Rustic Beach Chic | Wedding Inspiration

When I think of pretty beach wedding inspiration, I usually think of tropical beaches with the sun beaming down and beautiful petals strewn across the sand [so far, so good right?]… yet I’ve also had holidays where a destination bride and groom have popped to the beach to have a few snaps taken and I’ve always wondered why the [sweaty] bride and groom are dressed up to the nines in garms that wouldn’t be out of place at a British winter wedding… Thankfully, wedding inspiration has moved on heaps and there are many different ways to have a lovely beach shindig.

My beachy wedding inspiration today is… [dum, dum daaar] Rustic Beach Chic! Imagine… windswept beaches with barely a soul and a slightly moody, overcast sky. Bare feet on cool sand. A whimsical, dreamy wedding gown blowing in the breeze. Washed up bottles as wedding favours [with love notes]. Lots of use of organic, earthy props and materials. The colour palette could be washed out whites and rustic browns with a hint of the palest blue and sea-foam green.

    Ooh! So beautiful. I love the slightly windswept feel – much more romantic than Caribbean sunshine. x
