StyleFile #31: A Beach Wedding

Beaches are popular places to have weddings. But how can you make your beach wedding different? Try some of these ideas from the current issue of British Weddings Magazine.


A casual beach house creates the perfect backdrop for a lighthearted wedding with just family and friends. The color scheme is inspired by its location- cool blue and crisp white. Even the house gets into the act with white siding and blue shutters! The bride has on a white tulle dress with lace and ribbon- from Suzanne Ermann.


Adding a whimsical touch is this bike set against the side of the house. In its basket is a beach pail with flowers.


Have the photographer take candid shots of the bridal party sitting around instead of large formal group portraits. The groom wears a white linen suit from Marc Wallace and floral shirt by Favourbrook. On the young pageboy are blue jacket, blue shirt and white shorts all from Hackett.

Table settings continue the blue and white color scheme. Here shells are arranged in bowls and the names of guests are attached to beach bottles. Silver lanterns held by ribbon hang over the tables. The flower girl’s blue tulle dress is at Nicki MacFarlane.

I love this boutonniere- just a stem of Queen Anne’s Lace. Groom’s striped shirt by Hackett.

  1. The Queen Anne’s Lace boutonniere is so simple and great. I’m planning a country wedding, and the easygoing vibe of this whole affair feels just right!

  2. I love beach weddings and see a lot of them here on Maui. If we stay for an evening BBQ at about sunset we might see upto five (5) weddings! I never get tired of watching them. These are really beautiful ideas though and I think can be encorporated even into our tropical environment. There are many beach houses to rent here where a more private ceremony could be held.
