There is something so enduring and romantic about getting married at the beach! Beach weddings remain one of the most popular types of celebrations. Couples can opt to keep things super casual and low key, joining with family and friends in a relaxed and informal day, or they can opt for a more formal affair with elegant touches including a tent and a sit down meal at another location. Beach wedding flowers can be vibrant and fun, or pale and elegant depending on the overall goal and theme of the event.
Seashells, starfish and small anchors are the perfect choice to accent your beach wedding flowers and tables. They are readily available at dollar and craft stores and are easy to add to a vibrant bouquet, to scatter on tables, or to add to your centerpieces. (Mini starfish are also very sweet for attaching to your guest place cards.)
You can even use sand and seashells to fill inexpensive glass vases for your beach themed centerpieces. Order beautiful bulk flowers to fill the vases.
Two of the most iconic color schemes for beach weddings are blue and white, which gives a more nautical, crisp air, or tan and white, which evokes images of sand and bright sun. Try beautiful blue centerpieces and bouquets from BunchesDirect, such as Classic Blue Hydrangea bouquets, Heavenly Mist bouquets, or Blue Hydrangea Centerpieces.
All white flowers are another perfect choice for this theme. Your flowers and accents will work well in this color scheme for your beautiful beach wedding, especially if you want a bit more of a traditional or elegant tone.
Another popular color choice for beach wedding flowers is high contract, such as orange, yellow, green or fuschia. These hues evoke tropical or Caribbean vibe to your celebration and keep things a bit more vibrant and relaxed.
Building a wedding arch or even a small canopy of some kind helps set apart the place for your vows during the ceremony. This clever construction evokes the idea of driftwood. Use beautiful fresh bulk flowers to decorate your arch and give it that special touch. Try white roses (sold by the stem or by the box at BunchesDirect), or white carnations if you love what’s shown!
Another amazing idea for your beach wedding flowers is to order beautiful bulk flowers and create a heart on the beach to surround the wedding vows. A high contrast color like red will work nicely and lend an added touch of romance. Try red roses, red ranunculus, or red gerbera daisies. You could even do this using bulk red rose petals!
