Beach Wedding Tips


There is something incredibly special about standing bare- foot in front of an endless ocean declaring your eternal love. Beach weddings have a romantic, effortless feel to them — but they are anything but effortless. In fact, these weddings take a considerable amount of planning.
 
Make sure your nuptials go off without a hitch by reading the fol- lowing tips and tricks for pulling off an unforgettable beach wedding.

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
There are many aspects of a beach wedding that hiring a profes- sional wedding planner can take the headache of, including things you may not consider, like needing a permit for use of a specific area or a special license for a bonfire.

And wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone other than a family member who could deal with pass- ersby or people that want to make the area just beyond your altar their camp for the day?

PICK YOUR TIMING WISELY
Sunset vows may seem like the ultimate fairytale, but think about the sun beating down on you (or blinding you) and it may seem more like a nightmare.

You don’t want to be squinting in every photo. Also consider the youngest and oldest in your party — someone suffering from a heat-related incident is not the way to start off the festivities.

DRESS FOR THE VENUE
Yes, you are the bride. And yes, technically you can wear whatever you want, and definitely wear what makes you most happy.

But consider what it will actually mean to wear a ball gown on the beach before you commit to one. Ball gowns require a lot of extra fabric to achieve their fullness, which makes them hot and heavy.

Consider dresses with lighter fabrics that will move well in the breeze.

For the groom and his men, ditch the blazers and dinner jackets for looser shirts — you can always wear suspenders and retain a dose of formality if that is important to you.
