A winter destination beach wedding sounds like an oxymoron, but many brides choose to marry in the winter at a faraway beach location. If you’re tying the knot in the winter on a beach somewhere, here are some decor ideas to tie in the environment and the essence of the winter season into your decor.
Decor ideas for winter destination beach weddings are always interesting. They are kind of like the pink flamingo Christmas decorations you see in Florida—strange and seemingly out of place. However, not all decor ideas for winter destination beach weddings are as tacky, and they don’t have to be. If you don’t mind getting creative, there are plenty of wedding decor ideas to utilize for your winter destination beach wedding that embrace your tropical ceremony surroundings but still have a touch of class.
Here are some simple decor ideas for any destination beach wedding:
Whimsical sea glass accents—Have you ever seen sea glass and the beautiful shapes it can take on? Many artists make sea glass ornaments, keepsakes, decorations, and much more. Look for sea glass knickknacks that can be used for wedding favors and place them with your place settings. You can find all kinds of designs that are made with silver, white, gold, or light blue colors to blend well with the winter and beach themes that surround your occasion.
Beach-inspired touches with winter wonderland flair—Just because you choose beach-inspired centerpieces, favors, or floral arrangements doesn’t mean those pieces can’t be full of winter wonderland flair. For example, try silver, cool blue, or crystal starfish paperweights for wedding favors, which can double as reception table decor. You can also incorporate seashell Christmas ornaments by hanging them with your chandeliers or tent overhang.
Flowers that complement the winter season. Don’t forget to ask your florist about flower options for your cake topper and arrangements that have complementary winter colors. Your florist can help you choose flowers for your decor that will blend well with both your decor and the season you’re getting married in. Consulting with a professional florist and your coordinator is an excellent place to start to come up with decor ideas for a winter destination beach wedding.
