Traditional Wedding Gown

A white cover with a colored sash will help color coordinate the whole wedding.

Shells or stakes can be used to outline the aisle and folding chairs can be used for the guests. Casual does not have to mean ugly and this can be prettied with judicious use of colored ribbons.
