I'm really not sure how brides pull off beach weddings with ease, without hiring professionals! There are just so many things that happen during these beach events, but we hope our few tips will help. This beach set is beautiful but it doesn't come without a lot of effort!
Check out our Tips to see how to pull this look off!
Breaking down the beach set up. 1st you must get the arbor stabilized, easy right?! You never new how windy the beach was until you see your arbor blow down the beach, funny but true! Make sure it has side hooks and anchor 2-3 foot stakes in the sand to keep it in place!
Brides love beautiful beach chair decor and it goes on pretty easy, they catch is getting it to stay in place until ceremony is over. The secret to keeping all of your chairs in the sand, drum roll please.... Put your booty in them! You sit in each one and they will stay, easy fix!
We all love flowers, shells, tulle etc... decorating the arbor! The key is lots and lots of zip ties. Just as the mighty wind wants to wisk away your arbor, it loves to blow away all your fine decor. So tie it tight, and keep it secure!
Everyone tends to enjoy the soothing sounds of the beach until the soothing sounds keep your guest from hearing your ceremony. Don't have your guest trying to read your lips during the vows, have a simple speaker set-up so all will be able to hear your confessions of love!
So you decided to have everyone go bare feet down the aisle, make sure you have someone to rake through the sand in the walking path before the wedding to make sure nothing dangerous is in the path to hurt their feet.
Our last Tip to Survive and Enjoy your Beach Wedding! Its so easy to go pick up a bag of fake rose petals to use for your aisle, unless your having an outdoor/beach wedding! Only dried or fresh flowers are allowed to be used in most outdoor locations, and it is the right (Green) thing to do!
