Beach Weddings On The Emerald Coast

A wedding on the gorgeous, white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast is amazing because it is able to achieve something that is nearly impossible.

It allows you to be relaxed, surrounded by lush coastal beauty, on one of the most important, momentous days of your life. Plus, a beach wedding and reception combined with the fantastic imagination of the wedding pros at Celebration Hall, the premier events venue on the Gulf coast, allows for so many fun, unique ways so make your nuptials memorable. From seashell bouquets to starfish décor to exiting your reception on a boat, there are so many fantastic ideas that’ll only work at this idyllic setting.

Here are a few of our inspiring ideas to get you started!

Bouquet-from colorful orchids against banana leaves, to the addition of starfish and sea shells, beach weddings are perfect for the bride who loves whimsical details. Fill your bouquet with contrasting colors, like orange and blue or incorporate corals or delicate sea fans into it. Be sure to continue the theme into your groom’s boutonnière. Attire-Take a casual approach with a short & simple dress, paired with shorts for the groom. Or go for a more glamorous approach with fabrics that will dazzle in the soft light of a setting sun and move like a dream in the gulf breezes like silk or chiffon. Dreaming of a barefoot ceremony? You can still dress up your feet with anklets made of tiny shells or pearls. And we never met a groom who didn’t like standing barefoot in the sand, instead of cramped dress shoes, as he waits for his bride. Bridesmaids’ Accessories- Bright leis make fun photo props, as are sun glasses and parasols in your wedding colors. Grass skirts are also fun. Decor-Imagine rows of glowing lanterns, or tea lights out even tiki torches, the natural beauty of the beaches provides a lavish setting without having to spend a fortune. Use surfboards as tables or 3D art, enjoy a fireworks show on the shore or hire professional fire or Polynesian dancers to entertain your guests during cocktail hour. Carry the beach theme over into your wedding cake and table decor. You can use coral to mark table numbers, and fondant can be made to look like a tower of edible sugar shells. The possibilities are endless.
