Crystals and Pearls: Seaside – Lux Wedding Inspiration

Can beach wedding be luxurious?

Oh yes, yes they can.

This week’s wedding idea board is not your ordinary seaside wedding. Oh no. This is glam to the max! Dripping pearls, flowy white silk, and dazzling crystals are the critical components necessary for this seaside wedding inspiration.

I’m thinking a late afternoon wedding ceremony would be perfect for catching all of the available sunshine for optimal sparkles, plus making for some fantastic photos. You can never go wrong with wedding photos on the beach!

Here’s what I had in mind:

Navy, Polka Dot and Pearl Wedding

Picture this: It’s the end of summer. You are at a lakeside country club; the sun is getting ready to set for the evening. The “I Dos” are said near a rustic dock, which is perfect for pictures after.  Your favorite vintage car is sitting out front, ready for your grand exit later that evening.

After the ceremony you walk into the banquet room at the country club and see pearly white and polka dot accents throughout the room, and a band is already playing in the background.

I’ve got a retro-y throw back wedding in mind for this event. Retro, but modern. I was trying to capture a little bit of the fifties feeling with this week’s inspiration board. A modern pearl finish cake, a little bit of pearly decorations with some polka dots thrown in for accents.

Possibly my most favorite part of this wedding would be the end. Well not the end of it, but towards the end of the reception. I LOVE the after dinner cordials bar. Set up with the right liquors, fresh hot coffee and hot chocolate, and those chocolate mint stirring sticks everyone loves. How could you not enjoy that?  Anyways, less talking more pictures! I give you this week’s design board:
