For a winter time beach wedding you may think of making it more formal. A hotel or inn overlooking the seaside is perfect for a beach wedding in the middle of winter. Pick a wedding reception hall with a beautiful ocean view and the wedding decoration will be the key to tying your theme in. Although it may by too cold to step out on to the sand, you can bring the sand indoors. Sprinkle sand and sea shells on your reception tables. Serve lobster bisque or shrimp primavera. Seafood is a must at a beach side wedding. Use seashell hors d'oeuvre picks and tropical parasols to add that perfect beach wedding touch. If it's a casual affair, ask your guests to dress for the beach or Caribbean's, but make sure to keep your room warm.
If you are planning a beach wedding in the middle of winter in a warm part of the world, like California or Mexico, this is much easier to plan out.

You can make your beach wedding very formal and elegant, yet incorporate the beauty of the sea into your wedding. You can also take the whole gang to Mexico or Hawaii and make it a fun casual affair with flowers in your hair.
