The complete guide to plan a beach wedding !
One of the most beautiful and romantic venues for a wedding is the beach, and the sunshine is just delicious !! Fortunately we live in a country that has a good amount of sunshine almost throughout the year. There is something so calm and romantic about beach weddings and couples these days are more experimental than ever. They want to stay true to their roots, but want to celebrate the biggest day of their lives in a very fashionable and an unparalleled way.
The costal states in India have some wonderful resorts that provide the couples with ample choices !
If you are planning a wedding for around 100-150 people, beach weddings can be a dream – the salty kisses, the sandy toes !!! *dreamy*
So, if you are looking to have a beach wedding here are some tips you probably should keep in mind
THE DECOR/ MANDAP
The beach has a lot to offer and in this case less is more. The sun, sky, sand and waters can be a breathtaking view in itself, so it is advisable to keep the decor minimal and make sure the decor lifts the venue’s beauty.Stick to pastel colours to blend in with the scene or pick reds and hot pinks to contrast the beach.
Since the decor is going to be simple, you can ampe up the excitement a little with seating decor. Go against the usual satin cloth draping on seats and think sea pearls and origami flowers !!
ENTRANCE / AISLE RUNNERS
With the beach being an open place you must mark the borders of the ceremony area and an entrance arch is the perfect way to mark the exact place of the ceremony.
GUIDE YOUR GUESTS
When the event happens in an open place, the guests will need a little bit of guidance. Last thing you want is a lost guest :p
SHADE FOR THE GUESTS
Just in case it gets too sunny make sure your guests have an umbrella, shades or hand fans !
Have them go ” oooo ahhhh ” about your wedding, not the weather :p I loooveee the idea of the order of events being printed on cardboards that can be used as fans! 😀 If you’re up for it, this can be a DIY item too.
LET THE GUESTS COOL OFF !
It is very important for your guests to stay hydrated throughout the ceremony as Indian weddings can be a little long. Body mists, cold water and cool cocktails is the best way to do so!! Don’t we all love a little spray of mist on a warm day?
Since beach weddings are not as expensive, you can spend those extra bucks on a stunning wedding cake. What better than having a cake with unique design and the best of flavours ?!
Let ’em eat cake, eh ? 😀
