Inspiration | Coastal Chic

 

With England's reputation for somewhat unreliable weather (even in the peak of summer!), you'd be forgiven for overlooking a beach theme. That said, the great British seaside offers a wealth of opportunity, and if you are fortunate enough to be getting married near the coast, the backdrop can provide a wealth of inspiration for a coastal chic theme.

I love this dreamy palette of neutral tones with cool grey and blue hues, incorporating natural elements such as wood and stone. Seashells, pebbles and starfish can be used in decor, and can carry the theme through beautifully, from styling your stationery to creating unique place settings.

In keeping with the casual yet elegant look, silk ribbons lend a beautiful floaty feel to bouquets, and silk table runners can extend the look through to the design of the tables.
