Because we were sooo inspired by one of our favorite recent real weddings, (Maggie and Jesse, who married in a super-pretty Rhode Island soirée) we picked out some fun products that mirrored the feel of their wedding for brides who want a similar look. The vibe: laid-back but polished (he owns a surf shop), feminine but unfussy (the bridesmaids wore mismatched floral dresses), classic (she wore Carolina Herrera) but with a bit of a twist, seaside but not preppy. Everything felt elegant, but not in a stuffy way—there was a breeziness and playfulness in the decor and food (a surfboard as a guest book; mini tacos and margaritas, yum!). And there was lots of turquoise—the bride's favorite color—from the plates at the reception to the the bride's earrings and shoes!
So how do you get this effortless, cool-girl, seaside vibe? We've got you covered, as always! Here are 11 products you need to get that seaside chic aesthetic at your wedding.
