"Tips for the Perfect Florida Beach Wedding"
Weddings can be a memorable experience, not only for the happy couple, but also for the guests. A beach wedding offers a sensible yet elegant solution to the traditional wedding ceremony. In fact, it’s almost like a mini-vacation. However, pulling off a flawless event at the shore isn’t without its unique challenges. The following are a few simple tips to keep in mind to ensure your wedding day is as perfect as you always imagined it would be.
Beach Wedding A beach wedding requires a little extra planning but can be an elegant and memorable alternative to a traditional ceremony.
- Get professional assistance. The services of a wedding planner can be invaluable when it comes to your beach wedding. They can make your life easier by shouldering the burden of researching, auditioning, and securing local vendors. They can create gift bags for guests, greet everyone at the airport, keep people busy with fun activities, and get everyone where they need to be on time.
- Prep your guests. Make sure your guests know that the wedding is actually on the sand, so they can dress appropriately. Some couples are providing a “shoe valet” where guests can trade out their Ferragamo pumps for casual flip-flops—which you can have personalized with the couple’s name and wedding date.
- Dress accordingly. A beach wedding is not the ideal venue for a formal ballgown or chapel train. Not all dresses, fabrics, and veil styles work for a beach setting. However, an airy sheath is most definitely sand-friendly, but if you want to wear a gown with a fuller skirt, be sure you choose a dress constructed of a lighter fabric that allows for more movement.
- Mind Mother Nature. Windy afternoons and evenings can be chilly, sandy, or completely drown out the sound for the ceremony. Be sure to have a back up plan. And don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen or you’ll risk some serious burn.
A beautifully romantic beach wedding in the wonderful Florida sunshine is the perfect setting for a memorable event you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. By taking the above tips into consideration, you will be able to have that fairy tale wedding on the beach that you’ve always wanted.
