10 Ideas For Beach Weddings

10 Best Ideas For Beach Weddings

With white-sand beaches, breathtaking views, and majestic sunsets it’s no wonder that more brides than ever are opting for a destination wedding. Think about it, instead of limiting yourself to one night of celebrating, you can revel in the excitement with your nearest and dearest for an entire weekend! Ready to pack your bags? We’re sharing 10 new ideas for your beach wedding. Here’s how to think outside of the seashell. 

1. Keep it simple. You really can’t beat a backdrop of sparkling turquoise water, so for your wedding ceremony let the ocean do the talking. For your wedding arbor we love a wooden frame draped in soft gauzy fabric that billows in the wind.Alex Michele Photography

2. Oceanic accents. Give a nod to your seaside destination with a few coastal touches. Starfish, seashells and driftwood tie the theme together swimmingly.Island Bliss Weddings

3. Barefoot sandals. While sandy beaches are beautiful to look at, they aren’t exactly high heel friendly. Instead, add a touch of sparkle (and a lot of comfort) with crystal barefoot sandals. Maria Angela Photography

4. Light it up. Everything looks better in candlelight and a beach wedding is no exception. Hurricane lanterns and pillar candles will cast your décor in a mesmerizing glow.KT Merry PhotographyKT Merry Photography

5. Let them lounge. Modern wedding lounges can completely transform a reception from ordinary to fabulous. A lounge creates an intimate space where guests can relax, drink delicious cocktails and mingle into the early morning hours.Colin Cowie CelebrationsColin Cowie Celebrations

6. Coral centerpieces. Real or faux coral, with its striking silhouette, is a stunning conversation starter for your reception tables.Colin Cowie Celebrations

7. Shoe station. Excuse us for repeating ourselves, but sand and high heels just don’t mix. Set up a shoe station where guests can kick off their shoes and feel the sand between their toes.Aislinn Kate Photography

8. Seaside send-off. Thank your guests in style with beach themed wedding favors. Sunglasses can be used to shield guest’s eyes at the ceremony and on future vacations to come!Jemma Keech Photography

9. Stay natural. For a sweet finale, highlight the beauty of the setting. For your wedding dessert think of the calming colors of the sand, stones, grass and water.Zev Fisher Photography
