Brides: Are you planning a beach themed wedding and tired of seeing the same beach wedding centerpieces time and time again? Are you looking for unique, creative beach wedding ideas but your search is coming up short? You’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re planning a beach wedding, rustic wedding, wedding in the woods, or otherwise (heck, even a state themed wedding), I’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s all about knowing where to look. The most unique wedding details – like beach wedding centerpieces, for example, aren’t found in a magazine spread. They’re tucked away in little corners of the world in coastal beach houses, found on shelves in antique shops with creaky wood floors, picked up along the shoreline of the coast, and, most of all, they’re handmade with two hands and a whole lotta love. Today we’re featuring one such artisan, By The Seashore, a husband and wife team located near the beautiful beaches of North Carolina. (I can’t help but hear this song as I write this. I love NC.) One glimpse into Carol and Andrew’s shop makes one dream of relaxing on the beach, and what could be more relaxing than a beach wedding? So, grab a cup of coffee and get ready to be inspired with eight unique ideas for beach wedding centerpieces. We think you’re going to love what we’ve found… and you’ve probably never seen anything like these before. Enjoy!

These vintage-inspired gold table numbers are beautifully crafted by River Kiss Weddings.
