Border the aisle runner with natural coral. As it is a beach wedding you can decorate your aisle with palm fronds and other tall decorations. Make some stands of potted tropical flowers and colourful ribbons and tie them perfectly with chair detailing.
Put the palm fronds in the centre of the pots and left them to hang to the side in the breeze. You may also line the aisle with tropical flowers and palm branches. If it is a night wedding then you may use ‘tiki’ torches to mark the aisle. Give your guests lanterns to lighten up the ceremony. Use drift wood, starfish, buoys, anchors, old fishing nets, oars, sea shells etc as decorating items.
Your guest arrangement should be appropriate for beach. Make sitting arrangement carefully. You may arrange deck chairs for older guests and blankets for very younger guests. Not all chairs are appropriate for sands. Use sand- friendly chairs and decorate them with ribbons and flowers. Never forget to distribute wedding colour umbrellas to your guests if you don’t want to ruin the excitement in sudden rainfall.
Other Decorations For Beach Wedding Ceremony
You may arrange a beach wedding arch. You can make it yourself or hire it from store. A wedding arch made of latticework, driftwood or palm leaves will add an especial effect to the ceremony. Decorate the arch with lights, ribbons and flowers.
You can use tropical plants and flowers as centerpieces. But don’t forget to place rocks or heavy shells at the bottom of the plant and flower arrangements otherwise they may topple over the tables. Another good idea is to use glass lanterns on the sides of the aisle. You may also place beautiful sand sculptures to get the wow factor.
