Your Beach Wedding Ceremony

There are details you do not want to forget.....

A Beach wedding ceremony without a flaw, is not a fantasy. With proper planning, you can have a perfect wedding by the water.

Planning a wedding on the beach can entail details you would never consider at a conventional wedding ceremony site. There is a lot more to take into consideration.

A beach-side wedding ceremony, a waterside ceremony or a poolside ceremony, whichever you choose, here is my list of important considerations:

• BACK-UP - Please do not plan the most memorable day of your life without considering PLAN B! Believe me when I tell you that this is one concern you do not want to have on the day of your beach wedding.

 

• CEREMONY LOCATION - Take a close look at your guest list and consider how far people will have to walk to your beach ceremony. Have you considered how your guests will find your ceremony?

Getting your guests to and from your ceremony on the beach• RESTROOM FACILITIES and ELECTRICAL POWER NEEDS - What if someone has to use the restroom while waiting for the ceremony to begin? What do you mean you need to plug into an electrical outlet for your amplifier for my beach wedding music? These are questions you will need to be able to answer

•DIRECTIONS - I have seen many a bride forget to include clear directions and parking instruction to the wedding ceremony when it is on the beach. This is very important especially if you are planning a beach wedding that is at a public beach location and not at a resort. A good place to do this can be on your website, if you have one, or in your beach wedding invitation

•MUSIC on the beach - Remember the elements! Music for a outside ceremony near the water or on a beach can be a challenge- here are some ideas Rent a portable amplifier, Mic & record your music., Hire a professional singer who has there own equipment or the best advice i can give is hire wedding planner!

Choosing music for your waterside wedding is your choice Recorded or a live wedding singer, be sure they supply the equipment.

• CHOICES FOR YOUR OFFICIANT - The choice is important for seaside or waterside wedding ceremony. Some choices are better than others.

Choosing an officiant for your waterside wedding is very important.

What do they Include in there fee? How many ceremonys have they officiated?

Will they be at your rehearsal? what is the fee for that? Will they do a tradistional ceremony or will they write a unique & personal ceremony just for you!

A Non denominational officiant will be able to perform most type of ceremonys reguardless of faith etc.

•MAKING IT LEGAL Remember to get your wedding license!

Give it to the offciant befor the ceremony if possiable.

• BEACH WEDDING FLOWERS - What works best for a beach wedding ceremony? I have seen all kinds, and there are definitely some better decisions to be made that can save you money

Flowers with staying power for the beach If you choos to have live flowers be sure to keep them in a cooler, The warm weather will wilt them faster then you think. My advice to prevent a flower disaster...........Silk flowers, the are very popular for beach wedding and never a fear of them wilting in the heat. And you will have them forever as your very own keepsake.

Ask me about your flowers

•TIMING OF YOUR SEASIDE WEDDING CEREMONY - The time of year and the time of day that you say your vows in this location, will make all the difference in the world.

Find the time of sunset at your beach wedding location

•DEALING WITH THE NATURAL ELEMENTS AT A BEACH WEDDING - Mother nature does her own thing. Be prepared, there is always a breeze near the water. Certain times of the year it is more prevalent depending on the location of your waterside wedding. But it is better to assume there will be some wind. Check out the long range forecast at the Farmers Almanac

•WIND

• - Consider your ceremony flowers and set up, a trellis, Chuppa or urns of flowers will need to be anchored down securely. Another important consideration at a beach wedding ceremony is your veil. Depending on where the wind is coming from, it could be blowing in your face all through the ceremony. there is nothing worse than to see a bride tangling with her veil all through the ceremony and the photographer trying desperately to catch a picture of her face.

Think about your hair! Programs to be put on the chairs for your beach wedding ceremony - remember,the sand could be blowing. If possible depending on where your ceremony is, check out the same time of year and day where the ceremony will be. If it is a destination beach wedding, talk to a wedding coordinator in the area or perhaps a florist who has set up a ceremony in the same area. Ask them what to expect. Play it safe and plan ahead! One important thing to find out about if you are getting married in Florida, is if it is a El Nino year or not!

Noaa Weather Center - a good place to research weather

•WEDDING REHEARSAL .

Do a Wedding Rehearsal PLEASE -I cannot stress enough the importance of doing a run-through for your beach wedding ceremony. No matter how many weddings your attendants have been in, no two weddings are alike and you want to make sure everyone knows what they are suppose to do on "your" big day
