A bridal shower on the beach is probably one of the best ideas we’ve ever heard! Find a little room in a clubhouse somewhere, bring the makings for a tasty cocktail and wear your favorite sundresses. Who wouldn’t want to attend this beautiful soirée?

Style Story: Beach Bridal Shower

Make a splash with the invitation!
Say hello to blue skies and gorgeous waves with bridal shower invitations that highlight your beach theme. Sending these Starfish Bridal Shower Invitations is an adorable option. Two starfish “hand in hand” watch the ocean waves roll in, giving just a glimpse of the fun and fabulous party planned for the bride and her guests.

Collect some seashells…
Haven’t you always wanted to comb the beach for seashells? Maybe you already do. Here’s your chance to put those seashells to good use! Use them as they are as cake and table decorations or get crafty and turn them into something beautiful like the seashell lanterns shown here. We thought the sand dollars wrapped around the backs of chairs with raffia are a clever way to literally tie the theme into your dinner setting.

A sensational party!
The best part about a beach bridal shower is how it plays with your senses. Play that up! Set up a table outside in the sand and let your guests watch and listen to the ocean as they eat, drink and mingle. Encourage everyone to remove their shoes so they can enjoy the sand between their toes. Serve fun drinks for guests to carry around as they walk the beach or dip their feet in the water.
