Tips To Plan A Beach Wedding Part 1

There’s probably nothing more romantic than saying ‘I Do’ with your partner at the beach. After all, the sunset, the light breeze blowing, the taste of the sea on your lips and the presence of loved ones does make for a picture perfect beach wedding. However, just like any other wedding, having the perfect beach wedding does take plenty of planning in advance, so here’s a few things to keep in mind beforehand…


Inform Your Guests: Your guests are just as excited as you are and undoubtedly want to look their best on your wedding day. Keeping the actual venue and theme a surprise may sound like a good idea but it will backfire because your guests will not be able to pack appropriately for the occasion. Simply put – stilettos would be disastrous on a sandy surface and the last thing you would want is for guests to be worried about their attire when they should be enjoying themselves. Having a beach wedding theme on your invitation cards is a great way to let your guests know that you plan to wed at the beach.


Dress Right: Keep in mind that the weather can be a tad unpredictable at your beach wedding and that’s why it makes sense to dress comfortably for the occasion. If you plan to wear a gown, go with a dress that does not have a train. If you plan to go with Indian wedding wear, try keeping the embellishments to a minimum so that you’re able to move about easily. Choosing the right footwear is also important because unhappy feet can be a real mood dampener and that’s why it makes sense to go with peep toes, wedges or flat sandals.


Opt for a Chic, Fuss Free Look: It is a beach wedding after all and there’s bound to be plenty of sun and a breeze involved so don’t forget to use sunscreen before applying your makeup. A nude, blush or bronzed look works well and suits a variety of skin tones without making a bride look overdressed. If you have long or medium length hair, take your pick from a number of great looking beach wedding bridal hairstyles like a curly updo, a braided side bun, a low fan bun or a braided French top knot. By opting for any one of these hairstyles, your hair will stay in place the whole time and you don’t have to stress about unruly hair in any of the photographs either.
