I’m not clear on where you are having the ceremony- the beach? or the lawn? Is the pic of the beach the ceremony site? If not do you have a pic of the lawn ceremony site?

I wouldn’t worry about the rocky beach. Those beaches and the view are the rugged beauty that bring people from all over to Washington State. I think that is the Cama Center on Camano Island.

If you get the benches, the elements I would focus on for decorations would be:

-something for aisle decor

   You could use beachy looking pomaders hung from shepherd’s hooks

   You could make large burlap and / or plum fabric  flowers


    or have birch logs cut into lengths, stand them upright and have a vase or mason jar of plum colored flowers on top

– something at the front altar area

    Cut long lengths of birch logs- place a floral basket on top. This one shows narrower branches inside a vase, but I think you would get the same look with one birch log. You could buy a hanging basket of flowers from the nursery, which would be a lot less expensive than a huge floral arrangement. Talk to the nursery ahead of time to ensure they save baskets in your colors.

    or, use narrower birch branches and stand them upright in some kind of container


– and perhaps, a covering for the benches.

     You can buy sheets of foam to top the benches. Get a bolt of inexpensive fabric in your colors. Cut it inot lengths long enough to cover the bench and hamg down on both ends. Tie a rock or weight into  each corner to prevent it from flying off in the breeze. I wouldn’t use burlap- it’s so scratchy to the skin.

Don’t forget that the actual water is part of the decor and don’t overdo it.  🙂


Where is this?  I’m from Seattle too…

Use seashells as much as you can! If you go to craft stores like ACMoore they have bulk packages of shells, starfish, sanddollars, etc

I have seen star fish used as the groomsmens boutineers before, and pinned to the ribbons of bouquets.

Are you Christian? If you google “Legend of the sanddollar” There is a Crhistian poem.

Maybe use the poem in a frame as a centerpeice, or as favors with little sandollars attached? And use coral in your centerpeices, if you are using flowers or candles.

When my aunt got married, she had “seashell girls” instead of flower girls

Hope this helps 🙂

@Raylene:  It will be beautiful- maybe because I am biased and having my wedding in August on Camano Island.  Can I ask who you found to do hair and makeup?
