Imagine the wedding of your dreams – romantic sunset, white sandy beach, dazzling turquoise waters…palm branches sway with the wind as the billowing waves hit the shores. Imagine the gentle waft of the sea breeze as it softly blows your hair and your toes play with the sand as you vow your undying love for each other. Those are the ingredients of a romantic resort style wedding.
Whether you find a sea-side resort with a charming gazebo or you opt to have your ceremony barefooted by the shore, a resort style themed wedding is perfect for the starry-eyed romantic in you. You can go full blast on your budget or keep the expenses on a bare minimum.
The beautiful seascape will serve as your backdrop – the panoramic vista of the sea and the orange sunset will make a spectacular stage set for the wedding ceremony. It’s easy to prettify a gazebo by the beach with the hills and the cliffs and the sparkling blue sea on the background. But if you want to have it by the shores, it’s more fun to spruce up the place. Transforming a shoreline into a space for a wedding ceremony is an artistic endeavor. Some shores have flowing grasses and flowers mixed with the sand – that’s just perfect. Scatter some succulents on driftwoods and put some shells and bottles around the place. Who says, you don’t need a door when you’re outdoors with the open sky as your ceiling. Hang an old door and make it your entryway to the ceremony space.
The right mix of flower combination will make it perfect. Beautiful garden roses, lilac, succulents and bunny tail grass will make an elegant and classic flower arrangement. Use them as a bouquet or as table top décor. Your wedding reception venue can be just as beautiful. Find bamboo chairs, mix-matched old dining chairs, capiz shell chandeliers. For the resort style themed wedding cake – let your imagination run loose. Go for custom-made wedding cakes, with seashells and starfishes as a cake topper. Anything that reflects you and your husband-to-be’s personality. For your wedding favors, you can choose from the wide gamut of choices — from starfish bottle openers to personalized lip balms.
Of course, you’re not forgetting your wedding dress, go for an off-the shoulder style with sheer back and a bit of dramatic flare at the bottom. Your wedding entourage will look wonderful with a blue or green color scheme.
