There are hundreds of great reasons to have your wedding ceremony on the beach, and twice the number of reasons as to why you may not be able to do it. Many couples dream of a destination or beach wedding and for reasons such as inability to travel, costs, restrictions and “family feuds” – it becomes a dream deferred for most. The best way to overcome the obstacles and get as close to your dream as possible, is with an indoor (or outdoor) beach theme wedding. In fact, you can tell them on your invitation “We could not get you to the beach, so we are bringing the beach to you!” While sand and beautiful blue waters are what we love most about beaches, you don’t necessarily need either one to recreate a beach wedding indoors.Look at this website:Myrtle Beach wedding.
There are several components to an indoor or outdoor beach theme wedding, use these to turn your boring drab reception venue into a tropical paradise!
Color Scheme: Your color scheme will be the most vital aspect in creating an indoor beach theme. As you are reading this, I want you to visualize all of the different colors that come to mind when you think of the beach or a tropical destination. You are likely visualizing vibrant shades of blue, bright orange, coral pink, sandy white and rich fuchsia. Use those colors as the primary color palette for your wedding, including your bridesmaid dresses, favors and table center pieces. Beach weddings are fun and exotic – so you have more freedom to play with colors than you would in another wedding theme.
Décor: After you select a color palette, you will need to decide on your décor. Surprisingly enough a “beach theme” encompasses many things. You may want to try a Hawaiian theme, Caribbean, or Florida Keys – then there’s also a “tropical” beach theme versus a more ‘exotic’ theme. The two are not the same when you really think about it. For a Hawaiian theme, grass skirts, tiki torches, bamboo, leis and the sound of drums is very appropriate. In Caribbean wedding themes you will see more palm trees, vibrant colors and lots of flowers. Play on all the senses when creating your décor – your guests should see, feel, smell and “touch” the beach. You will accomplish this through your color palette, music selection, food offerings and wedding favors. Look for exotic flowers, exotic scented candles, fruit platters and foods specific to tropical or Caribbean destinations.
Food: Many reception halls require that you use their catering facilities, and more often than not – their menu selections are less than desirable for recreating an island wedding theme. If you are still in the planning stages, consider a venue that either doesn’t offer catering services in house (meaning you HAVE to have your own caterer) or one that has a Caribbean selection. A dinner selection full of authentic Caribbean cuisine will be a welcomed surprised for your guests. It doesn’t happen often, and for most people – they rarely have the opportunity to eat Caribbean food outside of the Islands. Your reception will be one talked about for years to come.
Again, if you can’t bring your guests to the Islands – bring the Islands to your guests! These are just a few tips to get you started – visit my website now for more valuable advice and information.
