The beauty of a beach wedding is that the natural environment provides much of the decoration. You can keep things simple by using driftwood, seashells, and beach grasses as accents. For more substantial decorations, consider using beach-themed elements like anchors, buoys, and ropes. You could also use bright beach towels as tablecloths or use a mix of lanterns and fairy lights to create a cozy, beachy vibe.
For a beach wedding, the table setting should be casual and relaxed, yet still elegant. Use a neutral-colored tablecloth to complement the natural surroundings and add colorful accents like beach-inspired napkins and sea glass votive candle holders. Consider using coral, starfish, or shell-shaped plates for an extra beachy touch. Finish off the table setting with a stunning centerpiece featuring beach-inspired elements like seashells, driftwood, and succulents.
For a beach wedding, a fresh, light menu is the way to go. Consider serving up fresh seafood like grilled shrimp, oysters, or ceviche. For non-seafood lovers, try a delicious barbecue with grilled chicken, steak, and vegetables. Add some fresh fruits, salads, and a variety of sides to complement the main course. For dessert, consider serving up beach-themed treats like cupcakes with seashell toppers or a beach-themed cake.
Make sure you have plenty of shade options for guests to cool off during the event. You can use beach umbrellas, or even set up a tent or canopy for added shade. Don't forget to provide plenty of water and other beverages to keep guests hydrated during the ceremony and reception. And last but not least, make sure to provide plenty of entertainment for guests, like beach games or a live band to get everyone up and dancing.
A beach wedding party is a beautiful and romantic way to celebrate your big day. Use this invitation as inspiration to create a laid-back, yet elegant beach celebration. Remember to incorporate beachy elements, serve up fresh seafood and light menu items, and provide plenty of shade and entertainment for guests. With these tips, your beach wedding party is sure to be an unforgettable celebration!
