We think she is the bee’s knees! This is just a small sample of the creative beach wedding details we have captured when working with her and her team. Hopefully this gets your gears turning with great destination wedding ideas.
1. Say ‘Yes’ To A Beach Shoe Station!
If you are getting married on the beach, assume there will be a lot of sand to contend with. (Thank you Madam Obvious) And of course you want your wedding guests to be comfortable, right? They will most likely want to pop off their heels or shoes, and will thank you for providing them with an easy spot to do that. What an excellent opportunity to add in cute wedding details like these!
2. Not Natural? No Way!
Beach wedding ceremony decor should be kept clean, and free of too many distracting details. With the Caribbean offering a backdrop this beautiful, why not weave the natural surroundings into your ceremony site?
3. Creative Caribbean Cocktail Reception.
After you say your ‘I Do’s’, make sure you set the tone for the evening’s wedding celebration. This might be our very favorite element in a Fresa Wedding: The signature cocktail beach bar! Who wouldn’t love standing on an impossibly beautiful stretch of beach with their toes in the soft, white sand, while sipping a refreshing, uniquely personalized adult beverage mixed just the way they like? Now that should kick the party up a notch!
4. Tropical Table Tips.
When looking for inspiration for your beach wedding table decor, think of the colorful scene of the Caribbean; the warm turquoise water; the soft powder white sand; the cotton candy pinks and vibrant corals of the sunset; the gently swaying green palm trees. These are the best ideas to be woven into your beach wedding theme, and your wedding table decor. Work with the beautiful details that Mother Nature has already provided, and the results will be incredible!
5. Cool, Comfy Couches.
Your wedding guests will inevitably get pooped from the awesome late night dance party on the beach. Give them somewhere funky and fun to rest their tired feet. Modern lounge-style seating that promotes conversation, cuddling and canoodling is sure to please, and keep all of your guests celebrating with you until long after the bouquet has been tossed!
6. Last But Not Least: Lights!
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: Don’t forget to leave room in your wedding budget for your wedding reception lighting! Especially on the beach! Nothing will set the mood for a beach wedding reception celebration better than the right lights. (And PS. It gets dark on the beach at night!)
