BEACH WEDDING IDEAS PERFECT FOR YOUR BIG DAY
Many couples are drawn to the idea of a beach wedding, or at least a party replete with coastal accouterments. With styles ranging from boho to elegant, exotic to simple, casual to downright chic, the aesthetic lends itself to a wide range of interpretations.
"On the beach, anything is possible. The sky's the limit, as they say, "Gwen Grosset, a destination wedding designer, agrees. "Nothing beats dancing barefoot under the stars with sand between your toes and the waves crashing in the backdrop. What better way to commemorate your love than with a romantic dinner?"
1. A LUSH ENTRYWAY
Bamboo and layers of thick, leafy flora make a tropical entrance to your fantasy beach wedding. "Think about incorporating natural elements and textures like wood, natural fibers, leaves, organic-shaped accents, and neutral colors," suggests Grosset.
2. SHELLS ON YOUR CAKE
Your big day's confectionary pièce de résistance is not the place to skimp on the seaside details. Delicate shells are the perfect beach-inspired addition for any cutting cake or wedding cake, as shown in this wonderfully simple design.
3. A JUICY CENTERPIECE DISPLAY
The secret to bright celebrations is bold, vivid colors. Bare wooden tables are flush with centerpieces of vibrant florals and ripe citrus for a relaxed Mediterranean vibe that is literally good enough to eat, while an assortment of candles in various sizes provides a warm glow.
4. A SEA-INSPIRED INVITATION SUITE
Sea-themed invites will definitely pique your visitors' interest in the approaching celebration. The bright '60s motif is hinted at in these playful invites, which allude to the beach site.
5. A SHOE VALET
At your beach wedding, provide a place for guests to leave their shoes. A shoe valet, such as this one with a unique sign, directs guests to where they should leave their shoes. They can wear flip-flops instead of heels or go barefoot at the sand ceremony.
6. A BEACHY BOUQUET
For a wedding in the woods, a bouquet of greens and neutral-toned blooms is ideal, and you can add palm leaves for an instant beachy upgrade. For her boho beach wedding in Mexico, this bride used white king protea, eucalyptus, palms, and white flowers like orchids and anthurium.
7. AQUATIC AISLE DECOR
Submerge your ceremony with a shaft ornamented with vivid coral, textured grass, dried flora, sea glass vases, and occasionally cactus in all the trappings of the underwater finery for a good deal. This is a scene appropriate for a mermaid bride.
8. TROPICAL DRINKS
What's a beach theme if there aren't coconuts? Go all out to treat your guests to delectable drinks with signatures or keep it true with cocoon water, served with named coconuts, the wedding date, or a hashtag. Bonus: They are making the best photo advertising.
9. WOVEN BASKET LANTERNS
Woven snacks with a beach theme are a certain win. These lovely basket lamps complement the ambiance and preserve the airiness of the clear tent from becoming too heavy.
10. LOCAL FRUITS AND BLOOMS
Consider staying close to home! Give your smart location a nod with local flora and fruit in your decor. This tablescape is filled with pineapples and papayas which mix delicately with ivory blossoms, straw loaders, and palm leaf accents.
11. SEA INSPIRED TABLEWARE
Choose crockery that is inspired by the sea. For their Nantucket wedding, these couples used plates with a starfish and seashell motif. They continued the concept with identically made menus and origami sailboat place cards.
12. PALM LEAF TABLE MARKERS
Tropical leaves are a great way to add some beach vibes to your day without breaking the bank. You could use the same approach for place cards, seating charts, or even menus by using palm leaf blades to differentiate tables by name. All you need is a gold pen and some neat calligraphy.
