First of all….6 months or less!!!
I’m having my destination beach wedding on 9-10-11….so 170 days! Not that I’m counting…I just check theknot.com once a week for the official countdown
If you are a beach bride…what are your colors? What are you doing to make it a “beach-y” feeling wedding?!? (besides having it on/near the beach 😉 ) What are you doing for favors?
We’re doing light pink/aqua as our colors. We ordered white 3″ pails, that I’m going to glue coordinating colored ribbon, and mini starfish to, and use them for treats from our candy buffet! I also purchased candy bags with shells on them, and twist ties with shells on them, to put chocolate that my bridal party and I will be making, and those will go on the candy buffet as well!
I’ve found a lot of good deals by doing research and being patient….what have you found?!?

We’re getting married at a house right on the beach. 40 guests. I haven’t chosen colors yets. I’m not into “picking colors” I just want everything to look elegant. Although the house is on the beach, the attire will be cocktail attire. I don’t want it to feel like we’re at a luau. However we will have tropical flowers, centerpieces with sand and sea shells, torches, and anything else that has a formal beach feeling to it. I’m borrowing a lot of items, so I guess once I have it all together, that may determine the color scheme.
My invites are message in a bottle style, with sand and seashells. I am not doing favors. Our menu hasn’t been decided yet but I’m leaning towards a surf n turf type menu.

yayy my wedding i september 10th too! we are having the ceremony on a beautiful little beach in our home town just up the road from our house 🙂 we decided we wanted more formal beach style soo we are having damask and royal blue with hints of yellow, so its still beachy colours but it is classy and elegant at the same time. also our reception venue is painted in those colours pretty much so we decided to go with it rather than change the colours of the walls! good luck and it will be beautiful no matter what, after all you did pick the best date of the year :p
