This walkway to the beach is like something out of a fairytale. As a matter of fact, if Ariel from The Little Mermaid were human (and real), we are pretty sure she’d say ‘I do’ here.

The wooden boardwalk and lantern-dotted walkway make this venue ideal for sunset or evening ceremonies too.

If your budget isn’t huge, a simple fabric arch hung between two trees is a stunning option. Add flowers in vases and around the arch to add a further element of beauty.

The Dress

Tropical beach weddings are made for dresses with a bohemian edge. Whether you want something all-out boho, or classic with a subtle beachy hint, go for white and flowing.

These dresses are made to be worn on white sands…
