·         Evaluate the wedding ceremony area. Make sure that the size is big enough to accommodate your expected number of guests. After assessing the area, decide how you want to arrange the chairs and where you want to set-up the flowers. Make sure that you arrange it in such a way that will make it easier for the people to move and avoid placing them in areas which can obstruct the way.

·         For the reception area, you can use the colors turquoise, navy and pale blue, coral, light yellow and creams. Decide which color will go on the table cloth, flowing fabrics, and accents. You can use large seashells and candles as centerpieces. Use very light fabric for the decoration.
