Livening Beach Weddings
The invitations : These can be used creatively to arouse the anxiety among the invited guests. Choosing a color that is reminiscent of the sea can be a great prelude to the great day as it will excite guests especially those who haven’t had a chance to be at the beach. You can even choose peculiar designs for the envelopes such as the star fish which will definitely hint that the occasion will be at the beach or include a postcard with couple by the shore to make it even more authentic. Another trick is to put white sand in each of the invitation to help set the theme of your wedding.
· Beach decorations : Try as much as possible to utilize beach themed accessories for all likely uses. For example, charms of sandals can be used for wine and champagne glasses while the chairs and tables can be decorated with string garlands of shells or coral between them. The candles used should also give tropical fruits’ scents to make the scene even more realistic. Beach weddings decorations can also be borrowed from surf boards, oars and other paraphernalia common by the seaside.
· Wedding attire : Beach colors should form the bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s garments to avoid contrast with the beach. You can wear printed shirts that are common on the beaches as they complement the theme. For the bride’s gown, white is still the color of choice but if she is daring, the prints can also work great. Foot wear is optional though sandals can be worn by everyone.
· Menu and wedding cake : The menu in beach weddings should include sea food which is readily available while popular sea side drinks such as coconut water and cold beer can be served. The wedding cake design should capture the theme and can take a sand castle or even a ship’s shape. The toppers can include sea horses, star fishes or nay other innovative things from the beach. For the music, choose genres such as Caribbean to fall in tune with the fun that’s commonly associated with the beach or any such varieties.
