More Beach Theme Decorations
Sometimes the true magic of a wedding is not all about the perfect setting, venue or the large arrangements, but instead it is found in the small details that reflect the personalities and style of the bride and groom. The little things that make your wedding uniquely yours. Perhaps you already know that you want to make your own handmade shell napkin rings, or that your wedding favors will reflect your tendency towards green living. But if you don't have a clear idea, finding those small personal touches to add to your beach theme decorations should be a fun part of your wedding planning.
Below we list a few small ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
Instead of having a traditional ring pillow at your beach wedding ceremony, why not use two beautiful shells to hold your rings? Just make sure to fill the shell cavity with tissue paper, cotton wool or even sand to ensure that the rings are displayed at the entrance of the shells and do not fall inside. A beautiful clam shell will also be lovely and can include as small pillow to tie the rings to.
Have a few small umbrellas or parasols in a neutral color or your wedding colors in umbrella holders at the entrance to the ceremony. Paper parasols are inexpensive and lovely or even lace parasols can also look very pretty if they will suit your overall look better. They don't just serve a purpose, they also look very nice on your photos!
If your beach wedding ceremony is at sunset, then make sure you have some sort of lighting like string lights, tiki torches or luminaries to light the area and to lead your guests back to their cars or to the toilets. These also add a nice ambiance to your overall beach theme decorations. For the budget conscious, luminaries will probably be the best bet as these can be made from simple brown or white paper bags, simple candle sticks and sand.
If you wanted to use unity candles at your ceremony, but are rethinking because of a possible breeze then why not try a Sand Ceremony instead?
This is a contemporary twist to this wedding tradition that is just the special touch you are looking for in your beach wedding ceremony decor. You can coordinate the sand with your wedding colors and can even involve your parents or your children (if you have any from before the wedding or from a previous union). It also makes a very nice keepsake from your wedding day.
