For the Table, Sailor’s Valentines

Having a beach wedding? Or a ceremony and reception inspired by the sea? Maybe an ocean themed wedding? I’m loving these sea urchin table number holders and place card holders from Eco-Lectic Events.

That’s right, I’m thinking about summertime and not the immediacy of winter. Because all those summertime brides saying their vows in 2011 or even 2012 are already thinking about how they’re going to incorporate the ocean into their wedding ceremonies and receptions. These sea urchin shells – commonly called tests – make pretty, interesting beachy reception decor, even if it’s a little weird to use part of an animal to add color to tables.

So cheers to all the warm-weather, ocean-happy couples – have fun thinking about the sun and the surf! The rest of us will just sit here and freeze, brrrrrr.

Oh, and just curious: What do you ladies and gents think of using cast-offs like tests and sand dollar shells, or things like star fish in wedding decor?

P.S. – Don’t forget to enter to win an adorable “diamond ring” pendant from Polli!

    If the sea urchin and sand dollar shells are genuine cast-offs, I suppose in a way it’s not much different from using things like peacock feathers, and I’ve seen those used to great effect in wedding decor.

    For something like starfish, though, it’s an actual dead animal. So I would probably go with replicas rather than the real thing.

    I actually like the fact that these are all natural and perfect for a beach wedding. Love the colours on them too.
