Did you ever notice that the beach is getting more and more popular for weddings? We know a handful of celebrities and socialites who had their dream weddings by the beach. Wedding celebrations nowadays can be as unique as one can imagine. Vibrant beach wedding decorations can help make the dream wedding day of two people in love a reality.
Beach weddings may seem to be very easy to decorate as the decorations can be quite limited. The beach itself can already be a very enticing background of a couple exchanging their vows. However, gracing the venue with some accessories with the beach theme will make the wedding lovelier.
Beach wedding decorations are, in fact, not anymore difficult to source out. Wedding shops and some party favor stores would already have some items such as beach favors in their collection that can be used in a beach-themed party. For someone who is already into wedding planning and decorating for a long time, beach wedding will be such an easy task.
Starting the theme will come from sending out beach wedding invitations, which can be handmade, or purchased online.
Decorating may start from adorning the tables with centerpieces like sea shells in different sizes, shapes and colors. One big sea shell may be used as a cake topper. These shells may be bought from wedding stores that have beach theme in their collection. As an alternative, and a cheaper one at that, these shells may actually be found by the seashore. You may chance up on a lot of different sea shells by just walking along the shore. Of course, make sure to clean these objects before actually using them as decoration pieces.
Complementing the natural look of the surroundings, drift woods may be placed on each corner of the gazebo or covered area where the ceremony will be held. On top or around these drift woods will be some nice flowers and ribbons. Wedding reception decorations that fit the beach theme almost always look unique and stunning at weddings.
Instead of using swags or draperies, it would be more like a beach wedding decoration if fishing net will be used. It can be placed or hung on the wall. Additional sea shells, buoys, or maybe star fishes, may be hung on the net to accessorize it and not look boring. Ropes can be an added as an adornment to the net.
Elegancy is always desired in any wedding. To still have some form of being elegant, pearls may be added to the shells and other beach wedding decorations. If the wedding ceremony and reception are held in a covered area near the beach, surf boards and life rings may also be used as designs by leaning them against the walls. The life rings may also be hung on the wall or door entrance as an alternative.
Beach wedding decorations are relatively easy to find since beach accessories can actually be found at the actual location. You just need to have some wild imagination and creative thinking to determine if the particular beach item can be a valuable piece of adornment during the wedding.
