What Colors are Best for a Beach Wedding?

Your best beach wedding colors will depend on everything from theme and style to location and season. For example, a modern wedding will differ from a boho-chic celebration — regardless of the sandy stretch of beach.

Of course, not all beaches are the same. A waterfront wedding in Southampton evokes a very different vibe than a tropical beach wedding in Hawaii. Use the local landscape to find inspiration for everything from floral arrangements and greenery to fabrics and vases.

Make sure to ask your wedding planner and design team for help narrowing down your wedding color palette. After all, your wedding colors will tie your wedding celebration together as well as create the backdrop for your cherished wedding photos.
