Nothing can be more romantic than planning a beach wedding – the cool breeze of the sea, soft sand under the feet and the sun setting at a distance, the perfect setting to say ‘I Do’. A beach wedding can be a great experience for the couple as well as their guests. But in order to make sure everything goes as planned, there are a lot of things to be considered:
Choose the Right Time
Choosing the right time is paramount for the success of the big event. A daytime wedding is a perfect no-no for summers; you surely don’t want to be scorched under the sun, neither would you want your guests to get glistened. If you are planning your wedding during the summer season it is best to plan an evening event. The sea has its own beauty to show at the evening, so you can create the perfect romantic ambience.
On the other hand of you are planning to get married during the winter season, a daytime wedding would be the best. Feel the warmth of the sun and experience the beauty of the sea at daytime, while tying the knot with your beloved.
Skip that Flowing Gown
Dressing appropriately is another important thing if you are planning a beach wedding. A long flowing dress can be hard to carry and the laces can collect sand and dirt. So choose a wedding gown carefully. Moreover, it is never recommended to wear heels on the beach. Wear flat sandals with embellishments that match your gown. Get your hairs tied high; remember there would be strong breeze, so if you let your hairs loose, you can have a hard time managing them.
If you really want to feel the sea, let the guys wear informal attire. Lightweight cotton clothes would be the best for the groom and the guys attending your wedding.
Find a Great Photographer
A beach wedding can be one of the most picturesque events, if you find the right wedding photographer. But make sure you hire an experienced photographer, since proper lighting techniques are a must to capture the best shots on the beach. Moreover, an experienced photographer would know how to capture the elements of the beach – the crashing waves, sunset, etc. to make the photos come alive.
Private or Public
One downside of beach wedding is that there would be many eyes prying on you. But you can cut down on that by choosing a private beach wedding. Many beachside resorts have private beaches, where only the guests are allowed; so you can have a private event without any outsiders. However, this might cost you some extra bucks.
Beach weddings are one-of-a-kind if you can plan it well. Oftentimes, hiring a wedding planner can sort out the difficulties since they have the required experience to keep things under control. But if you are hiring one, make sure he/she has experience in organising beach weddings. So go ahead and plan the best wedding ever.
