Review the TOP 12 Best Beach Wedding Locations Below
Love your input on the blog - What beach area or resort are you considering?

There are a few management concerns I wanted to tip you off about prior to booking your beach wedding site.  Best use time is important. Blistering heat or early morning fog, when the winds come up, high tide, low tide, dangers to children and public access can be major concerns.

We suggest – when selecting a beach wedding venue…

  • Ask the site management which part of the day offers the best use time. Listening to the management regarding best time of year to plan and best part of the day is a very good idea. They know their event location.
  • If they seem sketchy, look for articles and complaints on Google regarding the location. If it is nearby, visit a few times to understand the beach location and look up the tide times for the specific date.
  • Ask what the policies are for set up and break down of the ceremony and how you get to the ceremony site in your wedding dress.
  • If a beach reception, you will want to know how things can be set up, water and power concerns, and lighting the way back to cars as the sun sets.
  • Certain beaches have “invaders” protected by environmental agencies.  Many of us do not want the “wonder sea crabs” crawling through our wedding ceremony.
  • Setting your ceremony area to close to the tides, can be a disaster as it rolls in.
  • Our ever-changing earth gives a variety of sunset times. I find many couples want their vows at sunset. Beautiful yes and very photogenic with western sunsets.
  • All state and most city beaches require wedding permits. You will find links to state beaches on our WeddingLinks
  • Consider the difficulty of getting the chairs to the ceremony area and out later. The dynamics of this is time consuming and a struggle in the sand.

Creative Beach Wedding Ideas

  • No high-heels.  Have a basket of flip-flops for guests
  • Umbrellas for the guests to protect from the sun or fun sun hats as favors.
  • Sun block available for the guests.
  • When it is a beach party reception find someone to attend the children for their safety. Water is an attraction to little ones and parents may not notice their child wandering toward the water.  A play tent outfitted with fun games and a nanny may help the situation.
  • There are fun tents and colorful awnings you can rent at the party rentals.
  • I love the favors for beach weddings and found has many ideas.
  • Some resorts along the beach have transportation (golf carts) to the beach event for the elderly. Walking through sand is a struggle.
  • There are catering companies that specialize in “beach parties” offering bbqs, themes and entertainment with wedding planners to help you complete the details.
