What’s even better than a beautiful beach and a sunny day? A glowing lovely bride as your subject! Amanda truly outshined the waves, the beach, and the sky with her amazing smiles as she posed in front of the cam wearing her beautiful wedding gown. I love how versatile she is when it came to her poses, she went from being adorable to “Vogue” in just a matter of few pictures. Her and her album can truly serve as an inspiration if ever you’re looking to have a bridal shoot of your own.
Are you still wondering how to wear your makeup for your 2015 beach wedding? Well we have some great ideas for you today. Check out these amazing looks that are perfect for an elegant, gorgeous beach wedding:
The Glowing Bride
We love this look because it’s elegant and beautiful, but still appropriate for outdoors. A darker shade has been used across the eye, with a slightly shimmering highlighter just under the brows. Highlighter has also been added to the cheekbones, as well as a warm blush shade. The lips are nude, with just a sheen of gloss. The overall look is beautiful!
Pretty in Pink
This is such a warm, girlish look that is really charming. The top eyelids have been lined and a small amount of dark shadow has been added just above the lash line on the top lid. A warm brown eyeliner is added to the lower lid. Fresh pink blush has been added to the cheeks and a flattering pink lip color sets off the look. Overall, this is a beautiful and youthful look.
The Natural Look
If you want to keep it more natural, this is a wonderful look for highlighting your best features. The eyes have been lined in a soft coal eyeliner, and the eyeshadow is a nude color with a slight shimmer. A very light pink tint has been added to the lips as well as a gloss, and a warm pink blush highlights the cheeks.
This look is absolutely perfect for women with darker skin. A black eyeshadow is applied to make the eyes look bigger and softer – it is applied to the top eyelid and just under the lash line on the bottom lid. Virtually any color lipstick can be worn but we love the wine-color used in this example. It’s dramatic and beautiful without being overdone – perfect for a beach wedding.
These looks are absolutely stunning and very versatile – they will work well for the outdoor ceremony and transition perfectly over to the indoor reception. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!

Most brides typically give their bridesmaids a gift aside from the wedding favors, as a special ‘thank you’ for everything they do. From attending dress fittings to supporting the bride in all her planning endeavors, these are the girls that are there for the bride through thick and thin. For a beach wedding, it’s fun to give the bridesmaids a beach-related gift. We’ve highlighted several great beach wedding bridesmaids’ gift belows
Beach-Themed Guest Towels
Beautiful beach-themed guest towels make a great gift for a bridesmaid, and will be used long after the wedding is over. They can be placed in a guest bathroom to add a bit of color and convenience! It’s a gift a bridesmaid is sure to love.
Beach Gel Candles
Beach gel candles are a wonderful gift for bridesmaids, and will bring back fond memories of your wedding day. There are many different varieties, included scented and non-scented candles, but they’re all so pretty that your bridesmaids may find it difficult to burn them!
Every girl loves jewelry, and whimsical beach-themed jewelry is a great thank you gift for a bridesmaid. Whether it’s a charming starfish necklace or a charm bracelet with sea-inspired charms, you can bet that this gift will be a winner
Ocean-Inspired Compact Mirrors
A compact mirror is something every girl can use every day. One that is ocean-inspired is a wonderful way to say ‘thank you,’ and incorporate the beach wedding theme. We love this one, a very glam clam.
What’s more perfect for a thank-you gift than a personalized beach tote? You can even fill it with fun items like cute flip flops, after-sun lotion and towels.
