A ring bearer was first called a pageboy in England, and it is said that he originally carried the bride’s train and a prayer book along with the rings. Today ring bearers sport a tuxedo just like the groom and are easily the cutest members of your bridal party. Traditionally, the ring bearer would carry the rings tied onto a satin pillow, but new trends are on the rise. Couples are putting a new spin on the traditional ring bearer pillow. Also, keep in mind that your ring bearer may take off and run the other way, so try tying fake rings to the pillow just in case! We’ve seen it happen!
Rolling waves, soft sand, and the sun on your skin – an ideal atmosphere for a romantic beach wedding. The top trending ideas for a beach wedding will have your running to dip your toes in for your beach nuptials.
- Wooden Arch
Having your ceremony arch made out of drift wood or birch gives your wedding a natural and romantic feel. Instead of draping the arch in tulle, try nautical rope or fishing net. Even if you simply add flowers and flowing greens, this will lend a hand to the organic beach feel.
- Nautical Items
Having some nautical pieces such as bottles, an anchor, or an antique boat propeller adds a bit of charm to your beach affair. These wedding items can be placed at the bottom of your arch, around your sweetheart or near your cake table will add that extra little touch.
- Air Plants
Air plants are a unique touch for your wedding. They look as if they grew from a coral reef. Adding them into your bouquet will definitely give it that nautical, organic feel. They also look stunning in your hair, making you feel like a beautiful mermaid! Check out air plant and succulent jewelry here! You can also enhance your wedding cake by placing air plants on the tiers.
- Message In a Bottle – Driftwood Signs
A fun activity for your guests to do is write you messages, tie them up in string and place it in a bottle. You can have the instructions painted on a drift wood sign to add that extra beach flair. You can also use driftwood signs to lead your guests to the ceremony, cocktail and reception areas throughout your event.
- Bare Feet
Just think of the amazing feeling that sand provides as you walk along the beach in your bare feet. Instead of wearing shoes, beach brides are now slipping into foot jewelry for their walk down the aisle. These pieces look absolutely stunning! They come in gold, silver, pearl, and many more varieties. Some brides even have little starfish on their jewelry. These pieces also make great gifts for bridesmaids; a little token that they can even wear after the wedding.
