So beach wedding planning season must be on. And so to help narrow down the many choices out there, here are 10 of my favorite handmade designs for beach weddings found on Etsy.

conch shell save the date bookmark

Save the Date.

Not only does this save the date announce your theme early on, it’s a bookmark your guests can use again and again…maybe while relaxing on the beach with a good book. {handmade by www.SunshineandRavioli.etsy.com}

beach wedding dress shrug

Dress Up the Dress.

Beach wedding gowns are often light and airy. But if you want to add a little more va-voom…and still be able to walk easily on sand, this glamorous shrug could be your answer. {handmade by www.EmpressBride.etsy.com}

beach wedding sign

The Signage.

Handmade custom signs point your guests in the right direction, in a fun personal way. {handmade by www.Funkifolkart.etsy.com}

seashell beach wedding pomander ball

The Aisle Decor.

These shell balls are a beachy alternative to floral balls for the back of chairs lining the aisle. {handmade by www.iDoArtsyWeddings.etsy.com}

nautical chart wedding guest book

The Guest Book.

This map covered handmade guest book is a real heirloom piece, not just because of the guests’ words within. But also because of the hand bookbinding work, including coptic stitching. {handmade by www.OliveArt.etsy.com}

seahorse wedding place card

The Placecards.

Seahorses are a wonderful alternative to shells and starfish for beach weddings. And these are very unique, very fun placecards. {handmade by www.TimelessPaper.etsy.com}

beach wedding sand votives

The Decor.

Real makes an impact. So as much as you can include real shells, starfish, anchors, etc. to your wedding decor. The more authentic items you include the more you immerse your guests in your theme. These votive holders are made with real sand. {handmade by www.seasidedesigns.etsy.com}

shell wedding cake server set

The Cake Cutting.

The cake cutting is often the signature event of the wedding (after the “I dos” of course!). Beach it up with elegant shell covered cake servers that become a memento of your special day. {handmade by www.Beadz2Pleaz.etsy.com}

glass fish beach wedding centerpiece

The Centerpiece.

Wow. Ice-sculpture is beautiful, but this glass fish inspired centerpiece is eye-candy you can keep. Placed prominently in your reception space, it will add an elegant artistic flair. {handmade by www.ConfectionsInGlass.etsy.com}

beach wedding starfish tags

The Takeaway.

Clean, friendly design makes these favor tags appropriate for a variety of beach weddings, from casual to elegant. {handmade by www.maidavale.etsy.com}

Posted by in Our Designs

Justin loves Halloween like most people love Christmas. I love candy corn like most people love chocolate cake. So this is a really fun time of year for the both of us. Yet somehow we’ve managed to not throw a Halloween party in a really long time.

But if you are throwing a Halloween party this year, I’ve found some chic yet fun inspiration for adults. And maybe I can live through you just a little bit.
