The beach has become one of the most popular places for weddings to take place in recent years and it is easy to see why. Beaches are super romantic; the salty air and the sound of the waves create a heady mix of freedom and excitement that can never be replicated in doors. The beach is also a place to come to have fun, and starting a marriage there promises the same kind of attractiveness, years full of laughter and love. It is a relaxed setting which sets the tone of the wedding, and guest can dress as smart or casually as you want.
But planning a beach wedding does come with unique circumstances and so it does pay to be well prepared. The following is a guide for planning the best beach wedding possible:
While this may seem like an obvious one, choosing your date far in advance is important, and means you are more likely to get your chosen venue. Depending on what you are looking for, it could be better to plan your date around big public holiday to avoid the masses of people, and higher prices. Knowing what the weather is like during certain times of the year (hurricane season, for example) is helpful, too.
You need to choose between having the ceremony on a public beach or a private beach and weigh up the pros and cons of each. A private beach may offer you more freedom than a public beach, but it may be harder to find people willing to let you get married on their land. Working with a wedding planner may give you access to more options.
Choose to have your reception somewhere in walking distance, in a place that is able to cater with regards to sound and food, for the amount of guests you will have.
Having a beach wedding can be one of the most rewarding experiences ever, but there are challenges, however if you follow the guide above, the process should be hassle free and ensuring a perfect service.
