I’m having a beach wedding as well but haven’t taken photos of many of my projects yet. We’re not doing tropical beach, more Nantucket than Key West if that makes sense. Shades of blues and ivory with hydrangeas, sand, starfish, flip flops and tuxes. It’s a church ceremony and then ocean side reception so it’s not too casual and not too formal. I’ve attached some inspiration photos I found online and some that were cut and pasted by me and rescanned.

We’re doing a sort of coastal beach theme (not tropical beach, but like rocky coast (?)) – if that makes sense.

Here’s our inspiration pic for our centerpieces:

The other part to our centerpieces will be glass vases filled with a bulb style candle, and chunks of seaglass and small shell (my bad mockup lol much prettier IRL!):

Our card holder is a lobster trap.

Our invitations will have starfish on them (no pic yet, but will update once we get all of our invitation pieces to assemble!) 🙂

We’re getting married on an island, so we’re trying to try the rocky coast and island themes together.

Hiya Ladies, 

I’m new to the Hive but very much looking forward to blogging over the next year or so!! 

Well i’ve hit the exciting stage of planning, its been my dream!! 

My boyfriend and I are looking to Marry in the Caribbean December 2012. (We dont have an exact date yet but im working on it.) 

We are thinking Barbados Antigua or St Lucia. 

I’m loving the ideas everyone is coming up with… 

I would like it to be a tropical theme, White-pink and purple orchid bouquets, same flowers flowing down the front of a white 3 tiered cake. (nothing OTT)… 

 

I saw the idea of having coloured paper fans that fit with the theme and are great for Favours. (but i would prob leave them nicely on the seat for the ceremony so people dont get to hot!)  I’m going to do my very best to upload a photo or link… 

http://www.fantastica-uk.co.uk/ourshop/prod_756598-Plain-Coloured-Paper-Fans-Personalised-Handle.html   I love them!!

I’m open to suggestions on everything. Our biggest thing is how to word the initial invites. As we obviously want to invite all but know most people cant afford to travel from England to Caribbean!!….. Styles of invites and wording would really help me at this stage in planning… 

 

Many thanks

xx

Beach reception here…and I will say that I personally do not want the ‘traditional’ beach themes (seashells, starfish) as part of my decor. I just don’t like them for myself, not my style. I am trying to do more of an ‘elegant vintage seaside’ wedding. Still trying to figure out how to accomplish that though, lol. Even though I don’t like the traditional touches of a tropical beach wedding, I DO like nautical themed things – stripes, anchors, etc. I know that is more of a New England beach wedding, and we are doing a tropical wedding, but I think I am going to try to figure out how to incorporate them anyway.
