Easy Beach Wedding Ideas

beach wedding gown

Planning on having an elegant fuss free beach wedding?  Here are a few easy beach wedding ideas that will surely inspire any couple planning to say “I Do” with the ocean as their backdrop.

Starting off with, of course, your attire; we love this stunning low back white lace wedding dress. The dreamy flowing skirt and short lace front hem that looks utterly breathtaking with or without shoes. Designed by Grace Loves Lace.

perfect beachside bridesmaid dress

We love the Dessy Twist Wrap Dress for a beach wedding-
Not only is it the perfect dress for beach weather, it is easily packable for a destination wedding. This versatile dress can be worn so many different ways, and really no alterations are needed to ensure a beautiful look for your bridesmaids. Simply twist and wrap the dress any which way you please, allowing a flattering look for many shapes and sizes. Bonus! It can also be worn as a skirt after the wedding as well.

blood orange infused rum

This blood orange vanilla infused rum from One Martini is a lovely gesture to pack in your  guests welcome wedding totes for your destination weddings. Personalize with a cute label and voila you are all set.

2 blood oranges, sliced into wheels and peels removed including pith
1 vanilla bean, cut open but not in half
1 750 ml bottle of white rum – I used Bacardi

Add blood orange wheels and vanilla bean to a quart size mason jar.
Fill with rum and put a lid on the jar.
Store in a cool, dark place and giving it a gently shake each day.
Check the flavor of the infusion daily until you like how it tastes. This should take 3 to 5 days.
Once the flavor is where you want it, strain the rum using a fine mesh strainer and cheesecloth.
Store in a glass bottle, labeled with the name and date, and use as desired in cocktails.

beach groom attire

Groom attire for your beach wedding-
Dressing the groom and his men for a beach wedding is all about staying cool and comfortable, but still having that “dressed up” feeling.  Selecting a suit made of a lightweight fabric, such as a light cotton or linen is a great choice like this suit by Canali. Opting for cooler colors that emulate the surrounding like a soft gray, light blue, or beige are great ways to style your groom for an ocean front wedding.

If you travel to a far off destination, it would be quite lovely for you and guests to dine beach side with the ocean waves crashing behind you. Like at the below photo taken at the Four Seasons Resort, Nevis. Utterly romantic … don’t you think?
