Choosing a location for a wedding can be one of the hardest decisions to make when you are planning your wedding. You may ask yourself: should I have an indoor or an outdoor wedding? Where should the location of the wedding be? In the desert? On a beach? In the mountains? If you are leaning towards a beach wedding, here are some great reasons to convince you that beach weddings are the best!
Elegance surrounded by nature’s splendor
Don’t think that because you are having a beach wedding that you can’t have an elegant wedding. While the warm location may dictate lighter materials for your attire, elegance and sophistication can still be the order of the day, if you so choose. Likewise, beach weddings are the perfect opportunities for more casual atmospheres, it all depends on the decor chosen and the dress code stipulations on your invites. What’s great about beach weddings is that they can adapt perfectly to your style, both informal and elegant.
Minimal decoration costs
The cost of decoration for beach weddings is usually less than when getting married indoors. The beauty of the beach, ocean, and the sunset will provide all the decoration that you will need or want; add a few flowers and you have a dream wedding. Moreover, the soft colors of the sand combined with the ocean blue, complement any color scheme that you may choose for your beach wedding.
No one can deny that photographs taken at beach weddings look incredible. Not only will you be sunkisses from a few days in the sun prior to your wedding but the colors and light support stunning wedding photography.
Many beach weddings double as destination weddings; although, depending on where you live, a beach wedding may not involve you having to travel very far. For most people, getting married on a beach means traveling to a warmer climate like Mexico, which in turn can mean that your wedding party is more intimate than if you were celebrating back home, due to the logistics of people getting to your wedding. Beach weddings are, for that reason, a popular choice for elopements, with the couple taking off and getting married without any guests, or just a few. Beach wedding elopements are a great way to combine your honeymoon and reduce costs.
Imagine the ocean waves crashing upon the shore and the sun setting upon the horizon as you say “I do,” or the sea breeze caressing your hands as you share your wedding rings at your beach wedding. You may even see dolphins playing in the ocean on the horizon, smell salt in the air, then stroll off on the white sandy beach with your partner to start your life in pure happiness and romance.
