Design Your Own Beach WeddingEasy DIY Beach Weddings can save $1000!

For 15 years we offered an archway, tiki torches, palm trees, a table with music, white runner and  chairs  with our ceremony packages.  We called it the Polynesian Princess beach Set Up.  Our beach brides would have fun adding their own personal touches.  Each year they got more creative with their accessories.  They added creative signs, ribbons sea shells, lanterns, shepherd hooks, flowers and more.  With the convenience of Amazon Prime, its easier than ever for DIY Brides to create their own beautiful beach wedding!

These are our recommendations for a simple, fun & romantic beach set up.  We make a few cents as Amazon affiliate marketers and that helps the Beach Bride Sea Turtle Rescue initiative!


The Arbor

A quality archway is the centerpiece of your beach wedding decor.  We recommend wood or a durable vinyl for the beach.  It has a natural look & feel and does not attract lightning.  A strong wooden arbor makes it easy to attach decorations and won’t be affected by wind.  Many couples bring the arbor home with them and put in their garden! These are 3 of our favorite Beach Wedding Arbors for 2021 Brides:

Chairs, Table & Music

Most beach weddings last about 10 minutes.  We recommend enough chairs to create a VIP section for parents, grandparents, guests with a disability, expecting mothers, parents with infants and guests over the age of 60.  4 – 8 chairs are enough to create a natural aisle through the sand.  It is perfectly acceptable for guests to stand during the ceremony.

The rhythm of the sea is a beautiful soundtrack but couples that would like their 1st Dance on the beach will need a sound system.  We use a compact blue tooth unit that is easy to connect to a smart phone.  Place the system on a table for better sound quality.  The table can also be used for a Sand Unity Ceremony.  Here are 3 good values for durable wedding chairs, table & waterproof sound systems:

Sunset Wedding Accessories

Complete your unique beach wedding design with custom accessories.  Beach legal solar powered tiki torches & LED lanterns on shepherd’s hooks are perfect for twilight wedding ambience:

Aisle Decorations

An attractive runner carpet can enhance your aisle way.  We recommend a carpet with grommets that easily secure the runner to the beach.  Conch Shells & Sea Stars are beautiful & natural enhancements for ceremonies on the beach:
