It is true that the ambiance on the seaside creates the right atmosphere for you and your better half when exchanging vows, but there is more that you can do get the best of what the day can offer. The one major plus about having a beach wedding is that you get to go out of the usual wedding setting and add fun and creativity in a variety of ways. This explains why your beach wedding ceremony should be top notch.
Knowing what to do, and not to do, when planning a beach wedding can go a long way in making the ceremony how you what it to be. With the help of expert beach wedding planners, here are the handy tips that you can use to plan your beach wedding ceremony.
Get a permit
Before holding your ceremony on the beach, you want to be sure that you are not breaking any laws or regulations. As such, spend time researching all the necessary restriction regarding the use of beaches including noise ordinances. This is especially important since many people choose to have beach weddings in foreign countries which may require permission before such events. You will be on the safe side if you have all the paperwork necessary beforehand.
Keep it natural
The fact that the wedding is held out in the open with all the beauty of nature is one advantage into which you want to tap before overthinking. While at it, you want to make sure that you do it the right way so that you don’t overdo it and spoil everything. When it comes to adding style to your venue, look no further than nature – water, rocks, sand, vegetation – for inspiration. As such, avoid dressing the venue too much and keep it natural.
Pick the right colors
When it comes to choosing the correct color patterns for your beach wedding ceremony set up, we refer back to the first point. The colors that nature offer include those of the water, sand and the vegetation around. So, when picking out your color patterns, be sure to bear those of the sand and the water in mind. This also includes the color of the wedding attire for the groom, groomsmen, and the bridesmaids. They should all synch and come out beautifully. Examples of ideal colors include green, corals, among other vibrant colors. Black is a no-no.
Ensure some privacy
The use of canopies and even chairs are not permitted on many public beaches so ensuring security can be a little tricky. Also, they get very crowded especially during the holidays and on the weekends. For these reasons, you want to ensure the venue of your wedding on the beach offers privacy unless you are okay with the attendance of the public – which I highly doubt. You can also choose to book a venue at an oceanfront estate or hotel.
Prepare the guests
When sending out invitations to your guests, be sure to mention that the beach wedding ceremony will take place on a beach and prepare them for the sun. Also, don’t forget to mention the preferred dressing code if there is any. You can get beach wedding attire ideas in our store for men, women and children.
