Just imagine the waves on the sand, the breeze in your hair and all of your closest peeps surrounding you as you say your vows against a gorgeous sunset over the ocean…absolutely perfect. Here’s a little inspiration to help you plan your romantic evening by the ocean.

Get this look! Beach Sunset

Color Is Key
Color is key for creating the perfect beach sunset wedding theme. Lucky for you there are lots of colors to choose from. We’ve focused our sunset look around aqua with some hints of yellow and pink. You can delve into a brighter palette if you like but we were very smitten with the Watercolor Sunset Invitation, which inspired the look and feel of this style story. Notice how this invitation is actually a self-mailer (no envelopes needed!) and it has room for online rsvp information and reception details. This is a beautiful find for a great price and it fits the sunset beach theme perfectly but take a look at the entire collection of destination wedding invitations to find exactly what you want.

Incredibly Romantic
A wedding at sunset is romantic no matter where you are but being on the beach adds a whole new level of beauty. The surroundings are already gorgeous, which means you need very little decoration. Some brightly colored flowers, fun wedding favors, throw in some sparklers for a little excitement, and you’ve got a fabulous seaside soirée. Add a personal touch to the reception tables with custom wedding napkins with a tropical design, and guests are sure to be impressed with your attention to detail.

Just Relax
What’s the point of a beach wedding besides getting married? Relaxing! Chances are you’ve chosen a beach location because you wanted something a little more relaxed and casual than the traditional wedding celebration. We completely understand. So let a little r & r become a part of your wedding theme. String some white lights to set the mood, keep the decorations simple and natural, and choose key focal points like the wedding cake for drawing people in. Guests will be mingling, laughing and relaxing in no time.
