When you first start planning your beach wedding, you might not immediately think of the accessories that you’re going to be using. But that doesn’t mean that wedding accessories are less important. On the contrary.

Accessories could really enhance the overall look and feel of your wedding ceremony and reception, not to mention you and your bridal party.

Beach Wedding Accessories For The Bride

If you haven’t chosen your wedding gown yet, don’t “waste” time fantasizing about all those beach themed accessories you saw in that bridal magazine somewhere or on Pinterest. At least not just yet 😉

It’s best and recommended, to choose your dress first and then the accessories to go with it. When you get the dress, start thinking about how you can compliment and accentuate your features with accessories. Following are some of the things that you need to start thinking about as soon as you’ve chosen your gown.

  • what you’re going to wear in your hair
  • what you’re wearing around your neck and wrists
  • what style of earrings will go best with your dress
  • what to wear under your dress
  • what style of shoes will go well with your dress

As a general rule, beach wedding bridal hairstyles are often less formal than in other types of weddings. This is why you need stunning hair accessories to really highlight your hair. Below are some of the things that you need to consider when you’re shopping for accessories for your hair.

  • will you be wearing a veil?
  • will you be wearing a tiara?
  • perhaps a simple headband?
  • or just a hair clip?

Next you have to decide on your jewelry. With jewelry, you can either choose a simple, laid back approach that will kind of blend in with your dress or you can choose a more elaborate style, if you want your jewelry to grab the spotlight.

If you’re going to be wearing a really simple, casual wedding gown, then you can dress it up with statement and detailed jewelry which is appropriate for beach weddings.

The actual style of your wedding dress will also dictate what kind of jewelry to choose. For example, if you’re wearing a strapless wedding dress, then an elaborate, statement necklace would look great with it.

Now let’s talk about shoes.

When it comes to beach wedding shoes, the first thing and probably the most important thing that you need to think about is comfort. Fortunately for you, nowadays there are many wedding shops that stock gorgeous low-heeled or flat bridal shoes and even barefoot sandals.

Another moment where you could incorporate your beach theme in your wedding is the garter tossing. That’s if you’re actually gonna do it. This popular cute and cheeky moment is optional, but if you decide to go for it, there are many styles of beach bridal garters that you can choose from.

Other Accessories To Consider

A couple more accessories you might want to consider are wedding hand fans and parasols.

Hand fans have become increasingly popular nowadays. And for good reason too, because they’re not just aesthetically pleasing but they could be a very useful accessory in beach and destination weddings. Because who wants to sit through a wedding ceremony in scorching heat? Hand fans make great wedding favors and have many other uses.

Wedding parasols on the other hand will instantly add elegance and style to your beach wedding. This trend has been picking up nicely with beach brides lately. These stylish accessories will also come in handy if your wedding day is on an especially hot summer day.
