Many bride-to-be dreamed of having a beach wedding. There is always a sense of romance on a sun setting at the horizon while the sound of waves splashes gently on the shore. A beach wedding theme is one of the most popular theme for couples planning to marry. Many famous Hollywood celebrities celebrate their rites on a beach and Renee Zellewegger when she and Kenny Chesney tied the knot.
Many women would want to know the design ideas that will complement a beach wedding theme. Things that women should keep in mind is that the gown, table decorations, invitation, keepsake, shoes, entourage, program, menu should all complement each other in order to complete the perfect beach wedding theme.
The good thing about a beach set up is you don’t have to wear anything fancy. Choose fabric that is light weight such as satins, silks and chiffons in colors like white, off-white, light green or blue, white, lime, and yellow.
Most of beach dresses have length that is just above the knee, this is advisable if you have long legs. For shorter legs choose a full size straight dress that will emphasize your torso.
For your venue decorations you could add a canopy made of rattan or bamboo poles with white gauze drapery. For your table setting you could use a galvanized vase or thick bamboo with sunflowers, plumerias, saltwater taffy or orchids, brown rice stalks and long slender leaves. At the bottom of the galvanized vase you could adorn it with sand and seashells. Use thin bamboo as stand for your place cards and insert a pen into a bamboo for your guestbook.
Music and Ambiance
Play reggae music and use live instruments like bongo and bamboo flute. If it is getting dark the venue should be lighted with bamboo torch that are evenly spread out across the venue for optimal lighting.
Invitations and Keepsake
For your wedding invitation idea you could use a weathered paper and scroll it. A bamboo stick or abaca rope can keep the paper from opening then insert a stem of orchid plant or glue a seashell unto it. Another great idea is to have your photos taken on a beach with words “I hope you could be here with us” and have it printed by a magnet wedding invitation company. For your wedding keepsake you could use a small glass bottle filled with beach sand and colorful beads, hung a string of abaca rope with a small seashell and a printed paper of the details of your event.
