Peach-Orange-Cream Wedding Theme Of My Beach Wedding

These are the color combination I decided for my own wedding, PEACH-ORANGE-CREAM Wedding Theme for my beach wedding. From my unique beach wedding invitation, to my personalized wedding program that I personally made myself, my bridesmaids' dresses, my wedding bouquet and the personalized beach towels and beach bags were given away to my guests, plus my personalized luggage tags with all our guests' names and home address.
As what I have previously posted regarding the collection of wedding themes to choose from, as your guide, you can also think of any color combination you may like. What made me decide to have chosen these colors in the end was, the thought of having a bright sunny afternoon wedding, to accentuate the beauty of having a beach wedding.

Wedding Theme Color Collections


Confused what theme your wedding will it be? Or rather, you don't know what sort of color combination you would going to have?

When I was planning my own wedding, and was still unsure the theme color I was going to have that would match my beach wedding, I used to collect all different sort of colors and I chose from among these wedding inspiration boards/collections I have had.
Indeed, picking your entire theme is one of the greatest things about planning your wedding, and for most people, a theme may begin from your favorite color, or your wedding dress. Sometimes brides want to stay with the pastel color paletter for their weddings, meaning soft pinks, yellows, purples and blues. However, in this new day and age, we can add those same colors, just in bolder hues!

These are some of my favorites, if only to have more than one wedding, I would have liked to experienced them all! LOL...

Beach Wedding Dresses

Indeed, beach weddings are becoming so popular these days, and why not?,, with the beautiful backdrop of mother nature as your nuptials, it's easy to see why. Beach weddings are not only naturally romantic, but beaches provide a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for that important day without costing an arm and a leg. The rising cost of formal settings, coupled with the natural beauty and romance of sand and surf, makes the beach a perfect place to exchange vows. But finding the perfect beach wedding dress can pose some challenges. Most "informal wedding dresses" are still way too formal and poofy and do not match the casual, natural, laid-back setting of the beach.
You will probably have to give up the notion of a Cinderella dress. A beach wedding calls for a more casual look. Natural elements, while providing atmosphere, can wreak havoc with your appearance.

Sweet and Simple at the Beach

The classic beach wedding dress is cool, casual, and relaxed, yet sexy and beautiful. A heavy, elaborate gown with a long train may appear out of place on the beach, so consider a simpler design. For example: a short or tea-length white satin strapless dress; an elegant rayon sarong; or a long sundress. Consider airy, lightweight fabrics, such as georgette, chiffon, crepe, organza, charmeuse, or even cotton (avoid silk, which can make you perspire). If you do want a train, consider a shorter one with a finger hold so you're not dragging it through the sand.

Check for Bridesmaids' Dresses
Since many wedding dresses are too formal for the beach, you might want to consider looking at bridesmaid dresses in ivory, cream, light pink, etc. These are generally more casual. So are prom dresses, and it won't be difficult to find a white prom dress. Another option is to have something made exactly how you want it.
Watch the Wind
Keep in mind that the beach, whether you are on the sand or in a waterfront gazebo, is likely to be windy. Consider the cut of your dress. A slip dress or other straight-line design will behave a lot better than an A-line or fuller skirt. If you really want a full, flowing dress, then go with a long one. A simple white strapless dress with a flared skirt is one possibility. Add a blue sash to match the ocean and give you something blue for luck.

If you're wearing a veil, make sure it's weighted at the bottom so it doesn't flap continuously or catch the wind and go airborne. Think of the wedding pictures! Since part of the reason for getting married on the beach might be to keep your wedding casual, you might want to drop the veil entirely.

A Flower in Your Hair
For the complete beach look, consider a flower in your hair or a wide-brimmed hat. Be sure they're pinned down good though or you may lose them to the ocean wind. Also, keep your comfort in mind so you can enjoy this special day. Remember, nylons and the beach don't mix. Same with high heels. Go barefoot, or wear dressy or barefoot sandals.

