Suits for a Beach Wedding

If you’re saying “I do” in the sand, you may be wondering what your guy (or you) should wear.  Weddings don’t have to be barefoot on the beach anymore!  You can rock a sexy suit that fits the climate and your style perfectly while playing up the color palette around you on the ocean.  Consider these great looks for grooms hosting a destination wedding on the beach!

Olive Branch Wedding Ideas

Are you saying I do in the South of France or perhaps in Ojai Valley, CA?  Consider incorporating some natural beauty around you into your big day with the use of olive branches in your design and decor.  Olive branch wedding ideas can be anything from olive branch adorned wedding invitations to organic elements such as a wreath for your flower girl.  You could dress up your sweetheart chairs or embellish your rustic wedding cake with a few pretty stems from these lovely trees.  You or your bridal party could even carry a heart down the aisle in lieu of a bridal bouquet.  Will you use the woods around you to inspire your wedding day decor?

Orange Ombre Weddings

Are you saying I do in the desert?  Or toes in the sand?  If you’re considering somewhere tropical or even off the beaten path, then consider an ombre orange effect for your pretty palette.  It blends with an array of outdoor settings, looks oh-so cool for guys and gals and certainly makes a bold, celebratory statement when you’re considering what kind of fun in the sun you want your guests to have!
