Summer Brides

What comes in your mind when you are thinking of beach wedding? Chances may be that the mellow breeze, the chirp of the birds, and the soft sand lingers on your mind. However, does the nosy onlookers, the strong wind giving you a bad hair day, and some insects entered your imaginative mind? We do not want to ruin your romantic idea about beach weddings, but they are possibilities that practically occurs in the scene. Marrying beach-front is a challenge in your planning, but you can definitely pull it off, take into account thousands of couples who exchanged their vows in front of the wide blue ocean.

Summer is a month near and some soon to be brides may want to plan their big day at the beach. Double-purpose isn't it? A day to celebrate the most important occasion in your life as couple, and to enjoy summer with family, relatives, and dear friends. The beach is a very romantic venue to wed, and whether you wanted to welcome sunrise or sunset as couple, it is all up to what you better prefer. Having a wedding planner may save you from experiencing the worst, but knowing how to take into account some matters yourself will bring great benefits for your own peace of mind.

The Lovely Bride

Dress Right

  • As much as possible wear a gown made of light fabrics that just flows with the air. Wearing a lace dress and big ball gowns may just leave you frustrated with it picking up the sand and the debris in the beach.
  • Sand and heels simply does not match. Wear flat sandals, wedges, or shoes that does not sink into the sand.
  • Ask your stylist to fashion your hair in a way that will hold despite the wind. If you are to wear your hair down, you might need the services of your stylist to help you with retouches all through-out the day.
  • Do not wear a too-long veil. In a windy atmosphere, this can be a disaster for you and your photographer.
  • The guys can go less formal with beach shorts or lightweight cotton shirts and pants. Ditch the tux and wool especially if your wedding venue will be in a  tropical climate.

  • Choose colors that can add to the vibrancy of the beach in summer. This lets you to have a set-up that makes a statement than completely blending in. Turquoise, bright green, fuchsia, peach and yellow can be a popping color combo.
  • Not all beaches are private. Settle paperworks with the local government as necessary. Follow rules especially regarding the environment and noise ordinances.

Reception Considerations

  • Make sure that your guests know that the affair will take place in the sand. You can include reminders about attire suggestions in your wedding invitation.
  • Prepare for refreshments appropriate for beach as reception. Also, shade your guests and keep them comfortable in benches or chairs while waiting for the ceremony to start.
  • Make sure to have a back-up plan. Sometimes weather can be unpredictable, so when it does not allow you to have the entire event at the beach, make sure there will be tents or covered spaces for the celebration to push through.
  • Keep the bugs at bay with insect repellent prepared for the guests.
