We are talking about a glamorous celebration that combines the natural beauty of the beach with the happiness of marriage. Imagine how impactful it would be to say “I do” and have the natural beauty of the sea as your background and the sun shining upon you. Lately, we have had a lot of inquiries about a wedding in Greece. With breathtaking sights and countless beaches, it’s one of the top destinations for a wedding. We can help you choose the best location based on your expectations and transform it into reality with just a simple phone call. In this article, we have selected some amazing ideas for a beach wedding. Therefore, it’s time for a beach party!

Colors suitable for a beach wedding

Like other events, a beach wedding has a distinctive color palette that you can use accordingly. Soft, natural colors are the ones to choose from. Sand beige, ivory, or milk grey are the shades that emulate the natural colors of the beach. You can also think about the blue shades, like sky blue, aqua, and turquoise, which will emulate the sea horizon. For an even more stylish approach, add some mint or purple accents.

Flowers suitable for a beach wedding

And the eternal question is: should you have flowers at a beach wedding? And the answer is yes or no. A beach wedding on its own is a spectacular choice. You can underline its beauty with appropriate floral arrangements. One such idea is tropical flowers. We can include tropical flowers like orchids, hibiscus, anthurium, and protea. If you want to go for a minimalist vision, an excellent choice is succulents, as they are resistant and can also withstand heat.

Fabrics and textures

As far as fabrics are concerned, choose soft materials like linen, cotton, and gauze. Transparent fabrics like tulle or chiffon could also create the desired effect. Natural textures like jute or that will bring that rustic vision, which will also remind you of the beach.

Beach wedding lighting

Romance, romance, and some more romance after that. Imagine thousands of tiny lamps glowing all over the entire wedding event. Lighting is a key factor when organizing a wedding, as far as aesthetics and functionality are concerned. To achieve good lighting, you can use nothing more than regular light bulbs. They will bring that “warmth” and romantic sparkle. Another idea is lanterns. Use lanterns of different sizes and styles to add some fine light to the entire wedding. Torches are another option. They will not only light up the area but also bring that tropic vibe. Candles could also be used in different ways. Place them inside decorative glass jars. To achieve an even more exotic atmosphere, start a fire in case that is allowed. A fire could be used as a gathering point for all the guests. Last but not least, use the natural lighting provided by the moon. Plan your beach wedding during the full moon phase, which in itself will create an even more romantic atmosphere.

This is where you can play with details. The presents for the guests could be from sea accessories, like sea shells or a starfish to things like candies. There are too many options to count them all. Another option is a necklace made out of sea shells. If you want to go all in, decorate the wedding with some tropical flowers and starfish.

Candy bar on the beach

A candy bar for a beach wedding should look like a small beach bar. Prepare a vast selection of candies inspired by the beach. Create an area and decorate it with some sea shells and starfish in order to make it more attractive. Use some baskets and cages as decoration. Offer lemonade. Make some fresh lemonade with lots of ice. Offer cocktails. There’s nothing better than an icy cocktail in the warm weather. That will be the wedding that everybody will be talking about for a long, long time.

Wedding dress, accessories, hair style and bouquet

For more than 20 years no one can tell what is the best dress for a beach wedding. What we can advise you is to choose a wedding dress made out of light materials like chiffon, organza or silk. Embrace simplicity and stick with clear and basic designs. However, is that your dream dress? Is that what the bride has in mind? Wedding dresses without straps or with slim straps, spaghetti style, could be extremely appropriate in such cases. The same applies for wedding dresses with an open back. In regards to what shoes you should wear, consider having no shoes or some kind of sandals as this would be the most convenient way for you to move around on the beach. As for your hair style, go for waves or braids with some accessories like pearls. Choose your make up to be light and natural. And last but definitely not least, your bouquet. It should correspond with the decoration and the rest of the theme of the wedding.

What are you waiting for ?

The last thing you can do, to elevate the whole experience even more, is to have fireworks or fire incorporated in the wedding celebration. Create an area for a photo shoot where your guests can take some pictures. Another option is to have a summer bar where you can offer cocktails, which your guests can enjoy after the sunset. To hire a DJ or a band is another amazing opportunity which will definitely move things around. They will make sure that the guests are dancing under the starts. Have the time to leave some sun cream, towels and some umbrellas in an area specially designed for the purpose. That would be appreciated by all attendees.
