and beach balls, we urge you to set the leis and cocktail umbrellas aside, and learn how our  linen hire team can help you tastefully create a balanced coastal wedding theme. 

What is ‘coastal’ styling?

A coastal theme is one that uses natural light, soft tones, and a clean aesthetic. It feels airy, comfortable, and beautiful.

Coastal styling for a wedding refers to a theme or design concept that draws inspiration from the coastal or beach environment.

It incorporates elements, colours, textures, and motifs commonly associated with the seaside or coastal regions. This creates a cohesive and visually appealing atmosphere.

Coastal wedding styling often embraces a relaxed and natural ambiance, evoking the beauty and serenity of the beach.

This kind of location can also perfectly suit the light, bright, and inviting vibe evoked with coastal styling. 

A coastal theme is one that uses natural light, soft tones, and a clean aesthetic. It feels airy, comfortable, and beautiful. And importantly, it’s miles away from the overwhelming and crowded ‘beach-themed’ spaces of the past!

This week, our table linen hire team takes a closer look at the different types of elements that pull together a balanced and sophisticated coastal wedding theme.

Coastal theme lighting

Whitewash rattan lighting

This beautiful style perfectly captures your coastal theme – with a contemporary twist. 

Available in a variety of neutral, earthy tones including white, tan, oak, and natural, these lights can become a key element of your overall theme and decor. 

Modern takes on traditional chandeliers

Rattan lace, wicker, natural wood: all of these rustic materials can be found in more modern chandelier light.

Who said chandeliers had to be gold and dripping with crystals?

Ropes, netting, and woven textures

A coastal theme leaning more towards a beach or nautical styling can be highlighted with ropes, nets, and other woven materials.

Think glass and rope table lamps, nautical style wall lanterns, and natural woven pendant lighting.

And of course our favourite type of lighting: candles! Creating the perfect ambiance any time of the day, candles are particularly perfect at dusk, while your guests are enjoying canapes – or as night falls, as the party begins! Explore candle hire here.


What flowers should I use for my wedding bouquet?

Our table linen hire team can agree that crisp white florals are suited to almost any kind of wedding theme, but we love them particularly for a coastal wedding.

When combined with complementary shades, like pale pink, seafoam green, or navy, these white florals evoke a delicate, comfortable, and romantic atmosphere.

To further enhance the coastal vibe, we highly recommend incorporating lush green foliage.

Some of our favourite beach wedding florals include lilies, orchids, king proteas, and of course, roses.

What colours are best for a beach wedding?

Incorporating seaside shades like blue and green can accent and highlight your theme, but we suggest keeping it subtle so as to avoid looking too garish or kitschy.

So instead, we recommend streamlining your colour palette to follow a more measured and balanced theme.

That could mean an oatmeal weave linen tablecloth topped with sage green plates and our arctic weave napkin hire.

The goal of a coastal theme is to make guests feel soothed, relaxed, and happy.

Focus on hues that are more muted, that tie in with pastel hues connected to the coast, such as shades of green and blue. 

Where you might feel limited by colour, you can certainly make up with texture! Layer lots of different textures together, creating a comfortable and inviting space. 

We love our woven tablecloths, overlayed with a light chiffon table runner, to create a textural, breezy, and beautiful table setting. Explore our table linen hire catalogue here.


Other personalised touches


A beach-themed wedding can be beautifully complemented by incorporating elements of boho style.

The boho aesthetic is known for its free-spirited, natural, and relaxed vibe, which aligns well with the carefree atmosphere of a beach setting.

To add a hint of boho magic, you might like to incorporate macrame – whether it’s on seating, as a part of your backdrop, or even wrapped around your wedding bouquet. Macrame instantly adds a boho feel to your coastal or seaside wedding.

Gold, silver, and metallics

Inject a bit of glamour and romance to your wedding with touches of gold, silver, or other metallic tones. Consider gold cutlery and decor including candle holders and vases, and dial up the glam with lots of fairy and festoon lights.

Showing off beautiful natural timber is a great way to inject a bit of coastal ruggedness to your theme – perfect if you want a more rustic look.

We love a single table runner through the centre of the table, or alternatively, a sheer table cloth that still shows off the raw beauty of timber.
