7 Original Beach Wedding Ideas
Luxe Beach Weddings are in demand! Each year, more and more couples are opting to marry in a paradise destination on a stretch of untouched beach. With breathtaking landscapes and sunsets in the background as well as a warm tropical climate; how could you go wrong?

If you've already decided on a beach wedding, here are 7 unique new ideas for destination beach weddings recommended by our luxury wedding planners at Velas Weddings that will make your day a spectacular event!

Nautical Centerpieces

Add a unique touch by using nautical centerpieces that double as table runners. Fun, decorative and practical! These runners can be made using conch shells, starfish, and other nautical elements like chords or fabric made of jute.

Romantic Strands of Fairy Lights

Enhance the romance and warmth of your special day by placing strings of fairy lights around your tables and in the centerpieces. These tiny string lights create an ethereal ambiance and they look beautiful in photos as well.

"No shoes, no problem"

Of course shoes are optional on our gorgeous beaches and, yes, this applies to beach weddings!! To give your guests a more relaxed experience by placing a sign at the entrance that states, "No shoes, No problem!" and invite your guests to kick of their shoes and begin the fun.  Add custom beach sandals in a basket for your guests to wear in place of shoes.

A Beer Canoe

Beer is a staple of beach weddings because of their accessibility. In place of a boring, traditional cooler, why not turn a small canoe into a makeshift cooler? Not only is it more visually appealing, it acts as a talking piece for your guests while keeping your beers cold.

Tequila Shot Bar

A wedding in Mexico cannot be complete without tequila. Create a colorful tequila bar that invites guests to take a shot during the reception. Liven it up a bit by adding key words that guests should drink whenever that word is mentioned. Think, "bride"!

Unique Seating Arrangements

The beach naturally gives an atmosphere of cosy intimacy. In 2019, you'll see more and more weddings that break the traditional, linear seating arrangements and opt for a unique, more intimate formation. Circular or semi-circular seating patterns help create a feeling of closeness that will complement your laid-back beach vibe.
