Are you having a hard time deciding on the type of decorations to use during your destination beach wedding? Here are a few fun tips to help you decide.
Choosing decorations for your destination beach wedding may seem a little overwhelming. There are so many to choose from, and how do you know if you are making the right choice? So many factors need to be considered, such as the wind and tide. If you are having a hard time deciding which decorations to choose for your destination beach wedding because of weather and other factors, consider some of the following ideas.
Use Your Natural Surroundings
Probably the most inexpensive decoration options for your destination beach wedding are your natural surroundings. Use the beach environment to your advantage. For some brides, this is the perfect approach. In fact, the beach’s beauty and scenery is exactly what you may want incorporated into your wedding.
Starfish aisle markers are very unique and they reflect your natural surroundings at the same time. They can be made with ribbon to match the colors of your wedding, and you can find them for a relatively fair price or you can attempt to make your own.
If you want to make your own aisle markers but the starfish idea seems too complicated, you can easily thread seashells onto pretty pieces of string and add fake pearls in between the shells for a more elaborate touch. You will need a drill to make holes within the shells if the holes aren’t already present.
Candle Holders and Torches
If you are planning on having your wedding near sunset, you may want to consider adding candles or torches to the decorations for your destination beach wedding. Tiki torches can often be found and are relatively inexpensive. Just be sure to secure them properly before the wedding to ensure they won’t topple over during the ceremony. You will also want to place them far enough away from guests to avoid any danger if the wind happens to pick up in the evening.
Finally, consider opting for candles to help illuminate your wedding aisle. There are many beach theme shapes available. You may want to consider placing battery operated candles inside of the holders to stop the wind from ruining your light. If secured properly, any of these fun decorations for your destination beach wedding will continue working until the reception is completely over.
