A beach themed wedding is a perfect idea for the summer and gives off a lovely laid-back vibe. You needn’t live by the sea to pull off the look either. Join us as we explore the best coastal wedding trends for the ultimate seaside wedding…

Just because you’ve opted for a cool, laid-back theme, doesn’t mean you need to rock up in a sarong. Stay away from anything too formal though and opt for a chic, floaty style gown that allows you to get involved in the beach games later on. Your groom and your maids can also embrace the theme by wearing cool coastal colours. Blues, greys and corals are all great choices.
To match your coastal theme, why not opt for one of our white classic wedding cars for hire, such as the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Truly exquisite in style, it’s best paired with our White Chrysler – otherwise known as the Baby Bentley, which has enough seating for all of your wedding party. To book any of these cars today, get in touch with the Limo-Scene team on 07812 102 051.

If you’re looking for a chic alternative to fish and chips, why not offer a fresh seafood bar with lobsters oysters and king prawns. While mini fish and chip cones are great for your canapés, or your evening food, you might want to offer up something more sophisticated for your main. Other alternatives include yummy seafood dishes, or for something fun and laid-back why not choose a beach BBQ?

Embrace your inner child with your favourite childhood beach games. The coconut shy, mini golf and a beach volleyball area are all great ideas for your outdoor entertainment. While the guests are busy being big kids, keep the little ones amused with a classic Punch and Judy show.
Once you’ve created your very own beach resort, it’s all about those final wedding details on your tables. Style your tables with cool coastal colours and incorporate shells, scattered across the table or stored in hurricane vases. You could also add some sailor-style accessories, like anchors and boats, or even cute and colourful mini beach huts – perfect for your table centrepieces. All of these accessories are readily available at good home stores, like The Range, or online – making it easy to create your beach scene no matter what your location.
Don’t forget to make sure your table names reflect your seaside theme too. Why not name them after famous British seaside resorts like Scarborough, Blackpool or Brighton? Alternatively, you could swap the traditional table names with postcards, meaning guests find their tables by picture, not word.
