Starfish Wedding Ideas for Beach Brides

A beach wedding is the most relaxing of all wedding themes. It has to be, right? Rolling waves, a bright blue sky, and no shoes — I’d say that’s about as relaxed as you can get. With summer in our midst, we thought it would be fun to share new starfish wedding ideas. We’ve found elegant starfish wedding invitations, barefoot sandals, an elegant starfish wedding sash, starfish themed favors for guests and more… a little bit of everything! Enjoy!

Lace Tambourine for the Flower Girl

We love this lace tambourine! It is today’s #HANDMADEADAY find and we spotted it over at Alternative Journals, a shop where we always find something new to admire. Why have your flower girl toss petals when she can play one of these down the aisle? It’s way more fun (and there’s no cleanup required). Awesome! There’s a floral patterned one, too, below.

Lace Tambourine

This tambourine measures 6″ in size and features lace (or floral fabric).

It’s a soft, delicate blue that complements any skin tone, works well with many different dress accent colors, and is versatile for wearing on your wedding day — and beyond. Plus, aquamarine is a shade of blue, so it definitely counts as your “Something Blue“, too. I’ve been seeing so many pretty aqua jewelry pieces, so today we’ve rounded up twenty-one of the best aquamarine jewelry pieces from Etsy to share with you. These pieces are intended to be worn by the bride or bridesmaids, but, if you’re like me, you’ll probably be adding some of these to your own personal wish list.
