In case you missed the news…St. Augustine Beach and the old city are open! However, because of the challenges engaged couples have experienced during the 2020 pandemic and uncertainty when making wedding plans, it has been hard to keep up on the status of popular destinations. In Florida, though, many of your favorite beach cities and other attractions are open. So, if you are planning to get married on a Florida beach in 2021, we would like to share some of the up and coming trends for weddings and how you can use them in your ceremony theme and decor.
Romantic St. Augustine: perfect beach venue
Our favorite thing about a beach wedding in St. Augustine are those first warm sea breeze winds and sunny skies that you experience when you arrive in Florida. Also, sunshine, the sea and warm air coordinates with any wedding color scheme! Our beach wedding packages allow you to choose your dream color design no matter what time of year. So here you go, get inspired:
Colors and Trends for 2021
GREENERY: Green will be everywhere in 2021, especially in natural leaves and greenery. Since many couples will be getting married outdoors, green makes sense and we can take full advantage of its natural beauty on the beach. Our Tropical Distinctive Design wedding package is full of greenery: palms and bird of paradise leaves will line your sandy aisle-way. The large palm fronds that adorn the four post bamboo canopy are especially stunning in this design. It makes your first kiss as a married couple so special and you will never forget how you felt on your beach wedding day. If you choose to add the option of our professional outdoor wedding photographer, you will not be disappointed in the extra pictures and poses you get to download and keep forever…and it only costs $350 for that additional time.
ORANGE: We are hearing that bright colors will be trending in 2021, with the spotlight on orange. As you can see again, our Tropical Distinctive Design package in orange is as stunning as the original design. Look at the color against the sand and emerald ocean water! This unforgettable color scheme will delight your guests and family with its beach themed splendor!
LILAC and LAVENDER: Walking down the aisle with this beautiful color in a bridal bouquet is so elegant. The bride below loved it so much she used it in most of her ceremony decorations and even in her wedding dress! What an eye-popping and stunning color! With 20 color choices available, choosing a bold blue as an accent color for her wedding arch draping as well as her bridesmaids really made this Destiny wedding design stand out. We were delighted to put this together for our beach bride and everyone was so happy with how it turned out!
LIGHT BLUE: Blue is always a popular color for weddings, and in 2021 it is reported that brides are using light blues such as powder blue and cornflower blue in their decorations. Darker blues are only used as accents. Quite often blue is combined with white for a simple beach wedding and some brides even use black bamboo to make it pop. Take a look at this stunning Destiny bamboo wedding arch for this beautiful couple below, which starts at $1550 in St. Augustine (without permits or parking).
BRIGHT and BOLD: According to theknot.com, red, teal, pink and yellow are going to be popular as not only accent colors, but even as the main color of 2021 weddings. Unexpected and fun will be the theme for these couples and guess what…bright colors work great on a beach! Many of our beach brides love teal and it is one of our most requested colors. The couple below used in this bright and gorgeous Coral Distinctive Design, which starts at $1895 in St. Augustine.
This yellow decor with orchids looks incredible against the cloudless, blue Florida sky as this couple recites their vows on their special day.
Of course, teal never goes out of style at a beachfront wedding venue. This Teal Distinctive Design is the perfect choice. It just pops against the slightly darker sand on the St. Augustine beaches!
EARTH TONES & NEUTRALS: Always in style, the soft and elegant themes of ivory, white and dusty rose is so calming and perfect on a St. Augustine beach. Textured accessories such as shells, starfish, driftwood or in this case branches can add depth to a neutral wedding and enhance the beachfront setting for your guests. Many brides choose this Natural Distinctive Design complete package for a Boho wedding.
