If you are looking for an ideal, picturesque and dreamy location for your wedding, you should consider the beach. The beautiful backdrop of sand and heavenly blue water will make your day feel like a fantasy. As simple as it may sound, romantic beach weddings still require preparation and good organizational skills. That being said, let’s go through some of the tips and ideas on how to plan a beach wedding.
Choose Your Beach
The venue possibilities are surely narrowed down, but you still have options. The choices vary, from a classic beach scene with soft sand and rays of sunshine to a more dramatic alternative, which has kind of a wild notion and as a backdrop offers more rugged coastlines.
Make Your Guests Comfortable
You need to be prepared in advance if some of your guests show up very dressed up and with stilettos and delicate dress shoes. These do not go hand in hand with the sand, so think about offering them an alternative. One brilliant idea is bulk flip flops which can offer comfort and convenience to your guests. All you need to do is to simply get a basket and fill it with bulk flip flops and make sure there’s more than enough (you and your partner might also need a pair). Arrange them by colour and size, so that the basket looks neat and the process of choosing the right pair is made simple for each guest.
In general, beach weddings are a more casual option than indoor ones, so, your choice of garments (and everyone else’s) – should reflect that. Opt for a no-fuss, comfortable dress and enjoy yourself. As for accessories, don’t go over the top. Of course, you can, and you should look glam for your wedding day, but go for dress, accessories, and shoes that can stand up to the sand, water, and wind. The same applies for the groom too. Heavy tuxedos can be replaced with lighter suits with a more casual feel.
Since most of the decorations are provided by nature, you do not need to go overboard with this part. Still, a few details can add to the ambience and add a personalized feel to your special event. For a focal point, you can use an arbour which can either be made of fabric or flowers. If you are into DIYs, you can customize it yourself and even add some personal touch to it. If you choose a later time of day for your ceremony, and you want to use sunset as an additional effect, you can emphasize it even more by lightning the pathway with candles which can be covered by lanterns or jars to keep them from blowing out.
