Handmade Beach Wedding Bridal Fashion

A beach wedding, like any theme wedding, can give you a chance to express yourself through your design choices. And your aisle style is probably the biggest signal of your personal style.

Here are 5 handmade design ideas for the beach bride, from head to toe:

Think tropical. Tropical flowers, plant life and birds can be an interesting addition to your theme design…and your bridal wear. Here plumeria flowers are the inspiration for these lovely hair pieces. {handmade by www.heartinhawaii.etsy.com}


Light and airy. Formal or casual, a beach wedding often has a “less is more” feel. But that doesn’t mean you necessarily have to go without. Just think lighter, and in theme. This pearl hair piece, for instance, gives you the presence of a tiara, just lighter. {handmade by www.Handwired.etsy.com}


Beyond shells. Mixing shells designs with other beach inspiration, like the water, will give you a fuller wedding design. These freshwater pearls evoke the theme in a subtle way. {handmade by www.WeddingJewels.etsy.com}


Theme floral. For a fuller theme, look to add tropical flowers or beach elements to your bouquet. Here fabric and shells form a “forever bouquet”, that will last beyond your wedding. {handmade by www.hairbowswonderworld.etsy.com}



Don’t forget your feet. Yes, it can be difficult to get heels on the sand. So if you are looking for sandals, make them beachy with an appropriate accessory like this starfish clip. Another alternative is to go barefoot with beautiful jewel “beach sandals”. {handmade by www.ShellScapes.etsy.com}
