Decorating Your Wedding Reception Location With Beachy Elegance

This section is all about beach-themed wedding decorations. It will cover everything from the invitations to the centerpieces and favors.

The first step in decorating your wedding reception location with beachy elegance is picking a theme. From there, you need to decide on a color palette for your event, and then start adding items that fit that palette.

The next step is choosing which details are most important to you and then choosing decorations accordingly.

For example, if you want a more rustic feel, you can use driftwood or seashells as centerpieces instead of flowers or candles. If you want to make it feel like a party at the shoreline, add in some surfboards or sand toys as decoration pieces.”

How to Choose the Best Outfits for Your Guests So They Stay Comfortable in the Heat and Shine

1. Dress them in light, loose-fitting clothes that are made from natural fabrics such as cotton, linen or silk. These clothes will allow their skin to breathe and will help prevent heat exhaustion.

2. Choose light colours or neutral tones so they don’t overheat in the sun and wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the glare of the sun.

3. Give them a hat with a brim to keep their head cool and cover up any sensitive areas like tattoos or scars with clothing or sunscreen if needed.

4. Make sure they have a bottle of water on hand at all times and offer an umbrella if needed as well as sunscreen with SPF of 30+.

Masters of light!

Selecting a photographer is pretty daunting with the number of online blogs and websites to go through. What stood out for us about Will and Lauren was their ability to handle almost any lighting condition. Will and Lauren really are masters of light! Both our ceremony and reception were held in a beautiful Vancouver restaurant, where lighting was dark and intimate. Looking at our photos, they really captured the feel of the room, but you can see everything that's going on.
