What is dreamier than a beach wedding? For so many, beach side weddings are the ultimate dream nuptials. Whether your beach oceanside wedding is also a destination wedding for all or in close driving distance from where you live, there are some wedding decor must-haves you'll want at the beach.
When you're planning a beach wedding you aren't tied to bright teal and coral color palettes, but they're welcomed if you love them! It's very possible to create a sophisticated beach wedding with chic beach themed decor.
You know we love our waterfront wedding around here, don't miss our best ideas and inspiration for lakeside weddings.
For today's Garter Girl Loves post, we're sharing our favorite finds for beach wedding ideas and decor.
If you're getting married at the beach, will you invite us?? Just kidding (not really!) Here are our best tips and advice for getting married on the beach and planning an oceanside wedding...
Unique textures in neutral hues add to a beautiful beach side ambiance. Raffia placemats and gauze or chiffon table runners are some of our favorite beach wedding table decor ideas.
Lean into the ocean as inspiration for your beach wedding. Consider using other natural elements throughout your wedding decor. A great option...sea glass! Perfect for escort cards, table numbers or even just decor to add to the wedding tables.
For beach wedding bridal fashion we love a beautiful wedding gown with lace. Boho style bridal fashion often lends well to a beach side reception as well. For bridal accessories, this is the time for your chic starfish bridal jewelry and we would love a classic white lace bridal garter with a light blue stripe for a chic wedding heirloom.
Beach weddings lend themselves perfectly to the neutral color palettes like tans and beiges to mirror the beach sand, and shades of blue for the ocean and the sky. But, if you're having a beach wedding with all of those beachy, nautical neutral hues, don't be affraid to add in a little fun pop of color. Consider using a bright burst of orange, yellow or hot pink for your beach wedding.
Our top tip for planning a beach wedding...choose your tropical or beach motifs sparingly. If you love the tropical palm leaves, you'll definitely want to use them in your beach wedding, but for a sophisticated style be sure to use the tropical motif appropriately and don't overwhelm your guests with too many palm leaves!
Starting with wedding invitations to start your wedding experience, to beach directional signs to help your guests enjoy your reception to beach gifts and favors, you'll love these beach wedding ideas all found on Etsy...
With love, The Garter Girl
