Beach Theme Weddings

What's The Buzz All About?

Beach theme weddings are the next big thing, or perhaps they’re the current big thing, it’s hard to tell. Either way, they are incredibly popular at the moment and their popularity is continuing to grow.

It’s great to see because it shows people are looking for unique and exciting ways to get married, and are moving away from the traditional, and sometimes relatively boring, social norms.

That being said, a beach theme wedding doesn’t have to actually be on the beach (it could even be inside), it just makes it extra special if it is. Beach weddings can really show off your sense of style and be a truly unique occasion, but you have to do it right.

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking they can just throw a load of sand to make their wedding “beach-themed”. The problem with this approach, even if your wedding is on the beach, is that sand on its own is surprisingly boring and mundane. You need to spice your sand up with some colour, or ultimately it’ll just look like you haven’t really made the effort.

Sand is also great making patterns and unique designs; it’s incredibly versatile, so use some of that versatility to ensure that your wedding features are created with real zest.

Beach theme weddings aren’t always easy to design for, because you’re going to need to make sure it doesn’t just become one big mess. The best way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to plan and sketch all designing before you actually buy anything, and also to make sure anything you buy won’t be ruined by the weather conditions or the beach setting.

Often it’s a good idea to talk to someone who has planned a beach theme wedding before, because they’ll be able to tell you what worked for them, and more importantly, what didn’t. _________________________________________________________________


When you’re coming up with ideas for your wedding, you’re probably going to think of three main options, tropical, Hawaiian, and Caribbean. You don’t have to go with these, however, and you should definitely think about combining some different styles to create something that will be both unique and memorable. That doesn’t mean just throwing a bunch of ideas together and hoping they work, it means proper planning and trying to create a whole new style that reflects your personality and something that you can be proud of.

Remember, a beach theme wedding doesn’t have to be incredibly beach-orientated, it can be very subtle.

They often suffer because it’s difficult to get everything you need in time in order to create the overall beach-feeling to your wedding. It really depends where you’re having your wedding, of course, but make sure you consider where you are going to buy things from.

For example, people often choose seashells when they are having a wedding on a beach, but you can’t just trust any old shells you find on the beach, you need to order them in advance or pick them out. If you’re ordering from abroad, it’s obviously going to take longer, so make sure you write down a list of everything you are going to need and then tick off that list as you work your way through it.

Beach wedding ideas are hard to come by, but that’s often because no two beach theme weddings are the same. Each one is totally unique because beach theme weddings offer you a chance to have complete freedom over the design of your wedding and the various features that will enhance the setting.

You should try to be as creative as possible during the planning process so that your wedding doesn’t just become bland and boring, but that’s pretty unlikely considering you’re choosing a beach theme wedding! Remember that your wedding, especially on a beach or with a beach theme, is made up of thousands of tiny little things, so try your best to plan for each one of those, and you’ll have a day to remember!
