- Decorated rocks
Rocks may not seem like the best choice for beach wedding favors. However, if you are skilled with a paint brush and you decorate them properly, they can look very cute and stylish.

Making candles is a very simple and fun DIY project. Seashell candles are probably the most popular beach wedding themes.
