Decorating beach weddings is a lot more “complicated” than some might imagine. Of course, if one solely focuses on a wedding theme, that shouldn’t be a problem. However, the decor at a beach wedding should not only capture the wedding but the essence of the relaxing aura and magnificent vista that surrounds the venue. In other words, decorating beach weddings requires a little more creativity. When done right, anyone visiting the wedding should go “wow.”
If you need some inspirations on how to decorate your beach wedding, here are three tips to help you out:
1. Decide on the Theme
Great deco starts with a great theme. Not only will that theme serve as a guideline on your decor choices, but it will also help eliminate any other design elements that do not fit the overall theme. In other words, it helps to limit your options to make decision-making much more manageable.
Themes such as beach party, surfer, sunset, or crystal sea all are great to help you decide which decor fits. For example, if you were choosing a sunset theme, you’d opt for orange-blue decor that mimics the sunset. The bride might even wear something that emanates the relaxing aura that sunsets have. Of course, your choice of theme is entirely up to you, and you can always refer to the internet for more themes if you want more options.
2. Choose a Color
If themes aren’t your thing, then you will have to decide on a color scheme. You’ll have to pick a few colors and base all your decor around that color. It also helps that these colors work well with each other.
In a beach wedding ceremony, colors such as teal, turquoise, blue, deep navy blue, and pastels all look great. If you can’t make up your mind, you can look at your venue and see what natural colors there are. You can base your wedding’s color scheme on seashells, the ocean, the sky, or even the surrounding palm trees. Tropical colors also work great, as well as one that replicates the coral reef.
Your choice of color and theme is up to you. When you’re able to come to a decision, the rest of the decorating process becomes simplified.
3. Consider the Budget, Time, and Other Aspects
Before you go ahead and select decor based on your theme and color, you’ll have to decide on a few more things.
For example, look at the wedding venue. Are you next to the beach or on the beach? Are you by the ocean or a large lake? Your location will help you determine which decor fits which venue best.
Other elements to consider are your budget, guest list, and time you’re willing to spend. Your budget will be one of the main influencers of your decision, forcing you to make sure that the decor used doesn’t go over it.
Meanwhile, the guest list will help you determine how many people are going to attend. This will allow you to rent just enough decorations (and anything else) to fit the right amount of people. Finally, your time is also an essential factor. If you have plenty of time, you can spend more time deciding on and decorating the wedding. If you don’t, you can opt for less decoration or hire more hands to help you out.
While decorating beach weddings can get complicated, knowing the essential factors to consider can help you better prepare for a smooth decorating activity. Pick a color or choose a theme and consider all the factors that will influence your decoration choices. By doing that, you’ll be able to pick the right decoration that not only gives you the least amount of headache to get right but to create a wedding that no one will ever forget for just how beautiful it looked.
