Five Ways to Have a Seaside Beach Wedding
Fantasizing about the sunset, the fresh sea air, and your darling? Make your beach wedding dreams a reality with these top ten ways to have a seaside ceremony to remember.
The Local Beach Council Laws
Before you rent those tiki torches, check out local ordinances regarding your beach wedding. Find out if there are guest maximums, if food and alcohol are allowed, if there are restrooms nearby, if you can light a bonfire, if you can pitch a tent, the tide schedule, and other mandatory information.
Have a Bad Weather Backup Plan
Good luck or no, if it rains the day of your sandy nuptials, your dream day will be a bust. Make sure you have a sturdy alternate plan in case of rain. Secure a location away from the waves and have a tent prepared, just in case. Include alternative plans and directions in your invitation.
Prepare Your Beach Wedding Guests
Send a save-the-date announcement up to six months in advance so your family and friends have a chance to prepare for the special location. In addition, when you send your invitations, remind guests to bring extra clothes in case it gets chilly.
Sure, you want to line your "aisle" with luminaries and put up that trellis laden with flowers - but will your decorations go flying into the wind 2 minutes into the ceremony? Be sure and test all your ceremony special touches before the Big Day so you know what to expect in terms of wind, sea spray, and sand.
Use the Ocean as Inspiration
When choosing the layout of your ceremony, remember you have chosen a location with a million years of spiritual pretext. Incorporate the spiritual influence of the ocean into your ceremony with beach-inspired readings, poems, and vows that reflect the power of your surroundings as well as the power of your love for one another.
