A beach wedding is one of the most fun and quirky type of weddings. Having your marriage officiated on the beach can be romantic and picturesque. However, planning a beach wedding can get a little taxing when compared to its generic counterpart. There are many important things to take into consideration and if they aren’t looked at properly, you might miss out on the picture perfect beach wedding that you’ve dreamed of. Following are the list of points to keep in mind while planning your dream beach wedding.
Inform Your Guests
Your guests need to know about the location so that they can plan their stay and wardrobe accordingly, as most of them will be travelling with toddlers. The last thing you and your guests need is sand in their shoes and clothes. Make sure that you inform your guests about the location you’ve picked so that they can buy appropriate clothes and shoes. Request your guests to wear warm weather clothes and shoes that can manage sand. That way, they won’t have to worry about their clothes getting ruined and will be well prepared for the venue and weather.
Choose Your Outfit Carefully
This is a must – especially for the bride. Be sure to choose a dress that can endure sand, wind and ocean spray. Try not to go for long flowing dresses or heels. Opt for shorter dresses and flat shoes (or no shoes). Grooms can go in for a lightweight suit and removable shoes. Lightweight suits and shorter dresses are the best for beach weddings since the weather is mostly hot and sunny with a lot of refreshing sea breeze.
Have A Backup Location Ready
Outdoor weddings can get a bit dicey due to the unpredictability of the weather. It could be sunny one moment and rainy the next. Make sure that you have a backup location in case the weather plays spoilsport to your beach wedding. If you’re getting married at a resort, keep any hall available there as a backup location for your wedding ceremony. For public beach weddings, try to keep the ceremony at a marriage hall nearby so that you can easily move things there without too much hassle. Be sure to inform your guests as well so that they know where to go in case the situation arises.
If you plan on getting married on a public beach or at a beach resort, make sure that you get the necessary permissions to have the wedding there. Make a list of beaches in your locality that could be ideal for tying the knot and approach the concerned office for permission in prior. If you’re getting married at a private resort, speak to the resort manager and work it out accordingly. The management will make sure that your destination wedding is nothing less than a stunning fairytale.
Expect A Lot Of Breeze
There will be a lot of breeze at the beach so make sure that you factor this into your plans. While breeze is always good, it can mess up some of your decorations and lighter objects. So ensure that you have certain light objects weighed down and that your dresses and suits can handle the incoming breeze. Keep lighter objects like candles, flowers and place cards weighed down properly. Tell your announcers to speak loudly and clearly during the ceremony and reception.
