Plan Ahead

When you plan a beach wedding, the venue is very important. You want a beach that blends accessibility with some degree of privacy. After all, you do not want a rogue volleyball encroaching on your wedding photos. Scout your locations carefully, giving yourself plenty of time to find your venue, reserve it, and ensure that you have all the license and permit requirements in order.sashes-beach-wedding-chairsBe ready to provide detailed lists of equipment and items, including food and beverages that will be brought to the site, as many venues need that information. Also, have an alternate venue planned, just in case things do not work out with the beach. Even the best-laid plans can go astray, but you and your wedding party can always hit the beach later for perfect pictures.airlie-wedding666x300

Rain on Your Wedding Day?

Have a plan for weather incidents as well, and plan your wedding for when there will be fewer problems with sudden rains or serious storms. For example, Florida is a favorite destination for beach weddings.Casa-Velas-WeddingThe beautiful beaches all around the state make it an ideal venue. June through November is also the Atlantic hurricane season, and the summer tends to see a lot of rain, sometimes at unpredictable intervals. That can make planning challenging, but not impossible. Off-season wedding are often a money-saver, and venues like Florida offer temperate weather through most of the late fall, winter, and early spring months. They also tend to offer early blooming seasons. This means that an off season wedding in March or even late February, when weather is more stable and temperatures are nice, are not just possible – it could be perfect. Research your chosen location to see when the ideal time will be for your wedding.brp-015

The Traditional Wedding

t_1400780311_weddingIf you are having a traditional wedding, you are going to need some traditional wedding bridal accessories. Because a traditional wedding takes place in a church or some other place of worship, you will need some thing other than what you need if you were having a civil partnership or outside wedding. The most important bridal accessory for a church wedding is the unity candle. This is a ceremonial candle that is equally lit by the bride and the groom as they are pronounced husband and wife. The candle is a symbol of uniting as one. 

The traditional wedding ceremonies do have a theme to them, but it is unlike a themed wedding such as a beach theme or a garden theme. Many faiths believe that the union of 1315f886f5dcd2c8ea647816cce8c63ea man and a woman is a bond that cannot be broken. It is a sign of purity and commitment, which has resulted in a religious theme wedding. Your bridal accessories may include a white wedding gown, white shoes, and a veil in one of four different lengths with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. The flowers represent purity and tranquillity. It is easy to see why the majority of brides choose the calla lily for a bouquet as well as the decoration for the wedding cake. 

Bridal accessories for the church also might include votive candle cups lining the isle as the bride walks down to meet your intended. These are normally white candles attached to the pews in the church. Many churches have these accessories already and do supply them if you desire them for you’re special day. The unity candle for the most part, is customized with a picture of the bride and groom or with their names. The candles also might have a prayer or a poem that the bride chooses.

This is where the flower girl and pageboy walk in front of the bride with the flower girl dropping rose petals. These are two things you will add to your bridal accessories list as things you will need. The traditional wedding will last longer than an outdoors wedding, but is just as beautiful and memorable. After the ceremony, you will take the church photos and leave for the reception. The reception venue should be decorated the night before or on the morning of the wedding.

When you hold a traditional wedding, your wedding favors could include silver name placeholders in the shape of a bell or other linked object, picture frame or a something else that compliments your wedding themes. Your traditional wedding bridal accessories are going to be as elegant or as relaxed as you want your day to be. One last thing you will want to include in your bridal accessories is the small token of love you give to your husband at the dinner. This is not the case for all traditional weddings but has been done for some
