Sarasota Beach Wedding Tips & Ideas

Casual but Elegant

Sarasota Beach Weddings are more relaxed and should be considered as a big part of the wedding theme. The relaxed atmosphere of the beach can be part of the wedding theme bedrock in which other wedding theme ideas are based. No need to require your bridesmaids to wear all the same dresses. Just pick a color and then let them choose a dress that best compliments their body.

With bare toes and casual footwear for a beach wedding, use some unique foot jewelry which accents your hair piece.

There is always a wind at the beach, that is a constant. So prepare yourself by choosing a beach wedding hairdo that will look good after the wind, sand and sea spray have blown through it.

We do not mean your preparation should be to pin all the tresses in your hair as tightly as possible and spray a whole bottle of hair product to keep everything in place.

The best hairstyle for a beach wedding should be low maintenance and which not only continues to look great but even looks better when it gets wind blown. Oceanside weddings lend them-self to a more casual hairstyle. Start thinking about big cascading curls and a half up-do.

A beach wedding is not the place or look for a tight up-do, think about casual and simple hairstyles when having a beach wedding.

Hair Pieces

Bridal hair pieces are popular for Sarasota beach weddings because there is usually a wind that makes long veils a bad idea. These hair pieces can be very ornate. Some of the most beautiful hair pieces were made back in the 30’s and are very popular again – plus it fits into the “something old” category.

The bride can expand on this 1930’s ornate jewelry and continue it as a total “1930’s” wedding theme. Your dream wedding in Sarasota is all their in your imagination, just let it out.
