Beach Bridal Shower Ideas

Posted August 1, 2013 | 51 Comments

Have you considered a beach bridal shower? We’ve shared plenty of beach wedding ideas in the past, and most of these can be converted to bridal shower ideas, too. Today we’re sharing a few of our favorite beach bridal shower ideas PLUS the chance to win FREE favors by Paper Ink Love! Enjoy!

Beach Bridal Shower Ideas

The most popular color palette for a beach bridal shower is blue, white, and beige (think blue skies, white puffy clouds, and sand). Consider white and blue paper lanterns, painted mason jars, paper mache letters (I love these new 3D letters), and candle lanterns for tables.
