We don’t blame you. If we could choose a fantastic place to walk down the aisle, it would be the beach. Wrapped in indescribable views, with the company of the sea and in a atmosphere marked by the softness of the sandeverything seems to take an enchanting shape, with beautiful details and an incomparable atmosphere, however, the choice of these destinations can lead us to make very common mistakes that we do not usually recognize instantly.
If you are already convinced of having a beautiful ceremony in a paradisiacal destination, take note of these things that cannot go unnoticed.
Choose a public beach
Not all destinations have the same beach format, and brides often choose the most popular spaces to say “I do”. Before making the final decision, we recommend you opt for a private place where you, your fiancé and the closest guests can enjoy a very special ceremony and without the need to share your photos with people in swimsuits… Seriously! !
Ideally, you hire a wedding planner specialized in destination weddings to help you make visits to the beaches that most attract your attention; He or she will surely know the perfect space for your wedding to be perfect from start to finish!
Not taking the weather into account
It is very nice to get married on the beach, but have you thought about the rainy season and hurricanes? Before choosing the final date, it is best that you know what the weather conditions of the destination for which you have decided will be.
You can also ask at the hotel, hall or space of the celebration what is the best time to enjoy the beach, the warm weather and the sun, without the constant worry that a storm is going to fall on your big day. Make sure you choose the exact date so that you and your guests have a great time.
Take the beach theme to the extreme
Oh yeah! Although it is a place where dreams can come true, brides often exploit the marine style with hundreds of decorative details inspired by the region: starfish, anchors, weight nets, life preservers, fish motifs, among others.
Aesthetics can be based on sea features, but remember that “everything in excess is bad”. If possible, add a few nautical details to your wedding invitation design or guest favors, but don’t clutter your ceremony or banquet with an extravagant dose of literal embellishment either. Take it into account!
Choosing the worst wedding dress for the weather
If you are already sure of getting married on the beach, for nothing in the world would you think of opting for a princess cut dress with two hundred layers of tulle. In addition to the fact that it will be very difficult to deal with its weight, it is most likely that you will end up dying of heat due to the amount of fabric you have on you.
It is best to decide on a subtle drop design and very light, with organic textures and ethereal style. The same goes for your boyfriend: choosing a linen suit, in light colors and with a good long-sleeved guayabera will be ideal!
Relying too much on the beach
Even if you have taken into account the weather conditions and the climate for the season, imagine that an impressive rain falls! Precisely for this reason, you or your wedding planner must have a stage that saves the night, either in a room within the same hotel or in a space covered with a tent. For nothing in the world do you overlook this if you do not want your day to become a real nightmare.
Choosing high heels
Before you get stuck in the sand at every step, you better bet on comfortable flat or high-heeled sandals. If you choose them with rhinestone details, the effect glam it will be instantly noticeable. Don’t let the height of your shoes make you feel uncomfortable all night and better enjoy the softness of the sand with a flatter model.
