Breezy, romantic, and eclectic, these ocean inspired wedding ideas we have for you today are absolutely beautiful! A color palette made up of shades of pale blue, peach, and persimmon add a beautifully colorful perspective to the typical “beach” wedding day look. Elements such as starfish, shells, and driftwood are a must, while touches of gold glitter and soft, romantic fabric adds a uniqueness to the ocean inspired design created by A Rose Designs. You definitely don’t want to miss the cake inspired by the beauty of ocean waves, sitting atop a platform of driftwood, and the bride’s ethereal, flowing gowns, all captured beautifully by Jessica Connery Photography.
Beautifully described by A Rose Designs & Jessica Connery Photography:
Loose tendrils of hair escape from a soft braid as her veil catches a gust of wind. Tall grasses wave in the breeze as the late afternoon sun creates shadows on her irises from her eyelashes. From the beautiful hand-torn invitations, the color of delicate sea glass, to the pieces of driftwood delicately framing the centerpieces, this ocean inspired wedding brings a breath of salty air much needed after winter.
The cake was conceptualized with the froth of the ocean in mind. Poured sugar crests over the top of the cake like a wave. Hand-painted fondant crabs cling to the edges and delicate treasures of the sea adorn the tiers on this ethereal delectable dessert.
A dazzling 360° table design delights the eyes from all angles. Adopting the ebb and flow of the ocean the table decor weaves from end to end of the table. Bright florals, unfinished wood boxes, sea glass, vintage-style fishing net floats, lanterns, driftwood, and soft brass candleholders all come together as gentle references to coastal life. Using a farm table with french country chairs preserves the organic feel of the tablescape.
The first featured dress is a godet flared Skirt gown from the Alfred Angelo Bridal Collection. With it’s beautiful beading, sheer yoke, and sweetheart neckline this sophisticated wedding dress brings an elegance to the wedding style. A colorful headpiece and a soft braid were added for style and harmony. Soft makeup and a dash of bold lashes complete the balance between polished and carefree.
The second featured dress highlights a mermaid fit-and-flare style with a beaded bodice and sweetheart neckline. A unique sheer back yoke balances the the softly flared skirt. A fingertip length veil allows the soft breeze to showcase itself as the veil lifts and floats delicately around the bride.
A lush, flowing, hand-tied bouquet mimics the coastal flowers as they sway in the breeze. Soft caraluna garden roses and velvety dusty miller balance the pops of blue delphinium, and poppy pink roses. Hand torn and carefully died muslin ribbons wrap the stems carefully creating a comfortable hand hold for this hefty bouquet.
