A traditional church ceremony is beautiful; there is something quite magical about getting married in the white sandy beach in Mexico. There’s just something so beautiful about tying the knot in an exotic location or at a Perfect Beach Wedding. What bride-to-be wouldn’t want to stroll down the sandy aisle barefoot to her future husband, while the breeze is in her hair and the sun is beaming on her face?
But, just like any other type of wedding, a destination wedding does not come without its stresses (what wedding does?) In fact, there is a lot of planning involved in making the destination wedding run smoothly.
But do not worry, we are bringing you some of the most helpful tips that should help you prepare for your big day and ensure it is the dream wedding you’ve always wished for.
THINK TWICE ABOUT A VEIL
A breeze is definitively going to be present on the beach, and it is going to make wearing a long veil tricky. Wearing a long and elegant veil will make you uncomfortable, and it will also be a nightmare for the photographer. He is trying to take pretty pictures of you, and the veil keeps getting in the way. So, maybe go for some kind of hair jewelry that won’t get into the way of pictures and won’t make you uncomfortable.
FORGET THE BALLGOWN
Not all dresses work for a beach wedding, and a ballgown definitely belongs in a ballroom and not in the sand. You have to think about what will be easy to move in, and what will be comfortable to be in. Anything big and fussy is going to be hard to deal with on a beach.
SAY “I DO” IN THE DAYTIME
Even though the party can go on until way after the sun sets, you’ll want your ceremony taking place in the daytime. You should have the ceremony first, so all the images are taken during the sunset and your guests are not left hearing your vows in the dark.
SERVE LOCAL CUISINE
One of the many benefits of having a beach wedding is being extremely close to a great source of local cuisine (yes, we mean fish). Fresh and local seafood is a great option to offer your guests when picking food options for the reception’s lunch or dinner.
ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN B FOR THE WEATHER
The best way to ensure that your visuals will be beautiful, rain or shine, is to choose a location that has an alternate space reserved for you that will still provide the beachfront aesthetic that you are dreaming of.
