While there are many beautiful venues for tying the knot, there’s nothing quite like a beach wedding. The sea and the sand create a picture-perfect backdrop for your big day.
The soothing sand and crashing waves make for a dramatic setting, but still offer a cool and casual feel. The sea and the sunset takes care of most of the decor for you, but adding nautical accents is a perfect way to compliment the already gorgeous scenery. We love the idea of using driftwood and bottles as centerpieces for an organic feel. For individual place settings, starfish and seashells are the perfect, delicate accents. Be sure to check out these adorable parasol seating cards, courtesy of Martha Stewart Weddings. Pastel colors and aquatic attributes contribute to the peaceful ambiance of the sea. (Not to mention, the pictures will be stunning!)
Unless you’re lucky enugh to live by the sea, a beach wedding is often a destination wedding, meaning that some aspects of planning can be a bit challenging, so research local vendors to minimize transport costs. Opt for directive signs to help guests find the ceremony site. With the right preparation, your beach wedding is sure to be breath taking.
We’d love to know…Would you host a destination wedding?
