I Have a Theme..... Seaside Soiree

Living by the beach I love the seaside theme and think it can be great for those more relaxed couples who don't want a formal affair. It can also be a great theme for those wanting to keep costs down as a lot of things can be collected for free from local beaches and personalised! It is a great summer theme, I personally love it!

Clockwise from top left:
-mini fish and chips make for great evening food
-to keep a relaxed vibe to the wedding keep the bridesmaids dresses loose and boho in style
-having a selection of postcards to write messages to the newly weds provides an alternative to the traditional guestbook
-even the wedding cake can be themed to the seaside!
-Just Married or personalised rock can be used as favours or as part of the table decorations
-Candy floss for sweet toothed guests
-for those really wanting to get into the theme, deckchairs can replace ordinary ones
-a mini message in the bottle (with the scroll inside being details of the wedding such as names and the date) can make a cute wedding favor
-adding star fish or shells to the bridal bouquet can be a nice twist
-pebbles/rocks can be decorated to make sweet place names
-pails of mini umbrellas can be a great addition, as can mini pails of sweets
-replace traditional wedding drinks for fruity rainbow coloured cocktails
-a wedding dress doesn't have to be floor length, to keep things relaxed why not consider a knee skimming design?
-who can resist the classic just married written in the sand? If the wedding is not near an actual beach, why not have an area with sand where you could really feel you are by the seaside?
-wedding music could consist of a live band or to keep costs down why not plug in an ipod loaded with personal playlists to a speaker?
