Choose blues and greens, the colours of the sea, for dresses and flowers, or navy & cream…..or take a more light-hearted approach with seashell decorations and driftwood. From adorable little beach huts, to flip flops, seashells and an “our wedding on the beach” invitation – have fun with your design! In eseence, let your imagination go wild….the possibilities are endless
