Every girl’s dreamed of her perfect wedding. The dress, the aisle, the music she’d dance to with her groom and her father…and for some, that dream includes a seaside wedding complete with sand in her toes and the wind in her hair.
If you’re planning a beach wedding, pearls are the natural fit to compliment any decor or style of your big day: after all, pearls come from the ocean, so why not use them as a way to celebrate your wedding style? Want to incorporate pearls but not sure how to get started? Here are some ideas to help you out.
In Your Decor: Pearls are a beautiful addition to any wedding decor, especially on the beach. Whether you want to include them in your centerpieces, on your wedding cake, or even in your invitations, pearls can give off a beachy vibe without looking cheap or gaudy. Even better, they are easily coordinated in color and shape with seashells, starfish, and can even make a burlap tablecloth look glamorous.
In Your Fashion: Whether you want to wear a pearl embroidered dress or not, you can incorporate pearls into your wedding decor with or without them being the focal point of your dress. Your groom’s boutonniere and even your shoes can be embellished with pearls. Of course, don’t overlook your jewelry! At a beach wedding, pearls can be the perfect look between the glamorous bride you want to be and the casual sounds of the waves crashing on the shore.
In Your Bouquet: While flowers are often the natural choice for a bridal bouquet, if you’re saying your vows on the beach, the sky (or the ocean) is the limit for how creative you can be when building the perfect bouquet. If you want a keepsake that will last for decades, build your bouquet out of sea shells and pearls instead of flowers that will wilt and die. Want flowers anyway? You can still include pearls in the wrap around, or even woven in with the flowers.
In Your Hair: Your clothes don’t have to be the only place where you include pearls in your wedding day look. For beachy hair, you might want to choose a short veil with a pearl headband, or weave pearls into a waterfall braid for a boho-beachy look. Flowers, pearls, and even starfish can be incorporated into your beach wedding ‘do.
In Your Wedding Party: Finding the perfect bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts can be challenging, but pearls can be a great way to incorporate your beachy theme into your wedding party’s gifts. From a pearl bedazzled flask to pearl pendant necklaces, your wedding party will say “I do” to your pearl gifts.
Whether you’re getting married this summer, or just fantasizing about your future beach wedding, don’t forget to include pearls in your wedding scheme.
Until next time,
