There is a certain allure to the idea of a beach wedding. The sun is shinning, the sand in white, the pictures are amazing and everything is right with the world as you finally get to marry your best friend. However, is it everything you imagine it to be? I hopped over to the wedding guide to find out, and as it turns out there are both pros and cons to saying I Do in paradise.
Beach Wedding Pros
Just imagine the bright sun, your perfect dress, and all your loved ones gathered around. I feel like I don’t have to elaborate much on this one.
As it turns out you can have an amazing wedding on the beach for as little as 6,000 dollars. So not only would you be having your wedding in paradise you also be saving an outrageous amount of money. Tell your dad this one and I’m sure he’ll be on board.
With the beach wedding you get the choice of freedom in what you wear. If you want it is completely acceptable to wear the flowing gown and the freshly tailored suit. But if you decided you didn’t want to then it is also completely acceptable to wear more comfortable clothing, an option that doesn’t really make sense for those classic church weddings.
Along with the comfort comes the relaxed atmosphere. When its at the beach it’s sort of a small vacation for everyone, and everyone is looking to have a good time and celebrate.
Beach Wedding Cons
Along with the possibility of good weather comes the possibility of bad weather. A lot of beach locations have the tendency to have fairly sporadic weather. One hour it can be sunny, and the next it will be raining, and the wind can sometimes be a problem.
There May Be Other People on the Beach
If you have your wedding on the beach and its not a private one you have to be prepared to have other people around the wedding and possibly even trying to crash it.
Some People Might Not Be Able To Make It
If you decide to have a destination wedding it comes with the draw back that not everyone might be able to make it. Some people might not have the means to travel or may not be able to get that time off of work. It makes sense, but something you need to be prepared for.
So there you have it, those are the pros and cons. When done right a beach wedding can be an amazing event, you simply have to prepare for the cons, which is more than possible. When it comes to breach weddings it all comes down to planning. While the weather does change more frequently, it is usually pretty consistent, and as long as you do your research you can be prepared. Furthermore, most places account for this and have a place inside as well in case it starts to rain. There really isn’t much you can do about the people if you get married on a public beach, besides maybe hiring some security, but getting married on a private beach is also an option. No matter what, it’s your wedding day and it will be perfect; it just up to you if the pros out-way the cons.
