Etsy Wedding: Shabby Chic at the Beach

I'm headed to the Bahamas on Sunday for a much needed vacation, so of course I've had the beach on my mind. In turn, for today's Etsy Wedding I've brought you a few shabby-chic beach ideas for a fun wedding by the sea!

I love the idea of keeping it neutral for a beach theme. Rather then the typical blues-- I prefer whites, tans, browns and golds. If you must have color, I'd add in a touch of that perfect pink you find on the inside of seashells. I had to use some clear vintage glass bottles for this theme... the mini ones would make a great container for a rolled-up menu at each place setting. A few really beachy details like these amazing sea urchin cufflinks and starfish place cards. Finish off your look (or your bridesmaids!) with a vintage sun hat and complete your reception with rustic signage.
