Beach Wedding Ideas


If you're heading to the ocean for your nuptials, some beach wedding ideas are in order! For starters, I already made a beachy collage in my August wedding ideas section, but hey, you can never get enough ocean inspiration. For the first collage, I'll go with a nautical theme in traditional colors of navy, silver, and white.

Nautical Wedding Ideas

The beautiful-yet-simple dress is from Provonias, which looks great for beach wedding ideas.

The navy bridesmaid dress is from David's Bridal.

The engraved compass would make a great gift for the groomsmen, and I used the image from The Compass Company.

Consider using maritime flags to decorate. They're a little hard to find, but you should be able to find something on Ebay.

The silk scarf is from Zia Moda, which I adore as an accessory.

For cake, you should be able to get a sandcastle style design.

For a venue space, look to marinas if not an actual boat.

Ocean Wedding Theme

This theme has colors of teal, yellow, and lime green.

The dress is from Renella De Fina Couture: the flowing gown is great for an ocean wedding theme idea.

The bridesmaid dress is also David's Bridal.

I like the monogrammed tote filled with sandals, sunscreen, and a beach towel as a gift to your bridesmaids for one beach wedding idea. This one is from Gracious Bridal.

To really heighten the lime accents, use actual limes in beverages, cakes, and centerpieces. The same is true using fresh tropical fruits like pineapples and mangos for drinks. If you can, go with seafood for the main course.

Lastly, consider a sand ceremony. No better place or time than the beach! Instead of lighting a unity candle, you each pour colored sand into a glass to form a unique design. The jar can be saved for years, and you can use any color. Kits are available, but since it's just colored sand and glass it's not difficult at all to make one yourself.

Kits are sold at online outlets like Beau Coup here.

Beach and Nautical Shoppe

I was surprised at the number of pretty cute favors out there. Most favors I think, "wait, I'm supposed to be pay that much? For... an ugly box? Yeah no." These, I think, can work really well for a nautical theme. Many of these you might be able to make yourself, like the sand ceremony and customized shells. It's worth a look for some inspiration. If you see anything you like, though, click on the picture and you'll be taken to the site where you can snag it.

Consider using a yacht to rent for the venue.

SO many wedding favors are available related to the beach. I got these from My Wedding Favors.

I like the playfulness of these other favors from My Wedding Favors, especially the sea glass luminaries.

If you love tropical fish and the underwater realm, consider having your wedding reception inside an aquarium.
