How do I do a beach wedding?
The beauty of a beach wedding is how informal and adaptable they can be! There is no wrong way to do a beach wedding but there are some things worth considering when planning ahead. When planning a beach wedding, consider the accessibility of the location to guests, hotel and travel costs, hurricane/rainy season, and local wedding regulations. When getting married on a beach out of the country, some countries have strict guidelines for legal ceremonies for non residents. If you choose to get married on a foreign beach, many resorts offer pre-set wedding packages and wedding planners to make prepping and planning a beach wedding as easy as possible.
What makes a good beach wedding dress?
Depending on the location and the weather, the ideal wedding dress will vary but there are some general things you'll want to look for in a dress when planning a beach wedding. Breathable and comfortable fabrics is a must for weddings during the summer where the humidity and temperatures are high. Lightweight silk or chiffon bridal gowns with lace will help keep you cool while adding flare to your dress. Also consider where you are walking down the aisle, and what you are walking on. If walking on the sand, gowns with large trains may drag in the sand; however, if you are walking down a runner, a gown with a large train might make that extra statement you are looking for.
