If you are considering the beach for your wedding ceremony and reception, the one thing to keep in mind in regards to decor is to keep it all simple. The ocean is one of the most beautiful and breathtaking backdrops you could ever have for your big day, so it doesn’t take much for guests to be amazed and speechless. One great way to keep everything chic and simple is by keeping nature’s own color scheme…tans, blues, creams. Accessorizing with textures is key because it adds a little rustic-ness to your chic theme. This will help bring everything together in a classy and well balanced way.
Say goodbye to the cliche event centerpiece, and say hello to these beautiful, and unique centerpieces that are outside the box.

These are some great samples on how to add the “wow” to your centerpieces! It all starts with your vases, make sure they are modern, perhaps abstract, vintage, or textured. If the vase you have selected for your centerpiece is simple, accent it with little knick backs around it that blend and tie everything together into one (good sample is picture on bottom left).
