Beach-Themed Bridal Shower on a Budget

Planning a relaxed bridal shower by the beach? There’s nothing more romantic than feeling the sand on your feet and the salty breeze in your hair as you celebrate your friend’s upcoming wedding. Here are some ideas that will help inspire a simple bridal shower with a beach theme that won't break the bank.

          1. Invitations
Make a splash with the invitation! Say hello to blue skies and gorgeous waves with bridal shower invitations that highlight your beach theme. A fun design of two sea-stars walking hand in hand sets an expectation for an elegant yet laid back affair.

          2. Location
Choose a shady spot in the sand, sheltered from the wind (nothing worse than sand in your food), and transform the space with a low table and colorful pillows so guests can sit comfortably. An easy way to create a low table is using wooden crates and a plank of wood. The crates can be used to carry all of your shower supplies, too!

          3. Beach-themed party cake and sweets
A blue ombre cake can create a beautiful centerpiece, while custom beach-themed cookies are adorable snacks almost too cute to eat! The oyster cookies are really easy to make with store-bought sugar cookies, a little icing and white edible pearls!

          4. A Message In A Bottle Bridal Shower Game
Have each guest write well wishes or words of advice for the bride-and-groom-to-be and store them like a message in a bottle. This special display will serve as a sweet memento for the couple.

         5. Beach-Themed Bridal Shower Favors
Thank each guest with a small gift to take home. White chocolate candy, seashell soaps, scented candles and even flip-flops are practical favors that guests will actually use and enjoy!
