So it’s just about summer time and if you’re doing the wedding on the beach this year, I have been thinking and these are some things that only you could get away with. The first thing is pastels. I absolutely hate pastels for anything but the beach. It is one of the only places on earth where they look pretty and can actually match the ocean, restaurants, old people (just kidding), and really a relaxed and happy mood. The beach for me means relaxation, kicking back, frozen drinks, hot passions and some fantastic foods with overdone and rich flavors. Pastels, although I hate to admit it, do have their purpose in relaxing your mind and mood. Look at Bermuda for example, it is all done in pastel from the buildings, to the sand to the ocean and even some of the fish and corals look pastel. Pastels do somewhat mean the beach and at the same time, if you are getting married on the beach and choose to not use rich greens, blues and beuatifull full bodied colors, then Pastels work in this one situation. So anyways, if you are looking for a few things to make your pastel or regular beach wedding special, here are some beach wedding ideas and favors to delight your guests and give that fiishing touch.
So these are a fabulous pre favor idea that I love. They are individually wrapped and each chocolate seashell set comes with everything you need to be able to create these fabulous and gorgeous little treat bags for your guests.
The colors of the wrapped chocolates represent the beach and the sea. The blue is for the ocean while you have the golden orange which is the sun and you have a pale golden shell which represents the sand, ohh and each is shaped like a sea shell to add that little touch. Now, if you are wondering, each chocolate is actually different too. They come in Mint Crunch, Orange and Toffee flavors, I think you can figure out which is which. Now the way I would use and recommend using these chocolate seashells is to have the hotel you and your guests are staying at put one or two in each guest room on the bed of the wedding and hotel guest to get them started in the wedding spirit and have them in the relaxing and party mood to get your big day off to a perfect start.

So this is kind of a unique idea for you and your partner, especially if you are into symbolism. It is the heart sand container and although it is cheesy, cheesy works on your wedding day and hey, most people are expecting something kind of standard lovey dovey so why not give it to them with this. You and your partner will choose your favorite color in sand (or your wedding colors, just make sure they look nice with each other). Then I recommend that after you have said your vows and just before you have your first kiss as a married couple, you each take your heart shaped glass containers with the colored sand and then you pour them in to combine them like you are combining your lives and hearts, then as the sand finishes pouring, you kiss over top of the heart shaped container filled with your sand and enjoy your first kiss as a married couple on the beach and above your ceremonial sand. Not to mention you can take it home with you as a fabulous memory. I also recommend you take some sand from the beach and top it off or fill a little bit of the bottom of the heart shaped container so that you have a piece of your wedding and the beach with you for when you get home. Now, here is what the vendor recommends and how they promote this, Use this fabulous glass heart shaped set for your wedding sand ceremony. This set includes everything you need with a 7″ heart shaped bottle and a glass stopper, one 4.5″ metal display stand, two 9.75″ heart vases and one 8.5″ heart vase. The sand is not included but is available separately. You can also purchase extra vases and sands if you would like to have more children or parents involved in your sand ceremony. Ohh I just had another thought too, wouldn’t it be cool to have each wedding party member pick their favorite color of sand or boys get blue girls get green or something and then they each pour it into the large heart shaped vase to represent that they are ok with giving you away? I love the idea and you can purchase this set and sand by clicking here!
Ok tacky and horrible describes this at it’s best, well maybe retro or 1980’s could work as well, but then again, everyone has that oddball family member from Florida or crazy party bull dyke that loves to do it up and this tuxedo and bowtie set is probably the perfect fit for that person. Come on, we all know at least one person that would love this. Splashy colors (ohh yeah, we are going there with the puns on this one) and fishy fine details make this a set that not only looks good, but it fits great. It’s made from a washable, 100% microfiber so no matter what you put it through, this ocean themed tuxedo set always looks crisp and pressed. The hidden adjustable belt and the full fabric back allows for a perfect silhouette (for those of you into fashion or who are hooked on Bravo like me) with your jacket on or off. The bow tie arrives pre-tied (because if you are choosing something like this, chances are you do not know how to tie a bowtie) so it looks good with every wearing. So if your person who would wear this is anything like mine, this is the most important part. This ocean scene tuxedo set is available in a large selection of sizes including extended sizes, so no matter what your build you get a comfortable, great looking fit. Now if you can’t see the picture, click here and you will see all the fish, turtles, coral and other fabulous beach and sea creatures that are featured on this tuxedo set.

If you are having a beach wedding and want to make sure it is a party, you got to have someone wearing this outfit as that person will be the person who gets the party started.

Anyways, although I love the beach and love all the fun things you can have or use or include at your beach wedding, I need to go meet with some friends for brunch. Come back soon and see what else I have to reccommend for your big day.
