Relive the magic of summer with a surf inspired wedding

Are you thinking about wedding themes? Let us help! The turquoise tone of the ocean, the soft sound of waves and a sexy sport now unite in perfect harmony to create the perfect theme inspired by the fun hobby of surfing. If you live on the coast, or are planning a summer wedding for 2015, this style of decor brings together the very best of the natural colors of the sea and the contrast of the summer sun in the most beautiful way. The choice of details is infinite, and we’re so sure this theme will really wow your guests. Have a look at these great ideas!

Whether you’re a true lover of this sport or not, a surf theme will give your wedding a completely unique look. Rather than sticking to the more popular nautical theme for a beach side wedding, we think you should go for this casual and fun theme where colors are the true stars of the show. The choice of vibrant tones, full of energy with a special magical touch will contrast perfectly with the various accessories you have chosen and the bright blue of the sea. Don’t you just love the thought?!

Naturally, one accessory you can not miss is an actual surf board or two. These objects can form a magnificent base to your decor unlike any other and their design is so versatile that they can be used in so many different ways. Your first opportunity will be on your invitations and save the date cards, two perfect ways in which to announce your theme to your guests. If you really want to take this theme to another level, you could decorate your ceremony altar with these fun boards in different patterns and colors. The fun contrast of these at such a traditional part of the day, will be a real wow moment.

Surf boards can be integrated into so many different spaces; for example, as a guest book! A surf board can be placed at a welcome table with a variety of different colored pens on which your guests can write thank you messages and well wishes. This would be such a wonderful and fun addition, especially if you add in some props such as star fish and shells as part of the decor. It isn’t necessary to go over the top and make everything have surf boards or beach props, but focusing on a specific area and dressing it well will make all the difference.

The wedding cake is another area which can easily incorporate this theme and a variety of bright colors. The same goes for your candy table, where biscuits, candy and cupcakes can carry through this look. For your reception, why not arrange a surf board with your guest names and table numbers, this would look fantastic for your seating plan and is another great way of incorporating this fun theme.

Finally, why not take your love for surf through to your photography session. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and add in some surf boards as a background setting. These fun props will set the scene perfectly for some beautiful summery images that you will treasure forever. All of these elements together will create a magical event that your guests will talk about for years to come.
