We Love…Sea and Sand

Today is a glorious early autumn day, so we went for a stroll along the beach. Here are some inspirations from our walk:
– the colour of the sea and sky were a brilliant cerulean blue, even the air above the sea looked blue – a wonderful colour to incorporate into your wedding theme
– the rock pools were full of olive green, deep rose pink and brown seaweeds
– shells were white, striped with black, or coral, even blues and purples
– we have sea horses in our bay as well as a variety of coloured fish
– a rope balustrade in the cafe where we stopped for coffee

How do you incorporate these into a wedding theme?
– Use the clear colours of the sea and sky, seaweed and shells for inspiration
– Collect large box frames and fill with sand and shells, starfish and place flat on the tables for a different sort of centrepiece
– Take photos of particularly pretty rock pools, get them blown up and drape across tables, wrap favour boxes, put on canvases. If using on tables, place rectangle shallow bowls filled with water and a few shells on the tables, add some coral shaped candle holders
– String shells along the backs of chairs, in drifts from the ceiling
– Make fish and seahorses from paper and create ‘chandeliers’ from them
– Rope used to tie napkins, hang lanterns, tied around glass containers
