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. beach wedding archesPhotos by: Top Row – Left: Erin Hearts Court, Right: PhotoShoots Vallarta via The Dazzling Details, Middle Row – Left: Photos In Cancun, Right: Jose Villa via The Bride’s Cafe, Bottom Row: Paco & Betty via Green Wedding Shoes

If you’re a bit more of a modern bride or groom, opt for dark wood materials, asymmetrical fabric designs, flags, or even a bright pop of color against the ocean blue.beach wedding ceremoniesPhotos by: Top Row: Katie Neal Photo via Green Wedding Shoes, 2nd Row – Comfort Studio via Ruffled Blog, 3rd Row – Left: Weddings by Color, Right – The Knot, Bottom Row – The Bride’s Cafe
