Saying “I do” to a beach wedding doesn’t have to mean you’re barefoot in the sand. Barefoot or not, consider the oodles of options for a statement piece that is your ceremony arch, from billowing in the wind fabrics to materials found locally near the shore; let your ceremony design set the tone for the fabulous and oh-so swanky beachside affair to follow.
If you’re a romantic traditionalist then take advantage of the wind factor and incorporate light chiffon fabric to sway against the sea.
