Simple Tips on Planning Your Beach Wedding

Friday, November 13th, 2015

There is nothing more romantic than getting married in a sandy beach with the sound of the waves in your background, the smell of the air and the gentle breeze blowing through your hair as you exchange your first kiss as husband and wife. And since the elements are already there, all you will need to do is to just be present on your big day. But of course, you will still need to plan your great beach wedding to make it even more romantic.

Before you choose the perfect place, better check the weather climate for that particular date. Although it would be difficult to predict the type of weather you will be having, but at least the weather bureau has some early predictions about the climate and temperature that are mostly reliable. We are not actually forecasters, but at least settle with a date that is just a typical ordinary summer day to make it safe.

Check the beach if it is a public or a private beach since this will cause to extra problems when the place is overcrowded. Ask a county or the city clerk if you will need any permits for the premise because you may expect some limitations on each of them. Apply for such permits several months before the wedding just to be certain that everything is in order.

You will also have to plan the materials that you are going to use for the event like sitting chairs, special flooring to hold the chairs, tents, and so on. Although some beach weddings do not use special flooring for the chairs, but this can cause discomfort for the guests especially when the chairs start to sink in the sand. You can also rent some canopies just to avoid outdoor mishaps such as some wind hazards that could interfere with the wedding. Also prepare umbrellas for the guests and plenty of bottled water to show that you care for your guests.

And since you are going to have an outdoor wedding, make sure that you have a backup plan. Your main concern when having a beach wedding is if the weather would cooperate with you or if it would play tricks on you. Rain and winds can cause mayhem and may even ruin the entire wedding. It would be better if you can find a nearby building that can be rented, church or a hotel especially when the weather goes wrong. If you can carefully plan this, you will be glowing with happiness as you wear your beautiful bridal jewelry on your beach wedding.

Whether you live near a beach or in the UK where beach ceremonies aren’t yet legal a beach ceremony could be the answer to your dreams. Depending on your budget your choices could be a beach on an exotic island, your local beach if your country allows outdoor weddings or a quiet cove on the coast a Mediterranean country.

Before you decide to throw yourself head first into planning a beach wedding make sure this is the right choice for you and your partner. Depending on the size of your beach wedding, whether you pay for guests to join you on that exotic island or whether it’s a small group of family. If a number of friends and family are planning on joining you on the day, try to make things easy for them as possible such as suggesting flights, accommodation and transport. To forewarn people about the date of your wedding you could send out beach themed save the date cards a year before your wedding so people can make the necessary arrangements to be off work and possibly use your beach wedding as a basis for their family holiday. Wedding invitations are sent about 6 weeks before the big day.

There are a couple of issues you may need to think about when planning your beach wedding and these are the wind and the tide. Ask a local wedding planner as they will be able to give you an idea of the best time to get married is and where. if the beach is known to be windy, try to find a cove that will shelter you. Just because you’re planning on getting married on a lovely sunny beach somewhere doesn’t mean that it won’t rain, so be prepared just in case. You can rent a canopy and decorate it for the evening, for when the sun goes down and the temperature’s a little cooler. That way if it rains there’s somewhere else where the ceremony can take place. Depending on which country you get married in will depend on the legalities of the ceremony, again check with a local wedding planner who will be able to answer questions you have regarding this.
