Many couples dream about having their wedding on the beach. There’s something romantic about the beach that makes it an ideal place, not to mention that the view is always amazing. The beach can make you feel relaxed while giving you that exhilarating feeling as you step into an important event in your life.

When you have decided to have a beach wedding, here are some things to consider to make it a perfect wedding venue:


1. Work with a wedding planner

You may be tempted to plan your wedding alone because after all, it is your wedding and you want to be on top of everything to ensure that everything runs smoothly. However, doing it alone has several drawbacks that you will only end up with many headaches. For this reason, you should work with a wedding planner instead because doing a beach wedding is not as easy as it may sound.

You can’t just go to a public beach, put up some chairs and decors on the sand, and get married at that moment. You may need to secure a permit to use the place, as well as arrange for everything, from food catering to sound systems to photographers and guest accommodations. A wedding planner can handle those things for you more effectively and efficiently given their experiences.


2. Consider natural elements

Pick a date that will be best suitable for a beach wedding, a time of the year when the weather is not too hot, or there is little chance of rain. Nonetheless, have a backup plan in case the weather forecast for your big day becomes stormy.


3. Go for a casual event

A beach wedding can still be elegant and chic without the elaborate gowns and heels and tuxedos. It is best to keep it casual so that you and your wedding party will be more comfortable to move around. Use softer fabrics for the ladies’ gowns and light-colored suits for the gentlemen to make them more comfortable.


4. Prepare the sound system

Even with an intimate wedding congregation, you still need a sound system for a beach wedding. It can get windy, which can make it hard for your guests to hear what’s going on during the ceremony. Also, you might want to have music to energize the ambiance. Don’t forget to hire a sound system crew who can provide portable speakers and microphones. This usually comes as part of the wedding venue package, but it does not harm to double-check with your organizer.


5. Prepare for the cost

You may assume that a beach wedding can cost more compared to the common indoor wedding venues. That may be true, but you can also get a cheaper rate compared to many indoor wedding venues. Many beach hotels can offer you discounts for group rates, and during the off-season, the rates are relatively lower than normal. Don’t get discouraged with the cost, and go for a beach wedding if that is what you desire.
