You may think that simply hosting your wedding ocean-side is enough to create a beach wedding that people will remember. While your guests are bound to love celebrating your special day with you regardless, some extra attention to details will make it the beach wedding people can not stop talking about! The most memorable weddings have a strong, central vision that guides the direction and impact of the entire event. The best way to accomplish this is to first consider how the wedding should reflect your personal style, and then to incorporate beach-themed decor in a manner that is cohesive and strategically placed.
1. Determine how your wedding will reflect your personality & style
Before you dive in and focus on the seaside theme completely, take a minute to get clear on your own personal style. Once you’ve determined what your own personal style is, you can use this to set the tone for your wedding decor. This may seem like an arbitrary step, but remember, this is the key to unlocking a uniquely styled wedding and avoiding that cookie-cutter feel.
2. Choose your colors
Choosing a specific set of colors for your wedding is not just a ritual – it actually goes a long way to creating a coherent look and feel to your entire event. You may choose to have a mostly neutral backdrop with flashes of color. This is something that works especially well at the beach with the neutral tone of sand. For instance, you might choose a neutral container such as a tin planter for flowers, but opt for colorful flowers and bright napkins. Remember that no detail is too small. Common color choices for beach themed weddings are blue with silver or gold, and a pale peach accent.

3. Start with your lighting
Once you’ve decided on your overall tone and color choices, begin with the lighting. Opt for fun options such as candle-filled lanterns, paper lanterns, excessive amounts of votive candles or round-bulb light strings.

4. Decide on flowers and where they will be placed
Once you have your lighting figured out, you can decide on your floral arrangements. Remember to keep the two in balance. You do not want to feel like the flowers are competing with the lighting, or vice versa. And remember, the vases you use are decorations too. White porcelain vases or square glass vases are ideal options for a beach wedding.

5. Add in decorative knick-knacks
This may seem like an afterthought, but do not let its concluding placement fool you. These seemingly extra decorative pieces are the things that will truly lend depth and character to your event space. This is your opportunity to get creative and surprise people with delightful little touches.
