Cheat Sheet: BiCol's Wedding Planner On Throwing A Beach-Set Nuptial A La #ColeenGotTheBill!

Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia are the latest celebrity couple to get married this year. After revealing that they were together in 2014, the couple made their union official with a dreamy beach wedding at Balesin Island Club.

And although beach weddings are popular, that of the new Mr. and Mrs. Crawford proved to be far from typical! We zero in on some of the most unique parts about their big day, in case you too are considering throwing a similar celebration!

1. Change up your altar. While many would expect the altar to be stationed seaside, the newlyweds showed us that it’s just as beautiful to position it poolside—especially when the pool is as big as theirs! BiCol exchanged vows at Balesin’s Spanish-inspired venue called Costa del Sol. They upped the ante even more by commissioning event planning team Gideon Hermosa and event planning team and event designer team La Belle Fête to deck the area with luxurious flowers.  

2. Ditch the floral wall. Speaking of flowers, Gideon Hermosa revealed that the backdrop used by Coleen (right before walking down the mirror-glass aisle) wasn’t a standard wall, but a table. They covered said table with over-the-top flora in vases, mulitple candles, and petals spread all around its floor. This was just one section of the wedding. The rest of the spaces, from the ceremony down to the reception, were equally stunning…and very ‘Grammable!

3. Dress accordingly. Billy and Coleen were intent on holding a summer wedding and took careful consideration into what they were going to wear. But they also made sure to do the same for their guests. Friends and family came in attire that was reflective of the gorgeous coastal hues, comfortable to move about in, and formal enough for one of local entertainment’s biggest “I Do’s” of 2018!

4. Do not forget the rings! This is almost a no-brainer, but two days before the wedding Billy posted an Instagram story in which he says, “So, we're all set, everything's ready for the big day. But we forgot one thing: to buy the rings.” #Oops, much? While we’re still not sure if he meant it as a joke, rings should be, at least in our opinion, among the first aspects to settle.
