I’m in the same situation, & my wedding is in a month!! I just got home from Lowes & after looking I think I might get 2 Peach Hibiscus trees instead of an arch. Some arches are just so tacky… & of course the ones I like are way more than I’d be willing to pay to use for 1 hour! Also, if you get a live plant you can keep it as opposed to cut flowers everywhere that will die in a few days! Just keep in mind that a beach is a beautiful setting anyway, so you really don’t need too much decorations. Good luck!

I am creating a short aisle in the sand using shepherd’s hooks, which will hold alternating candles and floral arrangements in mason jars. Really just to define the area a little bit and give everyone an idea of where to stand.

Here are some inspiration pictures I’ve collected that might work for a beach:


A Chuppah makes a beautiful altar:

I have no idea where to get this, but this would make a nice beach altar too:


Here is a picture of river rocks lining the aisle. It would look nice on the sand and would be very cost effective. 



Hisbiscus are a great idea, or something like a Majesty Palm would be nice too.

Not sure about your aqua and brown theme with these but for a colorful fun option think really big pinwheels to accent you aisle? Also arm your flower girl/kids with bubble wands!

@alieliza: That first photo has been my inspiration for our ceremony since we got engaged! It was love at first sight with that canopy!

I found the capiz shell curtain (9 strands) at World Market for $34. The other thing I have in the works is a grass mat aisle runner. I purchased five 3’x5′ woven beach mats at WalMart for $5 a piece. They’ll be sewn together by hand. A rose petal border will line the edges.

@BW92509: Your vision of organza panels sounds lovely. An option that might work, which wouldn’t require too many tools/skills, would be to stick long slender bamboo poles either into the sand or rock-filled pails. You can then sew ties to the corners of the organza panels and hang one between each pair of poles. A couple of little nails hammered into the outside of each pole would help keep the ties from slipping.

Something kind of like this…
