Cinzia Ciani Wedding Planner & Designer

A wedding at the beach is really the dream of many couples. Here are some ideas that could help you organize the event. The wedding on the beach can be religious, civil or maybe just symbolic because maybe you have already married in the town hall.

What wedding dress to choose?

First, the bride's dress. What are the criteria for choosing the right wedding dress for your beach wedding? Comfort is a fundamental rule: if you do not want to give up the long dress, avoid cuts too broad and rigid and instead prefer soft and cheeky models. Better still a short wedding dress, which would leave you great freedom of movement and would give you a simple and chic look. The white is good for those who get married in the sunlight, but if you love the color you can opt for blue, pink, or beige or champagne, which would match perfectly with the sand of the location. Well even the necklines, everything is allowed on the beach, even the bikini, the important thing is that the dress adapts to your shape and enhances its strengths.


The theme

Once you have chosen the theme of the ceremony, everything will have to be consistent, from the place where the ceremony will take place to the reception, from participation in the cake, to all the other minimum details of your wedding. An example could be the wedding with the theme of the sea and the shells Two possible ways, in this case. If the ceremony will be held near or even right on the beach, it will be enough to conform to it for the rest of the decorations, without exaggerating, because in this case the place itself will transmit the theme of the event by itself and will immerse the guests in this atmosphere. If instead you choose a place a little 'far from the beach, but you still want a wedding theme sea, then you must recall this theme in a uniform way in all the details of your wedding, always trying to maintain a great basic harmony. As for the elements to be used in concrete, here are some examples: shells, starfish, seahorses, sand, corals, pearls, sailboats ...


The color

Once the theme is chosen, you must proceed with the choice of colors to use. We always recommend you to select a main color that will be directly related to the theme of the event. Let's then go from those colors that will become the Fil Rouge of your event that, as you will already bey, may be: white, sand, blue, blue, coral ...

A ceremony on the beach, shore at the sea, barefoot on the sand, will definitely will send a less formal style than the same ceremony turned on the terrace of a villa or castle with sea view. In the first case, clothing can be more casual and without any obligations, in the second you may also expect something more formal. If you bet to the ceremony on the beach, better than you have a plan for: to choose a place to receive the following where you can bring together in the case of rain.

The hospitality

Maybe by setting up an area where especially the girls can leave the heeled shoes in exchange for comfortable flip-flops and also take sunglasses, fans and umbrellas.

The religious rite

You could get married in the church of the village, better if close to the location chosen for the reception. Often the small towns on the coast have churches that are real gems. In this case respect the style chosen for your event in the floral arrangements of the church: it would be wrong to decorate the church in an elegant way if the reception were to be an informal buffet with poufs and cushions as seats.


Invitations and participations

They are the first elements that will see your guests at the wedding and it will be from these that you have to start transmitting the theme of marriage, with the colors, with the graphic elements: the guests will already have to guess what awaits them the wedding day. Since you have chosen beach wedding, also for invitations and participations obviously focused on the sea: with colors, with shades of blue, light blue and so on, with elements such as shells and starfish; with other decorative elements such as sand inside the envelope or a starfish to close the participation.

The bouquets, the arrangements and the floral compositions

Very highways that you can walk, but surely what you have to transmit, given the theme and location, will be lightness of the whole and a lot, so much freshness. For the bouquet, for example, you could choose a very essential composition with a predominance of white flowers and add an aquamarine ribbon to cover the handle of the bouquet, in this case the reference to the theme will be given by the ribbon color and possibly by a small maybe silver pendant in the shape of a shell, starfish, seahorse or other.


The centerpieces

For centerpieces, same rule. So nothing excessive, but you should especially note continuity of style, themes and colors. An idea could be to use low transparent glass vases, fill them with sand, shells, white or colored coral and place candles in different heights and sizes in the center. Then sprinkle the table with small drops of blue and blue glass to resume the colors of the sea.


Placeholders are always welcome by guests
