If you're getting married by the ocean or any other waterfront venue with a view, you won't need a ton of beach wedding decor (the scenery will do the work for you!), but no reception is complete without fabulous centerpieces. These beach-themed wedding centerpieces are just a few ways you can add to your tropical or nautical wedding theme. Check out these beach wedding ideas and centerpieces so you're ready to share them with your wedding florist when the time comes.

This centerpiece is ideal if you're going for a classic nautical or beach theme. Showcase soft flowers, like white hydrangeas, pale pink roses, and green amaranthus in a simple wooden trough and finish the arrangement with a few starfish.

Adding nautical details to your centerpieces, like this miniature rope ball holding a table name card, is another way to incorporate your beach wedding theme.

King protea centerpiece with monstera leaves
Proteas (the large, pink spiked flower in the center of this arrangement) are boho and beachy at the same time. Since these oversized blooms make a statement all on their own, you don't need to add much else—a few monstera leaves and flowers will do the trick.

Fresh fruit might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you're decorating your wedding reception, but it's actually perfect for a tropical or beach-themed wedding. Use citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, and limes to accent a colorful arrangement of roses, greenery, and eye-catching banksia flowers.
