However, planning for all kinds of wedding goes with its challenges.
There are things that has to done to have a fabulous beach wedding.
Some tips are here to guide you on having a romantic and fabulous wedding on the sand.
1. Have a Day Time Ceremony
Having your wedding ceremony at daylight is a great way of viewing the beautiful setting of the ocean.
However, you should choose design and flowers that can hold up the heat because you wouldn’t want your design and flowers damaging because of the hot sun.
You also need to protect your skin to prevent a sunburn on your wedding day.
2. No to Heels!
Do not wear heels because this would sink into the sand. Wear flat sole sandals and wedges that are easy and comfortable to walk on the sand.
3. Let Your Guests Know
Your wedding guests should have a knowledge that your wedding ceremony will take place on the sand.
This will get them prepared for the effects of the atmosphere on your wedding day. They should have planned for coming with sunscreen, towels and bottled water to prevent the effect of the heat.
4. Have a Backup Plan
You never can predict the weather and you have no right or power to prevent unforeseen weather conditions.
Be prepared for a plan ‘B’ by creating an indoor in case of a weather change and having a canopy at standby.
5. Prepare a Wind Plan
We all know that a rainfall might cause a disaster on our wedding ceremony but the wind is worse in terms of a beach wedding.
That’s why you need a backup plan because you never can know how the wedding will look like.
6. Choose The Right Dress!
Choose the dress and fabric that suits a beach wedding. Wear a dress with a lighter fabric.
7. Have a Sound System
The beach wedding is filled with the sounds of wind and waves, as well as some background noise. A microphone should be used at the wedding ceremony so the wedding guests can hear you properly when you make the wedding vows.
