Planning a beach themed bridal shower? You’ve come to the right place, because this beachy, summertime inspo is EXACTLY what you need to plan the perfect event.
Jacquelyn Kazas of Beijos Events says, “Throwing a bridal shower is always fun, especially one at the beach! The theme was ‘Here Comes the Sun’, and I can’t think of a more picturesque spot as our setting.” We couldn’t agree more!
Whimsical, vibrant floral arrangements by Not Just in Novels, delicious canned cocktails from Two Chicks, the coziest floor seating, and the beachside sunshine all made this beach themed bridal shower the ultimate event. Jessica Lynn Photo did an incredible job capturing it all.

Tips + Ideas for Throwing the Ultimate Beach Themed Bridal Shower
Want to throw your own gorgeous beach themed bridal shower? The team that put together this shower is sharing some of their best advice and ideas for planning your own!
Embrace the Beach Theme
Jacquelyn says, “I always love to have a theme to base my design around and in this case being on the beach we knew “Here comes the Sun” was perfect! It’s great to have something to go off of when choosing colors and details, so a fun catch phrase or theme is always helpful!”
Elevate Your Beach Themed Bridal Shower Decorations with Florals
“Often times I see clients who don’t want to go too big on flowers – I just have to say, flowers MAKE the event! Go big or go home!”, says Jacquelyn. We absolutely agree! If you’re looking to elevate your beach themed bridal shower decorations, stunning floral arrangements are the way to go!
And Not Just in Novels did an incredible job on the ones in this shower. So fun, colorful, and perfect for the beach!
How adorable is this beach themed invitation suite from Poppy Jack Shop?! We love the colorful, vibrant theme and how the “Here Comes the Sun” theme was tastefully incorporated with the design. How cute is that sun necklace and sunrise name plate?!
Beach Themed Bridal Shower Decorations
We’re smitten with the beach themed bridal shower decorations here! The floor pillows and low-rise tables give a casual feel, which is perfect for the location! And that stunning backdrop from West and Rose creates a private, cozy moment on the beach. Not to mention, it’s the perfect backdrop for photos!
Jacquelyn says, “This crew was tight knit and wanted something intimate, that’s why we went with a lower casual seating arrangement. It allowed them to mingle and chat together instead of something to formal and far apart. Plus, when you’re on the sand you gotta get your feet in it!!”
We’re pretty sure they nailed the look. These are seriously the cutest beach themed bridal shower decorations!
We can’t get over how fun and vibrant this decor is. The gold flatware goes perfectly with the “Here Comes the Sun” theme. The pastel pink plates and sunrise name cards are so playful, and the fringe linen napkins are such a nice and elegant touch.
What’s a beach themed bridal shower without some summery drinks? We love these boozy snow cones, spiked with Two Chicks cocktails. So creative!
The Ultimate Beach Themed Bridal Shower Food + Drinks
Don’t forget to include yummy food and drinks for your event. For the beach, we love the idea of chilled or frozen drinks and zesty summery food with a fresh vibe!
The delicious spread of food at this shower was TO DIE FOR. Our mouths are watering! And how cute are the boozy snow cones?! We love that the food and drinks for this shower totally matched the vibe of the location.
Don’t Forget to Gift Your Bridesmaids!
Personalized favors are such a fun way to say thank you to your girl squad.
We especially love the attention to detail with these adorable gift bags for each of the bridesmaids! The personalized candle and coconut sugar scrub are the perfect little additions for a beach themed bridal shower!
