Ideas for Holding a Beautiful and Memorable Wedding on the Beach

Instead of holding your wedding inside a church or another indoor venue, consider having a little fun on your special day by having a beach wedding. You can use the ocean as a beautiful backdrop for pictures along with taking pictures early in the morning or late in the evening so that the sun shines on the water. There’s also more space for chairs and your guests on the beach instead of in a traditional venue.

As the only private beachfront wedding venue in Orange County, Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina offers 50,000 square feet of beautiful wedding backdrops and over 20 different venue types perfectly designed to make your wedding dreams come true.

Aquatic Colors

If you plan a beach wedding in Orange County, some of the colors that you can use include teal, blue, green, orange, and yellow. There’s an abundance of shades that allow you to work with the other details of the environment, such as the ocean and the sand. This also makes it easier to use other decorations aside from seashells and other items that you would normally find on the beach.

Bottled Messages  

You’ve probably seen guests leave messages for the bride and groom on a piece of paper or on a card at other weddings. When planning a beach wedding in Orange County, let guests write a short message on a piece of paper that they can roll up and put inside a large bottle. After the wedding or on your first anniversary, you can read all of the messages from your friends and family!

Clothing and Accessories  

When you get married on the beach, the clothing you wear can be simple and comfortable, which is beneficial if you don’t have a lot of money to spend. You can place a wicker basket at the entrance to the beach so that guests can take off their shoes if they don’t want to wear them in the sand. Another option for clothing for the groom and groomsmen would be khaki pants instead of a black suit or tuxedo.
