CREATE YOUR DREAM BEACH WEDDING WITH THESE TIPS

Image by Dave Allen via Flickr

Ask nearly any little girl to teenager, and she’s very likely to have an idealized fantasy of what her wedding will be like. Sure, she may tell you about the dress, how many layers, how much embellishment; she also will tell you about whether she’s planning on wearing a tiara (or simply, “a crown”) in addition to or a beautiful veil.
She may even tell you if her veil will be shoulder length, chapel or cathedral length. Depending on who is in her favour, she’ll also be able to give you a list of her bridal party, who’ll be maid of honour and bridesmaids and flower girls. Of course, she’ll also be able to tell you about the themed colour or colours.

Any poll of young women will definitely include a dress wedding location, and you can bet that there will be more saying the beach than the monument of a church where the then Kate Middleton married Prince William of Wales.

The beach – and notably the beach in Melbourne – is all kind of memorable and beautiful. Even famous people opt for a wedding on the beach – long-time marrieds Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze had a beautiful sunset beach wedding. Aussie Olympic Gold Medallist, swimmer Jodie Henry chose a beach when she married former AFL player Tim Notting. Shelley Craft also chose the beach (It was the venue where she married Christian Sergiacomi). Other celebs who chose the beach for their vows include:

· Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber

· Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso

· Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

· Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green

· Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

· Jewel and Ty Murray

· Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

· Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey

· Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee

· Jonathan Thurston and Samantha Lynch

Luckily, it’s not too challenging find unique venues for beach weddings in Melbourne.

It helps if the venue can provide assistance with the kinds of issues that arise in beach weddings. Ask the right questions and be prepared and you can pretty much guarantee it will be taken care of. Your goal, of course, is to have the most fun, the least stressed and the ability to incorporate as many of your dream elements as possible.

For example:

If it concerns you, find out how much your ceremony and reception will be visible to the public beachgoers, or, if that will even be an issue.

Accessibility – the obvious question here will be – do you have any potential guests for whom wheelchair or other accessibility will be needed?

Guest accessibility – if your ceremony will be on the beach will your guests stand to watch you make your vows or will they be seated? Will it matter how many attendees you’ll have? Ask these questions of your venue.

Can You Hear? — At the time you’re likely to want to have the ceremony, consider the noise level at the beach. Waves are loud. Make sure the venue provides proper amplification.

Seasons in the Sun – The time of year plays a role, too. What is the weather traditionally like? Will it be high or low season for weddings? High season is when it’s most popular to visit the beach and venue. This means, more crowds and higher rates.

But the real secret to a beach wedding is to have it handled by a wedding coordinator who knows exactly what he or she is doing. It is easier to have a beachfront venue with staff experienced in such things, to handle your ceremony and reception – giving you and your groom plenty of time to focus on the fun.

    Anything beach, count me in, even though i have never thought of having my wedding there. If i should, maybe one in the Caribbean Islands, Aruba or the Miami beach, my pockets will decide that.

    One thing is, it's Less expensive and it comes with great views if you are a lover of nature. Nice post and i admire this concept.

    This is very cool, I've always liked the wedding outdoors, especially on the beach. When I met my future wife http://nikolaev-marriage-agency.com/nikolayev-place-to-look-bride/. We have long lived together and loved each other, and then we decided to get engaged. Now we have gone a lot in our lives, have now decided to make a beautiful wedding on the beach. A few tips will come in handy. Thank you and good luck in marriage.
