How to organize a wedding on the beach
Date and time
Just like any other wedding, the first step is to schedule the date and time of the event. But when it comes to a beach wedding, this task requires a little more care and attention.
Beach wedding is an outdoor ceremony and therefore needs to happen under a mild temperature. You will not want your guests suffering in a gale or scorching heat, will not you? So the recommendation is to choose to wed the beach wedding in the spring months, especially September and October, when temperatures are more pleasant and the odds of rainfall are lower.
Even so, it is important to ensure a covered area in case of an unexpected rainfall. Another tip is not to mark the wedding between 12h and 14h, as this is the hottest time of day.
Take advantage of getting away from peak periods and holidays. This prevents your guests from going through the disorder of crowded roads, queues and hostels without vacancies.
It is also worth knowing how the tide and the winds behave on the beach chosen throughout the year. On some beaches, the tide may rise to the point of rendering the ceremony unfeasible.
Obviously the place is the beach, but which beach? Will the ceremony be on a public beach or hotel / inn facing the sea? Do you need permission to get married on the beach? If you choose to have a wedding in a public area, it is necessary to seek a permit or a permit from the local city hall. And do it well in advance, well in advance. And remember: public beach, unlimited access. So be prepared for the curious looks of strangers.
Already hotels and inns guarantee greater privacy, do not require bureaucracy, but can cost more. The good side is that they offer all the necessary structure for the ceremony. Do some good research before you make the decision.
Know the city where the wedding will be held. Make sure the ceremony beach is near the center if access is easy and if it has all the necessary infrastructure to accommodate your guests in comfort.
Try to close special packages with inns and hotels to ensure a special price for lodging for the guests.
To attend a wedding in another city you need organization and planning. So try to distribute the invitations well in advance, about 60 days in advance. So the guests have enough time to organize themselves.
What to serve
Wedding on the beach combines with drinks and light foods. Bet on fruits, canapés, assorted salads and beverages such as coconut water, natural juice and fruit-based cocktails. A prosecco and a very cold beer also match the occasion.
Groom and Bride Clothing
The bride and groom need to dress appropriately for the environment. So no bulky clothes and full of sparkle for the wedding on the beach. Bet on fluid, light-colored fabrics and flat shoes. Being barefoot is also a great way out. .
The bride's dress can have delicate lace and to adorn the head, a tiara of flowers. No long veils, the wind from the beach can lift it and throw sand on the guests.
The groom can dispense with the traditional suit and tie and wear a white shirt and light colored pants instead.
Costume for the guests
If the bride and groom are at ease, the guests then do not even talk. Instead of social clothing, ask the guests to wear a chic sport.
The decoration, just like the costume of the party, should be simple and elegant. Light colors are preferred. Bet on lightweight fabrics to decorate and flowers that withstand wind and warmer temperatures such as roses and heliconia.
