Florida beach weddings offer a unique opportunity to weave elements of the seashore into a ceremony on the sandy beach. Seashells and starfish are some of the most popular elements for couples planning their beach wedding or vow renewal with Suncoast Weddings, premier wedding planners based on the west coast of Florida in Treasure Island. Other items include pearls and sand dollars. One of the most impactful ways to include seashells and starfish is to incorporate them into the bouquet and boutonnieres. Whereas starfish are typically added as accents to a floral bouquet, some stylish bouquets are crafted entirely from seashells, with a variety of shapes and colors to choose from. Likewise, although a boutonniere can be created from only seashells or a simple starfish with a colored ribbon, they are typically paired with a small floral arrangement, being based of style choices seen at a traditional wedding. Seashells and starfish can easily be selected as the main decor theme for a beach wedding or beach vow renewal. Shell or starfish can line the sandy aisle as aisle markers, with larger conch shells being the most popular choice as a seashell as they are distinctive and add a subtle blush color. Starfish can also be tied to the arch or attached to tikis to enhance the ceremony space.
Florida beach wedding packages by Suncoast Weddings can all be tailored and adapted so each ceremony is unique. Elements of the decor can be interchanged such that aisle markers could be white starfish, brown starfish, a mixture of both, conch shells, grasses or any pattern blending the items together. Lanterns are also a popular aisle marker, they are typically filled with unlit candles or sand, seashells, and starfish.
