    Tips for a Beach Wedding

    Do Check Tide Levels

    Using the ocean as a backdrop to your wedding can be a magical idea. But you have to be sure of the weather conditions, and plan your wedding accordingly. In the mid-summer, tides are generally high. So coordinate the time of your wedding the the tide in mind.


    Don’t Wear High Heels

    Consider flats in the sand. There are so many beautiful flats and sandals available that will not only make walking comfortable, but also complement your bridal gown. You should make your comfort a priority so that you can enjoy your day to the fullest.


    Do Bring Speakers

    Beaches are open spaces and are generally noisy. Even if you book a private beach for the event, the constant sound of the waves crashing will make your emotional vows inaudible to your guests. Brings speakers and set a sound system so that your guests can hear the vows you have worked so hard to write.


    Don’t Rely On Weather

    The most constant thing in life is uncertainty. While you are not in control of the weather, you can plan the arrangements thoughtfully. Always have a Plan B when you have an outdoor wedding on the cards.


    Do Ensure Privacy

    Most beaches are not private, and hence, insanely crowded during the vacation period. Choose a time when the beach is relatively less crowded.


    Don’t Offer Heavy Food

    Offer light refreshments to your guests. The beach is not a venue where you can go overboard with the food. Keep a container full of mint lemonade or ice water for your guests to enjoy while they wait for the ceremony to begin.


    Pick a Good Time

    If there is one thing that you need to get right is wedding photos. When it comes to beach wedding photos, lighting and time of day are very important. Close your ceremony 45 minutes to an hour before the sunset. This way you will be able to take jaw-dropping photos.
