Receptions can be traditional or, as you’re getting married on the beach, why not consider a beach-side reception on the shore. A toast to the happy couple and a cake extends the magic of the day and the location cannot be beaten.
Here are some ideas – we love the idea of using the beach as an inspiration. Seashells, starfish, anchors – all work really well to tie in with your reception theme.
