- Use the wedding location as inspiration for the colors you choose: Icy blues, coral pinks, and sunset hues make great seaside palettes.
- Try sandy, natural tones—raw linen and canvas, natural rope and jute, bleached wood—the colors that come straight from the shore.
- Add metallics. Typical beachy colors like coral, teal, white, and cream get an elegant upgrade when paired with silver, pewter, gold, or rose gold.
- An all-white party on the beach can be the epitome of chic, especially when you ask your guests to wear white, turning them into the ultimate design statement, as well.
