Throwing a shower for a bride-to-be who’s getting married on the beach? Whether it’s a destination wedding or you’re lucky enough to live ocean-side, this is the perfect theme for your beach bride!

Embrace the Theme
When it comes to a beach-themed bridal shower, go all in! This theme is a classic, so it’ll be simple to carry the theme all the way through from your invites to décor. First, set the tone and get your guest excited to attend with a beach-themed invitation. We adore the new Beach Retreat Bridal Shower Invitation. The coastal-vibe feels rustic. If you want a more elegant look, upgrade to shimmer paper and add a touch of sparkle.

Set a Dress Code
We LOVE the idea of setting a dress code for a beach shower theme and your guests will love it too. It gives the ladies (or gents) a chance to be creative, have fun and feel like they are a special part of the celebration. Plus, it’s instant (free!) décor. Give guests specific direction right on the invitation. Some ideas include:
“Please dress to impress in your favorite Hawaiian-themed shirt!”
“Dress Code: Beach Chic and Bare Feet”
“What to Wear: Beach Blues. Turquoise to Aqua – Any Hue Will Do!”

Décor on the Cheap!
Let’s face it: throwing a bridal shower can be expensive. Lucky for you, beach bridal shower decorations can be super cheap and still look like a million bucks. Shells are the perfect decoration and easy to come by. Glass bottles or tin buckets filled with sand and candles add instant sophistication to any space. Top it off with turquoise dinnerware and some festive desserts and voila! You have one cheap and chic beach bridal shower.
