Whether you’re tying the knot just steps from the ocean or simply have a deep love of all things nautical, there are tons of beach-inspired details that you can add to your wedding that will feel thematic, but won’t leave your day feeling themed.
A beach wedding is a great way to create a relaxed, casual, and holiday-like atmosphere for your wedding and bring your friends and family together for a weekend getaway.
There is nothing like dancing barefoot under the stars, sand between your toes, and the rhythmic sound of the waves in the background. What better way to celebrate your love? Saying ‘I do’ on a breathtaking beach will make any planning pains worth it.
The idea of a beach wedding, or at least a bash bursting with coastal accoutrements, is appealing to plenty of couples, and the aesthetic lends itself to any interpretation whether styles run from boho to elegant to exotic to minimal to downright chic.
Everything is possible on the beach. If you are planning to have a beach wedding, visit this site. The sky’s the limit!
Bamboo and layers of lush, leafy greenery create a tropical gateway into the beach nuptials of your dreams. Beachy is a great style that will make your guests feel at home in a laid-back environment. It can be elegant and sophisticated without being imposed and it can be replicated in closed spaces.
Consider incorporating natural elements and textures such as wood, natural fibres, leaves, organic-shaped accents, and neutral colours. A mixed variety of palm leaves, white lilies, white ginger, and bougainvillea outfit this dreamy doorway.
Shell Themed Cake
The confectionary pièce de résistance of your big day is no place to skimp on the seaside details. This stunning design shows that delicate shells are the perfect beach-inspired accent for your wedding cake.
Bold, juicy colours are the key to vibrant festivities. Here, bare wooden tables lay flush with centrepieces of vivacious florals and ripe, citrus flourishes for a relaxed Mediterranean vibe that is literally good enough to eat. An assortment of candles in various sizes provides a warm glow to what will surely be a night of intimate conversation and memorable revelry.
The great thing about palm leaves is that they’re absolutely huge and pretty durable, making them easy to decorate with. Tie them to chair backs for some DIY chair décor, use them as chargers beneath place settings, or flip the notion and place them atop white plates.
Sea-inspired invitation suites will undoubtedly get your guests excited for the upcoming bash. These fun invites allude to the beach venue and hint at the colourful ’60s theme of the festivities.
Provide a spot for guests to drop their shoes at your oceanfront nuptials. A shoe valet, like this one with a custom sign, tells guests exactly where to leave their footwear. They can either trade heels for flip-flops or attend the sandy ceremony barefoot.
Boho Table Setting
Bohemian details feel right at home for beachside weddings. We’re totally obsessed with the distressed white paint paired with these incredible straw chargers. Amber-toned glassware, stoneware plates, gilded metallic accents, and a sheer, rust-hued runner complete the aesthetic.
Tropical Setting Chart
An acrylic seating chart is about as versatile as it gets. It seamlessly blends into any background and can be used to display existing wedding décor. Here, it takes on all the glory of nature set on a canvas of green leaves.
A Glamorous Setup
Beachy, but make it glam—because not all seaside fêtes are boho and relaxed or nautical in navy. This ballroom celebration was brimming with all the tropical grandeur. Linens of black-and-white palm prints, magnificent palm centrepieces, black accents, and gold flourishes delivered on the drama.
What’s a beach theme without coconuts? Go all out and treat your guests to delicious signature cocktails, or keep it real with coconut water, served in coconuts engraved with your names, the wedding date, or a hashtag. Bonus: They make for the best photo prop.
Go On Local Fruits
Go local! Give a nod to your carefully-chosen locale by using local flora or even fruits in your décor. This deliciously tropical tablescape is flush with pineapples and papayas that deftly blend with the ivory blooms, straw chargers, and palm-leaf accents.
