Since we are located in Ormond Beach, Florida, I thought that it might be nice to share some unique wedding details for a fabulous beach wedding.
One interesting idea is to "say no" to the 5-person wedding band, and to consider having a steel drummer and a classical guitarist instead. Have them play your favorite classic tunes, reggae style.
When it comes to your bouquet, use bright exotic flowers along with a shell detail. Add different shapes of flowers to add more texture and wrap the bouquet in a crystal wrap treatment to add an elegant touch.
Although flowers may be beautiful in the bouquet, they may sway too much in the breeze if used for aisle decorations at the ceremony. Instead, consider decorating the beach aisle with starfish or other fun beach emblems.
Starfish aren't the only way to really incorporate the beach into your wedding. Use sand dollars as seating cards for your guests by simply writing each person's name across the top.
Also, don't forget to add details to the cake to complete the beach wedding feel!
A fun way to decorate your reception is your placecards. Adding intricate details will help your guests remember your wedding for years to come. Check out my favorite placecard holders from Beau-Coup:
This would be a couple who loves to go boating or who is getting married at a yacht club.
Perfect for the wine enthusiast couple.
Great for the bride who cannot add enough flowers to her wedding day.
