With spring and summer approaching, now is the time to start planning your dream wedding on the beach. Many surf-loving couples are jumping on the latest wedding trend of getting married amid nature’s beauty by the shore. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful setting in which to say I do; waves gently crashing behind the couple as family and friends look on from lavishly decorated beach chairs arranged on the sand. The bride, a vision in floating white against the varying blues of sky and sea and the groom, striking a dark, handsome figure, stand hand in hand, silhouetted against the ocean as they exchange vows. Flanked on the left by handsome groomsmen in light yellow linen and on the right by sun kissed beauties holding bright yellow bouquets standing in beautiful contrast to their seductively gauzy aqua bridesmaid dresses, this is one bridal party that will leave the guests speechless.
Several wedding lines offer aqua bridesmaid dresses in beach friendly designs, with light airy fabrics and gorgeously flowing cuts. Your bridesmaids will love you for choosing shore perfect aqua bridesmaid dresses that they will be able to wear again on cruises, at parties, or on romantic ocean-side walks.
The color aqua is actually achieved by blending a small amount of yellow with blue, giving regular blue a warmer, greener hue, like the color of the ocean. Because of this, yellow trim and accessories makes the perfect color counterpart to aqua bridesmaid dresses. For a full-fledged tropical look, accentuate aqua bridesmaid dresses with vivid lime green, creating a beautifully modern color scheme that is perfectly suited for a beach wedding. Calming aqua alongside rejuvenating lime green makes the perfect bouquet or boutonniere as well.
Beach weddings do require certain considerations that more traditional weddings may not, such as accessibility. Are there older guests or guests with mobility issues who may not be able to transverse the sand to get to the wedding sight? Offering rides from the parking area to guest seating in sand-friendly all terrain vehicles is the best, if more costly, solution. If the ceremony area is not far from the parking area, a small walkway may be constructed to make walking across the sand less difficult.
Also, consider your bridesmaids when picking shoes. Don’t force your closest friends to try to look fabulous while walking through sand in four-inch heels. The hot shoe choice for beach weddings now is the “wedding barefoot sandals”. These “shoes” are actually decorative pieces of jewelry that wrap around the ankle and gracefully slope down the foot and connects as a toe ring, giving the appearance of a sandal while at the same time giving your bridesmaids the freedom of being barefoot and beautiful on the beach. Clear rhinestone barefoot sandals, as well as smoky yellow topaz would look incredible with aqua bridesmaid dresses.
