The ceremony and reception decor I chose for this local “destination” wedding is based on the use of color.  Ideally at least some portion of the event can be held on a beach, near a beach, or perhaps with a view of the beach… however if a beach is not part of the picture then be sure to use plenty of cool Grecian beach tones in the decor.  You’ll see in the image board below a lot of blue and turquoise in the linens for the ceremony and reception.  I love the idea of mixing the tones to give a fluid ocean feeling to the decor.  Don’t forget to splash in a bit of bold red and yellow to keep with the Greek theme!

While the Grecian inspired invitations are being fully developed stay tuned for a fun post on cake topper ideas!  Those of you who have taken a look at the “about” page may have already gotten a sneak peek!
