How to Plan a Beach Wedding


Wondering how to make your big wedding day uniquely memorable? Picture this. You and your loved one, saying your vows in front of all the people who mean a lot against the backdrop of a glorious sunset by the beach. The wedding day is a special and unforgettable day in every married person’s life and thus everything that can be done must be done, to ensure that it ends up being a perfect day that carves out a niche in your life. A lot goes into trying to make the place of the ceremony look grand and memorable but having a beach wedding lets nature do half the work!

Factors to Keep Note of:

A beach wedding always exudes a casual and relaxed vibe but a lot of details must be kept in mind and looked into to make sure the day goes off smoothly.

• The Reception:
If you’ve zeroed in on having a beach wedding, make sure that the beach remains the predominant theme for even the reception. Seashells and beach pebbles complimenting white linen table cloths conjures up the image of a pristine yet relaxed beach themed reception ceremony. Invitations must also reflect the beach inspiration

• Season and Weather Constraint Factors:
The details to an outdoor ceremony like a beach wedding must be planned keeping factors like the weather and the season in mind. Beach weddings in summer must have generous provisions of bottled water and sunscreen lotions for the comfort of the guests. Beat the scorching heat of the sun by having the ceremony early in the morning. An evening wedding under an orange sunset sky, with the sea wind blowing through every ones hair followed by a dinner reception, could also be a beautiful alternative in trying to avoid the afternoon heat.

• Wedding Photography:
Freeze special moments by capturing your special day through a lens. Having the beach as a backdrop would make the pictures ethereally beautiful. One must discuss all details with the photographer before the ceremony. These details include issues like where the pictures will be taken and the effect of the shadow at that time of the day.

• Legal Formalities:
One must always look into the legal formalities like whether the beach you’ve zeroed in on for the ceremony is a public or a private beach. One must also look into whether your chosen beach can be used for functions and ceremonies or not. Legal loopholes must not pop up on the day of the ceremony, which is why you must need to find out if a special permit is needed to use the beach you want for your wedding or not. If it is needed, make sure you know details of where you can get the permit and how much you will have to pay for it, well before the D-day.

• Other miscellaneous factors:

• Seating arrangements must be carefully planned and organized.

• Having a marquee would be advantageous if it happened to rain or for it to provide shade from the sun.

•Apart from the main menu small refreshments like champagne and finger food must be arranged for.

• Making sure there are restrooms at the location of the ceremony or in a building close to it is a very important detail that should most definitely not be missed.

So, now you too can have your dream wedding by the beach. Say `I DO’ amidst the sea, sand and the sun and see your special day become a page straight out of a fairytale.
