Beach weddings are a classic venue that will never go out of style. Here are a few tips for creating the perfect beach wedding.
For your ceremony add shell accents to your pearl studded ring pillow and garter. Also, in lieu of a unity candle ceremony, a sand unity ceremony is the perfect finishing touch.
Complement your theme at your reception with the lovely porcelain starfish cake topper shown below. Add simple touches like beach themed toasting glasses, and natural shell place card holders. Give your guests gel candles with sea shells and starfish inside so they can feel like they are taking a bit of the ocean home with them. Other favor ideas include sand art in small bottles, treasure chests full of pretty candy, and sea shell shaped soaps.
For a fresh take on beach weddings, my imagination has been whisked away by the fairy tale wedding trend and I am inspired by stories of mermaids in glamorous tiaras and strands of pearls. Apparently I'm not the only one, even Alfred Angelo has designed the mermaid gown below based on Disney's "Little Mermaid." The playfully trumpeted skirt and form fitting bodice help create this more sophisticated princess look. Add finishing touches with mutliple strands of pearls and long flowing hair with sea inspired hair pieces.
