The whole idea of a beach wedding and getting married by the sea is appealing to many couples. If you are the one looking for some beach wedding style inspiration, then you have come to the right place.
Everything is possible on the beach. The style varies from bohemian to classy and casual. There are no strict limits when you decide to get married in the summer. However, pay attention to these things when planning out your beach-style wedding:
- Avoid the hottest time of the day
- Consider the wind, especially if you will have decorations or candles
- Make sure guests are well hydrated and protected from the sun
- Have a plan B if the rain starts
Otherwise, you can be sure your beach wedding will be memorable for both you and your guests. We have gathered some inspiration about decor, style, and wedding dresses for you to check out.
Bold Centerpiece Colors
A mix of Mediterranean vibe, relaxed style, and vivid colors are a perfect idea for your beach wedding table centerpiece. You can combine wildflowers with peonies, roses, and greenery. Don’t hesitate to add fruit.
Use Palm Leaves
You are getting married at the beach, so why don’t you use palm tree leaves as part of the decor. You can use fresh or dried leaves. If you opt for dried ones, you can even ask your decorators to color them. That is how you will get some boho vibes.
Boho Chic Vibes
No matter the year, beach weddings and boho vibes simply go hand in hand. If you want some of those vibes on your wedding day, add ratan, amber-toned glassware, rustic cloths, and metallic hues.
Short Beach Wedding Dress
This year, don’t be afraid to cut off the wedding dress length. It is completely fine to show off your legs on the beach! Also, it is convenient as well. You can combine a knee-length dress with flat sandals or even – flip-flops!
Ocean Inspired Cake
Classic cakes just don’t match with the beach wedding style. Don’t despair! We have found an amazing idea that can be incorporated into your beach-style wedding. Instead of creamy tops, make your cake look like ocean waves, add shells, corals in hints of gold and blues.
Bohemian Wedding Attire
A wrap-cut wedding dress might sound like an unusual choice, but also it brings some boho vibes. The high slit is perfect for letting your skin breathe on a hot summer day. This is one of those dresses that can be combined with both heels and flats. For even more boho vibes, add a floral wreath to your head.
Cozy is the New Formal
Informal vibes on the beach weddings are totally allowed. You can opt to put cozy pillows and create a lounge area where your guests will sit, but not get too sandy. This is an amazing way of connecting your guests, still not ruining the beach surrounding with unnecessary decorations.
Your guests can act differently at the beach. Some don’t have a problem with sand and come prepared with an extra pair of shoes. For others, you can make a station where they can use flip-flops, towels, or sunglasses. Put these things in woven beach baskets and let your guests know they can use them before the reception!
The Aisle Decor
When it comes to aisle decoration, you need something that won’t hide the beach and the ocean. That water backdrop simply can’t be distracted with a huge garland. However, we have found an amazing solution. You can use a low-to-the-ground design, with a lot of greenery, dry woods, and delicate white flowers.
Ocean Blue Hues
If you are not into bright and vivid colors, then pick ocean blue and cool tones for your wedding decorations. This will match with the scenery, making everything look very classy and elegant. If that is the vibe you want to achieve, then make sure to use greys, blues, and emeralds.
