The pacifier is usually made of wood and covered with cloth and foliage, symbolizing the altar and accommodating the bride and groom, the groomsmen and the priest (or whoever is celebrating this wedding).

3) Wooden chairs and benches coincide with the climate of the beach, in addition to accommodating guests and adapting perfectly to the area. Stylized cushions can be added to the seats, making the decoration even more distinctive and offering more comfort.
