Beach theme wedding in April 2012?

What do you think???

I'm getting married at Water's Edge in Westbrook CT on April 21, 2012.
I 'm having a hard time make up my mind about wedding theme. My wedding color is tiffany blue and white.
I was thinking to do beach theme wedding starfish and seashells then i think it's kinda weird beach in the spring. Then i think about spring theme, Cherry blossom!
Would like some recommendation from you girls! Thanks so much!

    I think a beach theme would be fine for an early spring wedding. I wouldn't think twice as a guest. I also think the cherry blossom idea is great. Really, it's up to you. Does your FI have any input?

    Since you are getting married at waters edge I think it is completely appropriate. Especially if you are planning on getting married outside overlooking the water. Also, it's right before beach season so it will get everyone in beach mode.

    I am using a similar color combonation and also have white starfish as part of our decor. I am having a destination wedding, but I also think because you are having your wedding at Water's Edge that a beachy theme would look great no matter what the season!

    I agree, the reception site almost determines your theme most of the time and I believe that a beach theme in April is fine. 


    BTW we have the same wedding date!!

    Thank you all !
    If the weather is nice on my wedding date, we are getting married outside at the lower lawn over looking the water! and this's why I want to do beach theme wedding.
    I jwant to do the escort card with starfish and use the seashell as the ring pillow. This just little things I thought about!

    cdbishop: how are you wedding plan going? I remember that we have the same date because you got DJ Melee and i didn't lol...I'm still looking for a dj though :(

    I think when you're marrying at a location right on the beach that it doesn't matter what time of year it is to do a beach theme. I personally LOVE beach theme and am doing somewhat beachy and getting married this December in Newport. The beach is there all year round so why not?!
