If you have always dreamed of a beach wedding, then you already have a few beach wedding ideas in mind. While a beach wedding provides you with plenty of romantic atmospheres, scenery, and its own decor, you probably would like to add a few of your own ideas to the wedding as well. Whether it’s a gorgeous table setting or ocean blue colors throughout your theme, there are some great beach wedding ideas out there to choose from.
A Beach Table Setting
Wooden chairs set up around long tables draped in long white table cloths are the perfect setting for a beach reception. Make sure to use beach colors for the table settings themselves and add some string lights to bathe the table in a soft glow. This is the perfect complement to any wedding reception held on the beach.
Ocean Blue Wedding Theme
Instead, of decorating with the common seashells and anchors, try putting just a suitable hint of ocean blue color in your wedding theme instead. This can be accomplished with everything from the cake to the napkins and invitations you send out to your guests and will give the event a romantic look as well.
Chalk Board Guest Book
Why have the traditional, yet often boring guest book laid out for your guests to sign, when you can go with something totally different? Drape an ocean blue sheet over a table and have a chalk board set up with a message to drop any messages they like into a bottle set up in front of the chalk board. This is fun and will look great in your guest book a year later when you open the bottle on your anniversary.
Wicker Basket for Shoes
It’s a beach wedding, isn’t it? Then who is going to want to wear heels and shoes? Instead, of having your guests kick off their shoes and leave them laying in the sand, create a shoe station with a nice wicker basket to put shoes in so that your guests can feel the sand on their toes and still find their shoes when they head for home later that night.
First Christmas Ornament
When it comes to favorite memories from your beach wedding, this one has to top the list. Take some of the sand from the beach you are married on and have it made into your first Christmas ornament as a married couple. It might be a little cheesy, but it’s cute!
In keeping with the wedding beach theme, instead of giving the same old, same old favors to the guests, try wrapping up a few beach towels in twine with a gift tag and give those instead. After all, who can’t use a few new beach towels to add to their beach collection?
These are just a few of the top beach wedding ideas to help you plan the beach wedding of your dreams. From wedding favors that aren’t all that traditional to choosing ocean blues colors for your beach wedding theme, these ideas will ensure that your beach wedding is one that will be fondly remembered for many years to come.
