what you decide should depend upon how public the beach is (and how busy) and also who will be setting it all up for you. There are companies that will do it but they can be pricey. If you have some good mates who don't mind setting it all up for you before hand and staying around to keep it looking ok that would be great.

You can buy bamboo flares and if the wedding is likely to go on late they could even be lit but that could be dicey if it was abit windy. Bali flags look good. Place 4 to make a square where you want the actual ceremony to be, and define the "aisle" with pot plants, flares,or whatever else you decide. If you are going to use rose petals make sure you buy them from either ebay or somewhere similar so they don't cost the earth and get them put down at the very last minute becasue the slightest breeze and they're gone. Be mindful of tides and don't set up so close to the water that the incoming tide will ruin everything. Also be mindful of which direction the sun will be. Set up so that none of the key players are looking into the sun.

Speak to your photographer or celebrant if you have chjosen one and see if he/she has any ideas. They will have been to lots of ceremonies and will have some good suggestions I'm sure

cheers Sheila

I have bought 2 large bali flags which will define an area outside of where we will stand (we will be in front of them) and then i am thinking of painting some wooden stakes white and putting them in the ground with blue ribbon or chiffon material joining them together to define the aisle!!

I saw this in a magazine but done in yellow with hand made yellow and white bunting and flowers attached to each stake. It looked amazing!
