Most people agree that there’s just something so romantic about the beach: the feeling of sand between your toes, the sounds of waves breaking on the shore, and the smell of salty sea air is so intoxicating. These are just some of the reasons that engaged pairs choose to host their nuptials on or around the beach – especially if they’re getting married in the spring or summer. The beauty of the ocean is unparalled in the world, and it can bring some peace and happiness into someone’s life when they need it most, or even on one of the happiest days of their life.

If you’re considering having an oceanside ceremony or reception, you’re likely trying to figure out the logistics of placement. Some shy away from having the event right on the sand because of the assumed problems it might present, but those hurdles can easily be vaulted in a number of ways. To gain event and décor ideas for your own beachy day, see the pictures below from real weddings and styled shoots to help with your vision, and be sure to click on each photo for further inspiration.