Beach Wedding Brides


Congratulations and good luck of having decided on a wonderful destination wedding or a wedding at your local beach. So, I'm sure you may have started of looking for different wedding dresses for the beach, for your dream wedding. I did exactly what I just said, the moment we have decided to have ours on a beach, first thing that tickled my mind was to search for my gown. There is one thing in common with most wedding gowns for a beach wedding, and that is that they usually are a shorter dress so that there is not a train dragging in the sand the whole time. However, as soon as I have seen all those beach wedding websites, which doesn't necessarily mean to have a short dress, at the end of the day it is your big day and you can have whatever you like. The entire decision is yours, so take the most of it.

Finding beach wedding dresses can be quite challenging, and if it is not common for weddings in your home area to occur on a beach, chances are the local wedding gown shop will have a very limited selection when you are looking for a beach wedding dress. You may have to consider purchasing a white dress that is designed for a graduation or other event in order to find a dress that will work as beach bridal gowns. Many beach style wedding dresses can be found by looking on the internet. One of the biggest selling beach dresses are the fall beach wedding dresses.


Informal beach wedding dresses can be found online quite easily, and is often your best bet for ideas as the wedding shops in your city will most likely showcase the more formal wedding dresses. There are, however some beach wedding gowns that can be very formal and elaborate. This will often consist of a wedding gown that has been tailored to make it shorter, which will prevent you from tripping over a wedding dress train in the sand that is hard enough to walk in as it is. If you are wearing a beach wedding gown, it is also more important to wear some sort of sandal or other footwear to go with it. You do not want to take away from the elegance of a formal wedding dress by going bare footed.

Casual beach wedding dresses can consist of any type of dress you want. It can be as simple as a sundress found at a casual clothing store, and will not look out of place as long as the rest of the wedding party and groom dress to match. In fact, many beach wedding dresses are casual styled. Some of the casual wedding gowns for the beach are partially a bikini. Many people also have 2 different wedding gowns for their beach wedding. One of them, are a fancy bridal dress for the beach wedding and the other for the reception. Just remember, you are going to want it to be comfortable and cool. After all, if you are having a beach wedding, chances are it is at a hot destination. It is also going to be much easier to bring a simple dress on an airplane than a long formal wedding gown. In addition, when choosing wedding dresses for the beach, you should go with what is comfortable to you.

Planning Flowers For Your Wedding


Choosing what sort of flowers you gonna be using on your wedding is quite easy if you only know what sort of flowers your location has to offer. It doesn't have to be very complicated. We all know that flowers seem to be a significant part of every wedding, and the decision to have flowers usually isn't the hard part, as is deciding which kind to have. There are many different options. Having real flowers or silk flowers and deciding on type, color and arrangements can be a daunting task. The flowers to be used for decorating your wedding are very important and many people wait until the last minute to begin planning. Don't make this mistake; preparation is one of the most crucial aspects of the entire process. Decide on a florist ahead of time as they can get booked up especially in the busy Spring and early Summer wedding seasons. When it comes to the day of your wedding be sure to allow plenty of time to set up the arrangements.

Although you want to plan ahead of time you do not want to have the flower arrangements set up too far ahead of the wedding ceremony. Even if you have friends and relatives who are taking care of the flowers for you do not set them up too early.

It is best to have the arrangements done at most a few hours prior to the ceremony. Even setting them up the night before can result in wilting flowers and can ruin the look of your wedding.

If you have chosen to use lilies like the popular Stargazers be aware that their pollen can stain badly. Don't be afraid of using them because they are very beautiful and have a pleasant fragrance, just snip off the pollen bearing parts of the plant before having them set up.

If you are using a florist to set up your wedding flower arrangements be sure that they aren't rushed and overbooked. Unless they have a huge staff they should not have more than one or two weddings booked for a particular day. I prefer getting friends and family involved, personally. Again, if you are using a florist make sure that you have a detailed contract that outlines the details of what you have agreed to and discussed including pricing, timing, types of flowers and anything else that you deem to be important. You must be specific about colors, sizes, numbers, etc. Do not just leave it up to the florist, they will do the least they can get by with if you don't spell it out ahead of time and get it in writing.

If you plan ahead and shop around you can be sure that your special day will be enhanced by the flower arrangements and the people you use to set them up for you, if you don't it could make your special day turn into a big headache. It is smart to have someone help you; don't try to take on all the planning by yourself.
