Beach Wedding Theme
by Rose Smith
(If you can't make it to the ocean for your wedding, this consultant
suggest ways to have a beach wedding even if you're far away. Some of
the ideas could be adapted for a real beach wedding.)
Something simple, light and airy. If you're not too worried about being
conventional, go with a long flowing white sun dress and wide brimmed
sun hat or large tropical flower in your hair.

Again, casual is probably better. A nice white sports jacket and white
or beige pants. Add some fun to it by donning a colorful beach type tie.
Either long or mid-calf sun dresses with chiffon scarves to tie back
long hair or wide brimmed sun hats. The dresses could be in a colorful
pattern or in colors to match your color scheme.
Use the beach wedding motif.. a nice picture of a tropical beach, for
instance. (Create your own with a good scanner and printer.)
Buy plenty of beach balls in a variety of colors and hang them from
the ceiling. Rent fake palm trees. Cover wedding guests' tables with a
deep blue table cloth, sprinkled with a little sand in the center and
Nice large sea shells, with holes drilled in the top of each, and ribbons
looped through the hole for hanging. Or cardboard treat boxes filled with
with chocolate pieces in the shape of beach stuff like sea shells and
wrapped in a beach wrapping paper.
Large, pillar candles with sea shells embedded in the wax and set in
a low, flat dish fileld with sand. Or miniature lighthouses. (Both are
easy to find in hobby and gift stores in beach towns like Cape May.)
Use small lei's as pew markers, for a tropical beach feel.
