3. Get lanterns to improve lighting

If you wish to have a sense of warmth and amber glow during reception, purchase lanterns that you can place around the area. The effect is stunning, especially if the sun has already set. If you’re not a fan of lanterns, you can also utilize string lights to achieve the same effect.

4. Candles wrapped in rope

Candles have always been a part of weddings. They only differ on how you use them on your venue and chosen theme. These items will work well in a beach setting by using ropes as candle holder. This may be part of your reception table or given as beach wedding favors.

5. Shell-covered accents

Using big letters to spell out “LOVE” or the initials of the couple is very commonly used in beach wedding themes nowadays. You can still improve its plain design by filling it with seashells. You can place this at the cake table or in the bar.

6. Flowy fabric as backdrop

The wind that you feel in the area isn’t just there to keep you and your guests cool. You can use it to your advantage by using flowy fabric as backdrop instead of wooden pieces. Choose a design that elevates the mood like sunny fabric.

7. Hydrangea and driftwood for a wedding arch

Take advantage of the beautiful sunshine and waterfront setting. You can line the aisle with seashells or flowers to create a whimsical vibe. Elevate the look of a beachy driftwood structure by adorning it with textured greenery and fluffy hydrangeas.

I then spent several years working in the UK organizing large corporate events and weddings. My love of Spain and all things Spanish eventually brought me back to the Costa del Sol where I came to settle in 2003. After getting married in Marbella and raising my son, I eventually went back to the industry I know and love…Wedding Planning.
