With the popularity of small intimate weddings, it's no surprise that many modern brides prefer destination weddings over extravagant city weddings in 5-star hotels. Not only are they expensive (averaging between $1000 - 3000 just for the venue itself), but they are also harder to plan. For majority of the brides, this is their first wedding with no experience on how to put together such a massive operation. Therefore, it's inevitable that you need a wedding planner for either the day of or full service, which is another expensive budget to add on. Don't get me wrong, I think hiring a wedding planner is worth the money because they put their hearts and souls into planning your dream wedding, but how many brides have the extra money to hire one when they have to pay for other essentials like the dress, food, alcohols, and photographers for the wedding already?

In California, we are blessed with hundreds of miles of sandy beaches and shorelines so having a low budget wedding with amazing photos is an easy dream come true. For the reason, we were excited work with not one, but two talented photographers on a beach wedding shoot to show brides what you need to get swoon-worthy pictures without the hefty price tags for your wedding.

For a causal beach wedding, our Ju.Lee Endless Love Bridal Collection is perfect for this type of wedding style paring a delicate long sleeve lace top with a soft tulle skirt. Our Honey lace top is sold unlined to give brides the flexibility to wear their preferred undergarment. We recommend a lacy corset bustier underneath the lace top for a sexy fitted look. Our soft 5 layer Cupid tulle skirt matches gracefully for this serene beach backdrop.

Looking to add a touch of bling to the overall style? How about a cluster of metallic bangles to make it fun!

Many brides ask what to wear when getting married on the beach. I suggest strolling along the beach bare feet! You can also try dressy flip flop or wedges if you want the extra height. Avoid heels because they will sink into the sand.

To keep the over all casual beach look consistent, we love a mismatched color suit for the groom. Not only it's fun but it makes the style more creative.

What's more romantic than a flower crown? We love this statement piece created by Seascape Flowers with the matching flower bouquet! The paisley red shawl is not only functional but adds a pop of style to the white wedding dress.
