Wedding Inspiration: A low-key, vintage inspired seaside party!

The first time my fiancé and I started to discuss what we envisioned our wedding to be, we were right on the same page. Forget fancy details and stuffy venues. We were on a budget and to keep costs down, we knew we were going to get married somewhere free. Yes, free.

We live in a beach town in Florida. Getting married on the beach is pretty common (though I, myself, have never attended a ceremony on the sand!) and can be free if held on a beach where a permit is not required. We have spent much of our free time on the beach and continue to have date nights at beach bars. We are blessed to live where we do, and getting married on the beach seemed simple enough. The only cost would be renting décor (if we decided to use any) and an officiant.

My fiancé actually thought of the color scheme for this beachy wedding—aqua & peach. These colors remind him of a beautiful sunset and are quite perfect for our personalities.

Now that we knew our colors, I started thinking of the details. I was drawn to things that were personal, a little funky, and a little old. I definitely wanted vintage touches around.

Like a typewriter for a guestbook.

And a vintage style wedding dress.

Dress 1 |  Dress 2 |   Dress 3

No, none of those are my dresses but I wanted something ivory in a mermaid style.

With lots and lots of rhinestones.

Now, those are actually my shoes!

Now that we know the overall idea of the wedding, it is a lot easier to work on the planning. I hope you can find inspiration and thrifty ideas as I plan a party on the beach that will be the most amazing celebration my friends and family have seen. =) Next Up: We pick a venue!

    I must know what the shoes are! :) My dress is pretty classic with a little sparkle, and I want to go all out on sparkly shoes. :)

    • They are Nine West that I found on clearance at Marshall's. They are actually replicas of Jimmy Choo…and there are a lot of other designers that have made similar styles! good luck!
