Maybe you don't care about the latest styles and trends. Perhaps you just want to relax, unwind and have a good time. If that's the case, why not head to the beach? Beach weddings are extremely popular for the too-cool-to-care kind of couple, and the setting practically mandates that everyone has a good time.

There's nothing quite like saying "I do" with your toes in the surf, so make it a casual affair with bare feet or flip-flops, skirts or short dresses for the ladies and short-sleeved shirts for the guys. After the ceremony, gather around a fire pit for an oyster roast, or head inside to a beach-front club for drinks and dancing.

Never been to a beach without full scuba gear? Your tastes might run toward our next idea.
