Happy Thursday Peeps,

As I’m sure most of you know by now, gorgeous Rachel of Bride By The Beach wedding blog graces our pages every 2 weeks with her spin on cool beach wedding inspiration with the aim of keeping you lovely people up to date on the beach wedding trend which we’re predicting is going to be HUGE in the next few years. She’s already shared her ideas on stunning wedding dresses for a boho beach beauty and has personally wowed me with her post on ceremony arches. Today, it’s all about quirky inspiration for table plans and place names and once again she’s come up trumps with some awesome  ideas.

Get ready to be inspired by our Bride By The Beach….

*Wedding waves* to all the Brides to be! Hope you all had a fantastic Easter break?  I’ve been frantically trying to fit in as much wedding DIY as I possibly could this weekend and got a few things ticked off the to do list – one of them was our seating table plan – phew!

There are so many gorgeous ways to display your seating plan and I really think that this is one element where you can have a lots of fun and be ever so creative. I found a wealth of lovely ideas whilst browsing the good ol’ wide world web – any take your fancy?

Let’s kick off with some flowers:

The floral edged frame seating plan is such a stunner isn’t it?  And if you’re like me and getting married on the beach, how about a surfboard table plan or boat – LOVE this:

But if you don’t have half a kayak lying around, the use of these starfish and seashells are gorgeous:

You could really personalize your table seating plan and print of a picture of your loved ones and pin those up, a lovely touch me thinks:


And last but not least, this very cool table plan.  Unfortunately, this doesn’t quite fit with our beachy theme but I’d love to see the use of semi precious rocks at a wedding in the very near future:

We have a beautiful wax feather stamp that we used for our invitations and I love how this couple used this wax stamp for their place names:

And if you’re having a festival wedding in the woods, then leaf place names are perfect!
