When it comes to planning your wedding, there are few things more important than the location. It sets the scene for the whole wedding and forms the backdrop of every photo. And where could be more picturesque than a beach? Here’s why a beach wedding is the perfect way to celebrate your love!
A beach wedding is romantic
Everyone knows the beach is super romantic. Think strolls on the beach, watching sunsets over the ocean, and proposals in the sand. So why wouldn’t it be the perfect place to say I Do? With the sound of the waves in the background, the feeling of the sand beneath your feet, and light breeze flowing through your hair, it’s a truly picture-perfect moment.
There’s plenty of space at a beach wedding
Obviously, a beach wedding is outdoors. And one thing you don’t have to worry about is space. When you marry inside a venue, they are restricted when it comes to capacity, so you have to tailor your guest list to accommodate it. But when you marry on the beach, you can invite as many or as little people as you want. Got three more people to add to the list? No problem. The beach has no restrictions (other than when you reach the shoreline) so adding a few extra seats is no problem.
The dream wedding album
Your wedding photos are something you will treasure forever. You will look back through them from time to time, perhaps display your favourite ones around your house or on social media. So, making sure you have the best backdrop to every one of those photos is so important. And a beach wedding offers the perfect scenery that will always look stunning in a photo. Imagine your first kiss with the sea meeting the shore just behind you. Or candid shots of you and your new spouse dancing in the waves. What could be more dreamy than that?
Fewer decorations needed mean savings for other things
It’s no secret that a huge chunk of any wedding budget goes on the décor. Lights, flowers, dance floors, ribbon, drapes, just to name a few. But beaches are some of the most naturally beautiful places on the planet. So, with the décor already done for you, you can save money, or just dedicate it to another part of the wedding that you want to make bigger and better. Maybe you want a new pair of shoes for the big day, or a bigger menu for you and your guests to enjoy. Whatever it is, you have the budget to do it!
A place for reunions
Most wedding venues are either dedicated, exclusive use venues, or probably a place you can’t easily revisit. But with a beach, you can go back anytime to reminisce on your perfect day. Whether it’s somewhere you escape to for your wedding anniversaries, birthdays, or even for date night (assuming the beach is local to you), there’s something really special about having ‘your’ place that holds so much meaning to you. There’s nothing more romantic than that.
