Beach nuptials are usually paired with visions of beautiful sunsets, serene ocean waves, and a cool delicate breeze. In a perfect world, this would be the ideal beach wedding, but Mother Nature has plans of her own. A beach wedding must be planned around numerous special conditions if the day is to go as smooth as the bride pictures it to be.
Insert the award-winning Cape May wedding planning team, Kaleidoscope Weddings.
From local weddings to destination weddings, we have done it all. Our team has the experience and creativity to ensure the bride’s day is seamless and completely matches her vision. Brides that go with our destination wedding services will enjoy all travel accommodations handled for guests and the wedding party alike, unlimited hours of vendor meetings, liaison between client and destination wedding coordinator, and so much more. But, before you are dead set on having a beach destination wedding, we want our clients to consider these important details that go hand in hand with a wedding in the sand.
A beach wedding dress should be simple and light. We recommend a flowy chiffon or charmeuse fabric dress. As for the veil, instead of a long and whimsical piece of fabric, consider accessorizing your updo with a headpiece or fresh flowers. Your photographer will thank you.
Make sure your guests know the ceremony will be taking place on the beach, in the sand, in the heat. This can be done through your wedding invitations or placed on your wedding website. It’s also nice to hand out welcome bags with beach essentials such as flip flops, sunscreen, fans, cold water, and towels.
There Will Be Wind
This is the number one thing most people forget about when planning a beach wedding. It’s also the number one reason why some people decide to host a wedding near the beach, not on it. Know this, anything that isn’t nailed down will probably blow away. We suggest updos for all of the wedding party and heavy, decorative seashells to keep anything from blowing away.
With the help of our experienced destination wedding coordinators and our extensive list of Philadelphia wedding vendors, you will have the best beach wedding imaginable. Contact Kaleidoscope Weddings today for a free initial consultation at 610-964-8400!
