A beach is the perfect wedding venue to exchange vows and celebrate your love amid the beauty of nature. The atmosphere is inherently romantic and serene, but the decor you choose can make for an even more memorable event. Discover a few decoration ideas below that will enhance your beach wedding.

How to Decorate a Beach Wedding Venue

1. Choose Tropical Flowers

Tropical flowers underscore the beach theme and add pops of vibrant color. Choose flowers native to the region for an authentic look.

In Hawaii, adorn the wedding venue with orchids, ti leaves, plumerias, anthuriums, white ginger, tuberoses, and yellow hibiscus flowers. Keep in mind that wedding flowers go beyond the bride's bouquet and the standing arrangements; any boutonnieres, corsages, and hair accents should also contain the same tropical flowers to maintain the theme.

2. Install a Wedding Arch

3. Use Mood-Enhancing Lighting

If you're getting married during a Hawaiian sunset, be mindful that light is going to be limited by the end of the ceremony. To heighten the mood and maintain guest safety, use plenty of candles in hurricane lamps or strings of fairy lights. Other popular beach lighting options include hanging lanterns, torches, and solar-powered lights lining aisles and pathways.
