The fantasy of many a bride is a dreamy beach wedding! Perhaps for a local bride who has grown up in a seaside community, or possibly a destination wedding for someone who has only visited the beach once or twice and fell in love with the waves and sand.
If you and your fiancé are thinking about exchanging your vows on the beach, you definitely want to consider the following helpful advice.
*Make a list of potential sites.
*Visit each one in person.
*Consider locations that aren’t directly on the beach such as restaurants & hotels that have decks or gazebos that overlook the beach.
*If you want your ceremony directly on the beach with sand between your toes, check to see if you need a permit for the particular beach you’re thinking of.
*Do you have a plan B if it rains?
*Do you have condos or hotel rooms for you and the bridal party to get ready nearby, or for out of town guests?
*Consider the time of year and time of day carefully. Check the local average temperatures and plan accordingly!
*Time your ceremony so that you can have ample time to get good photos – most brides are thinking of a wedding at sunset on the beach, but running out of sunlight is a bad thing for your wedding photos!
*Will your reception be outdoors, indoors or both?
