The scenery of a wedding location is important especially if you are planning and preparing for a destination wedding. An outdoor garden is a common location for weddings while a seaside setting is also preferred by couples who want to celebrate the most important day of their lives in an extraordinary location where they can enjoy the company of their guests.
Planning for a beach wedding can be very exciting as you’ll have many choices and options for your designs, decorations and favors. Combine traditional wedding elements with seashells, colored sand, beach balls, colorful bouquets and more. You may also decorate the ceremony area with starfish and raffia, feature nautical-inspired centerpieces on every table and write table placecards on sand dollars.
To complete the accessories for your ideal beach wedding reception, choose this Lilian Rose stainless steel cake knife and server set adorned with seashells and pearls. This set would be perfect for the cake cutting ceremony during your seaside resort wedding reception.

Celebratory drinking at weddings is a timeless tradition observed worldwide. At the wedding reception, guests drink and offer toasts to the newlyweds to give recognition and honor to their union. Toasts are commonly offered by the wedding’s host or hostess.

The wedding attendants, a special guest, a close relative or a friend of the couple may offer toasts but the “host offers the first toast” rule is also observed as in other celebrations and functions. The host or the person giving the toast can get the attention of all the guests by standing and raising his glass.

More than that, the bride and groom may also keep these as mementoes of their special day. And if they are sentimental, they could always reuse these on their 10th, 25th or 50th anniversary celebrations.
This chair sash set will work perfectly with a silver theme, as well. Black and silver themes are good choices for those with modern tastes, and there are some brides who even go for all-black wedding themes. A perfect way to complement those themes!
