Planning a Wedding on the Beach?

I know, I know… the details to planning weddings are always a lot less fun than actually decorating for your big day, but these are some things you'll need to know in advance, and are sure to be helpful.

Choose your venue wisely- Many a bride has dreamed of an elegant beach wedding only to find that the picturesque spot on the beach she'd imagined is not one of the places the parks and recreation office offers as a venue, check with several different beach sites, and always do a walk-through of any venue, at the beach or otherwise!

Pull permits- Your parks and recreation office should be able to tell you which permits need to be applied for and what the process entails. Once you've got that little piece of paper in hand, you should be ready to go, but it's an important piece of paper so make it a priority well before your planned wedding date.

Staging your wedding site:

Candles make your wedding site beautiful, but there are some things to consider for beach weddings. For instance, tall vases work better than short ones for keeping your candles lit. Light them once they are inside the vase, to make things easier. Using an electric lighter, which will give you length for getting inside the vase, is best.

Be sure to supply adequate light if your wedding is going to be in the evening. Combine twinkle lights, candles and crystals for all the light and sparkle you can handle.

Lighting is key

You want the wedding site to be romantic and memorable for you and your groom, and your wedding guests. Lighting is the simplest way to get the maximum effect in this department.

Beach lighting three ways

LED up lighting

LED up lighting is easily the most versatile option for your lighting and can easily be done, even outdoors. There are so many colors available, so matching your wedding theme ideas will be a breeze. Get the look by using LED risers underneath vases, and run them down the aisle on either side. You can also use them to up light a fabric draped arch, especially if you plan an evening wedding.

Wedding Candles

Wedding candles are the most classic and familiar wedding lighting choice and will work in many ways, in centerpieces or in wedding aisle decorations.

Tiki Torches

For Tropical weddings there is no better opportunity to use this type of lighting. They look amazing for tropical themes and can be decorated to better match your wedding. They make great markers for your site, and give a soft romantic glow.
