2. Message in a bottle

Who says that you need to have a traditional guest book? Why not have a little fun and get your guests to leave their well wishes to the newly married couple as a letter in a bottle?

3. Shoe basket and complimentary beach towel

If you are having an informal type of beach wedding, in which anything goes, then why not have a shoe basket for your guests? This can be a large wicker basket placed on the beach for your guests to kick off their shoes in, allowing them to have some fun enjoying the wedding reception and dancing the night away. You can also include a complimentary beach towel.

4. Alternative to flowers

What happens if you want a decorative beach wedding reception, but no flowers? Well, the solution is very easy as you simply use the natural resources on offer to you. String together sea shells as decorative bunting. Build sandcastles on the beach to decorate the reception area. Use driftwood as decorations and make it a table feature.
