Here is a list of the top water wedding ideas you can choose from for your big day:

Swimming Pools

A unique concept for sure, weddings that take place poolside is a great way to pay homage to the fun summer activity of swimming in the pool and sipping cocktails as you soak up some sun.

You can use swimming pools in any kind of venue, from a backyard to a fancy resort, simply pick the background setting that works best for you and decorate to your hearts content.


When it comes to weddings by the water, nothing beats the classic wedding by the sea. With sand at your feet and the ocean as your background, weddings by the sea have been a popular choice for many years.

Ceremonies by the ocean give off a relaxed feeling while still showcasing modern elegance and grace.

For people who tend to spend most of their lives in the city, a trip to the beach is perfect for any summer wedding.


For those who have an interest in a wedding by the water, but are not too keen on going to the ocean and getting sand in their shoes, a lakeside wedding might be just the thing you are looking for.

A lakeside wedding gives off a calm and elegant feeling, and depending on your decorations you can feel like a fairy or a swan princess walking down the aisle.

Lakeside weddings can be for any season, but when the summer sun hits that water just right you will have the best views and the most memorable photos ever made.


For couples who have a strong affinity and love for marine life, having your wedding in an aquarium will create fond and everlasting memories, not to mention provide a totally unique setting.
