Jewelry – Traditional jewels will look cumbersome and heavy, so opt for delicate pieces or skip the gold and platinum for floral jewelry to match your surroundings. Creative brides have gotten very fashion forward with their floral jewels!

Beauty – Your makeup should feel weightless and some key words to think about when planning your look would be: glowing, fresh, fun, soft…. NOT traditional. Your hair should match the overall feeling of the event- are you a laid back, messy fishtail kind of girl or are you a beachy waves type of girl?

Atmosphere – The first thing we think of when we picture a beach wedding is the combination of white sand and crystal-blue water. These are serene colors that can be punched up with an accent like orange, red or purple.
